  1. Getting closer and the weather is turning to our favor. One of the last things to do before the weekend is get the new tires mounted. And last night (after over a month of back and forth) I finally was able to pick up a spares set of rims - so that should give us the ability to keep racing should we get a puncture. That's a good thing as we are a pretty lean operation and don't have much in the way of spare part should something happen during the weekend - and it always has.
  2. I see that now: Cars/trucks by-owner in the US—$5 (starting April 15) I thought they were saying ALL for sale ads. $5 to sell a car to such a huge audience? Seems fair to me. Automotive-by-Owner Ads Rules and Resources for paid automotive-by-owner postings Q. What is the fee for paid automotive ads? A. $5. Q. How long do paid automotive listings last? A. 30 days. Q. What about reposts and renewing / renewals of existing ads? A. Reposts cost the same as a new ad ($5). The renewal feature is not available in paid categories. To move an existing ad to the top of the listings, use the repost option (see: reposting paid ads) Q. What forms of payment are accepted? A. VISA, Mastercard, American Express. Q. How do I pay for a posting? A. You will be prompted for payment at the end of the posting process. Q. Are paid ads subject to automated deletion due to user flagging? A. No. Paid ads flagged by users are reviewed by staff prior to any deletions. Q. Do I need a craigslist account to post? A. No. --carter

  4. We had our last garage night before the race next weekend and I didn't get any photos. I asked the guys to make and update and do you know what they said? Jeff does the Instagram posts and Sam does the Facebook posts. So I guess that leaves you guys with me... Sorry. Nice to know we have the social media trifecta going though. Pretty soon this little resurrected 510 racecar will be a household name right?! : ) Speaking of Facebook. Someone posted this shot of Sam scrubbing the tires at the last autocross. Notice how unloaded the left rear is! I don't know if we got a picture of that novelty skull shift knob but we definitely needed something better for the race. (last year we just borrowed the knob from Jeff's tan 510) so I got this in the mail mid week. Thanks Amazon Prime! (insert sponsorship dollars here) To put it on though, we'd need to do a little work to the shifter. Fortunately I had just the tool! M10x1.25 die FTW! Sam sent me some photos from last night. Besides getting the shift knob in place, We got the new front tow straps fabbed and mounted (thanks Jeff) Front marker lights, transponder mount, and stickers installed (thanks Sam) New polyurethane steering rack mounts (thanks boys) New mirror mounts fabbed and mounted. Door skin remounted. Plus a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Just a couple loose ends before we load up Friday and head to Shelton to take on The Ridge. Fingers crossed we spend more time on the track than behind a tow truck this year! Any of you Olympia or peninsula area ratsun guys looking for something to do next weekend, drop on by. We'll try to bring some extra Cokes.

MT sedan orange with car inspection I really like this one! Too bad you can't tell what's under the paint. Judging by the floors and engine bay though, my guess is it's not that bad. --carter

  11. We are only 2 weeks away from The Ridge now... Friday we shared a Garlic Jims pizza and got some more work done. Jeff welded up the split in the rocker. Sam mounted the new window net (they expire you know...) And I worked on getting the front valance mounted. It's not pretty - but have you seen the rest of the car? : ) Lots of other stuff too. We reversed the shifter so it sticks farther forward. WAY more comfortable. I worked on new side mirrors for quite a while but was unable to finish the mounts. Jeff and Sam spent a while looking at re-routing the air intake to hopefully improve performance and fuel efficiency but also came away with nothing to show for their efforts. New tires will be mounted this week and then it's time to make final preparations for the first race. It's coming quick!
  12. I was hoping Jeff or Sam would chime in but basically, we found that the water pump leak was not a failed seal to the block but instead a failed shaft seal so the water was pouring out the weep hole. Fortunately, Jeff had another SR20DE sitting on the garage floor so he signed it up on the organ donor program and "borrowed" its water pump. Crisis averted! So... We made it to Evergreen Speedway last weekend. The 2019 autocross experience was 1,000 times better than the 2018 autocross experience. Look, Jeff is all smiles! That's because the car ran great all day! Here was the course. So many cars there! Over 80. I haven't seen that many for a while. I had church in the morning so Jeff had already finished his first runs when I got there and Sam was in the middle of his. It was raining in the morning but was starting to dry up so I had a little better conditions than the other guys. Still a little slick out there when Jeff started round 2. http://datsun510.com/uploads/monthly_2019_04/04072019_swamp_thing_autocross_(1).MOV.4df756ffa8fac8fffe8e3a4059875f4e.MOV Rick was racing today too - his 510 is now SR20DE powered as well: http://datsun510.com/uploads/monthly_2019_04/04072019_swamp_thing_autocross_(2).MOV.7899932904521b308ccb65fcd9ef6a54.MOV You can see a dry line starting to form in this video: http://datsun510.com/uploads/monthly_2019_04/04072019_swamp_thing_autocross_(3).MOV.89020940a61d12f76009317942d69083.MOV Here's one of Sam's runs in his second round. Tires now biting while braking. http://datsun510.com/uploads/monthly_2019_04/04072019_swamp_thing_autocross_(4).MOV.cd95a1dff0ccb054f829c02d2ce0db78.MOV I was really struggling with the infield switchback here: viewing it from the grandstands helped visualize it better. I was carrying way too much speed through the left hander and then would end up pushing toward the apex cone for the right hander and then push out wide on the right hand. Turns out this section is best taken tight at low speed, rather than wide at higher speed. Here's one of Jeff's full runs: http://datsun510.com/uploads/monthly_2019_04/04072019_swamp_thing_autocross_(5).MOV.ca61c377de9c7ab634d220b84280451f.MOV And here is Sam: http://datsun510.com/uploads/monthly_2019_04/04072019_swamp_thing_autocross_(6).MOV.0c7691191d85bb377a3605d2ee1df73e.MOV Looks like a Sunday drive from the stands but I can assure you these runs are balls out! Another run during the end of the day. Engine sounds awesome! http://datsun510.com/uploads/monthly_2019_04/04072019_swamp_thing_autocross_(7).MOV.8bcfb287a67c3c7ffd6eee9e7679cacf.MOV We learned that our old tires from last year still had a little grip left in them. That tennis shoes are too wide to hit the brakes without hitting the gas pedal as well (!!!) That hitting the brakes and the gas at the same time in a car with no front valence results in a free trip around the track for any nearby cones. That we need a shift knob (all we could find was a giant novelty skull). And that we need to re-do the cage some day. It's WAY too far forward. In the end, Jeff finished 4th in RWD with me and Sam not far behind. We beat so many nicer, faster, more powerful cars in this old beat up piece of junk. It's great!
