  1. Bummer... I’ve had good luck with them before, but that isn’t right... You might need some thicker isolators to seal it up better.
  2. Depends really on what B-sedan will let you run... And clearing 13's makes it even harder! What wheels are you running? I think the old BRE cars used a Porsche caliper, and I think there might be a Toyota caliper option if you need to stick with "production parts" If you can go aftermarket then the possibilities open up. But even then 13's are tight. I am running DP Racings 13" wheel kit, but so far they havent cleared any 13's I have tried... Supposedly they will clear original Panasports... In order to get them to clear AR Libres and the slots I have on the car right
  3. I heard rumor somewhere that they were scaling back on what he can do... also looks like he isnt taking new orders or inquires at this time - at least if you want something quickly.
  4. I need to get a set of these.... been meaning to for a while, but they look so much better then the Unis Im running.

    May or may not be the right thing to do... but I always put a dab of loctite on my drive shaft bolts.
  6. Damn that thing is cool! Not usually into 720s, but I dig those colors.

    Looks good to me! Drive the shit out of it! Throw some Hella SuperTones in there to really let people know whats up!

    215/65r15 on a 15x6 195/65r15 on 15x6 The 215s really filled the wheel wells nicely, but rubbed bad on any turn. I took a gamble and went 195s for extra clearance - they dont rub, but a 205 would have filled the fender a little better... I may just drop the front another half inch or so... None of this factors in power/gearing - taller tires will "slow" acceleration down a bit... but you can play with the tire comparisons to see how close each tire is. --- https://tiresize.com/comparison/ --- So in going from a 215/65 to a 195/65 I dro

    My bad advice... hahahah drop it onto the bumps and run it that way hahhahahaha never have to worry about it sagging under a load

    Run the tires you want - drop the truck where it needs to be... I think trucks need some sidewall... I had 215/65r15 on there but they rubbed BAD! So I dropped to a 195/65, probably could have gone 205... but 195 gives me a bit more clearance while still keeping some sidewall some people dig the big wheel low profile tire on trucks- to each there own

    You can do away with the torsion bars, but you still have the same bump stop issue. Here is where I was on stock bumps. So yea just adding those low profile bumps gained me some decent travel.

    Energy Suspension 9.9132G Ultra Low Bump Stop https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000CN9DIK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 They threaded right into the 620 mounts. I think @Crashtd420might be running something similar if not the same? At ride height

    Still on stock bumps? Gotta get some of the super low profile energy suspension ones for a little more clearance
  14. I believe the truck KA trans will bolt up and is a little shorter. Someone else will need to chyme in a confirm that thought I dont know how similar the fitment is between the 620s and the 521s - On my 620 with an S13 DE and Trans the stock shifter did hit the bench. I picked up an ebay short shifter that solved that problem.
  15. Did you really drive your Datsun if you didn't stop to take a photo? Took the truck out for a good cruise this evening. First one of the year. Sways definitely helped settle it down in the corners. Felt good to get out and cruise, missed driving this thing. Definitely want to work on the engine tune a bit this year... It runs really rich and STINKS! I know the O2 isnt hooked up cause it was causing it to stumble, and I think the IACV is having issues as well. Need to try and pull the codes through the ecu... could be an issue in the engine harness too, that was a b
  16. should be exactly the same transmission. so no different.
  17. Japanese day at larz was the last event I went to as well! Really missed going last year, but we were playing things really safe. I’m planning on the Andover one. I’ll let you know. Not sure if I’ll go in the truck or the 510.
  18. I meant to get to the Andover one last year, but it just didnt happen. Seems like its a a little bit smaller/low key. Seems like the Seacoast one can get quite big - seems like that one could be on the fence though... watched some video of one of the ones last year with a fair amount a shenanigans as people were leaving and this year it seems they implemented a bit of a "requested donation fee". Ive done the Larz Anderson Cars and Coffee before too - but its more a pain then its worth... if your not there an hour before they open you end up down on the hill... took me three tries to get
  19. We even got some snow out near the coast in Topsfield... Didnt really stick or anything, but it was coming down. Bad enough that the town decided to salt the roads... Ugggg Hopefully they dont come around again and the rest of the storm will wash it away. I did see that Seacoast Cars&Coffee is having their first event this weekend. Probably wont make it though. Gonna try and catch the first one in Andover on May 2nd.
  20. Another expensive East Coast 510 - $12k - Auto - Paint looks in decent shape, but the floors are definitely questionable. "Barn Find". Seems like a flipper. Not a bad start, but more then I would pay for it! https://newyork.craigslist.org/wch/cto/d/yonkers-datsun-510/7306960563.html
  21. Sitting on 13's again! Still need to mess around with a few things and play wheel roulette to try and get the wheel weights too clear.... Front passenger has a row of them that are just hitting... Tires are older, but in decent shape, will run them for now. Gotta keep my eyes open for a decent set of 195-205 13's... Federal says they make 595s, but nobody has them in stock... I found some no name Vitour Formulas in a 195/55r13, but no information on them, and they are still $100 bucks a tire... I think I can still get some Toyo RA1s for ~$140 each, but thats more then I was

    Wahooo! Now the fun begins! I just threw FutoFab sways on the 620. Only one quick drive on it so far, but felt a difference there. Truck is blocked in right now... but maybe next week Ill get to truely take it for a spin! I suspect the sway are going to really make a difference. I dont really want to stiffen up the suspension much, since part of what I like about it is how soft it is compared to the 510.
  23. I have the same problem with my KA alts. as Stoffregen mentioned I think its due to the lack of charge light in my case. My guess is the LEDs dont draw enough, so its not sensing the draw and not starting the charge. Ive been living with it for now... But it does require a blip to ~3k to get them charging. I just need to remember to do that a block or so away.... so its not pissing my wife off in the driveway hahaah
  24. Broke the mistresses out of the garage the other day! Fired up the 510 for the first time since she got tucked away and took her for a quick rip. Damn this car is stupid fun hahahahah! Really need to knuckle down though and swap the spare trans in... The can of bolts that rattles on decel takes alot of the fun away from driving it. Clutch feels really light too... works, but feels really light. Bleed it in the fall but didnt make a difference. Unfortunately I thinks it will be easiest to pull the whole engine and trans to do the swap since the trans bolts are so tight to the firewall I need to
