    Canby 2019 can't wait

    For those who havent been to the club page, here is some copypasta...Sad news, but hopefully something new can grow from the ashes. IMPORTANT ANNOUNCMENT: Hello to all our past and present Datsuns Northwest members and Datsun community in general. For the past 13 years Datsuns Northwest and crew have enjoyed a great time putting on many Datsun events like BBQ's, cruises, parties and of course, Canby, our 3 day campout car show. Canby has been a unique car experience to the Northwest Datsun community, with many great friends and memories made throughout the years. That being said, it is with great displeasure that we have to announce, Datsuns Northwest has closed it's doors. We are packing it in. Canby will be no more. Dave and Julie did a great job running the show for the first ten years, then Steven took the reins for the last three years and had great success bringing Datsun racing icons, John Morton and Peter Brock to our show. These last three years were some of the best yet. Thanks to Steven's leadership, we can be proud to say, Datsuns Northwest, and the Canby show is leaving on a very high note. Datsuns Northwest will be donating all of our leftover funds, shirts, sweat shirts and any other supplies to the people of Paradise, California to help them after their tragic 2018 wildfires. Thank you to all the Datsuns Northwest members and volunteers that helped keep us going for 13 years. Thank you to all the hard core Datsun owners, from all over the world, for supporting us and the Canby show all these years! Make sure to check our website occasionally, as we will be continuing to do cruises and get togethers in this coming year.

    Dude, this thing is an awesome little time capsule of the "go to mods" of the 90s/early 2000s. Love it!

    This was directly from Doug and Colleen Vandecouvering. They have been with canby since day 1, they are a credible source.

    Driveshaft measurement, 510 4 door/VG30/71C

    Made it back to the shop and measured, 48mm from the bottom out surface to center of u joint on the 300zx yoke, 36mm on the 510 one.
  15. Hey all, yesterday I measured for a driveshaft shortening on my 510/VG30/71C trans swap. Per the driveshaft shop, I was to measure from the diff flange, to the center of the universal joint with the output yoke bottomed out on the back of the trans, then subtract 1/2" to allow for installation, flex, etc. I came up with a measurement of 36.125" with the .5" subtracted. After the fact, i realized the yoke in the trans was from a Z31 driveshaft, not the 510 one. Do I need to remeasure with the 510 D/S yoke in there? or is there any "known" difference in measurements? Sudden thoughts at 3am at work on Monday...ugh!
