  1. With and super low is my vote
  2. Slide a Miata lower under it maybe?
  3. Aww I remember being their with wiring. Long hours trying to figure it out. Then when it fires you feel like a wiring god. Haha. Great stories! I had a CA20E with all the CA18ET bolt ons running 10lbs without an intercooler for years. It didn’t mind. Such a fun 510.
  4. Clutch is still being made, it won't be sprung which sucks if you want to use if for more of a street car. We are also re scanning the block tonight, need motor mount hold patterns.
  5. I tow 3K lbs trailer with my Z24 truck. Gotta piss wind it up the hills but I only do it a few times a year. With racing and towing junk maybe 8-10 times a year. Racing we've hauled the 3k trailer with a bed full of supplies and spares and 3 dudes in the cab. Overall it's fine, some hills it slows way down but I'd rather do that then buy an overkill truck. gets 11mpg with it mega over loaded. Had to upgrade to a v6 rad since they are 2 core.
  6. I've had 2 styles. The aluminum adapter with the VW CV's which were pure junk. The adapters came loose in about a month or two. I always had to keep my eye on them and they had ton's of backlash which made your car make bad noises when turning. I also have a set of Restomod shafts. They were okay except they bottomed out on the body on my low car and the boots ripped open on both sides. They are sitting on my shop floor in need of 3 of the 4 boots......

    Needed for a current project. Maybe one of my Ratsun buddy knows of a pan laying in someones part stash. Let me know guys.

  8. Both the R160 and R180 use the same stub axles which seem to be one possible weak links. So if they are both upgraded to a clutch LSD the 180 may not hold any more power. I’ve worked on cars with over 300 HP and the R160 with a clutch LSD holds it. Luckily for us it’s hard to launch a 510 so the diff is relatively safe. The VLSD is junk. Don’t bother getting one of those.
  9. So cool! I want to see it slammed though 🙂
  10. Mike what about how the 521 has the DL bolted to the trans? What year did that stop? My 78 620 didn't have that style.
  11. Maybe you can use this to find a better match. I wish I knew this existed 5 years ago!
  12. Like Mike said but I could add if the high/low relay isn't clicking it could be the column switch too. I've see the contact get bent or corroded. easy to check with a meter.
  13. I've never wanted a 720 so bad!!!!
  14. Dude what's your phone number?  I want to look through all your junk.

      hit me up!

  15. Get a ladder rack! I love mine.
  16. Ratsun guys had better answers actually. I did post on both.
  17. I felt it most in a sustained sweeper at 60-70% G force then going on and off throttle. It was super bad. Dude! Are LSD has been getting weaker and weaker. We've been talking about re shimming it. I will try that. What breakaway would you run? I have a Chinese knock off go pro that I should mount under the car. If it gets ruined O well. We did have a blow out later that day! Maybe that mixed with the diff caused the issue. I'll check out that site for sure. The geometry is not good I don't disagree there. I've driven 510's for 20 years that's why I can tell something is different. They require extra toe but this is different. I think the low tire for that session, weak LSD and wore out bushings are causing it.
  18. Yep there are all those things. This seems more indicative of a weakness in the 510 design. Under less then full cooch loads it's very prominent. Under full race mode I use it to my advantage, to rotate the car at speed. This lower speed issues seems like something is just flexing like the rear trailing arm bushings or the sidewalls maybe? It's extreme.
  19. After 10 hours of behind the wheel racing I have a few questions you guys may be able to answer. Usually I just bug Keith from The510realm but I'd like everyone's input. I notice this mostly under yellow flag laps driving 70% (or more if I'm trying to sneakily catch some cars) That on and off throttle I can feel the rear toe in and out. I did play with the rear tow settings. I had miles of rear toe like Keith but it our car is like maybe 110WHP and it was killing our straight away speed. So we adjusted it out slowly until it felt bad and then towed it back in. Is this just normal? Is it the trailing arm bushings? I notice with other 510's I have that cheap tires with flexy sidewalls feel similar. Maybe it's just the slip angle? I just drive around it but it would be cool to make the rear feel more stable. The X-member has solid aluminum bushings.
  20. Another great race weekend! Started with some practice. Which got cut short due to a BMW money shifting which caused them to loose control and hit the barrier in front of a tower. They had to stop practice due to it. Then we did some super fun racing. Here is Carter getting the checkered flag and a second place finish! We didn't get enough points to podium but it sure was fun!! My boy found some friends and played in the dirt all weekend.
  21. I want AC in my 510 so bad!!!! Could we just use all OEM components?
  22. Yeah he build another car that is super nice. I don't remember what exactly it sounded like. I just remember it being really tall engine. The hood had the "power bulge." like your pants.
  23. I got a battery from the Nissan dealer. My SR never cranked over so fast!!!
  24. It's Tim's (Yellowcars) old engine. Not many miles on it.
