  1. Here's one photo how the garage looks from outside. I have ordered lots of parts lately, hopefully they arrive soon so I can share some progress with you!
  2. Renowating the new garage was not that easy, so it's still ongoing but heres something that has happened lately. So I moved away from our 120m2 garage to my own 60m2 garage (it might sound good but im also renting a space for my friends BMW for a while to pay the loan) Heres how it looks at the moment, sorry i couldn't take a photo from outside because of a snow storm in May.. So basically the whole 46m2 downstairs is only for fabricating and building the car, then we made 18m2 upstairs for storaging. As you can see it's still ongoing progress but it's getting forward all the time! Then the 510.. We got the right side rear flare installation before i left the old garage. Last week I got the idea of getting rid of the stock steering box and change it to rack and pinion steering. Got myself a 260z front subframe and fitted it in, cutted TC rod mounting points away from the front of the engine bay and installed them to rear just like in the Z. Tomorrow im going to pickup 240z steering rack and column and then I order outer tie rods from Technotoy.
  3. Hi! Life has been busy for a while so I have totally forgot to keep this topic posted ! Lately I've got new job, new garage last Friday and lots of another stuff has kept me busy but I've had some time to work with the 510 also ! Here's couple of Iphone pictures how to car looks like at the moment. I will post up better introduction about last 5months in couple of weeks when we get the renevation of the new garage done !
  4. Hello! Idea of just fitting flares to four door escalated pretty badly, thanks to my friend who made 90% of these. So the body, door and wheelwell was modified to make those flares fit with fully functionable rear door. I think that these came out great, i have anyone else fitting flares to four door like this. It was maybe too much work for just a track day build but these are something to show in the car shows too. I will post photos how they look like when the car is on it's wheel next week when i get new parts to the rear axle. Till next week! -Jarno
  5. I'm not dead ! It's been quiet from my side for past two months but progress have been happening. Fitting the flares to the car is a big project but hopefully we will get the left side ready this saturday so I can share it with you guys! During the time I have made a transmission holder ( actually V1, V1,5) and V2 is now under progress. Will share photos of it on the weekend too! Some stuff for the engine arrived today and my new wheels will arrive in three weeks! Same volk rays mesh that i got now but 13" ! I need to get the crank balanced and then we can build the block! I'm doing the V1 engine with wet sump instead of drysump for two reasons. -Our teams other car got the same setup and it has been running good for the last two years so why it would not work on my engine? -Good wet sump system cost like 700euros compared to good drysump system which is 5000euro + I have bought all the fuel equipment (tanks,pumps, filters, fuel lines and AN fittings) ready so when we get the rear flare installation ready I will start to fit the fuel equipment and do small fitting stuff because soon it's time to move to new carage so dont want to start any other big project before it! Plan is to get the car to the paint shop next summer. Let's hope that i dont have anymore ideas that will ruin that plan hah! This time it was more text than photos but here's one photo from last Thursday when I modified the rear subframe to fit my new 2.5" exhaust.
  6. That was my first idea but assembling them more down could have caused tire to hit the flare when wheels are fully turned in speed. Also in the original BRE race car the rears are flush and the front comes a bit over the the line.
  7. Yeah, i didn't want to go with the flares at the first point but fitting these tires into stock body with that ride height was hopeless.
  8. These are 235/45/13 so they are 9,25" tires and I'm going to go with 240mm wide slicks in the future.
  9. This is a strong maybe, where the car sits now theres 10cm from the rear subframe to ground and 45mm from tire to fender. This is first racer for me so cant be sure is that 45mm enough suspension travel or not. On front theres 65mm from tire to fender but fronts need to turn. Atleast the stance looks good in my opinion but lets see what happens when i get to drive this thing. Yes the car being four door caused extra trouble, hopefully the end result is good when we get this done.
  10. Couple photos, sorry flare haters. rear flares need massive modification, will post pictures when its ready.
  11. Hi! Yeah I got the idea to flip them by reading this guys project topic on 510 realm(?) http://www.speedhunters.com/2016/09/datsun-time-attacker-gm-ecotec-power/ If i remember right he said something like ”they suck when they are upside down but when you flip them over they work better”
  12. Hi guys. It's been a while, i'm sorry for a lack of posts here. (If you wanna see the progress real time check my instagram @japrnoo !) So whats been up? I finally got the front coilovers, they are ground control coils with Koni race shocks. On the same deal i got DPracing aluminium hubs, they are great because they got the centers for discs machined to the hub! Today I installed new bearings on them and APracing 267mm disc + they got ARP wheel studs. Now I just need to find the center washer and nut to install the hub. I'm sorry Banzai but this is the way that this car is going now, sneak peak of the +55mm fender flares that i got. I will show how they fit when they are fully installed. Installed the Ground control coilovers the "right way" (these are upsidedown coilovers) the assembly was a bit of a trick to make but managed to do it myself! Sorry for the crappy phone pics, forgot my camera to home couple times. First my friend made me new upper ends, these are made from aluminium with 10mm thread on top and 14mm on bottom for the strut. Then I made 20mm thick Nylon bushing on it. So when trying to install the coilovers the bottom end didn't fit on the control arm sleeve, the spring was also hittig the wheelwell if you forced the bottom end to fit on the control arm. I cutted the original rear shoc mounting point off. Then I made 10mm thread inside the rear control arm, now the problem was that the strut is too close to control arm. When the strut didn't fit on it's place i made 6mm thick sleeve on the control arm and welded it on. After this the rear strut fitted on it's place as wanted My summer vacation starts in the week, my plan is to get the car on it's wheel and fit the flares + possibly there is some changes coming on the roll cage. I will post more stuff soon!
  13. Been out of budget for a while now so started to test fit all the parts to the car before taking it to the painter. Cutted dash frame to fit, modified the metal grilles that go on the dash and then modified the dash top pad to fit with the rollcage. Then tested that the stock cauges so they will fit with the roll cage also, i'm modifying the seat holders so seat is currently on the floor. it will raise like a bit from that picture but the steering wheel felt good on that height so trying to keep the seat as low as possible. I need to make the gear stick a bit more longer to fit my hand better. I'm going to put 3 extra VDO cauges on the center console and replace the heater adjustment panel with diy switch panel. Cant choose should i save some money and make it from ABS plastic or should i buy a piece of carbon and make it more fancy.. Then started to assemble the goods that i got from technotoy tuning while I was in the states this winter, next up is to buy front coilovers and hubs so i can get the car on it's wheels. Also tested that I can fit my Tarox calipers under 13" wheel with 267mm APracing discs, more of that when i get the coilovers and hubs so i can by the discs and start to plan the caliper brackets!
  14. This has been a idea for a while but it's hard to find 13x8 wheels with +offset (i need to go with 235/45 tire to be competitive in the race series that i'm going to drive) so tire that big is pretty hard to fit under the stock wheel arches. If this would be 100% street car then i would just thorw some 14x7 with +offset and go with smaller tires but grip is big thing when you are competing against +250hp bmw m3 etc. Thank you for all the positive feedback, got a lot of motivation to work on the car, i will try to post something very soon.
  15. Thank you! I have not decided the cylinders yet. My friend has chart that you can use to calculate just the right cylinders that i will use when ordering the cylinders. Here's how the pedalbox is now hanging in there. It's not ready yet but you get the idea. It's still missing some reinforcement pieces and welds so it wont give up while racing the car. Then some plans have been changing again, due to almost every company has stopped making 14" semislick so I borrowed some 15" inch wheels that are going for my friend 240z and noticed that they are definetly too big for 510 (in my eyes) so im going to buy 13" wheels next. Test fitted 13" racing wheels from my friends 510 and they fitted on the rear brakes just perfectly. Now last thing to check is can i fit my Tarox calipers on 13" wheels with smaller disc or do i need to sell them and buy another set of calipers. Here's the current situation. So the wheels are 13x8 offset is around 0. My plan is going to get RS Watanabe type-r in same size (Offset -6) so next thing is to get somekind of flares to fit the new wheels. Been looking this photo a lot lately and think that this is the way i wanna go. Anyone know the name of the front air dam? And many of you have been asking about my rotisserie. Here's some photos and info. Front part goes in like a bumper: Rear part attaches to bumper holes: and legs are very simple:
