  1. That is my goal ! Can't wait it to be ready and take it to the Nordschleife and see how it goes !
  2. Hello! Slow progress on bodywork. We fixed both rear quarter panels and then I fitted new wider and longer fender flares on. Now we have been working on the roll cage updates, made reinforcement plates to door pipes and main x pipe. Front shock tower reinforcements. Next time it's time to add some pipeing to front, then make WRC pipes inside. More info soon !
  3. Page 3 in this topic. Will make a post of the engine with more photos when we get into it.
  4. Short spec list of my engine (will make a post about it later) L18 block re drilled 85mm -> 88mm FJ20 H profile rods (10mm longer than L18 originals) Wiseco 88mm flat tops with valve relief FIA head with large titanium valves + all titanium internals Custom chromo rockers Jenvey 45 ITB + Reverie carbon airbox Custom header with 2,5" -> 2,75" exhaust ATI damper Electric waterpump Kameari racing altenator Competition oil pan + Turbo oil pump Aiming to 200WHP. Got package from Australia. I'm in love
  5. Rocker panels done ! Next thing is making the trunk all over again, first I cutted the old shit that I made away and made a frame for the new fuel tank. Then we made new panels for the trunk, next it's time to weld them in and then the trunk is finally complete. One more picture of the future intake assembly. The plan is to get engine build this winter. Some time ago i got the rubber isolators for the intake so installed the Jenvey ITBs.
  6. Hello! Some progress again. Cutted the rocker panels aways and repaired some rust spots from the inside. New left side rocker panel is now in but forgot to take the camera to garage yesterday. Wasn't happy with the pedal box mount i made last time so cutted it away and made a new different style one. Also got the Tilton throttle pedal to match the system. This is something i made earlier this year but forgot to share it with you. My engine has the rear sump oil pan and i just got a custom racing oil pan for it so didn't want to
  7. 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!
  8. 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
  9. 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 !
  10. 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
  11. 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 balanc
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. These are 235/45/13 so they are 9,25" tires and I'm going to go with 240mm wide slicks in the future.
  15. 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.
  16. Couple photos, sorry flare haters. rear flares need massive modification, will post pictures when its ready.
  17. 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”
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. Hi guys. Not much happened for at least for a month new because been busy in other parts of life. I see that many of you have been interested about the rotisserie i made. I will take some photos of it and how it mounts next time i go to garage. (Hopefully this weekend) -Jarno
  23. Hi guys! Test fitted Tiltons today, not going to fit into 510. I have to get a different model from them. When assembled the pedalbox as low as possible pedals were 28cm from the floor. On stock pedals height is 19cm so need to get ones with cylinders facing inside the car. Florida trip was nice, these came with me back to Finland. Got all the parts to assemble the block except the pistons, i should be able to buy those by end of the month. Just need to get my trigger wheel drilled to fit the stock crank pulley. Also got the Techn
  24. A weekly post?! What?! Last night was succesful at the garage. Made new engine mounts, these are 28mm in height (stock 38mm) so i can add 10mm of nylon on top of them so they will still be stiff but still soften some ripple. Here's one photo of the L19 added some primer on it so it wont get rusty while waiting for the assembly. Next time i will drop it on the car with the transmission so i can start to make the transmission mount. So the car is now back on the jack stands and it will be there till i get to the end of my to
