    DATSANITI - '80 210 Wagon VQ35 Swap

    This is damn near my favorite Ratsun build to date.

    Finally something worthy of an update to this boring thing. This car has finally been pushed over to 176,000 miles, and last October ran around Road Atlanta again for Z Nationals / ZCON 2018. Decided after last year, I needed much more brake and more tire, so I installed 14'' brakes from the sport Infiniti / Nissan's. Way more effective with a proper pad. (Carbotech XP12's and XP10's). Also threw a fresh set of Nexen Sur4G tires on it for good measure. Best the car has ever felt on a track. Needs a bit better suspension under it, the BC Racing coilovers don't cut it and the stock VLSD is practically done. I'm seeing a Tomei CLSD in the near future with a rear gear change.

    Sadly, the valve covers aren't serviceable (meaning you can't buy replacement spark tube seals.) When you replace them, don't buy the cheap aftermarket valve covers. They have a tendency to leak just as bad as the ones you remove. OE or bust.

    Spacers and studs are cheap man, go for it! I may have some 25mm spacers I can donate.

    When/where is the first event you'll be using this at?

    You have air in the ABS pump. IIRC, Infiniti/Nissan use Consult to cycle the ABS pump when bleeding. Obviously, this isn't something you have. What you could try doing is re-bleed the brakes and take it for a slow drive. Slam on the brakes a few times so that you can cycle the ABS pump and it should help purge the air from the ABS pump. This may take a few tries. Re-bleed the traditional way afterwards. You could always trailer it out to us in Carrollton (about 45 minutes west of Atlanta) and we could bleed it in the shop, we have the necessary tools to do so.

    Nice, that explains all of your issues. Glad that's all it was.

    Wow I just created an event in the calander, not even seeing you already did it. I'll make sure we pin an event in the Ratsun FB

    You can disable it in tune, but it would be near $300 to do that. Fortunately it takes less than 10 minutes with the ECU on hand to do that.

    P1610 is a NATS immobilizer issue. To get rid of that, just have an UpRev tuner flash the ECU and disable NATS altogether. It will never be a problem again. Also, you can kill ASCD, fuel level, and all other useless stuff you don't need. Fun fact: The biggest and best UpRev tuner is just west of Atlanta.

    Dave was having complications stemming from a cardiac issue that came about several years back. He had posted on Facebook just a week or so before that the doctors only gave him a year left. He was never very vocal about it, he was always a positive dude in any situation.
  13. I just made a thread about this, of course it hits the insomniacs group first. RIP Dave. We'll miss ya bud.

    To those of you that have been around long enough to remember him, Dave Patterson aka Pumpkin210 who used to frequent Ratsun up until a hiatus a few years back passed away earlier. When I joined Ratsun a long time ago, he was one of the first people I met. Nice dude, sad to have him go.
