  1. Yeah. It was basically the first cone on the slalom. Boost hit right as I was starting to turn. I didn't even bother trying to save it other than to keep it out of the wall and off of their shins ðŸĪŠ
  2. It's been quite a while since I've updated. I missed a summer trip due to some wiring issues, but did a 1000+ mile round trip to Datsunville in October. not much has changed, but I have some things in the works. For now, here is some autocross video from last weekend including a bad spin. I need more tire. And more skill 😋 LVRSCCA Round 5
  3. Here's the autocross video 🙂
  4. I just returned from a 1,907 mile road trip. Before leaving, I made a few "improvements" to the car. The first was the previously mentioned cruise control. It was not as simple as expected. The directions are pretty basic and aren't quite accurate. I ended up finding an alternate tach signal than the directions listed and had to adjust the signal to compensate beyond what the directions list. That being said, it works great and I think it actually improved my fuel mileage. I mounted the unit in the cowl area using rubber mounts to isolate any mechanical noise that might get transmitted in
  5. Here's some video of the car on the dyno from October. It made 285hp at 10psi and 345hp at 14psi on a Garrett hybrid GT3067R.
  6. I took the plunge in my search for cruise control. I just ordered an Audiovox CCS-100 from eBay (fingers crossed). It's a "sealed vintage unit" for $170 shipped. Better than the $230+ places are asking for new units or the Rostra units out there. I'm hoping it works on a turbo car. I'll get a chance to find out while the world is in quarantine and hopefully this summer on a drive to the NW at Powerland if it's still going on.
  7. Saturday I got the car dialed in on the new Silver Mine suspension and got an official weight for the car. Sadly, all that suspension tuning didn't turn into fast times at autocross on Sunday. I'm still figuring out how to drive and it's definitely tail happy at the limit. Turn in seemed better and the car set better on turn in, so something is working right. Now I just need to tune the nut behind the wheel. Rave reviews were given about the Futofab front control arms and the Byron's brackets out back. The tuner is familiar with the 510 and does set up work for
  8. Here's a video that's way too long about my Silver Mine Motorsports coilover install. I'll update with another video in about 2 weeks with my feedback and impressions from the next autocross event on March 8th.
  9. Autocross February 9, 2020. The car still had understeer due to lack of front end suspension travel. I have changed suspension set ups to the Silver Mine Motorsports since this event. I'm getting an alignment this week and the next event is soon, so I'll get a chance to provide some feedback.
  10. Here's a short video of me on the highway coming home from autocross. I found myself without traction rolling into 3rd gear.
  11. After that last autocross, I started shopping for new suspension parts. I've discovered that my front end is running out of suspension travel and bottoming out giving me understeer with the grip level I'm currently experiencing. My current set up is full length S12 struts with stock 280Z KYB inserts and T3 coil overs up front. Out back is Specialty Engineering springs and KYB shocks (probably Camero units). I would love to run Troy Ermish's stuff, but I think my set up is quite different from what he deals with. He's a smart guy and I'm sure he can cook something up, but I've gone another rout
  12. I didn't find anything I was liking, but I did find a cheap delrin "Rally Art" knob on Amazon. None of the inserts fit, so I made something work with a nylon bushing and a thread tap. I definitely want something more, but it does the job and looks better than the beat up original knob.
  13. Whoops. That was the link in YouTube to my mod list. It should work now.
  14. I'm still up and running. I haven't seen any issues recently and it seems to run fine. Here's a quick video of my best autocross time from last weekend.
  15. I just installed my new Cube R154 short throw shifter, and now it looks out of place. (not that the original shifter looked great) I'd really like to get a wood "Datsun" shift knob, but my shifter has a different thread pitch than standard Datsun/Nissan. Mine is 12mmx1.25, so I'm kind of looking at custom options or drilling out a standard knob. I like the wood style below, but I'd LOVE it if I could get it with the lower Datsun logo. I'm not looking to spend a ton of money, but I'd like a nice experience while driving. On a side note, if a wood knob is not allowed by racing sancti
