mountainman Posted March 11, 2020 Report Share Posted March 11, 2020 Hi everyone, I have had this 210 since 2010 when an army buddy gave it to me. I was getting out and going to college and he was moving away and dint need it. I haven't driven it much personally but I have lent the car to some people in need of transportation. So it has had some use and some repair but mostly forgotten about, I just got it back from a buddy who let it sit for 3 years, worked like a charm... I don't need this car but it means something to me, I read about the Gambler 500 and have always been fascinated with rally type events and autocross. What options do you see in the short term to boost the datsuns chances? I want to get some nice shocks, additional cooling/reservoir would be nice, bigger springs? is that even an option? I know most of this car is unsupported and some random zx cars would make great donors, but too tough for me to coordinate that. I also have too many cars in the house as it is... I want to know: Has anyone has done such things in the past and how far did they take it? What can I realistically do with springs and shocks? What are my best resources? I'm an autozone/oreilleys guy but they disappoint. I plan on larger tires but if I change hubs/spindle then its a different story. I am getting a bigger radiator and electric fan, she's being gutted, grinded, sealed and rhino-lined. I have a union welder buddy that can help with some mods (towers, skid plate, push bar, skeleton?), I'm willing to cut her, part of her is rusting as is. Thanks for reading! Quote Link to comment
