Almost Back in Action

Although we haven’t yet raced this year, we expect to be back in action soon. We are working very hard to get the car ready and have our sights set on Savannah on October 24th and Sebring later in December. A full season is planned for next year.

This short video shows some clips from […]

Guess

Can you guess where, when, and who they are?

 

Clue: They are both racing drivers…

Update

We haven’t yet competed this year. There have been some setbacks while conducting maintenance/repair and we’re working on solutions. One delay was caused by problems with the installation of a hydraulic clutch release that replaces the fork release. We decided to switch to the hydraulic system because the increased force required for the competition clutch […]

2013 HSR Sebring Historic Races Group 2 Qualifying

This is a 6-minute video of selected clips of Saturday’s Qualifying Session, when we posted a 1:37.1; our fastest lap so far at Sebring. At the checkered flag ending the session, the blue and gold #93 240Z of David Riolo passed us and, although he can lap faster than us, Alex gave chase while displaying […]

2010 510 Gathering at The Mitty

A few pictures from the 2010 Datsun gathering at The Mitty. Although we trailered our 510 racecar, our street 510 was driven 1600 miles that weekend without a glitch. This was our first visit and our first race at Road Atlanta and it was a very memorable weekend.

Update

Here’s a picture of the failed pinion gear from Savannah, with two teeth wiped out and damage to adjacent teeth. Surprisingly, the ring gear was scored, but it did not break, so it’s a good paper weight. We have now built a primary differential with new gears and new differential unit and a backup differential. […]

More on Savannah, October 2013

Another Savannah video. This one is all from clips from hand-held camera.

Updates

There is work we wanted to accomplish last year during the summer off-season, but the timing was such that we would have missed Savannah and the itch to race was too intense, plus the car was running well. As it turned out, our first event at Savannah was great; the same being said for Sebring […]

Sebring HSR Event

Sebring has been hard on us in the past. This time, however, we conquered Sebring! Our Datsun 510 had been handling well, but Alex is demanding more from the car. During practice, he reported some issues that were immediately addressed with minor suspension adjustments. The changes seemed to work, as our lap times continued to […]

Sebring is Next – December 6th – 8th

Eight and a half hours of work last Sunday included installing a new differential with the proper gearing. No other “major” work planned, but we estimate another 8 hours this weekend before heading for Sebring. Although we consider Sebring our “home” track, we haven’t been there since the catastrophic engine failure two years ago, when […]
