As you can imagine at a Classic meeting, the fields are often littered with replicas of famous cars, the surprising part is that there is a genuinely large amount of the genuine article also.  This 510 is exactly that, from the GT2 class in the states an ex-Valley Datsun racer, beautifully presented by the Brown family of Timaru, a well known and respected family of Datsun enthusiasts.




An awesome Porsche, who'd have thought?

Figured seeing as I had the Sunny Coupe here now that I’d throw the ‘champs on it for shits and giggles to see just how bad the clearance issues would be.

Not so shabby from the side but you can see there's a tyre issue.

Here you can see that the front has some clearance issues.

It’s actually not all that bad as far as the rear goes, even with those large tyres on it, it would only take a little lip of the guard for them to clear perfectly, so it’s safe to say that a 7.5″ -13 is a good fit for the rear of a KPB310, you could fit wider so long as the width went inwards and the outer dimensions remained.   You could easily fit a 7.5 or greater on the front too, but would need a far more positive offset or some camber adjustable tophats to cater for that and crank some serious tyre destroying camber.

The obvious is that it would also need epic amounts of slam to go with other wheels.


This time I even created a pro little title card for the beginning of the video, wooo.

annoyingly the sound is still distorted in places, the only way to fix this is to record with something that isn’t an ipod.

I love the angry idle, it gets deliciously lumpy around 30 seconds in. Basically DR30s are awesome, FJ20s are awesome, lumpy cams are awesome, putting a big turbo on will be awesome… etc

in other news, these should clean up well.
