Just read this in the Sj mercury news. Vehicle reg and gas tax will up by $25-175 to fund road work. governor says that legislation will put thousands to work. BS....when ever they propose tax hikes, they always have to say that its good for its residents..wtf

 

It's $.12 a gallon more than the $.50 tax we're already paying. You know. the tax money that was earmarked for road improvements when it was enacted. Constant game of bate and switch BS.

I believe all Datsun wheels are Interchange pre Z31. After that the shaft is larger. I'm sure come morning PST someone will chime in.

I'll bet Nissan invested a great deal of time and resources designing the rear suspension of the 510. The intent was to make a 2,100lb. car with 100hp comfortable and controllable for street use, and lets give it up, Nissan did a great job. In the interest of improving handling performance lets say you replace the stock 142/90 r13s with 215/45 R15s. With the right tire compound you just increased grip by a factor of 3, and you've pushed the suspension way beyond what it was designed to do. As you know, there are lots of upgrades that need to be made to the shocks, spring rates, sway bar, etc so the suspension can handle all that grip. At what point rubber bushings become a liability may be on the outer limit of handling, but Increase the hp and those outer limits are being visited much sooner and far more often. At that point it's perfectly logical to remove any tactile disconnect between suspension input to the driver and vice versa. Driving a high performance 510 is a gloriously direct binary experience. There is nothing modifying, correcting, or smoothing out the stream of communication between the car and the driver. Get to know that car and you can do things a fly by wire AWD ABS Traction Control 2015 WRS can't. Ah shit... I need a rag.  :w00t:

Why use a rubber? I still want to feeling EVERYTHING.

 

 

BTW what's the difference between a used tire and 10,000 used rubbers?

 

 

Ones a Goodyear and the other is a VERY GOOD year.
