James had posted a picture months ago but was told to take it down by the producers.  Pretty cool to see the keeper on there luckly for the show he was wearing cloths.

#1566068 1984 Datsun 810

Posted by ArchetypeDatsun on 22 May 2018 - 09:24 PM

I can see why your lost especially when the title said 1984 Datsun 810. The 810 only ran from 1977-1980. Just to make it easier look on the plate tag that is inside the engine bay you will see your 1984 Datsun is a 910 (maxima). Mostly kidding but it's a way to learn these cars were a little confusing when you get into them. When they ended the 810 and switched to the next model with different chassis (910) they still kept the 810 badging for whatever reason they called it Datsun 810 Maxima from 1981-1982 even though the car really is a Maxima.

I have a 1982 and a 1984 Maxima myself, my 84 has 240sx S13 coilovers front and back with 240sx control arms still kept maxima tie rods but you can use other Nissan cars suspension bits. The S13 coilovers were a direct bolt on, Datsun/Nissan really kept it pretty simple so a lot of parts cross over from new to old and old to new. Another member here did a maxima on Infiniti Q45 (Y33) coilovers which are similar to S13 240sx coilovers but with better spring rate.

Hopefully I'll have my carb issues figured out before I head that way. Gonna have my alternator rebuild at a trusted electric motor repair place so I won't have any issues with that.

Sadly my 521 didn't make the trip only made 15 miles before the alternator and SU carbs started giving me problems.

#1564101 White Zombie crashes in Netflix "Fastest Car"

Posted by ArchetypeDatsun on 14 May 2018 - 10:55 AM

Yeah its been out for months only Datsun on the show.  I thought the way John the owner of the white zombie was a bit heartless toward Abel's RX-2 which was an all original car expect the suspension and engine.  Its sad seeing two cars like that both go out, especially after john said he was gonna go easy on launch.  This type of thing can happen when your on the track and I get it just felt like John didn't really care much since even before the race started he was trash talking on the mazda. 

 

Friends of Abel were able to get a GoFundMe account to help out since Abel wasn't even going to repair the car since his family came first.  its being repaired as of right now but it will never be the same.  like the saying goes "its only original once".

I was also thinking maybe just maybe drive the 521 but that's gonna be a fun not so comfortable 6hr drive there.  Need to replace the alternator and adjust/tune the SU Carbs, would love to put the 5 speed sitting in the garage but my tools and no space in the garage to do it.

Was thinking of taking my Turbo Maxima but the turbo crapped out, previous owner put a cheapo ebay turbo.  Thinking of ordering a replacement and hope it gets here before I have to leave.

My problem is I keep buying datsuns everytime one dies lol. I got a little over a month to get my 810 running again miss not driving after it sitting for 2 fricken years. I'd like to take my 521 but I haven't put the 5 speed in yet and having some issues with it going past 60.

Sometimes I go outside and just look at my small car hoard I've collected and say, I really done myself dirty this time.
