For Sale: Datsun 510 Race Car. History goes back 20 years. Car has won SCCA National races
Very well prepared car. Full roll cage with driver door dual bars. Cage tied into strut towers. 144 raced at Gingerman and Black Hawk Farms this year. It was registered and ready to race at the ELVF at Road America. Purchase of a D Sports Racer changed plans. Car also comes with an extensive spare parts list.

Hydraulic proportioning valve to rear. Brakes work very well. Newer Hawk Blue pads. Front and Rear Anti Roll Bars. All Flex brake lines are braided stainless steel. Ermisch Steering Box and Idler Arm stiffening braces installed in 2016.
Rear cross member was just replaced (Aug) with a Datsport fully adjustable rear cross member. Cross member and mustache bar mounting bushings are aluminum. Trailing arm bushings are poly. Purchased the cross member as full assembly from Datsport in South Australia. Datsport replaces the stock trailing arm mounting brackets with approximate 1/4"thick welded brackets that have slots for easy and parallel adjustment. The through bolt has a slotted head through which the positive adjusting bolt slips. There are welded captive nuts that the adjusting bold threads into. Provides easy adjustment and a positive lock to the trailing arm position. No more sudden change in toe and no problems with the bushings binding. We have done a rough alignment. The cross member was $900. Check Datsport on Google or Face Book.

Engine was rebuilt in spring of 2016 with a Guy Henson Crankshaft. Guy changes the oil passages to provide better oiling at high rpm. He drills 1 and 3 main to provide oil passages to 1 and 3 rod journals. He also eliminates the cross drilled rod journal oil passagesand provides proper drilled oil passages to the mains. Each rod journal now is oiled from one main bearing.
Crank was reground to .010 mains and the 1.889" for the Eagle connecting rods. Crank was then Nitrided and Balanced by Molnar Crankshaft of Grand Rapids, MI.Crank is also micro polished. Engine bearings are Clevite 77.
