Hello fellow Datsun fans. My name is Terry. I have decided after many years of wanting to buy a Datsun 200B project. My former wife Always stopped me. Now single I'm going to purchase one. It will be a budget build though. I'm hoping to use the knowledge in these forums to help my build.

Hi everyone, :D

I'm currently budget building a Datsun 1600 to compete in Improved Production Vic 1.6-2.0l class in 2017.

Previously I raced a 1200 coupe (Steve Newing's old car) powered by an A series 1568cc in <1600cc sports sedans. That was a good little car, I wish I'd never sold it. Then had a few outings in an FJ20 powered Alfa 105 GTam styled 2l Sports Sedan. Due to having 3 kids and moving house a few times in the last few years, racing has been on the back burner. Now I'm finally in a better position to get back out there.

The engine is an Fj20de running Autronic smc with itbs, Eddy Woods HSD ported head, 4-1 extractors, cams, high comp forged pistons, H-beam rods, a light weight balanced & polished crank and a big baffled trap door sump.
It's backed up by a power train technologies Low MOI light weight flywheel, 5.5" multi plate clutch and a 280zx gearbox.

Basically I'm pulling all the drive train, fuel system, electrics & RX-7 front calipers out of my old Alfa and dropping it all in a CAMS caged 1600 rolling shell. The Alfa will eventually receive a Nord or twin spark engine, Alfa box and be all happy and Alfa-ry again.

Thanks to the great info I've found on this forum, I've learned about turning the front cross member around and swapping the mounts to accommodate the FJ and I think I've got some idea of where to start with a suspension base setting for spring rates, bars, shocks etc.
The car has adjustable LCAs and castor bars already, disk brake rear and a few other handy bits and pieces. I'll probably go for some Verada disks on the front to combine with the RX-7 calipers..... unless I can stuff 3000GT discs in the rx calipers?

I'm still trying to get my head around a good budget friendly diff set up, but will post that in another section and hopefully you guys can help me out with suggestions :thumbsup:

Also still deciding on what 15" wheels to run.

So that's my Newbie intro, I'm happy to be here.

Cheers,
Sam.

Hi everyone

I'm Davey from the uk

I have had many datsuns over the years and now own a 280c 430 sedan and also a 1974 nissan president h250 which I have got coming in from japan at some point.

I am looking for a few parts for my 430

I'm needing a new carburettor

Front chrome window set with clips

And a rear trunk chrome trim that has the long Datsun 280c emblem

Here are a couple of photos of my cars

Thanks

Hi All, just wanted to say hi, just purchase a series 2 910 Bluebird, has taken me a few years to find one in my budget, it was a one owner, you know the one that you dream about, old bloke, car about to run out of pensioner rego and i was johnny on the spot. The car has some issues that you would expect and am working on them at the moment , have been trying to get one for a while as I owned a series one 910 for about 9 years in my younger ages and also first car was a 1966 datsun 1000 2 door wagon, so been a datsun/nissan guy from way back.

Thanks for adding me to the forum

Regards Norm
