Montana Datsun Rally

    Recommended Posts

    Hello all,

    I'm in the process of planning a Rally for us Datsun owners in Northwestern Montana.  Of course until everything with this Covid is settled I can't nail anything down.  The plan is to have something similar to the Snowball Rally.  We've set-up a Facebook page with some details https://www.facebook.com/Rising-Sun-Rally-101325171530438/?modal=admin_todo_tour .  If any of you would be interested or have suggestions please let me know.

     

    Cheers,

    Scot

    It's open to anyone who wants to join.  We plan to cap it at 50 cars, but I'm not sure thats going to be an issue.  There a pretty active roadster club up in Calgary that has shown quite a bit of interest.

    drive up to nor-cal and we can caravan out 🙂

    Back in 2000 I drove from Great Falls to Reno in a day.  It's a fun drive, but if I recall it took about 12 hours.

    Cheers,

    Seems shorter than what i was expecting; i was thinking 20-25 hours to get out there.

    So @SoCalJim we stopping over at the in-n-out in Reno or what?

    @Montana Z How did your Z run with the elevation changes? I'm running su-carbs at the moment.

    I run SU and they are fine here.  The elevation isn't too bad on the planned route.  If you opt to run the car over going to the sun highway I would recommend leaning them out 1/4 turn.  They'll be fine even if you don't, but mine do get a bit rich at 7000+ feet when the going is slow.  Also there will be no fee this year due to Covid stuff.  We just want to keep it simple for everyone.

    Cheers,

    Beautiful country, highly recommend going if you can! I live in eastern Washington and get over to that part of Montana occasionally and always love the time spent there.
