Man thats really crammed in there, the radiator looks paper thin. But its gotta haul *** as light as the 510 is.

indeed.

pretty sure we've got a thread in here with pics of a 510 in the build process with an Rb in it.

the driver nearly sits in the back seat in order to shift it.

Speaking of driving from the back seat.

I bet that RB powered 510 hauls a little bit

Thats all the info there is. That one picture. I found it and it got posted on a list of most of the major 510 people and it seemed like it was just some random mystery project that showed up at a meet and will likely never be seen agian.

A lot of 510's end up like that. Show up for one show and get hidden.

Matsuoka Racing Service in Yokohama does something like that stretch nose 510 for the Nissan Sunny trucks. I do not know what the reasoning was for this type of modification, but it does look weird. This Formula 510 is sexy, though.

It probably already does cool itself quite well. The radiator that it is using is no bigger than the stock Nissan R32-R34 Skyline Calsonic radiator. If the fan is a high CFM type, and it kinda does from the picture angle, it should be ok.
