    Track events for my 240Z
  1. So Cal Nissan Track Day 10/29/17

    Cool! Make sure when you sign up on the Speedventure site that you note you are participating in the Nissan Challenge. See you there!
  2. Corner 3 Motorsports Nissan Challenge will host an event thru Speedventures.com at Streets of Willow on 10/29. This is the second year of the series and interest continues to grow. If you have questions, feel free to contact me. Hope to see you there!
  3. RS Speed Design in Glendale. Ask for Ares. (Were you going to use Sunrise Z in Glendale before Sev lost his lease?)
  4. Coolant overflow tank for 1972 240z

    I've got that same one on my 240Z.
  5. Let me start by saying that the stock brakes are more than enough to stop your 240Z in any street situation if you're running the stock L24 with SU's which makes around 117 HP to the rear wheels. I use my car for track and street in So Cal. My L24 has triple webers, lowered John Coffey suspension, coil-overs, camber plates, Toyota 4X4 front calipers up front (cost me $45 each at Pep Boys with a life time guarantee) and the Silvermine rear disc kit. My car has brakes for days and zero brake fade in 108 degree weather at Streets of Willow in June during 25 minute run sessions. I run 15" wheels, 225/50/15 on the track, 205/60/15 on the street. Just remember, the taller, wider and heavier your wheels are, the slower your car goes with that 117 HP. Have fun!
  6. AMCO or other similar brand in black for my 1970 240Z. Contact me here or at [email protected] Thanks.
  7. Datsun Patches

    Following up on an ancient thread. Looking for a large DATSUN patch to go on my drivers suit. Any leads? Thanks.
  8. Jenvey Heritage ITB (Weber DCOE Clone)

    Was just reading about this. Seems like a very cool upgrade for my L24. Just have to save up my $$$.
  9. 280Z Hood Vent Placement?

    Yes. Also a good idea. But the vent base plate is maybe 1/16" thick and the mounting screws are built in so the top is smooth. Plus, I need the louvers as high up as possible because it's the cooler air rushing over the hood that sucks the hot air out from under the hood at speed. (Some law of physics I can't name.)
  10. 280Z Hood Vent Placement?

    I'm running a 240Z L24 with a solid hood but having the head ported/polished/rebuilt to run at higher RPM's during So Cal track days which will mean even more heat under the hood so I purchased a pair of bitchin' Skillard.com louvered hood vents intended to replace the factory 280Z hood vents. I'm figuring I'll just base the placement on the left vent over the rear SU carb (and match the right side vent) when my body shop cuts the holes in the hood next week. But does anyone have the exact dimensions from the edges of the hood where the factory vent holes are set? Thanks.
  11. 280z hood vent

    Just bought a pair of vents from Skillard. Real beauties. But you have to buy a pair. (On a different note, I'm going to be cutting my 240Z hood to install them. What is the distance from the top edge of your hood to the top of the vent? And from the center line of the hood, how far are the vents spaced apart? Figuring the one vent must be over the rear SU carb. Thanks.)
  12. For those of you looking to put your Z car on the track... 30 Nissans showed up for the last event at Streets of Willow, including (4) 240Z cars! Hoping for 50+ in 2 weeks to run the full Auto Club Roval course. The event is organized thru Speedventures.com. You can check out the folks and cars behind the program here on FB: https://www.facebook.com/groups/NissanChallenge/ Or contact me here on HybridZ. Thanks!
  13. Decreasing Idle?

  14. Decreasing Idle?

    I don't have the choke lever installed anymore.
  15. Reviews wanted: MSA Retractable Seat Belt

    I have them. Not sure if they'll actually prevent my nose from breaking against my steering wheel in a major accident. That being said, it was a more comfortable option to the original lap belt set-up which guaranteed to break my nose against the steering wheel. I'd also be interested in other options if you find them. Thanks.
