  1. Banged the front of the 280ZX wrecking the aero and a few other things at Bathurst this year but why not drive around with the camera on and enjoy the scenery
  2. New 370Z Category?

    For someone who has not driven a 370Z they strike me as the modern version of the S30 if we ignore the appearance. A friend of mine races one, the weight was stripped back to 1,200kg race weight including a FIA spec cage. Hello Those In Charge, let's not ignore the 370 any longer
  3. New 370Z Category?

    We have a 350Z category and the 370Z has not escaped the dreaded LS engine transplant scourge, looking around there is no particular site that caters specifically for modded 370's so maybe? After all hybrid Z's don't stop at a particular model and some fresh site traffic would do no harm so is a 370Z category possible, a good idea?
  4. S30 track car / HR swap

    Just ran across this hidden weapon, be good if you put some incar vids in the motorsport section.
  5. New 370Z Category?

    Seeing that there are no objections I assume that the suggestion is accepted
  6. 280ZX "shakotan style"

  7. 280ZX at Bathurst

    Don't know the details but it's naturally aspirated, nothing very special in capacity. Pretty light car too and quick through the corners.
  8. 280ZX at Bathurst

    Still has semi trailing arm rear suspension.
  9. New topstage z kit

    For a change, how about you say what you would be prepared to pay for such a kit. It looks like it would require to be bonded to fit, are you prepared to do that or pay to get it done? I mess around with some fibreglass body stuff, given the time that can be involved often there is no profit to be made, people just won't pay.
  10. My New 1988 300zx Turbo project

    So this project involves fixing up rat damage? Lol, as long as they didn't piss in the car much, highly corrosive rat urine.
  11. Good parts from 1982 on 1979

    You have the two cars to check and measure but it sounds like a roof transplant is required ie cut the roof (turret) off one and put it on the other. Specialist welding required but it's the sort of job any body shop should be able to do, if they want to.
  12. 2014 mustang spindle conversion

    Well you asked for comments, guess I'm not sure what you are trying to accomplish other than to convert to a five stud big brake setup. These days if there is already something available off the shelf then I don't try to reinvent the wheel, the amount and variety of S chassis suspension gear available is almost infinite and staying all Nissan has it's plus too.
  13. So are you selling them or what?
  14. Silvermine R180 Stub Axles?

    Forgings > billet, sounds good Mr Patten.
  15. 2014 mustang spindle conversion

    If you are going to do a real upgrade then it should include a larger diameter hollow stub axle. I believe that S chassis Nissans have this and of course there is a ship load of aftermarket parts out there for them. Including bigger brakes from the Z32 conversion up. S14/15 are best.
  16. Poly Diff Mount?

    For a diff mount the OE one would be fine, not all poly mounts are better.
  17. 280ZX at Bathurst

    Well I think that car sounds gorgeous, the engine, the transmission, the whole combination, so much better than the sanitised 'sports' pretend race cars the makers want to sell us.
  18. New topstage z kit

    Skyline, I'm damn hard to please but your kit is the best I've ever seen, seriously. All you have to overcome is tight arse Z owners who want but can't pay.
  19. New topstage z kit

    Depends how serious you are, low gives more grip. Make the front part removable and use a low loading trailer works.
  20. 6l80e fit in a 75 280z?

    For the 6L80E if you get the complete harness and computer plus are able to connect up all the sensors etc then it should work. For a light sports car though the 4L85E is a better proposition, with a 3.7 diff you will get all the speed you need, say 260 kph with a reasonable engine. Aftermarket controllers are available if you want electronic. There is some stuff around for the 6L but no real knowledge of that. Whichever way you go it's going to be good.
  21. 280ZX at Bathurst

    Not my car guys although I have followed it's back yard type development for a few years, he (Phil) is going pretty fast there but not on the limit. I do have a auto V8 280ZX but had a minor incident at the same meeting which slowed me down. Phil blew a couple of R200 diffs last year hence the 9", the year before it was engine lube problems.
  22. Hybrid Z Wind Tunnel Test

    Can't recall if there was a complete summary of all the results plus conclusions made of these tests but something like that would be gold. Apparently Freddy at Top Stage AU has done some wind tunnel testing of aero bits for a time attack S30, pretty outrageous compared with the old school race aero.
  23. RB/SR/VQ/VK swaps for 280ZX (s130)

    Just an observation, the 280ZX is a bitch to fit a V engine in, well a LS anyway. Specifically the exhaust, much custom $ work.
  24. S14 has much better geometry than either the S13 or Z32. But I race so that's where I'm coming from, for cruising it would not matter.
  25. Better off with a S14 rear if the track suits.
