  1. In the beginning.... 72 rust free (for a Datsun) California Z Bits and pieces along the way (new struts, springs, air dam, wheels and tires, LSD R200 with AZC bar, bushings etc Ran the 240 with stock motor and an MSA header and exhaust in my local AutoX (11 y/o daughter ran her kart) and we both won our classes for the year.... Picked up the little gem (98 LS1 T56 with 108K on the odo), to AutoX while the Z is getting prepped.... And the games begin.. CXracing Kit ordered and on its way. Updates and a thousand questions to ask the Hybrid community as the build progresses.

    Which CV kits are best for an R200 240Z?

    Agreed.... DSS also bolts directly to the wheel side stub axle if you buy theirs but you will still need the adapter on the diff side. Moderns complete kit is hands down the top notch but it’s really pricey. On the other hand you will get what you pay for.

    Call DSS. As I said before, my problems with their product were with the stub axles not the half shafts. They use the larger/stronger 108mm CV and are very stout. You won’t break one IMO. unless they have changed then supplied hardware, that’s the only thing you may need to source on the differential side. HTH. Jim

    I’m the guy with all the DSS fit troubles. Once they got the machining right we were good to go...... but to be fair, the problem was with the stub axle not the half shafts, and the extra expense involves the stub axles as well. My biggest fear was snapping a stub axle at pace..... after I had completed the swap, the stock half shafts were still in good shape. Other than changing out some hardware, the half shafts fit fine and I run them very hard on track with and LS1. Hope that helps. Jim.

    Seats - Sparco R100 vs OMP

    I run the sparco. I’m 6-1 210lbs and I fit fine. They fit the Z well and are comfortable. Jim

    Chrome bumper guards on black bumper

    In don’t like bumper guards at all but that’s just a personal preference..... put them and see if you like it...... if you like it, it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. It’s yours to enjoy the way you want 👍🏻

    74 260z 5.3 resto mod

    Looking good..... suspension bits cleaned up nice.
  15. You might check out hoke performance too. Not sure he is doing the autotrans but his mount for the manual may be modified to work. As Richard said, JCI already has it done so that’s the easiest route.

    Sure wish it was easier to post video on the site. I could show you my whole run and you could break it down from there. Anyone know how to create a Facebook link? I have all my autoX videos on there.....

    My settings are really set more for autocross-track then street. All my suspension bits are fully adjustable on KYB G2 and cut Chevy chevette rear springs and AZC cut down fronts. With cut coils math is about 220 lb fronts and 260lb rears +\- I could use better dampening but the car work so dang good I don’t want to change it. Also running the ST front and rears. 245’s up front and 255’s in the rear. Very neutral car the I can oversteer with throttle as needed with very little push. Also running the T3 tower bracing and the T3 B pillar brace. Hope that helps Richard. Maybe you need more tire on the rear???? Jim

    Almost garunteed to run faster. Just need to save up some extra cash to make it happen. Keep up the great work..... love my Silvermine products.

    Well I ran top 4 this weekend at autocross. New Bridgestone tires on the rear gave me substantially more grip over the the Kuhmo V720’s. I’ll switch out the fronts once I cord what’s on there. Car is really working well with all the suspension bits...... I’ve been racing for years and this is the most predictable fast car I’ve run.... just requires a lot of muscle to wrestle the wheel without power steering. Considering Silvermine electric steering kit in the future.
  21. It’s one of my favorite kits.....

    Best LS Swap Kit?

    There is no best. There are many pros and cons to each kit. It’s not cheap to do it right IMO however some have done it for less than others. Research everything...... a good overview place to start is LS swap facts not opinions thread. I’m using Cxracing..... since my swap, there are things I would do different but I’m happy with what I’ve done. There is a wealth of information on this site to be had if your willing to look. My experience is that once I got started the help became more available....... just my .02. Best of luck. Jim

    I want with T3. Don’t think they were that much but i don’t remember. HUGE difference in the way the car drives and handles. The cost of new spindle pins, bushings, and labor time made the swap to the T3 easy. I track my car a lot so the improved handling and solid feel was more than worth it for me. Just my.02.
