    I see a bit of the same issue I hope we all have, Tail happy even with wide tires. Nice Job, Nice Video. R
  2. No expert, but cantilevering off of the mount is probably not a good idea. JCI has a mount that does the 4L60 and it ties into the floor. The CXR ties into the front mounts and into the tunnel. Keeping the stock mount may or may not be the answer it may be better to start from scratch. CXR on the left with a T56 JCI on the right with a 4L60E I hope. HTH, Richard.

    Here are the pics of the progress. Sorry so few, there was a deadline to get it all done.

    205 tires on the rear, I definitely need more tire. LOL. Thanks for the input. Richard.

    Update time. Over the last few weeks, we replaced all the struts, all the springs, added rear stubs from a 280 (28 spline vs 24), added rear discs, added adjustable rear arms, shortened the driver side axle and got it all back together. Holy cow was it a lot of work. Pulling apart old (really old) stuff was easy when I was younger. I try to post a pick or two. My question is every LSZ tail happy? We used Eibach springs, KYB struts, Big front bar that came from another Z and an ST rear bar. This has alway been a street car, just trying to make it a little more predictable. May have to mess with alignment some more and/or remove rear bar, lower rear pressure. Any thoughts. I posted here as we are the LS Z crowd.

    Well we took Leslie (LSZ) out for a local autocross. I have always planned on keeping this a street car AC and all. But holy cow is this thing tail happy. My set up is Eibach springs, progressive on all four corners, I have tokico on the other car and like the eibach better. Big front bar and ST rear bar. All with KYB street struts. Should I ditch the rear bar and see how that helps? I guess my question is your set up completely all race stuff or is it more street and then race.
  7. IN the CX pictures it showed mounted all the way back, unless the parts changed. Remember I bought the complete CXR kit exhaust and all. Some others may be more forward and did their own exhaust. I did have to trim the tunnel just a little to make the CAMARO shifter work. The GTO shifter was not even close. Literally we had it all in and tried to put the transmission mount in and the bell housing hit the hard lines for fuel and brakes. I could have beat the tunnel and probably made it go further back, but did not. Also I am not sure if it means anything but I have a series one 240Z. Also, I am at 2 degrees down on the engine/trans combo. HTH, Richard. Bo, absolutely no problem on asking more questions, I know I asked a lot before I got mine started. Richard.
  8. On the CXR kit it is intended to go in the furthest holes back. My problem was it couldn't, the lines at the front of the tunnel got into the back of the bell housing, so it went one hole forward. The exhaust is now tight but it fits. If there is any way to get it as far back as possible it would help in the long run. JMHO, Richard

    Yup, went from no brakes to great brakes, new booster was magic. Keep it simple keep it easy. Richard.

    Sounds like the regulator is bleeding off the pressure. I could be easily wrong, but the key several times helping is a good indicator of faulty regulator. HTH, Richard.
