    Uprated clutch master cylinder bore

    On the jeep one I had to yes, fairly easy though. I think I pulled out the jeep one and replaced it with the datsun one... and put the c clip back in.

    Uprated clutch master cylinder bore

    1979 to 1986 cj7 jeep master is 13/16 Or something like that and is $35... bolts right in. Worth a shot. Supposed to be 7/8

    Camaro IRS differential conversion

    Bingo.
  4. After looking everything over and doing some digging I came to the conclusion that using 65 mustang hubs on 240z spindles is not a cost effective solution for big brakes. I am now looking into a ball joint adapter that bolts to the control arm of the 204z and uses press in 2014 mustang ball joints. I intend to use this in conjunction with 2004 Subaru wrx coil over struts to allow the use of 5 lug 2014 mustang hubs and brakes. Which are 5x114.3 The intent is to have the outer wheel mount flange be pushed out roughly 35mm.... effectively converting our cars from a "zero offset" wheel to a "plus 35mm" wheel... aka just like the 300z and the 240sx, Toyota supra etc... It's a front steer, rear caliper spindle just like the stock 240z, once I know what the bump steer geometry will be I will have a clearer picture of things. Someone could use a widebody or flared setup if they chose to run a zero offset wheel, or use cheap and readily available 350z wheels and have stock track width. Let me know if anyone has any input on this. Good idea, bad, etc...
  5. Just finished up the lava thing I was doing in Hawaii. Heading to Oregon next week. You're welcome to come on down and say hi, see my progress, provide input from and outside point of view etc. I'll be there for a few weeks, and hope to finish it up.

    Ford 8.8 IRS swap v2.0

    Parking brake?

    Dual Ball Joint Strut Modification

    2015 mustangs use dual balljoint setups as well. Which is the reason I went with the 2014 mustang spindle on my single ball joint setup. Just something to look into if you're set on a set up.

    Alrighty, so after doing some reading, LOTS of reading, I have decided I am developing an end all, be all ultimate super 8.8 swap. The key features of THIS setup are as follows. -bolt on 2015 mustang hub assembly. No more $$$$ stub axles prone to breaking. -bolt on 2007 subaru coilover strut, buy cheap or buy ultra nice, entirely up to you. -bolt on s30 rear lower control arms... again use stock, or nice pieces like Arizona Z car etc, your choice. -will have stock 2015 mustang brake mounting points. We're talking disc brakes with built in parking brake in the caliper, and take off brakes for less than $200. There is a plethora of brake available for these cars, including Baer brakes drag setup that lets you use 15 inch wheels for sticky slicks on drag nights. -3.15, 3.31, 3.55, 3.73 or 4.09 gears And limited slip torsen differentials for $262 to $700 dollars for complete low mileage units. Super 8.8 much stronger than the 8.8 of yesteryear. -800 hp 930 cv axles COMPLETE for $1,299 for the pair. 34 spline into the diff and 32 at the hub. No more stub axles, companion flanges, or custom diff axle stubs or adapter needed. This price was quoted to me today from the "Driveshaft shop". I contacted them about custom length 2015 mustang axles and that's the price they gave me. -rebuildable cv joints, you only have to buy the custom axles once, and rebuild them as needed for much much cheaper. This setup could easily be adapted to use the 2002 and up explorer 8.8 but that would require asking the driveshaftshop to make you custom 31 spline axle stubs instead of the 34 spline ones they include in the $1299 price. This is something I am building for myself. But if anyone wants some I will gladly make extras. I'm just blown away at the prices of things for our Z cars, and decided to bring something to market that would potentially benefit the guys who want something more than oddball custom for stupid money. Aside from the custom length 930 cv axles EVERYTHING is off the shelf cheap and strong parts. Cheap brakes, cheap bearing hubs, cheap differentials, cheap limited slip. And so on. Also, I am designing a front disc brake setup as well. The idea is to use all 4 disc brakes off a 2015 mustang for balanced and affordable braking. It'll require a 17 or 18 inch wheel, but the guys running 800hp turbo is engines or 2jz swaps are usually already there anyway... If you have any better suggestions for a strut I'm open to ideas.

    The super 8.8 in a nodular iron case will handle that no problem. And yes I will be offering a bolt in kit, that's the entire idea with this. My own personal goal is to have a street driven 1,000 plus hp 240z widebody with 275mm and 315mm tires, so our interests align, that's for sure.

    Questions on stub axle eliminators

    To be honest, in your shoes, I would go with the techno toy tuning setup. Then use 240sx brakes, not z32. The bearing mounts are the same, and parking brake is built into the caliper. Win win. Your only problem will be they make the uprights only work with their strut, but that's easily adapted to any modern coilover. Also, it's 500 for a pair, not bad pricing. 240sx will let you stay 4 lug, just use shortened 240sx cv axles and that's it.

    Went with srt4 coilovers because they have both a cheap market and high end ones available. The front spindles are 2014 mustang brakes, which do have plenty of options. I had to drop everything and come deal with the lava situation here in Hawaii so it'll be a few weeks before I can pick it back up. Good news being that I already have the 315 tires, so I'll be able to drop the car back on its wheels and test it all out once I come back to oregon.

    Yeah, I've seen failed chromoly cages and control arms that have failed, not a pretty sight.

    Definately glad you guys are pitching in with ideas.
  14. Thanks, had to stop and go to a different state for a few weeks, but hoping to get back to it soon and go drive it some more, but with the new suspension and diff.

    Regular mild has been great for the brake brackets that I've been building, so I'm seriously leaning towards that. And there's less chance of making it brittle, which is something I want to avoid at all costs. Uncle Sam has me pretty much booked till July, so I'm a few thousand miles away doing my thing. Brainstorming in the mean time but can't physically cut and fit anything. At least my driveshaft adapter and 315 rear tires are there, so I'll be able to do some vigorous durability testing once I bolt it all in.

    I'll look into 4130, it's easier to machine, so my brother will have an easier time with providing me with the perfect fit spindle pin sleaves...

    The Nissan and the ford hubs are completely different. And since techno toy tuning offers a really nice Nissan part for a decent price I don't think I'll be offering a Nissan specific upright. I could drill the holes for a Nissan hub if needed, but I'm not seeing any reason to bother except for people who really want it for some reason. Still debating on material, meaning towards something mild, to avoid cracking, and definately won't be stainless. Open to suggestions actually, but I see no reason why someone with a mig and gas bottle couldn't finish it themselves.

    The face itself doesn't accept the calipers, to use 1995 or 2014 rear brakes it will come with a bracket to work with the caliper you want. So I see no reason why you couldn't use any caliper you wanted, so long as you could make up some sort of bracket to fit.

    Yeah, I think the best situation for everyone involved is for me to tack every thing in a jig for it to stay true, and let everyone either weld it themselves, or trade favors with a welder etc...

    Uncle Sam has me busy for a couple weeks, after that I'm finishing the install on my own datsun, drafting up the shapes once I'm happy with them, and having it all laser cut and see what else can be done. A month or two tops.

    Agreed. I find it ironic that my 1st gen mustangs, and my firebird, and my 69 charger all have double wishbone, and my only car known for handling (although my 68 firebird is no slouch in that dept) has a strut. In fact, I find it downright amusing that most modern cars are strut based.

    That's what I'm trying to say. The 240z rack has an inner tie rod pivot width of 610mm and the wrx is 650mm. Therefore using s80 Volvo inners and 240z techno toy outers will bring the OUTER tie rod width to where you need them, but it's the inner tie rod distance being increased that will bring the angles back to very close to stock.

    Reason the Ackerman remains the same is that the mustang spindles have the same ball joint to tie rod distance as the 240z... But the tie rod is outboard by a little bit, so using a rack with a wider pivot center Like the wrx then brings this back to stock 240z geometry.

    The wheel base is the same, both front and rear, and side to side, so I'm not quite sure as to what you are asking. The reason my wheels stick out so much is that they are wide... You could stay with 17x8 inch wheels and stay withen stock fenders, I just chose not to. I've always wanted a widebody Z, and built it with 11 inch wide wheels. So the scrub radius, and the Ackerman remain the same as a 240z at factory ride height, unless you choose to change it with really wide wheels, but that is no different than a stock 240z on fat wheels.
