    Project Binkey

    I don't think that was for the masses. If it was, they would have shown how they built it. I think Nik just really wants a motorized flip front, and since this is his ridiculous project he's going to do it exactly like he wants. It would be a shame to spend a couple thousand hours on something and then think, "I wish I had..." every time you look at it.

    looking for a 240z/260 norcal 1500-2000

    You might have to update your price after the last 8 years. $2k doesn't get what it used to.

    How is the headlight rewire done? I've seen the thread about rewiring the signal lights, but not the headlights.
  4. R1Rs are fantastic. They are the only tire I like better than the Rivals. They're also excellent in the rain, so that might be a good street car option if you like to drive your car in varying conditions. We run 225/45R15 on our MR2. I'd be careful with the Rival S. You add grip compared to the regular Rival but lose longevity.
  5. Yeah, I would guess those were from the initial batch that had issues. We and a ton of other ChumpCar teams have run them with no problems recently.
  6. When did you get your tires? There seemed to be some chunking problems with Rivals when they were first released, but they've been great over the past couple years.

    L28 - 350Z 6 Speed Transmission Adapters

    Transmission mount will get mounted to holes drilled in the floor, correct?

    Exciting news! I just got a 240Z race car!

    Because it opens up the class to more people. If a car is mechanically a 240Z for everything that matters in racing, why not let it race? That's a pretty common rule.

    compressor mount for 240z?

    https://nostalgicac.com/compressors/compressors/datsun-240z-260z-280z-compressor-upgrade-kit.html I emailed them and they sold me the bracket by itself. It's pricey, but a good option if you don't want to do the fab work.

    HybridZ may be shutting down.

    I think the revenue progress bar is a great idea. It's easy to take sites like this for granted when we aren't ever confronted with them going away. Getting halfway through the year and seeing the progress bar at 25% is a good reminder that things can go away.

    AWD Subie powered Z

    It's a shame the car he started with was in such rough shape. The work he did actually looked pretty promising.
  12. Are you talking about a flat plate angled upwards, or just a horizontal extending from the back of the car?

    You might want to read the rest of the thread. I don't think he's ready for much right now.

    Brainstorming for V12 project

    I've had the same dream as you for awhile. It's not really a goal at the moment, but more of a "maybe in 10 years" thing. Since these aren't very common I have a hard time finding weight info, but the one source I've found(coincidentally, the last thread you linked) says 222KG. That's hardly more than an L28. When you make the block out of aluminum you tend to save quite a bit of weight. Swap out the enormous intake manifold for ITBs and it might be a wash from the stock balance.
