Hey all, I tried searching for these answers not only in the forums but on the vast interwebs as well and I guess I just haven’t seen the answer in plain English. I have a 1971 240 and it needs a lot of work (floor boards, sway bar mount on driver side [the factory mounting spot is...missing] no dash, no seats, basically a body with wheels, engine/driveline, and a lot of rust and bondo ). I would like to auto-x this car occasionally but still maintain “some” aspects of streetability. So, my questions... How strict are the limitations on “non stock” cars? I don’t have a ton of money, but I feel suspension is most important over power, what restrictions or “laws” are out there regarding coilovers and the like? What classes could I run my 240 in being a stripped down shell? As as far as engine, I know the car had triples before it came into my possession, currently has an unidentified header, unsure if they put a different cam in it...what should I expect as far as inspection at the track? With the safety aspect, when are full cages needed, and are roll bars a must for all modified cars? Any other helpful tips or advice would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Hello, Just wanted to introduce myself as a new member from central California. I have a 75' 280z that I recently acquired and have begun the process for an LQ4, T56 swap. I have already read quite a few posts on here and it seems to be a great community with a ton of knowledge that I am happy to be apart of!
So I've recently bought a 1977 Dark Blue L28E 280Z. Car has been sitting for about 10 years; I was told the car was stopped in working conditions, but it seems some work might be needed. Where do you recommend to start work on it before trying to ignite the engine? Oil and filter change? Spark plugs? Spark plugs wires? What would be the first thing to look for before running the engine, and the first thing to look after running the engine? I'm trying to bring back to life this grandpa by this time. I'll love to build it something near this: If anyone has info about this build ^ please be kind to share! Thanks for your comments
