Hey! Long time listener, first time caller! This will be my second Z project, my first is here http://bringatrailer.com/listing/1974-datsun-260z-6/ my son and I had a great time preserving that car and selling it on bringatrailer.com was a fun experience. After having sold that one, I bought a former race car from a gentlemen in Michigan. Came complete with lots of spares and a nice trailer. My goal for this car is a plug and play streetable track car. Thinking 75% track car, 25% streetable car. Without loosing the ability to go back to SCCA ITS class racing if a new owner wants to do that. Open to suggestions as I go along and looking forward to sharing the progress with the group. Here are some pics in a google photos album that I'll be adding pictures to. https://goo.gl/photos/QHq85PJQmu3MSR9T9 Talk soon! Jamie
Rosco posted a topic in S30 Series - 240z, 260z, 280zThis all started several years ago when I decided I wanted to get back into a Z. I went threw 3 Z's looking for one with minimal rust, the 4th was the charm. At this point I didn't even know about HPDE's so I started building a street car. I bought a 3.0 street motor from Rebello and did the usual mods like new urethane bushings, 4 piston calipers, drums to disk, performance struts and springs… I ran it on the street like this for about 6-8 months. I had the stock ecu, wire harness and intake so I was always chasing something, electrical gremlins... One day I overheard some guys talking about HPDE"s and decided I'd give it a try so I rented a U-Haul trailer and found an event nearby. Needless to say I was hooked! I blew the stock damper apart at my first track event and that started the ball rolling with upgrades. I was tiered of chasing electrical gremlins and of course I wanted more HP so I called Rebello and ordered up ITB's and an adaptronics ECU, I sent the motor back to CA so he could set it all up and tune it. While he was building the motor I called Arizona Z and ordered a track suspension; lower control arms, coil over's, camber plates... once I got everything put back together I hit every HPDE I could for the next 2 years +/-. Of course I wanted more HP so I called Dave again and ordered up a 3.2 motor, I sent my ITB's, ECU and harness back to CA and had him tune it. While I was waiting I ordered some race seats, 5 point harnesses and a fuel cell. Got all this back together and tracked it as much as I could. I've always had to fix one thing or another (usually things I put in or wired). I'm mechanically inclined but I'm no mechanic I'm a carpenter. I was getting tiered of chasing my tail so I started looking for a shop that could work on my Z but its not something just any mechanic can work on. I met a guy named John at my first or second event who is a Z guru and he lives near me. I've asked him questions here and there over the years but never had him work on it. Recently John and a master fabricated/Cage builder "Mark" started Performance Motorsports Fabrication (PMF) I was the first in line. We met a few times and discussed my goals which are safety and reliability with keeping the dash, headliner, carpet and center console. The list we came up with is: Alt upgrade, relocate batt, custom body harness, new gauges in the stock pods, kill switches front and back, mini starter, stop what little bit of rust it has, new seat, cage, fender flares, paint, CF hood and hatch... I'll keep posting pics as we build. Enjoy!

This car is fully sorted and as reliable as a track car can be. You show up with fresh tires and fresh brakes and drive it all weekend. If you want to work on the car you can wax it while you are at the track. This car has had 7 seasons with the current motor and tranny. It's probably going to need the bottom end gone thru soon. At that time I would also have the synchros replaced in the tranny. You can go to the track this weekend with this car. It is ready now. Needs nothing to go play right now. . I will not part it out. Parts alone total more than I'm asking. No trades. If you need a trailer I have a nice 34 foot goose neck we can make a package deal on.
