Hey Jim, I think the gray would look really great... another blue color you may like is a 2002 year  bmw color  Laguna Seca blue. It may be worth taking a look at?  I painted my motorcycle this blue.  Your build has given me so much inspiration for my build! Thanks

Well the new booster is in..... can’t  believe how well the old girl stops now. I believe the old booster has been failing slowly for awhile and I just grew accustom to weaker brakes over time.  The only modification i had to make was to drill and tap the clevis.   The new booster had the 10x1.25 push rod and the old was and 8.  I can’t tell you what a braking difference the new booster has made.  My wilwoods have come alive, but my back is damn old to get under that dash to many times. Lol 😂 .  Jim

Nice! What booster did you order? Stock replacement?

Parts suppliers don’t necessarily understand the difference between early and late model 240Z’s.  The late model had larger diameter push rod than earlier.  Easy fix all in all.  Like most parts for 45+ year old cars.... they need to be modified a bit to work. HTH Jim

Well I ran top 4 this weekend at autocross.  New Bridgestone tires on the rear  gave me substantially more grip over the the Kuhmo V720’s.  I’ll switch out the fronts once I cord what’s on there.  Car is really working well with all the suspension bits...... I’ve been racing for years and this is the most predictable fast car I’ve run.... just requires a lot of muscle to wrestle the wheel without power steering. Considering Silvermine electric steering kit in the future.

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.

My settings are really set more for autocross-track then street. All my suspension bits are fully adjustable on KYB G2 and cut Chevy chevette rear springs and AZC cut down fronts. With cut coils math is about 220 lb fronts and 260lb rears +\-     I could use better dampening but the car work so dang good I don’t want to change it.  Also running the ST front and rears. 245’s up front and 255’s in the rear. Very neutral car the I can oversteer with throttle as needed with very little push.  Also running the T3 tower bracing and the T3 B pillar brace.  Hope that helps Richard.  Maybe you need more tire on the rear????
