Bet that was a handful on that damp track. Would love to see a video of it full throttle on a dry track.

 

Have you finalised your Geo setup?

 

Its far away from finalised setup. I was driving with regular street setup. I have lot of work to do when winter comes.

Before that... just enjoying and driving :)

Nice build !...i see you never installed the 260z fender emblems....i will take them off your hands if your not using them ;)

 

Yes I didn´t use those emblems, but I think those were not so expensive..

 

Bought some new parts for Z:

 

New trackday wheels 18x10 ET0

I was too busy (or lazy) in winter but finally installed most of new parts. Engine is now running with Haltech Elite, and runs smooth with new BMW E92 M3 Coils. I changed boost controller from (3-way) to 4-way Mac-valve.

All billet suspension parts are in place. I started to create blade-style swaybars, but didn´t finish those, so continued this summer with stock ones. First setup was -2.5 camber in front and -1.3 in rear.

First trackday with new parts:

I started with (rising) low boost-settings and didn´t have any problem with traction. Problems came when I tried braking from high speed. I will need much bigger brakes with better brake pads (Probably Alcon calipers / Ferodo pads / 330mm disc all corners).

Handling was pretty good, but I´m going to try those new swaybars and stiffer springs.

Short video, I beated my previous 350Z lap record with awful driving :)

Would love something similar, but I don't want to run bigger than 16" wheels. Perhaps I can make an AP Racing kit but in a smaller size.

 

 

 

I would love to see some more videos of her in action once you get it all back together.

Such a beast of a car! I saw a nod to you and this car in a recent issue of Banzai magazine.

Bye the way all your older pictures are broken and can not be seen. I'm curious as to what intake manifold you are using as I am slowly building up a 2JZGTE.

Yes old links are broken, but you can find all my old images in my picture gallery. http://260z.net

 

I´m using custom made dual plenum intake manifold.
