  1. Hey guys, Getting ready to sell my turbo 240z (http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/51633-daves-racecar-project-240z/) in a couple of weeks and need to replace the front lower control arms and ball joints on her before she goes up for sale. Anyone got some lying around? Ideally in CA to cut down on shipping cost? Many thanks, Dave
  2. The dampers come in pairs. I used the same shocks front and back. Dave
  3. tamo3, I used the gland nuts and female sides that come with the the dampers. The females were ground down and filed out then welded onto the top of the strut tubes, this is Step 13, 14 and 21. Best of luck! Dave
  4. Docaam, I've never sat a VK45 next to a VK56, but I'd put money the latter has a higher block height, which I'd imagine would contribute to it's width. I was planning on running a megasquirt ECU, so I'm unclear what donor parts you'd need. Gatsby, Sorry to disappoint. The things I have left over are in the for sale thread http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/111846-vk56de-07-vct-8000mi-g37-6-speed-box-trans-adaptor-2x-hayabusa-throttle-bodies-2900/ but it's all sale pending. Dave
  5. I sold the project. But if you check the pics on the previous page, yes the engine (sans exhaust manifold) fit just fine. I'm confident I could've made it work, I still have the engine, so maybe I'll pick up another S30 chassis and go from there. Dave
  6. HK240ZT, Please forgive my abrupt response, I was not having a great day: not an excuse though. I have no direct experience, but if you were serious about doing this it'd seem to me a part of a much larger project, like building a car where it's important to be able to change wheels quickly. I'd assume the weight benefits to such a system are pretty negligible, especially for a street car. So it'd seem expensive, hard, and to vastly limit your choice of wheels, simply so you can could do theoretically do a 30 second pit-stop, and save a few pounds of unsprung. Dave
  7. If all you want is the "ultimate racing look" (first sentence, first paragraph of that link), why don't you just get a big sticker that goes over the lugs you have? Dave
  8. Looks great dude. You going to block up the front a bit? If that's gunna go 150+ I could see it popping the bonnet with that much of a hole in the front? Dave
  9. I am not overflowing with experience/wisdom, but I had good success tuning my L28ET using these: http://forums.hybridz.org/index.php/topic/43865-tutorial-the-best-value-detonation-detectors-on-the-planet/ Sounds dorky, but it was very illuminating. I think the danger is this, your engine should not be blowing head gaskets (unless you are running L28E head gaskets on an L28ET engine? Did that, 3 head gaskets later... ). If it is detonating, and you replace the head gasket with a metal one, you're just making it more likely it'll snap some piston ring lands. The dumb earmuffs really help in at least knowing what is going on. Dave
  10. Based on verbal discussions I've had with John Washington of Reaction Research, he can do what you're looking for: 480.229.1831, info@ReactionResearch.com Dave
  11. Looks like a boy wire spool and a girl wire had lots of fun in your interior. Dave
  12. I know it's not strictly car related, but I need this done to make any more progress: I finished the wiring in my house box to run the new welder circuit: Dave
