  1. Could you change out the .63 5th for a .80?
  2. No, I read that, just like I said, not a diff expert lol. Never gotten into one, or needed to. Thanks for confirming what I suspected, that a whining diff needs a new gearset. I get that you want to use what you already have but I don't know if that's necessarily the best solution. In your situation, Subaru R180 would be my choice.
  3. I'm not a diff expert, but if my diff was whining, my first thought would be to rebuild it. Diffs aren't really known for wearing out, but if it is, my second thought would be to just go get another. Yours is likely a 3.54 which should be easy to find for a reasonable price. As for the problem with viscous diffs, my understanding is that if used hard, as they would be on a track, they get hot, and just kinda stop working. And I could be wrong, but at that point I think you just have to replace the diff. I would only ever consider a CLSD or helical/torsen. The MFactory helical LSD mentioned above would likely be a good choice. There is also the OS Giken Superlock is another option which is a clutch LSD, but also quite a bit more expensive. I know Quaife LSDs used to be available, looks like they still sell them for R200s, but not sure if they're for short nose or long nose. AFAIK you can put a long nose LSD into a short nose with some work. There is also the Subaru option. Pretty easy swap, should hold up fine if you're only going with stock VQ power, especially if you won't be launching or racing the car. They came in both CLSD and torsen, a 3.54 torsen should be pretty easy to find. This may actually be the easiest option of all.
  4. I think I'd just stick with the stock diff and put an LSD in it. It's already installed, ie, no retrofitting needed, and the 350Z diff is a viscous diff, which isn't exactly ideal. On top of the mounts, you'd also need to work out adapting the axles, and I don't know if there's a product out there to handle that, but if not, that could be pretty costly. Seems like a lot of work for not much benefit.
  5. Yes, where it says "Drag files here to attach or choose files" then double click attached file to insert into post. When I do that, this is the result. Wonder if this has to do with you being a donating member? [image] - 341426.jfif
  6. Hi, Not sure what I'm missing here, but I cannot figure out how to upload images directly from my computer. Images post just fine if using an image URL, but I can only manage to upload an image as an attachment, which can then only be downloaded, doesn't actually show the photo in the post. What am I missing? Thanks.
  7. I saw that video and originally had it linked in my post. Further research revealed that it has an LS3 in it, which is reflected in the edits to my post. I think the reason the guy thought it had a Lamborghini V12 in it is because that same shop is putting one into a Corvette, I'm guessing he's familiar with the shop.
  8. Toolman posted a photo of this car in his thread, and it caught my eye. Took a minute to find any info on it, but it was displayed at Toyo Tires Treadpass booth at SEMA. Still haven't found out who owns or built it, but it has Apex's Track Attack kit on it, and, apparently, a Lamborghini V12! (Edit - wrong! no V12) Looks like a pretty high dollar build. I'm hoping some more info about the car will come out soon. Edit: Since posting this I have found out who built the car, along with an engine bay shot. Someone doing a tour of the booth with Larry Chen said it was a V12, and I assumed he actually knew what he was talking about. It is not a Lamborghini V12 lol. It's an LS. Still looks like a nice car, but not nearly as exotic an engine choice as I was originally led to believe. Not sure if they're custom or not, but the flares look like MSA Bubble Flares from years ago. I never really liked the bubble flares but they look really good here.
  9. Any more info on these cars? Do you know who built them? I've googled and can't find anything on the green car. Edit: I've now found that it was at the Toyo Tires Treadpass Booth, and some additional photos of the car, but still no sign of who built it. It has Apex's Track Attack Kit on it, can't be too many of those around.
  10. Don't know if he still does them, but John C gave his hood and hatch molds to Stan at Benchmark Composites. Unfortunately no one seems to be aware of this source, so I don't know if that's still an option.
  11. Friendly reminder that all posts on this forum are to be in English, forum rule #5.
  12. If you want a cruiser, I'm guessing you're looking for a fairly stock car. If so, I think I'd sell these to one of these people offering to buy them, and get a nicer car from the US and import it. Both of these cars sound extremely rough, and I don't think there's an easy way to fix the damage you're looking at here.
  13. Have you looked underneath? Maybe the car took a hit to the suspension and not the body. That's some pretty unusual damage if the body is straight so hard to say what happened without more info. Also curious as to what that structure in the rear of the car is for, doesn't look like a typical roll bar or harness bar. Looks like it has something to do with the damage you're looking at, maybe some kind of ghetto reinforcement to the damaged area.
