  1. A more practical setup is to use a single turbo, something like a properly matched ball bearing Garrett will give you great all round performance with 'no worries' turbo lag. Plus it involves a quicker build which trust me is always a plus.
  2. What Neverdone said, as far as reliability goes the weak point is the bits between the R200 and the wheels.
  3. Stock exhaust manifolds are fine, the intake on these motors is everything and hard to improve significantly, GTX35/82R turbo works well. If you have spare money spend it on the intake, get pro help there.
  4. For anyone using a 4L80E make sure that the cooling lines clear the tunnel, particularly the 90* fittings out of the trans.
  5. Anyone familiar with the Mt Panorama/Bathurst circuit? Basically you go up, run along the top and then drop down to the flat. It'a seriously challenging circuit both for car and driver as you will see, on the one hand this video looks bland but the L engined S30 is super quick and would ace a whole lot of modern performance cars. Smooth is fast, enjoy. The black flag is for going too fast.
  6. One of the first aero improvements to be done with the S30 is to reduce the size of the radiator intake mouth, it's way too big and as JM said packs way too much air into the engine bay where it has nowhere useful to go. This like most things with the S30 has been done, from memory I'm guessing down to something like a 600 x 200 mm opening. Metrics, get used to them
  7. Geez I have plenty of current Z action and seriously good videos, proper circuit racing on another level to the kid stuff on public roads. Surely sort of serious amateur race videos are not going on to Faecesbook for look at me five second glory snaps. Anyway I'm not going to post any more videos here unless there are others to watch, perhaps I'm one of the few who is interested in other's GOOD properly edited videos and not just my own?
  8. Just throwing things around here, I recall that some production type race cars used to have a channel type front spoiler, front view ____.--------.____ Volvo springs to mind. Have no firm idea on how it worked, perhaps the channel worked as a diffuser.
  9. Report them, I've done that now.
  10. Better of coming to Bathurst then, not real racing but lots of flat out laps, love it
  11. Not mine, it's being chased by an EVO and doing well, not so much power wise as you will see but handling the tricky bits pretty damn nicely. Trust me
  12. The rumour that American Z owners are tight 'stay at home' arses is just that, a rumour. I'm sure that they will be lining up to race at Le Mans
  13. Eh? The consensus here seems to be that reinforcing forward of the strut towers is counter productive. Which I agree with. As a general principle all suspension and other load bearing points benefit from reinforcement, extending as necessary to other common load points.
  14. Something like this, if it's as good as it sounds, would be a much better option than transplanting a S chassis rear end into a 280ZX. Trust me, I'm a ......... : )
