  1. Was on cruise control/auto pilot at 5:30am on the freeway. Some dumbshit came out on the freeway and went across all the lanes right in front on the two cars in front of me. So they slammed on the brakes and I was not ready for it. I tagged the brakes and turned to the left to avoid hitting the person in front of me and the car lost the rear end. 4 wheel drift directly into the concrete center divide at 70 mph. Front first then flip around and the rear. Then it was a ride all the way back across the freeway, 5 lanes. Lucky for me no one else got gathered up in it. So now after the insurance is
  2. Looks like the Z45 will be the DD now. ♥♥♥♥ happens and this is what the 50th looks like now.
  3. If you are worried about trannys. Then go get one that will do the job. TKO 600. http://www.ttcautomotive.com/English/products/TKO.asp
  4. Wow, I asked this sometime back. Why is this HybridZ with no Nissan V8 forum. Chevy, Ford are not manufactured by the same company as the Z... For that matter, not even the same continent.
  5. Dyno run finally... Not quite the numbers I was expecting but they are numbers. 245 whp and 291 lbs of torque. http://videos.streetfire.net/video/Z45-on-the-dyno_718847.htm
  6. Put in a Q45 ecu from Impul Japan. It made a very nice change in the engine. This is just a short video running at night with the new ecu. http://videos.streetfire.net/video/Test-drive-with-new-Impul_717894.htm One more. Night drive down Highland Valley rd. in San Diego. http://videos.streetfire.net/video/Z45-A-shakedown-run-on-rd_717898.htm
  7. Thanks! I was thinking about the same thing. They have a full forum up and they keep up with all the posts there also. I think I will purchase the everlast plasma.
  8. Anyone here have experience with this? I am looking at the 60 amp one from Everlast and the specs are very comparable to the ThermalDynamics Cutmaster 52. Plus the Everlast has a 5 year warrenty with alot less cash out. Let the Chinese blasting begin. I know it will happen.
  9. Then read the post directly under the one you made here. It is called a Z45 for a reason.
  10. What it sounds like inside the Z45. http://videos.streetfire.net/video/Z45-take-off-from-light_713000.htm
  11. Decided to start making up an engine torque damper. So I dug out the old box spare urethane parts. Hmm, let's see what we have here. Hey this will work. So I am using the urethane that is normally used on the front tension rods for the 84-86 300zx. Found some aluminum pipe that the bushing would just press into and cut it in the correct length. Welded on a smaller aluminum pipe to that pipe. Took off the cross bar mount from the top of the strut tower and made up a two bolt mount up point on it. Just need to measure the smaller tube length and then weld it up to the flat plate to bolt to the t
  12. Yeah, I remember you. That is a very sweet 240Z you have BTW. I would love to get one of those to add to the collection however, the wife would kill me if I added another car. Yeah. I am still building, as if that is anything new to anyone with a Z. Will find me a Procharger someday for a decent price and then attempt to fabricate it into the engine bay also. Then the LSD and I MAY be done with it for a bit. Thanks for stopping by and checking out the build thread.
  13. the Howe throwout bearings are great. Just make sure you use the 3/4 inch master with it.
  14. Just wanted to chime in with, Damn! Very nice build for all of you guys!! Zmech http://forums.hybridz.org/showthread.php?t=152957
  15. Yes a clear window in the hood would be the bomb but I would need to do some dress up like the Audi above. Drive185mph, I think you meant patience. And it did take some of that. Most of the time I just walk away when I am not thinking right. It is better to think and do with a level head.
