  1. Just as a quick FYI while you're looking for diff center sections. If you have a long nose R200 in the car already, any center section designed for a s13 open diff will slot right in. Should open up a ton of options for you since most manufacturers sell a LSD that fits in that car.
  2. Time to sell the front brake/hub setup off this car! Asking $1050 shipped for all of it. I'd like to sell this as a full kit, but I've priced it out individually as well. Happy to wheel and deal so send me the offers! -Techno Toy Tuning 280z Aluminum hubs with lightweight CNC brake hats: $725 shipped anywhere in the continental USA. Includes lightweight hubs with new Koyo bearings. ARP extended studs m12x1.5, as well as the studs that came with the hubs, m12x1.25. 2 sets of scalloped rotors. If the scalloped rotors aren't your thing, you can buy solid rotors that will bolt up to the hats. With the scalloped rotors, it's a super light setup, you can check out my build thread for more details on the build. Designed to work with the Silvermine Motors Wilwood kit. It saves about 11lbs per side over the factory steel hubs and an equivalent 12" rotor! -Silvermine Motors Wilwood Brake Kit: $550 shipped anywhere in the Continental USA Includes calipers, brackets, 2x sets of Hawk DTC-30 pads, and a set of Hawk HPS pads. Not shown but also includes a set of blank rotors, factory hubs with new bearings and APR studs. I will also throw in some tooling I to bore out the rotors yourself on a drill press! You can also buy the rotors from Silvermine if you'd rather not modify your brake discs!
  3. Silvermine Motors rear disc conversion for sale! This is one of my favorite kits on the market. It's appropriately sized for these cars, and gives you a lot of options for pairing with larger front kits. Comes with two sets of pads, Hawk DTC-30's and Hawk HPS, all the bolts and hardware, discs and obviously the calipers. Discs (Centric blanks) aren't pictured, but they are in good shape, new for this season, and only have 2 events on them. Happy to answer specific questions about part numbers as well. Asking $450 shipped in the continental USA.
  4. Hey HybridZ Selling my Wolf Creek Racing/FutoFab axles. They're in excellent shape, and I'm going to include the Nissan R200 stub axles. These will literally slap in and you're ready to go! Never worry about blowing up u-joints ever again. These make use of the ubiquitous Porsche 930 style CV's, super strong and easy to find spares. Includes all the nuts and bolts necessary. $650 shipped in anywhere in the continental USA.
  5. Hey Zach, I've got some 15x8 bronze Rota Grids with some almost new 205/50r15 Continental Extreme Contact Sports. Wheels are basically new, been on my car twice, tires were used strictly in the rain for maybe 10 miles total. I know they aren't the Watanabe style, but they do look pretty nice on these cars!
  6. This looks like a great project! My only advice before you let unbridled enthusiasm take over, is to take a look at some potential road racing classes and their associated rule books! Stated goal is a track car, but the road race stuff might be informative when you're making some construction decisions, and it leaves your options open if you do ever want to get into some wheel to wheel action! Keep up with the photos, I'm excited to see where this goes!
  7. I've seen a few renders that seem to make the front end work nicely, most dividing up the space, painting the lower section of the bumper black, adding lights, or some combination of the 3. The rear doesn't really bother me, maybe some strategic vinyl, or a different color will make it slot together. Overall, impressed and excited. I think Nissan is moving in a good direction, and I'm excited that they are at least doing SOMETHING!
  8. Just for clarity, and because Dave did me a solid, I broke the old style bumpsteer spacer/short knuckle. There's a machined pocket that I think was the failure point on mine, but that pocket isn't present in the new style parts. Dave did take these back and shipped me a new set of the updated style. I'm still not a fan, since I'd rather not have a failure at all, so I've moved on to the Apex Engineered pieces, which are all steel. I'd love to see someone do a double sheer style mount, since more and more companies are moving to heim style outer tie rods, and with short knuckles and people using bigger wheels, it shouldn't be too much of an issue.
  9. T3 uses a significantly better strut (Koni's) vs the AZC mystery strut, so I'd let that drive my decision. I also have reservations about the AZC rear control arm, design, where if that crossbar slips, it can adjust all sorts of alignment specs. I haven't seen anyone do testing with the Apex Track Attack stuff, and I'm not sure if it's a dramatic improvement over a well sorted strut system. There are certainly theoretical improvements with a double A arm setup over the Z front end, but I'm not sure the percentage improvement. I'd be more excited about the track attack kit if it came with a modern front knuckle, rather than re-used the OEM spindle.
  10. Sounds like Godzilla will be selling a custom driveshaft. Can't imagine that a stocker off the shelf will work with this arrangement.
  11. If I didn't just do the Jerico swap in my car, I'd be rubbing my pennies together to make this swap happen!! Amazing work, love this solution. +1 for Godzilla Raceworks putting together a full kit.
