  1. 33 psi. in the front and 29 psi. in the rear is where my car likes it best. Yours may be slightly different. http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/83577-the-build-of-a-240z-by-310z/page-5
  2. The parts I see are worth more than the price. The rust I see would send me in another direction but it depends on your local area. In an area where rusted out Zs are the norm that might be an OK car to start with. In my area I would spend a little more and get a body that did not need so much work.
  3. I had a set given to me and I will most likely pass them on to someone in need.
  4. That looks good, fit is just right. Will your car be ready for any of the Trinity Touring Car events this year?
  5. My 2 cents as I have stated before is that five spoke wheels with a four lug pattern does not look right, no matter how cool the wheels are. There are three solution to this issue. 1. convert to five lugs 2. convert to pin drive and cover holes with a plate. Or wheels made for a pin drive set up. 3. get a different set of wheels So, I am not sure why no one is interested in Jongbloed wheels. To my knowledge they are still made in Southern California. http://jongbloedracing.com/wordpress/ The first time I saw a set of their old classic race wheels I was hooked. The set I saw were just to wide for my build. Their 214 aero is similar to their old race wheel. Then there are just some old wheels like my BBS magnesium race wheels.
  6. I also like them both. Without seeing them on a Z, I prefer the Riverside's straight spokes to the slightly curved Miramar.
  7. Looks really nice. Put some 16x7 or 8in. wheels with 0-offset and you are set as far as looks go.
  8. Watch ebay, they come up from time to time usually from over seas. A set sold for $1200 last year.
  9. The center fins tend to get broken when a floor jack is used that has raised edges. The raised edges place presure on the center fins and brake them off when the jack is not positioned properly. Make sure you have a good view of the two bottom center fins. I got a buddy deal about 7 yr. ago for $200.
  10. Another issue on the same topic is tire selection. R-compound tires are available in 15 in. and some non-high preformance tires. However, high performance street tires have a very limited selection. I have 16x8 without flares. As 15 in. tire selections decreased about 6-7 yr. ago used 15 in wheels started showing up on ebay. As long as you are willing to run R-compound tires there will be tires available. Most vintage race cars run a 15 in. wheel so availability will still be around.
  11. Those are some very nice Z cars being built, Rooger82, Andreas, and The Crusher.
  12. I know nothing about the wheel and how it fits, although it looks good. However, it looks heavy as Michael noted. A lot of mass on the outer wheel. The Enkei -92 size 15x7 I use to have weighed 13.5 lb. The BBS Magneisum race wheels I run sized 16x8 are 12.5 lb. In my opinion for a Z, if a wheel is near 15 lb. you need to consider something else. Looks are not everything.
