  1. Thanks! The gas tank is mounted just like stock, I have the rubber pads. 2 on the lower part and 2 on the upper if I remember correctly. No rattles, all good.
  2. Absolutely, it's stored for the season but I've been enjoying it for sure. I think mine was particularly difficult to bleed the cooling because I deleted a lot of the piping around the motor which left me some nooks and crannies for air bubbles. Changing to the expansion tank helped it as well so it could push/pull coolant with heat cycles. An oil catch can is optional, not a must have. And the one I have vents to atmosphere rather than recirculating vapor. I don't mind smelling oil. As for the plenum, it's optional as well, the kinetix flows better than stock and is light being that it is plastic. I never drove it with the stock plenum so I can't speak to the differences. If I had an entire car, I would probably change the rear to the 350z parts. The one modification I'm still looking at is changing the entire rear setup. There's just too much drivetrain slop in my current setup.
  3. @Dat73z No worries. The calipers on the micro kit sit just a little past the hub face. Next time I have the wheels off I'll measure it.
  4. @Dat73z Sure did, the wheels fit with the T3 Micro BB Kit, no issues. Super tight right at the hub, but clears. Keep in mind these are 16x8. So barrel clearance was never in question for me. I too had rota rbr and those have great clearances. I suggest downloading the T3 template from their website. I did that, cut it out of cardboard, and test fit it to the wheel. The last picture looks a bit closer that it actually is due to the angle of the phone. The issue I had is with the kit itself. The brackets place the caliper out just a touch too far to account for rotor runout. Tolerances are that tight. I ended up filing the calipers for clearance of the rotor. If the caliper was exactly centered on the rotor, this probably wouldn't be an issue. Below you can see where the rotor contacted the caliper. I believe the rotors are for a 300zx, they seem to be the same as the rotors I had.
  5. Nice option for sure, thanks for sharing. I'm going to try the T3 micro bb kit. They are supposed to work with as low 14" r type (I have 16") but it's the caliper clearance that's the issue at the hub, not diameter. Has a 274mm rotors, current rotors are 289mm. I'm not going to miss 6% less surface area. I drive it hard but for short durations and could probably make up any difference with better pads. https://technotoytuning.com/nissan/240z/240z-front-micro-big-brake-kit
  6. Trying to get a sense of what everyone is running with their Watanabe type R wheels. My wheels just showed up, I wasn't expecting them until August so I'm not prepared to change my front brakes. I have the S12 setup currently and those don't work, and I'm not using spacers. With that, what front brakes are everyone using with their wats?
  7. Right! I was talking to a guy about that recently as well. There is another show or two in October so this may be the last show quality show. It needs to be used as designed.
  8. Zdayz was a lot of fun this year. Looking to do more activities there next year.
  9. I have an MFactory helical unit in my R200 and am very happy with it on the street. I can’t speak to how it would react on racing slicks though, I haven’t heard of anyone using them racing. But it does have a lifetime warranty.
  10. Thanks! Take it slow, consoles are kind of rare and expensive! And depending on the condition, you may want to coat the entire console with a fresh coat of the SEM trim black paint to get a uniform finish. I also polished the stainless steel trim and ash tray cover to look as new as I could get it.
  11. This is what I am currently working on. https://ratsun.net/topic/78389-72-620-truck-ka-build-tank/ 72 620 with a ka24de out of a 2001 frontier.
  12. Thanks, It's amazing how fun it is to drive. I wish I could run the spoiler on the front all of the time but here in the mountains, it would get torn off pretty quick because of the angles of driveways and entrances.
  13. Just want to say I have about 500 miles on my unit and I love it! Great product and great communication from these guys.
  14. Before putting it up for the winter, I changed wheels that have tires that are cold weather friendly. Totally changed the look, I only have these 2 pictures but I'll run them in the spring until the weather warms up. Then I'll switch back to the black wheels/tires.
