    ZCON 2016

    It's sprung way too stiff with very little travel, I will be upgrading to coil overs soon. I lapped it a few years ago on the development track next door to the Gp track, the brakes got pretty hot. There are things I'd do to the car before hitting the GP track. Don't feel bad for me, I lap at Mosport 12 to 15 days per summer in these two:

    Thanks, I kept selecting items from the "schedule" drop down menu in the header and none of them have dates. I never tried simply clicking "schedule" haha.

    Any Canadians Here?

    ZCON 2016

    I'm local to Mosport and lap there regularly with the Porsche Club of America. My Z isn't track ready and is far too low on a static drop to lap the track otherwise i'd join the HPDE for sure. I'm going to try and swing by to check things out and likely head down to the Bruce Mills car show. Anyone know what days those events are both happening? I haven't been able to see a schedule of exact dates.

    what air dam is this?

    This would get you close from ZCCJDM. I have this piece and am installing it on my car, i've trimmed it and done quite a bit of work to stiffen it (I always expect work when ordering any fiberglass piece). Not a bad piece but not a great piece of fiberglass either to be honest, it's the best available from what I gather if that's the air dam you want. The glass was a little thin for my liking even with the additional layer of glass when I ordered it, but it's still a workable piece and the shape/front is great. http://www.zccjdm.com/catalog.php/azcarbum/dt46936/pd1993603/GNOSE__ZG__JDM__FRONT_SPOILER_AIR_DAM_

    RIP John Coffey (johnc)

    Sad to hear. In my early days getting to know the Z I know John helped answer several questions. And even if he didn't address me directly his intellect and input on many technical issues was of immense help in repairing/improving my car. I know many share the same sentiment. He will definitely be missed.

    Sparco R100's in a 240Z

    I'm interested to see if these fit the 74 260 as well.

    That's a good idea for waterproofing. Does anyone have any pictures of these from the backside of the wheelwell in an S30 as to how far these stick out behind the mounting brackets or if they fit in the factory plastic "bucket" shields or are they too long? I received my lights today. They look great, looking forward to installing them.

    Alternator upgrade for 260z

    Actually now that I look back at the post you made, the atlanticzcar link, I believe that's the page I used for my install as well. Looks very familiar.

    Alternator upgrade for 260z

    From my thread on the issue I had with my car I posted this: - Bolted in the alternator - Added the Diode to the "T" connector to allow the car to shut off with the key - Jumped the YELLOW and WHITE wire after removing the Regulator on the inner fender. - Jumped the BLACK /W WHITE LINE wire and the WHITE /W BLACK LINE wires - Hooked up the battery cable and the ground to the alternator. Again, i'm just going by memory and what I posted on the forums. Someone else might have better information but if you run into any issues I can always unsheath my wiring and look at it for you.

    Alternator upgrade for 260z

    Here's a link for some info I used http://www.zcarcreations.com/howto/voltreg.htm I changed my alternator because my car would not shut off with the key. The problem persisted even after swapping the alternator. I didn't drive the car much, bought a couple new parts to install and then suddenly the key started working again and has worked fine for 2 years. I have no idea what changed, I didn't touch anything. I had been all through the entire wiring when it was first an issue and could not find anything obvious. Very strange issue. Anyway, my alternator works great. The only thing is I may have opted for a higher amp alternator than the one I got. I think I have a 60 or 70 amp from a ZX if I remember correctly.

    Alternator upgrade for 260z

    I'm going to give this some more thought and try and remember what I did on my car. It involved a diode and an S130 ZX alternator which bolted right in but I had to remove the external VR and re-work some wiring. This was a few years ago. I will dig up what I can on the subject.

    73 Rust Issues

    In my opinion that thing is going to have to be torn right down to just the chassis and you won't find out just how much rust there REALLY is until you start cutting stuff out and seeing where it ends. A total ground up is the only way to justify putting that much work into that car.

    Just curious, on the most recent list it says "35W 5000K" I just wanted to confirm mine are HID, as I believe that what was invoiced.
