  1. Have a S30 Series 1 Chassis, decent engine makes 150bhp with an L28 mated to a Type-II 5-speed, great suspension and brakes. PM if interested.
  2. I love the RS8 Watanabes, especially when they're custom barreled to some double digit width. Also thank you! I've seen a few S30s with the Formula TRs on instagram, I think the wheels look great. It would definitely be interesting to see them on more JDM cars.
  3. Yes my wheels fit over the hubs fine though I should've purchased my wheels with more offset so they wouldn't poke as much. Running Fifteen52 Formula TR 225/50R16x8 +0 with non-rolled fenders, should have ordered at least +10.
  4. I'm currently running AZC front brakes and 5 lug hubs and T3 rear brakes with the Ebrake. I think both are equally great quality though I've had issues getting the e-brake function to work on the T3 rear kit.
  5. While there's a topic open about Fiber Glass Mafia, I'm curious if anyone's used their "Mafia" Fender Flare Set. Link: http://www.fiberglassmafia.com/store/p34/S30MafiaFlares Look a little different than your standard ZG flares, a hybrid between Pandem/Rocket Bunny and ZGs in my opinion. I like how the rear fender flares don't mount to the door unlike the Pandem/RB kit.
  6. Have a 1971 Series 1 with complete brakes, suspension and wiring. Going to do chassis chassis reinforcements (Subframe connectors) soon, PM me if you're interested.
  7. Hi, I talked to Dave a couple years ago about doing this exactly and he said that his coilover system would not fit with T3 camber plates. -Liam
  8. Yes I found that I get around a 1/10 of the adjustment out of the camber plates vs adjustable control arms. I think I wait to use the KMAC plates if I ever do a coilover conversion.
  9. Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone knows how to make KMAC camber plates work with OE struts (non-coilover conversion) for 240z's. I've searched around the forums for a while and tried to find some guides or information that could help me make these plates work with my current setup. I briefly talked to John C. a while ago about making them work as he had previous experience with them on a customer's car but other than that I haven't been able to find much. I had a shoulder bushing made to make the KMAC plates work with my struts but after experimenting with them I found that they raised my Z by about an 1-1/2". I'm curious if anyone has been able to fit them without the major raise in ride height. My current strut setup is Tokico Blue lowering springs, Koni 8610-1437 single adjustable shocks and OEM strut insulators. Any information or help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Liam Edit: changed topic heading
  10. I would give KYB a go if you're looking for something a little softer than Illuminas. Koni Reds and Tokico HP strutsa are also a pretty good street shock from what I've heard. I'm sure there's some members here that have written about their experiences about using them. The strut sectioning FAQ is a pretty good place to find some options if you haven't looked there already. I actually have some spare Illuminas for a 240z if you want to try them. I moved to Koni 1437 shocks all around and just have my Illuminas laying around. -Liam Edit: Added Tokico HP
  11. I too am curious about what experienced people have to say on this. I'm starting on my chassis and I'm debating on getting a new roller to build and properly cage or sticking with my current chassis. From my research and experience, if you want to fully rebuild your car (especially with 800+hp in mind), building from a stripped roller is cheaper and easier than using an existing built car.
  12. Camber adjustment at the top of the strut will give you only about 1/10th the amount of angle you could get by using an adjustable lower control arm.
  13. I have a complete kit of the Silvermine rear disc brake conversion kit somewhere in my garage, if you're interested I can find it and send you some pictures. The kit: http://www.silverminemotors.com/datsun/datsun-240z/brake-upgrades/240z-260z-280z-rear-brake-upgrade-disk-conversion-kit -Liam
  14. Hi all, I'm looking to buy a 240z roller or chassis with minimal rust and a straight chassis. Paint not required. Located in California but I am willing to travel across states for a good chassis. Thanks, Liam
  15. Hi all, Windshield is pretty old so I'm looking to get some new glass. If anyone has any 240z windshields in good condition or new reproduction let me know. I can pick up locally for those located in the Bay Area, CA. Thanks, Liam
