  1. How much did you cut off the front springs? That looks a lot lower than the Eibach equipped Zs I’ve seen which tend to look nose high.
  2. Thank you for the reply. 17x8 4.75” equates to a +6mm offset. Given that guys are running 255/40/17 wheels under stock fenders, 6mm offsets is about what I expected. Man these wheels look good. I’ve read that they are discontinued?
  3. 17x8 255/40/17 Offset looks perfect http://onlymodifiedcars.blogspot.com/2016/02/os-giken-power-americas-most-exotic-240z.html
  4. Keep the updates coming! Looks like a hell of a project. One-question: The JCI mounts... do these use GM rubber mounts or does the JCI kit come with actual rubber mounts? From your pic I just see metal adapter mounts. Also, is the JCI trans mount rubber too? Any kit I buy must be rubber (been there done that and won’t do poly mounts on a street car ever again).
  5. Hi guys... I have a pretty good idea on what to do when it comes to adding power to the 240z. What I don’t have the best idea about is what structural integrity mods I should be considering to handle a 500rwhp 6.2L LS3. Given that these cars weren’t designed with that level of power and given that the platform is nearing 50yrs old, i’d like to make consideration for this early on. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
  6. Hi guys, I’m hoping you can help me answer a few questions about the 17” Panasport C8 wheels for the Datsun 240z 1.) Who has these wheels and what width/offset are you using? 2.) What tire size are you using? 3.) What does a set of these wheels retail for these days and where can you get them? These wheels are beautiful and really set a Datsun Z off from the pack. Thank you for any responses!

  8. I have this love affair with the Datsun Z. I always noticed them growing up but most of my life have been an avid muscle car enthusiast (classic Camaro/Chevelle/Mustang) But I have always gravitated back to the Z. What is it about these cars that is so special for you? For me: - body shape is beautiful. The cars look amazing with a slight drop and wider wheels. - lightweight... not many cars out there that you can get that are sub 2500lbs - v8 swaps O plenty, lots of kits out there. An LS in one of these makes them gobs of fun. How did you fall in love with the Z and what made you purchase yours?
  9. 15x9 with no rolled fenders? What is the rim offset and do you have any pics? This I have to see...
  10. Thanks and believe it or not, I'm one of the few human beings remaining who doesn't use FB. I love the bumper stickers I see while driving on the 101 freeway in Silicon Valley "Delete Facebook" lol.
  11. Hi guys, where do you recommend I order a set of Watanabe wheels? 16x8 0 front 16x8.5 -6 rear Does anyone have a recommendation? I’d like to use Watanabe directly or utilize a reliable and responsive 3rd party. thanks
  12. Thanks for the reply. My goodness, can those items really account for a whopping 700lbs?
  13. What are the weight differences between the three and what is driving that difference?
