Only bad thing from the weekend was my driver seat back broke as i was leaving the car show so after getting home I ripped out the seats found some more rust spots, laid down some rust kill paint and ten some flat black, and swapped the passenger seat to the driver side for now..

I also snagged this beautiful fuel rail from a friend who is selling off all his Z stuff.

He also paid it forward big time to a young Zcar guy who loves his Z but it has some major rust issues so he gave him rust free 280z rollers.

Went to the track aging two weekends ago, and was happy with the results. A slight bump it boost to 10 psi

I have a few more goodies on order and hope to make it to the track once more before it closes for winter.

 

my biggest hold back is still the auto trans.

Almost 2 years wow...alot has changed on this car. And in some ways not much.. Could be because it was been down much of the time sence the last post. Was down for 5 months in 2016 due to a crazy work schedule so it took forever to change fuel rail and up grade the system. Then in Oct of 2016 I killed the turbo at the drag strip and am just now getting the car back running. With alot of big changes. Pics to come soon along with I hope some good old HZ advice.

 

Glad to be back HW

You can launch the auto hard with a 2-1 drop on the last amber.  I would also like to add that somewhere out there is a list of mods that will help the jatco hold together.  The fluid you use will also make a huge difference.  I used john deere brand hy gard fluid.  The fluid will lower your stall speed but it won't matter if you do the gear drop at the line.

Well I just picked up a extra 3n71b , and found a local guy who had his converter built for it and I am going that route. Ya it’s hard to find that list I have been looking!
