Internally Regulated Alternator Trivia - Bootstrap Current?

Electrical Yesterday, 01:07 PM
I did the internally regulated alternator upgrade a little while ago, and everything is fine with the exception of one ignorable low priority issue.

Hub Extenders

Wheels, Tires and Brakes 23 Jul 2015
These were discussed on the Ztrix website, as a way of putting bigger/wider wheels on your Z without buying custom wheels.  I have never heard much good about spacers, but these hub extenders seem different, so I wanted to ask.   FYI, I don't plan on any serious racing, but may do an oc...

Without replacing the gauge faces, how do you clean the faces, especially the numbers on the speedometer and tachometer, and the odometer wheels so you can see them better with whatever light you get out of the dim bulbs? I have no reference to go by, so does anyone have a picture of what the...

Project Crush

Open S30 Z Discussions 16 Jul 2015
I thought I'd make my own thread as I seem to make a new one every week or so for this weeks issues. Long story short if you haven't been following, or can't keep up. I purchased a 240z south of the border (yup I'm in Canada), last spring. Over the last year and a half I've managed to bring it ba...
