  1. This has been discussed here previously. The car was in Japan, and was never shipped to the USA.
  2. A piece of advice for you. Straight ball. No spin: In this ether, coming across people you simply don't like is inevitable. Painting such people as 'Trolls' just because you don't like the cut of their jib is (and for heaven's sake don't take this as being - heaven forfend - "inflammatory".... ) unwise. Unwise. Get it?
  3. Give your head a wobble you utter spoon.
  4. No. Point of order: I suggested that the the practice of throwing the term 'Troll' around inappropriately was lazy. That's an opinion. So you throw the term 'Troll' back at me in response, as though it is now set in stone that I am a 'Troll'? Here's an example of such laziness on the forum. Yesterday. You think this is an appropriate response?
  5. ^So this is 'Trolling', apparently. *sigh*
  6. You don't seem to have addressed the possibility that the cannon fodder might be just as much of a 'problem', or at least the yang to another's ying. So you answer what I thought (even hoped...) was a pragmatic and even-handed post with negativity, and posit that I am - myself - 'trolling'? Way to go, champ. The future looks bright, doesn't it? FFS.
  7. Calling someone out as a "troll" on an internet forum is a lazy, throwaway line and is often totally unjustified. Better to save it for people who are really trolling. Anybody here remember our old friend 'Burt'? Tony simply doesn't suffer fools gladly. Most internet communities are all the better for having someone like that around, and he usually knows what he's talking about, has been there and has bought the t-shirt to boot. Many of the people who have a 'negative experience' when interacting with him are not exactly paragons of virtue themselves. The occasional sighting of that dying art called passionate debate is - in my opinion - a good thing on an internet forum. Along with the noise and heat comes a little light, and - with open minds - we can all learn something new.
  8. Its an S30-prefixed model. Its not a factory designation, but can you *imagine* what it means? If not, you may well be confused by people referring to their 'L29', 'L30' and 'L31' engines.
  9. No, in fact my scans are from two original sources: The 'Competition Tune-Up Manual' for the A10-series, and the 'Competition Tune-Up Manual' for the N10-series. The Sumitomo MK63 type brake calipers were used as Sports/Race Option on many Nissan models, so the information is duplicated in many source documents including - as you pointed to - the BS110 '240RS'.
  10. Keiichi Tsuchiya drives the Spirit Garage S30 race car around the Sugo Circuit for a Best Motoring special, and comes away impressed:
  11. Above: Charles Barter, competing in the Historic Sports Car Club's '70'S RoadSports' class with his 240Z, where modifications are fairly minimal (stock carburettors, no LSD, stock brake calipers). He's a good driver. Below: Julian Barter (Charles' son) chases his father's 240Z in his Lotus Elan S4.
  12. Got a link? Wind me up and point me in the right direction. Will you be participating? I want to see you making the same silly claims you're making here (you know, all that "putting it to some P cars, as it should be" and 'proving the potential of the Z' [by putting an LS V8 in it...] type stuff)? I do hope so. For the rekud, I'm not in any way a 'Porsche snob'. Unless you mean my natural respect for a manufacturer which has competition in its very lifeblood, and which won (for example) the International Cup For GT Cars in 1968, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75 & 1976 (mainly with variants of the 911 platform) and (for example) the International Championship For Makes in 1969, 70, 71, 76, 77, 78 & 1979. You may have noticed their success in long distance sportscar racing as well as rallying and engine supply to a notable F1 team which was originally founded by a New Zealander (Mac-something...). I was present at Le Mans in 1970 when Porsche took an outright win there for the first time, and - I freely admit - it has affected me. When I see a Porsche sports car it reminds me of that. Maybe your vision is different? My hunch is that you are reacting to an image created by certain sectors of ownership, but we could say that about almost any car brand couldn't we? Do you know how much work it takes to become a (an...) ignorant poseur whose ego depends on putting others down? It's a full time job, I can tell you. It has taken me years of practice to get this good at it, and staying on top of it requires vigilance and dedication. It also requires a daily diet of dimwits who are willing to sacrifice themselves on the altar of my art, much like the supply of dead mice to feed a pet reptile. Thank you for your help with that. 🙂
  13. Probably should include the seat mount crossmembers in the list of blacked-out items over body colour. Here's an example of factory black-out on the inside of a quarter panel vent:
  14. Which is all well and good, but I would not advise anyone to use photos of a pre-production test chassis as reference for how the cars came off the production line en masse... OP: The advice of *everything painted body colour* is good, but somewhere along the assembly line a guy was assigned to put his head into the front end of the car and - equipped with a pot of satin black paint and a suitable brush - his job was to 'black out' two thirds of the front half of the radiator support panel so that it was a little less visible through the front grille. He and his friends also walked around the car blacking out body colour anywhere it was deemed unwanted, like around the insides of the door apertures and where it could be seen through trim gaps and behind grilles and vents. Being hand-applied, there was inevitably some variation at play on a case-by-case basis with this 'blacking out'.
  15. ....'his' pictures? There's irony for you.
