  • About my Cars
    I own a 1973 240 Z that I am restoring to mostly stock condition. I purchased a parts car for 1300 dollars but the chassis has been disposed of. It was rough. Most of the parts from my parts car are original and in decent shape. I mostly just bought the parts car for the black interior peices because i am changing the exterior color of my project car from white to 905 red, but it came with an all original engine that ran. I plan to modify this engine to race spec.

  1. The lip appears much deeper. I'm assuming that these rims are not as wide as Gordon's car
  2. This is Travel'n man's car. Also has RS watanabe's
  3. Does anyone know or have any info as to the set up that Gordon McSwain is running on his car. Rim and tire size?, width?, Offset? His car was featured at S.E.M.A week where it raced against some other modified 350 z's I think. It has been a trial and error for alot of people to get just the right wheel and tire fitment and look on the S30. In my opinion, the Watanabe RS in gun metal is the best looking rim on these cars, but the offset and back spacing changes the overall look. I was reading on the "post your wheel and tire" forum and one member got some from Japan and said they were 15x8 with 0 offset, but they looked much different from Gordon's car. In my opinion, Gordon's car is perfect, perfect stance and perfect look. The look I want for my Z one day.
  4. Ok cool. Yea I thought about the possibility of not being able to rotate the tires if I had staggered them. Makes sense to just have all the same size rims and tires
  5. My car currently has a set of the 5 slot mags at 14x5.5 I believe with 195 70 14 Michelin defenders. I intend to occasionally run the car at the track and am putting together a list of things I want for the car and I think I will purchase a set of these rims. I like how they look and they allow for a little more tire. I am however thinking about staggering the sizes. I want to go with a 15x6 with a 205 60 up front and a 15x7 with a 225 60 on the rear. I checked these with a tire calculator and the 14's with 195 70 are 629 cm tall. The 15 with 205 60 is 627 cm tall and with the 225 60 is 651 cm tall. Any thoughts?
  6. Hello all. I was wondering if anyone had any info on the wheel and tire size used on John Morton's BRE 240z. I just think the amount of side wall and the overall stance just looks so good on that car. I found that VTO retro 4 rims are close look alike to the magnesium racing wheels on the BRE car. Thanks!
  7. Both ends of the spray bar. Doesn't seem to be clogged either
  8. On a side note, just picked up a 79 L28 with matching 5 speed trans lol. Just to have it. ? It's an F54 block and a P79 Head. I've heard different things about the P79 head and when I get around to rebuilding/modifying it, I may just buy a different one.
  9. Does the oil flow around the cam tower mounting bolt? It would have to right? And what about the mouse trap springs could they get weak with age and cause a problem?
