    Gr 4 Z

    This is a 1973 240Z that was flood in 2003 (with 4 meters of water under the top) The car was to a friend Eric (Tomzawyer on our Datsun Forum) www.datsun-france.com and i suggest him to built a race car for us, as the car was in poor condtition after flooding; i done the works with my student, we start the project in october 2006; know the car was sand, and bodyshell parts were rebuilt, we build a rotissery for help the work engine was take down, gear box too a 6 points roll cage was bought and in september we put it on car the engine will have (for starting), some little modifications, a good head, balancing, cams, but we keep the SU... we have the better Original European FSC71A gear box with 3,90 final drive For the wheel question... my technical friend tell me that we just must respect the maxi/ mini ; wheel + tire diameter for the period as specified in annexe K

    Hello all! I build a Gr4 too (this is a student project car, i build this car with my student as i am mechanics teacher) and i ask me the same questions... i have the 3023 with the mark too... and after reading the differents periode of annexe J i notice that in the 1969 periode (the first Z run in this periode) there are no Gr2 or Gr4 en regarding Brian Long (Datsun z fairlady to 280z book), in page 77 the book explain that in 1970 the car ran in Gr3 and have twin choke solex carburator...and fiberglass bonnet, door and rear hatch, perspex windows like the GR3 permit In 1972 season, perspex and lighweigt panel were banned in GR3 because of new 1971 appendix J rules (and GR2 and GR4 appears....) read P98 that's why "i think" ;that 3023 documents were modified and to clear the situation in this document ,after 1971 "GROUP 4 only" mark appears on parts that are allowed originaly in GR3 Nowadays FIA technics or not very clear with the History; so things are not clear for us...it's very difficult to know all in all brand... I have a good friend who is technics for the FIA; and was now specilst in historic racing car; and he tell me that for exemple: for the breaks: we could'nt find the FIA homologuated calipers for the Z but as we respected the piston dimension to have the same area, and if calipers are pretty the same look (like AP racing 4 piston) "he tell me to machine cut the Ap racing mark"...; technics would'nt be too hard or visiuous to refused the car... And he tell me to respect the technics conception periode to be realistic with the rules

I start a restauration project to built an Historic 240Z racing car, as i am mechanic teacher, i will do the project with my students and was help by a friend which is bodywork teacher i will show him those video, i think it will be very interested by them and me probably show them to our student!!! A question: I notice you speak about powdercoating, anyone could explain me what is it exactly because we didn't know that in France, and how it is spray, what is the advantage? Thank you Ben

  11. i don't know why specialy this area rust but my idea is that the only way is to replace the bad metal by a need panel! i don't know if the sill return repair panel provide enough metal to cut under the door! When i will scrape down the sill return i ll' have new surprise under the blackson!
  12. interesting!!!! What is the approximative price for this complete kit throttle, wire, and ecu unit? And how can you tune the ecu (with a special controler or computer)? what value can you adjust on the ecu programme? exemple: inject timing point and fuel injected (open time of the injector)?
  13. same problem on the opposite side
