    Doing laps *incar videos*

    John Morton at 76, a pretty tidy drive.

    Brock at the Blackhawk

    "BRE had upset the facade of European motorsport superiority" Something that certain euro boys find difficult to acknowledge even today.
  3. People who post what they think is interesting make any forum and many people do find such posts interesting and a possible start to a discussion . Which hopefully among adults will lead to The Knowledge. Those whose comments go nowhere contribute nothing.

    1977 Road Atlanta

    Thanks for the vid, you know America was the scene of some great sports car racing where the Z battled and beat on a level playing field everything else, the fairest and so most genuine comparison of all. At the time nothing else in the world came close, I'm a foreigner and need to know more.

    Rally Suspension

    Basically that Z is a tribute car not a replica, there are no claims in the sales blurb that the original car was replicated mechanically. I'm surprised that Alan did not jump on it.
  6. Is that the Camel car you are talking about?
  7. Unusual tyre balance on that Camel car front to rear, effective rear track is way more than the front too. Be fun to drive.

    The Trans-America Challenge 2018

    If you are serious and not afraid to spend money than get your Z car built in Australia, Stewart Wilkins at SW Motorsport, Sydney, is one of several who will give you a race winning car no bull. You need a Targa type build, dirt rally is different, and you won't find this sort of information on the internet. Results speak for themselves , just do your research on who wins and who builds their cars. It always depends of course if you just want to participate or actually compete.

    The Trans-America Challenge 2018

    Sounds like you need to take the Z to someone who can do most of the work, who knows what parts to use and where to source them from. You could work with him/them, knowledge is the thing here, I guess that you want to do this thing in comfort with no hassles. If you were in Australia.............

    RIP Dan Gurney

    He's immortalised, the Gurney flap has seen to that. Must write 'RIP Gurney' on the one on the 280ZX.
  11. No matter what is done to a Datsun 120Y , #32, they still don't look like a race car. On the other hand all the Z cars come up looking pro.
  12. No misunderstanding, the stone chips are typical of a race car that's all.
  13. Note the race car stone chips on the front part of the rear flares.
  14. See the radiator opening on this? Just about finished making a front mould for my Z31 project race car, the opening I decided on is the same shape but a bit bigger......... Trivia post of the week?
  15. Dunno which track but I like the corner flatness, bugger all roll and those w-i-d-e tyres are flat on the deck.
