    Anyone have a CAD drawing of an S30?

    Any luck? Dave

    Short Video of my Z

    Nice one. Throw away the mufflers and leave it open. Sounds MEAN. Dave

    My 1st time at the track

    Rich, Aero work will come after suspension. Low king springs and worn gabriel shocks not cutting it. Hehe. Dave

    My 1st time at the track

    zhead, Not too sure on the top speed, maybe 130-140mph? Should be a lot higher with something resembling corner-speed and more than 10psi. Dave

    My 1st time at the track

    Rich, Yeah was great fun! Oh and remember the S13/Z31 rear brakes you sold me ages back? They went on 5 minutes before I left for the track (had to fab caliper brackets that morning). Worked a treat. I was worried about brake bias but all was well. Dave

    My 1st time at the track

    Thanks guys. Can't wait to get more than a measly 10psi through it. Off to the drags next Sunday so we'll see what she can do. Dave
  7. Thought you guys might be interested in having a laugh (at me): http://www.jrcarparts.com/vidz/Dave240ZCalder.wmv Pick the n00b. Dave

    OEM/aftermarket windsheild weights

    Is this lexan `glass' you're talking about by any chance? Dave

    horsepower?

    Seeing as you posted this in the Racing forum, do you have any specific class in mind? Might be good to check with the rules as to what you're allowed to do. Unless you're doing club sprint stuff like I am planning on, in which case, do whatever you want, immediately AFTER doing a search. Dave

    Springs Rates for Racing... Again

    Errr.. I think making the front springs softer will only be an issue over bumps, if you're wanting to adjust roll stiffness (because you think you are overloading the front outside during cornering), just loosen the front bar off a notch or two. When you say maxed out strut settings, what does that mean? You are running a locked rear end (as am I), so you will need some toe-out to get better turn in, and a more rear-roll biased car (less front bar, more rear bar) to combat the understeer feel. That combined with as much castor as you can poke a stick at, and appropriate camber should be ok: as in whatever the track/pyrometer tells you. More details as to your settings at the moment would help with the advice. Dave

    Kumho V70A Tyres?

    Rocker panels? I'm not sure what you mean? Sounds like a good idea to me though. Dave

    Kumho V70A Tyres?

    Sounds good. Looks like you've got a fair bit of camber on the front there, mind if I go kinda of off topic and ask what castor/radius rods and tie rod ends you are running? Many thanks, Dave

    Kumho V70A Tyres?

    Tis a worry to be sure, noone likes to spend money to have the tyres disintegrate. What size rubber are you running in the V700s? And what compound? Dave

    Kumho V70A Tyres?

    Preith, Yep that sounds like it. Good to hear they are back, I heard that if you could get them not to die they were unbelievable. I wonder how long until they filter down under. Are they readily available in the states? The V710s I mean. Dave

    Kumho V70A Tyres?

    preith, I've heard tell the V710s have been recalled due to some cars having serious problems. The replacement is apparently the V800 which looks something like this: http://www.kumhotyre.com/products/details.asp?curpage=110&brand_pkid=&tyre_type_pkid=&width=&aspect=&speed=&Rim=&sub_type=&stdrim=&tube_type=&sidewall=&load_index=&load_index2=&pattern_name=&SearchType= This is just rumour though.. make of it what you will.
