  1. How does tyre size affect traction control?

    Currently running a square set up on my Rays for competitions. Toyo R888R 245/40/18 all round with no TC issues. Loads of grip but very noisy at motorway speeds.

    Sorry to see Stu I feel your pain and anger. I got Katrina's car wrapped 3 weeks ago and she was so happy with the results. 4 days later in a public car park some arse pushed the rear quarter panel in and scratched the new alloy wheel. Apparently the Police are on it and are reviewing the CCTV footage! Holding my breath...........

  7. Radical - Revamped

    Unless you have been to the Z Shed and seen this car in the flesh you will not fully appreciate the attention to detail of the mods Chris and now Tim have made. Still upset they didn't paint it in my favourite colour "Resale Silver" lol.

  12. The GTM Supercharged Silver Pheonix

    I will be slithering up the hills next year. The Zed is not a championship winning car so I have a bloody good time attending various events. The HSA,All Circuits sprints and the British Hill Climb championship will fill my diary next year along with my show commitments to the Zed forum.
  13. The GTM Supercharged Silver Pheonix

    Thanks Chris. Once the alignment has been done i will pop over to the Zed Shed.
  14. The GTM Supercharged Silver Pheonix

    The Pheonix has been on axle stands since Trax. Took her out for a quick road test prior to Hunter realignment. First impression on start up. Deep throaty noise from transmission tunnel from the new gearbox mount which as I have aready a plated Kazz diff didn't seem unusual. Once I got up through the gears a few times and negotiationed a few tight corners I realised that the diff was not clunking as much, the gearbox was so much smoother to operate along with no vibration under hard acceleration and on over run. Very pleased with the overall result and looking to drive her after realignment. Please do not think these mods are for a daily driver as you will think you have swapped your beloved Z for a Defender!! As mentioned before being a stubborn bugger I took a flyer buying the Cobra Misano seats. They have only been fitted in the US due to the right hand Z floor pan being much higher. So as I'm not the sort of chap to be shot from a cannon at the Circus the challenge was on! The supplied seat base from OMP sat the seat far too high to avoid the bump in the floor allowing the seat rails to pass. This also meant that the seat sat too near the door so it would shut! I ordered another base, mounted the seat nearer the transmission tunnel, ditched the runners whiched lowered it even further and after an AJ/Buster slot modification bolted the seat directly in the position suited for me. The first Misano seats fitted to a uk Z! Nice to see the newly refurbished wheels!
