    Neil's track day 350Z build (in orange)

    No idea if they are low mounts. To be fair I don't see how they could be lower though without cutting into the car.

    Thanks mate. Glad to hear you're enjoying it. Maybe I should clarify on the seat. I configured it so the rear is one notch (there are 3) higher than the front. So I sit at an angle which I prefer. That was what I meant by "higher". Probably not the best description. Anyway overall you sit lower in the car as the seat is thinner than stock and mounts lower. You can also move the seat further back more to give more leg room, again as it's thinner. I'm 6 foot and can't fully depress the pedals with the seat all the way back. If you are at TRAX on Sunday you can have a go!

    This week it's a complete service overhaul. I change the engine oil, gearbox oil, differential fluid, coolant, spark plugs and clean the MAF & throttle body. Full video on YouTube as usual.

    How to fit a racing bucket seat

    My video shows you how I bought and fitted a OMP ARS-R racing seat into my 350Z. I got mine from GSM Performance in Nottingham. Nice, friendly place and you can actually go there and try out the seats before you buy one. I manged to get a discount code which should get you 5% off: RAR-GSM

    On this week's video I buy and fit a OMP ARS-R racing seat to the Z. I visited GSM Performance in Nottingham and had a good time trying out all their seats. I've managed to get a discount code for GSM which should get you 5% off most stuff: RAR-GSM. It's apparently a bit tricky to fnd a racing seat that fits a 350Z. This OMP one just fits but does still rub slightly against the door car.

    Road and Race 350Z

    When I got the car it had 4 different types of tyres on it. On the track it was a bit of a handful and you never really knew what the car was going to do! In my latest video Gary and I test the car before and after fitting decent tyres. We used Kumho's PS91 Ultra Performance road tyres - the best road tyres they sell. How well do they hold up on the track?

    Road and Race 350Z

    In this video I show you how I swapped out the potentially problematic clutch slave cylinder and also fixed a whole bunch of small, but annoying issues.

    Fast road/Track 350z HR build

    @350Butcher Massive thanks for this. Been looking for ages to find those parts. Not wanting to bother you too much but could I ask a few more questions please? 1. How did you secure the metal intake ducts to the front of the car? 2. What thickness metal sheet did you get? 3. What type of metal was it? I assume aluminium? 4. How did you secure the metal outlet duct to the metal sheet? Thanks, Neil.

    Fast road/Track 350z HR build

    @350Butcher Great build so far! Do you mind if I ask about the brake ducts please/ They look amazing. A really ingenious solution. May I ask where you bought all the parts from please as I'd like to do this to my Z too. Did you have to do much cutting for the front ducts? Big thanks. Neil.
