  1. As already answered it’ll fit all models of 370z.
  2. They’re a great looking piece of kit I’m sure she wouldn’t mind you hanging them up for display
  3. I bought these direct from the team owner through Facebook. Gutted I couldn’t fit them onto my own car especially having driven miles to collect them in stormy weather with 3 kids in tow! It was only when I discovered the end of the shocks were a different joint that lead to my research direct with Ohlins (who were incredibly helpful). Made full sense since the team ran both 350z and 370z race cars. As per pictures these have never been used or fitted. Good opportunity to get your hands on some excellent kit without paying full price.
  4. I recently bought a set of Ohlins coilovers from Team Kennedy racing team who had 2 spare sets they no longer needed. They’re still in their packaging and boxed (only removed from the box to verify items and take photos) Unfortunately for me despite the packaging displaying the correct package number (NIS MI00) for a 350Z I have now verified direct with Ohlins that the part numbers I have correspond to the package NIS GQ00 for the 370Z. I can provide the email correspondence received from Ohlins to confirm. Unfortunately for me they’re no good for my 350 so I’m looking to sell these on to fund the correct set. From my research these are arguable some of the best coilovers on the market for a dramatic improvement in handling performance without significant compromise to comfort. Ride height can be adjusted from as little as -5mm from stock all the way to -35mm. Reduced from £2100 to £1900, based in East London E15.

  5. Just adding my 2 cents - tried Goodyear F1 Supersports on the rears for the first time at Snetterton this Wednesday and it was very wet. They were very impressive in the wet - in a recent test they performed significantly better than mp4s in the wet in a M2c. Obviously road legal and won’t be as track focused as the semi slicks above.
  6. Usual excellent service from Adrian’s team - answered all my queries instantly on WhatsApp early Saturday morning (look inside the box before you query!) even got a piece of chocolate.
  7. Ignore my latest question within reading the first page I see the thread has already answered many of my queries! This Link is gold!
  8. Thanks a lot for taking the time to respond I will definitely read through that thread, but it sounds like if I was to invest into premium coil overs it would make sense to add adjustable camber and toe arms and have the geometry tuned on installation. Do you know if there is a range of adjustability with the OEM parts?
  9. Apologies in advance for my inexperience with suspension tuning. I’m booked in at the end of the month to have eibach ARBs and Whiteline drop links installed front and back for my weekend roadster that makes occasional open pit appearances. I have plans by the end of the year to order ohlins r&t or meisterR GT1s (esp after reading that great thread from Jerrick), then running 18x8.5J and 245 Square. My question: what are the benefits of aftermarket arms/links/bars? Are they lighter, more durable or more adjustable than stock? I’ve read that the stock parts are already relatively lightweight (25% lighter than 300zx) are these aftermarket parts more commonly purchased therefore as oem replacements due to wear and tear? Most importantly do I need the additional adjustability to optimise the geometry once I install the above coilovers/wheels sizes as I plan to get it all installed and set up professionally by well know suspension specialists (thanks ekona for prior recommendation). Thanks in advance for any contribution.
  10. I’m in East London and have been keen to make it to a meet. Ace Cafe in June sounds good! Look forward to putting some faces to names.
  11. Funnily enough those tyres would be going into the 8.5J Rays you sold me - planning to put these on the front and replace the rears with matching tyres. I’ve chosen a 40 profile for added rigidity. After much deliberation I’m going to give a square set up a try on the track. Both Dan and Martin have given some great advice and Dan’s going to be disappointed with my decision but his input has inspired me to invest into getting the geometry properly done somewhere specialist in combination with ARBs, coilovers and camber arms to dial out any snap oversteer. I did consider running 255/35s square but understand these are max on 8.5Js as opposed to ideal, and with a NA DE with no head work the extra rubber probably doesn’t justify the weight.
  12. I’ve seen an advert online for Yoko AD08Rs, claims to be brand new with stickers and manufacturer dates of 2018. Any risk of fake tyres out there, or any other notable risks? Price is £250 per pair of 245/40r18s collected so not unbelievably cheap but good value nonetheless. Any opinions?
  13. I can verify mine gets stuck in cold weather. Although if you’re desperate to drop the top on a cool day I have managed to blast the heater for 10 mins then after several attempts of opening and closing it sometimes catches and opens... not the finest look but has worked in the past!
  14. Thought I’d bring up this thread as I’m on my way to moving to a 8.5J square set up after buying and refurbing some new rear rays to fit when my current tyres wear out. The Z is a very occasional weekend toy and will be seen more and more frequently on a track. I’ve therefore upgraded my plans to go from Goodyear EF1 AS3s to Yoko AD08Rs - question is whether to go with 245/40r18s all round or whether to push to the limit and fit 255/35r18s all round. I’ve seen on a chart on 8.5Js ideal width is 245 and max is 255 - as prices are similar any opinions on which sizes would provide most grip whilst keeping grip levels progressive rather than snappy? Also would 255s actually fit without issues on the front?
