  1. Tread pattern makes a big difference for driving in the wet too, Michelin PS4s are great, if you don't want PS4s, then Goodyear Eagle F1 asy 5 are a good alternative, Costco usually has sales on the Michelins and Goodyears, might be worth getting a membership card. The most important thing is the driver though, premium tyres won't save you if you floor it when aquaplaning or apply sudden rapid steering input around a sharp bend, "adapt your driving to the appropriate type and condition of the road you are on".
  2. The racing thing is boy racers, there will always be folks like that - there's a place to race and that's at the track, other people use the roads too. Happy to rev the zed to entertain though, gives them something to work towards (and it sounds great with the custom exhaust).
  3. Brake checking a truck? That's a Darwin award candidate.
  4. Hi all, after some cheap alloys which will clear the brembos, ideally bare wheel or with winters mounted. Not looking to spend a fortune as they'll only be used in winter for safety and not style (few scratches and chips are fine) so ideally below £200 collected in North West region.

    LPG conversion

    Probably work out better and cheaper to do an electric conversion than LPG at this point.

    350z discs and pads

    Might also be worth checking out MTEC OEM replacements as well, used them before on my other cars and they are fine for daily driving, never tracked them before though. The owner of MTEC also has or had a 350z too. I'd stick with official Brembo pads though.
  7. Thanks Alex, do you sell the hoses complete with clamp, radiator cap and 10L of coolant? How much would I be looking at incl. postage? I assume I'd only have to do a "partial" flush of the coolant system (rad only) and not bleed the whole block.
  8. Hi all, coolant has come out near my rad cap and upper coolant hose, sprayed itself towards the passenger side of my engine bay and down under. Nothing on drivers side, suspect upper coolant hose leak? Oil shows no signs of coolant (head gasket), and engine temps have been fine so far, coolant overflow tank is at max. Just a bit concerned as it looks like it's been there a while, little speck of coolant also visible there too, so might be spraying sporadically. The car is a HR (2007+), do they have different hoses to the DEs? Many thanks!

    Rusty rear arch

    Did you ever manage to find quotes for the arch repair? I assume they would have to weld a new piece of steel in and blend the whole side of the car.
  10. Hi, if you need an upgrade, Tarmacsportz do an uprated brace for £150: https://www.tarmacsportz.co.uk/tarmac-sportz-nissan-350z-03-09-replacement-w-brace.html OEM brace are prone to rusting and snapping without proper rust treatment. Good luck with the search.
  11. Bump, still need a passenger side jet if anyone has one.
  12. Page 5-13 refers to max engine speed, DEs are 6600, RevUp is 7000 and HR is 7500, I think some of the technical info is slightly different but most of the manual is the same.
  13. What year 350Z is it for? The manuals are slightly different depending on facelift.
  14. It's alright, you just have to let them know that they're forged, and they need to cure at a lower temperature, it'll take longer to cure that's all.
