Take 2 let's try again :)

Recommended Posts

OK so after losing the stealth bomber a few weeks ago I have been a bit down hearted on the whole car thing and haven't really being getting out in my new one much

 

So as it stands I have a stock 370z 2010 gt

Buuuuut I couldn't leave it that way so I've bought a few bits that I felt made the biggest difference in the drive of my last one obviously apart from the supercharger

 

so on the way is

 

Ebaich front and rear roll bars

Kw v3 coilovers they arrived the other day

 

20160515_101905_zpstlkggdhw.jpg

Kinetix camber kit f/r arms and traction arms

 

Also going on is another invidia Gemini

 

The car is going into rsv soon for some cosmetic surgery :)

I need to personalise it to get my mojo back for the car

 

Hoping to get this lot done before my trip to Europe in a few weeks

 

Also on my mods list is some mpss it has practicality new potenzas on it 7mm all round seems a shame to swap them out but we'll see

 

So here it is take 2 build thred

Operation z mojo :)

Nick,

You just know it has to be done!

 

Good luck with the mods, at least you can learn from previous.

 

I'm certain you will fall back in love once it becomes truely yours, and particularly after finding the limits again on your Europe drive.

Are the KW coilovers any good? Looking into getting some but what are your thoughts if you've had them before?

After a long hard day yesterday we got all the suspension stuff on

And needles to say the geo is all over the place lol

 

The car is going to Severn Valley motorsport to be set up in the week

I shall report back with my thoughts on the suspension:)

I also have a invidia back on so some nice sounds coming out of her again :)

 

 

Side note

I miss my supercharger:(

Glad you are back in the saddle mate. I am sure you will have a lot of fun making this one your own! Following this with interest. Also looking forward to pictures from your Euro jaunt. :)

I also have KW V3s on my Z. They are the single best modification I have ever made to any of the cars I have owned to date.

 

Significantly improved handling - the car feels much more tied down when cornering and gives you loads of confidence to really ean on the tyres in the corners.

 

Yet the ride quality is like stock but with better damping.

 

They are absolutely sublime. So much so that I have just ordered another set for my MR2 Turbo,

 

They may not be as cheap as some coilover kits, but they are worth every penny.

Little report back on the suspension set up

Spec.

Kwv3 coilovers

Ebaich anti roll bars

Kinetix front rear camber arms and rear traction arms

 

The car handles on rails now ride better than stock imo

I am also running different camber etc than stock so that helps

 

Next possibly a bbk

And possibly fit the quaife diff

All set up ready for boost

If that's the route I go down although still enjoying standard power for now

And quite fancy a track toy so may leave the engine alone a get something to play with At the track

Nothing to expensive of course

 

 

European trip kicks of Sunday comming

There is 2 supercharged zeds on the trip so I'll probably be having boost envy all week :)

So not much has happened mods wise lately

I'm going to install the diff as I found the car very frustrating in Europe out of tight hairpins etc

 

The tc would either completely cut the power

Or if turned of one wheel would spin like hell

I just couldn't get out of the corners leaving a golf gti crawling all over the z :(

 

I know this is a once a year problem as I don't drive those sort of roads all to often but man it's frustrating

 

Also realy missed the supercharger out there felt so down on power

Not such an issue here with our backed up roads but I think ill notice it on track

 

Quietly contemplating a change again :)

 

This missus loves the z and wants me to supercharge it again but I just feel for the price of mine plus a charger I could have something more capable
