Want to keep myself and any journal followers updated

First this is how near to the rails I was at track last time

https://www.instagram.com/p/BQa1kZ7jhdy/

And a flyby at the straight line, this is after some turns of the photo I posted before look where the C63 driver went

https://www.instagram.com/p/BQ0lPatDr6p/


So, after the incident of lift off oversteer, I decided I want to go to the original understeer nature of the car, and from there I would dial it back to be balanced.

I went to the shop and did the following:

- Set height from ground to fender Front: 680mm Rear: 675mm (was F 680mm/R 690mm).
- Change rear swaybar setting to full soft instead of medium.
- Not yet, but will get a less aggressive alignment.

Also Installed:

- Winmax W6.5 front and rear brake pads.
- Z1 rear sprinkle slotted 2-piece rotors.

So next track day will be on March 4th, I will try the car there and will update my suspension post

I used a 30x2 tape that I got from my friend (he used no more than 6 inches) and it was enough to wrap the intakes from throttle to the line of radiators. Another friend is installing intakes on his G37 currently and have a full 30x2 tape and I can check how much he will use.
Thanks a lot for your help bro! I will buy the 30x2 then

BTW I read some where here on the web page, that some people just install the Hotchkis front swaybar and leave OEM the rear swaybar with good results. Is what im going to do Im going to buy just the Hotchkis front swaybar and change the SPC rear camber arms for the SPL

You are welcome, and sorry that I didn't replay sooner, if you have coilovers or different springs, I think it will work with front sway only, with stock suspension, I think the car behaved best with whiteline full soft front and full hard at back but I didn't tried other setups.

Finally got time to have extended sample of my exhaust setup sound: Fast Intentions TDX 12" resonators and Motordyne Long Tube Headers with Helmholtz Resonators, even 86 cup driver approves the noise he was the fastest that track day.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dh4G9LTGmsE


No new updates to my car progress or observations as this day was the most crowded trackday to ever be at, with over 30 cars at one session. The second session which the clip is from, was less crowded but still the surface wasn't perfect as it was dump at some places and debris everywhere. The only thing I need to say, the car felt less likely to oversteer, but still not perfect.

As I remember the grey 86 that followed me had a lot of upgrades done to it, boltons, coilovers, differential, final drive, semi slicks, etc. And I wasn't pushing to the limit as I had a car in front of me that was fairly fast, so opted to follow, same apply to him.




Next will be corner balancing

The track is relatively new and they just renovated it last year.

Also, the worldwide journalists are taking extra attention to the slightest mistake to hold on us so they are maintaining and taking care of the track as much as possible which is good for us.

Hi bro! one question... I see on the first page of your build that you buy the front bumper Mine's air ducts, why did you not install them?

I was thinking on buy the air ducts to give more air to the Stillen Gen 3 intakes

Yeah I still have them, I posted a sale thread which didn't go well as it is an overpriced part and the one I have is authentic


It is designed to get air directly to oem boxes, I was planning for short rams and they would be very useful, but now I am not sure if they will give the CAI more air.

This is how they look, and they are very very light (small part and dry carbon)

( Click to show/hide )


During summer I will check it again and will try to give the Z a body refresh, either a full bodykit or addon parts. So, I will see where the air will go and how I can make them provide more air to the intakes.

those ducts are expensive bro! but they look great and are the real deal. Im going to buy some replica air ducts in carbon fiber to make that mod I think that the Stillen Gen 3 intakes needs to receive more cool air
