Learned SPL RTAs get in the way of Sport Calipers in the Rear. I will have to remove the RTAs every time i do a brake job in the future.

Sport Brake Rear Converstion Attempt #2. SUCCESSFUL.



Second attempt went much better. New Bolts, New Caliper.

This time they didnt have messed up threads so they went right on.

Centric high carbon blacks + Carbotech XP8 rears are good to go and are slowly bedding in.

(Side note: I have 2 base model sized rear rotors i bought because when the first install was a flop i needed rotors to make it back home. If interested they have ~650 miles on them and barely even worn in. Shoot a PM if intrested.)

The ISR Single Exit exhaust was installed a while ago but i never took pictures because there was a lot to do in 1 day with limited time.





Its the ISR Single Exit + ISR Y-Pipe. I really love the sound, it gurgles and pops a lot and it has a deep rumble and no rasp whatsoever. Plus its loud which is nice.

Thanks to ISR for the opportunity to rep their brand on my car and the sponsorship opportunity

May have finalized a few more sponsors to add to the list, and more stickers to the car.

Fingers crossed it all works out

Default First Track day in the Z!

Went to Autoclub Speedway - Roval this weekend! Broke the Z's virginity of track days. Going to become a sloppy girl for even more of them

Had a blast, set a good time according to the Nissan challenge guys there for what i have on the Z.

2.02.xxx on an open diff and basic suspension mods.. the open diff was killing me on the bankments and corner exit.

I feel i could have gotten a 2 flat or sub 2 if i didnt hit traffic literally every lap, but thats what happens when you go a lower class for the sake of learning the car.

Here are some cool photos from the event, Next up.. Buttonwillow

I missed this post before the track day because i was pressed for time. So ill switch it up a wee bit.

The after install look with a Driven GT FIA Bucket Seat(I.E. a re branded MOMO seat) + Sparco Seat Rail setup w/ slider. Courtesy of Corner 3 Motorsports for helping me choose a good seat that fit me well.

Along with G-Force 6 point harness to keep me strapped in place for all my late braking heavy footed goodness. This was definitely a life saver at ACS.

Im too lazy to take pictures but yes, there are eyebolts for the harnesses with metal plates under the car for the proper install. I also have the Ghetto-Auto harness bar for a "Safe" mount for them. Rollbar eventually but i wanted my harness setup.

Great job at the track and yes you should be very happy your time. The Nissan Challenge gang are welcoming group of individuals. John is awesome! I participated in the fun back in August and had great time. I even got a third place plaque. I spent most of my sessions getting instruction from Steve Daughtry...it was definitely worth it! Look forward to your updates. I was at Chuckwalla Valley this past weekend and it was awesome!

The Z earned itself an award out of 8 people last weekend. Not to shabby if i do say so myself, especially for no experience in the car.

Bob thank you for the compliment! So we'll be seeing you at Chuckwalla then?

I would love to run there but I will be at Auto Club for the NASCAR race. My bro is part of the safety crew and we camp out in the infield and partake in all the festivities. I have to get my car to Specialty Z and hopefully he can fix my boost issue by my next NASA event. I am planning on run at Las Vegas in April.
