My wife likes to Auto-X the Z now and then and recently took the Z to H2R in San Marcos to try her hand at a road course.















http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMyy5Cbz80o&feature=player_detailpage


She was doing 90mph in turn 1 when she lost the back end of the car.
And these are the casualties of her little offroad adventure.











I only had the front lip on the car about a month and the side skirts 2 weeks before this happened, but as long as the only thing lost was some carbon fiber and fiberglass and she was ok then no biggie. I buffed out the headlight and paint scratches, now you can't tell it ever happened. She'll be going back soon to redeem herself.

I'll update this thread as things progress with the car or just to add random pics and videos.

Thanks for looking!

Love this car, keep up the solid work. This car will be sick with wheels.

I had no idea about the incident at HHR, I'm sure she will be ready to redeem herself though. Glad everyone is alright. Really sucks about the lip and blades too I didn't even get to see them on the car

Thanks. This is the first thing I did to my car. It still had the paper plates on it when I had the headlights off of the car and in the oven. The chrome just seems out of place to me.

Well I replaced the busted EVO-R lip with a Shine Auto CF one. I contacted EVO-R and they would not sell me just the passenger side blade so I fiber-glassed the broken one back together, now you cant tell it was ever broken into 4 pieces.

I also purchased a set of coilovers that will be going on this weekend.

Here are a couple of updated pics with the side blades and new lip installed.











BEFORE





AFTER














I will update again when the coilovers go on.

A few updated pics with the new coilovers installed. Its a little too low for me right now (I think it looks great but I scrape on everything) so I'm planning on raising it back up a 1/2".

Very nice, your car sounds really mean out on the track! How did the base brakes act when you tracked the Z? Did you do any brake mods? The base brakes are one of the things that take away some of my confidence when they are pushed hard.

Thanks.
I replaced the stock pads with EBC Yellow Stuff pads and replaced the fluid with Motul RBF 600. I ran 8, 30min sessions over two days on a 3.1 mile track with 16 turns with no brake fade or issues. Now obviously they arent as good as a BBK but they performed well for what they are. I will be replacing them with a BBK in the future.

Car looks great. Headlights were my first mod as well. Couldn't stand the chrome look.

What's next?
