Well I went to get tires at Tire Discounter (not Z) but for 2005 mini convertible I picked up for DD this winter. It was funny, mention to the salesperson that my fun car was a 370Z, and that got him talking and mentioning his buddy. Well his buddy worked there and put the tires on the mini, and he has a Z too, so we talked a bit about mods... It was just pure fun....

And did the doors a bit more, the carbon fiber insert that I bought I got a surprised that is was going to cover and be removable, so I decided to use double sided tape, seems to be working, time will tell

Just some low level mods, to see how it looks....

Last Wednesday, did a SCCA Track Night at Road Atlanta. Has a great time and it looks like I have the car working. Last year I had issues every time I took it out. No issues, car ran great for the three 20 minute session. Best Lap was a 1:57:13, and I am happy with that. Showed improvement through all the sessions....

Went and Autocross on Saturday, but did not take the Z, I have a 05 Mini Cooper Convertible that I used, automatic about as different as you can get. But I did to learn something, about caring speed and not braking. It was a fun car to learn in and it I wasn't pressing myself. So hopefully when I take the Z I will have learned something, thou the Z and Mini Cooper are two different animals...

On Wednesday (6/5) I did a track night at Atlanta Motorsport Park (AMP). Interesting track, not sure how to describe it.
Has some good elevation changes, long sweeping curves. It is not a power/speed circuit. I think more of a circuit that
you can find a nice flow to it.

The night was strange, in that first session it was raining, talk about learning a new track in the rain and trying to figure
it out. So best time was a 2:10. Next session rain had stopped track was wet, was now more familiar with the layout. But
still wet and slick, but knowing where the course layout helped a bit. So time down to 2:02. By the third session track was trying
and a dry line was appearing. So I decided to let it ripe. It felt good, was hard on it Best time of the night
was down to 1:50. So it was fun, but a couple areas need to improve. Actually, itís a long stretch, from turn 12 to 16. Mainly because going up to turn 12
is a steep climb, then with a sharp right and blind,
the from 13 to 15 a long continues curve, which tests how much you believe in grip, to keep the power on.

It was also interesting that I did not get black flag, why you might ask, they have a 98db sound control. I always wonder what the DB is on my Z, since I have
Z1 headers / Z1 resonated test pipes / FI exhaust
with 18" resonated mufflers. It does sound great at speed. Funny, another 370z was there and said he heard me on the track, that is
why I am so surprised I did not get black flag

OK, last Sunday I went and did an autocross, it was a bit wet part of the time as the pictures show. So I simply run for seat time and fun.

this shows the water splash best

the white you see on the car, is paint-n-peel, I use it to protect from stone chips, but in the wet it turns white and then drys clear

enjoy

:Other notes from Last Wednesday (6/5) at AMP
- another Z owner, that's black cherry, rare nice
cannot remember the last time someone got the color right
- talked to the President of essex parts services (he was driving a 2017 GTI, common areas, he and I both owned 84 GTI and both had raced Formula Fords, but never crossed paths)
and is looking at the Z as possible track car, based on a conversation with an employee who has a Z
- then a person who drives a S2000, came over and looked at the car, because he was thinking about getting a Z as a daily driver...
Just an interesting evening.

Yes, there were several production delays in getting them completed (jan) and I finally had time today to get them installed.

It was well worth the wait..

I took the Z to the dealership for an oil change, (quick/easy). I always find it funny how the service techs come over and check out the car. Just makes me smile...
