Default New to Z's, central Florida

I recently bought a 2009 370z, and so far I really like it. I sold my 2002 Miata to get something bigger, lol, and got the Z.

Ive been to a few Miatas at the Gap (Deals gap/Tail of the Dragon/ North Carolina) and hope to attend a similar Z event up there- if you havent driven in that area your missing out!

Not sure what mods I'll be doing to the Z, but Ive already got lots of questions and hope to be able to provide some answers to other members as well.

get in touch with the central florida Z club (CFZC). they take probably the largest group to ZdayZ every year which is at Fontana Village at the end of hellbender. Z event next to the dragon for the last 15 years

CFZC has a FB group (i'm honorary member being that i live in PA lol) they do a lot of Z/car related things year round. i was just down there recently with a few of the guys 2 weeks ago.

Yeah, Fontana village is where the Miatas meet also, right at the beginning of the Tail. I'll check out that FB group too, thanks!

Welcome.

The very first mod you should make is to pull the ESCL (steering lock) fuse. See link in my sig.

Many questions about the Z have already been answered on this forum (and others) - it's 10 years old, so plenty of time for people to ask. If you can't find the info you are looking for using the site's search, try going to any of the major search engines (DuckDuckGo, Google, Bing, etc) and add "site:the370z.com" to your search string. Eg, "oil pump site:the370z.com"

Yes I just read about the steering lock fuse and I plan to do it. Also appreciate the "site:370z.com" because I often forget to search that way!

Hello there! I am new too. Would be moving to Florida soon due to my work, plan to buy homes in Florida https://tranio.com/usa/fl/detached/ in about 2-3 years. Any advice on the location?
