What did you do with your Z today V (ON TOPIC DISCUSSION ONLY)

Put my 2022 expiration decal on the license plate. Seven years now, but still seems like yesterday.

Went on the toll road thats seldom used here and did a few pulls to relax and enjoy the Z been a year and change since being on the track and needed a little open road stress relief.

Default Upgrades!

Installed Z1 Aluminum Hubcentric 10mm Wheel Spacers on her today. Just enough to fill out the Wheel Wells without pushing the wheels outside the body. Also, 10mm (or 0.4") is just 0.1" less than how the NISMO wheels sit in the wheel wells. In my mind, this keeps my 370Z within the factory design specs of the suspension. It's also a subtle change so you can see a difference, but just can't tell what was changed - just like I like it.
PS: Had to use the extended studs as recommended by Z1. We tried the 10mm spacers with the stock studs and could only get 4-1/2 turns on the lugs instead of the 5 turns needed...

Good LORD! That was a long winter here in New England. We finally hit some worthy enough weather to unpack the Z's. Primed up the 350, replaced the supercharger oil.. whipped her around for a bit. Put the last ceramic coating on the 370z and dragged her nismo *** around for a bit. Going to be an orgy for the next couple days. .... and more snow coming next week. WTF!

Had to lift the motor a tad to replace the Z1 poly mounts after one of the lower bolts snapped.

Contacted Z1 for a replacement bolt, as it's M10x1.25x90mm full thread and couldn't find it online or in-store. Z1 said the bolt would take 3 weeks to source and cost $70, and I was better off buying all new mounts...

It's a bit of a setback, but the cost is 2.8% of the total project and that wastage rate is more than acceptable.

As long as I don't pull a Solidus I will be happy.

Of course they did. I hope you didn't give them any more money. Fýck Z1

Get the CJM solid mounts. They are awesome and leave lots of room to work!


Looks like Ghost found that bolt: https://www.belmetric.com/10x125-fin...l-p-15889.html. So am I correct in understanding that Z1 wanted $70 for a $1.39 bolt?

The bolt IS $1.39, it's just that they want to charge $68.61 to ship!

Pretty much. But honestly meh. BOV and wastegates ship Monday and I'm deadlined until I fix the mount so.. I'll prob just buy that bolt, refurb the old mounts and sell them here for 100 bucks
