Chassis and suspension are carried over from Z34.
Center stack is just carried over setup from other Nissanís and Infinitiís.
Same Akebono calipers.
Now external CSC!!!!!
Canít comment on the 9 speed auto though.


Nothing ground breaking, nothing new here. If anything, you can consider it a mechanically improved version of Z34. In this case, I donít have reservation to be an early bird.

I would hope that Nissan addressed this problem in the new model, only time will tell.
The CSC issue has been around since the 350Z days (starting with the HR model I believe) and got carried over to the Z34ís.

I thought the CSC was still internal. Can someone confirm the CSC is external from the factory?

When did Nissan make the CSC external? And is this just for the new Z (post 370Z models)?

And Nissan finally sees the PITA/nonsense of an internal CSC, but prob still uses the same plastic junk as the 350Z/370Z models.

no such thing as an "external csc". doesn't make any sense, the c stands for concentric.

This picture is the 2023 Nissan Z. (that's what you asked about) The CSC has been removed and they have used an external slave cylinder and fork.

No idea what the external slave cylinder is made of, but it's easy to replace if it breaks.
All 370z have a CSC, replacing it usually leads to a second failure. Most people purchase a CMAK kit to move to an external slave cylinder, which works the same way the 2023 Z system works.

1. Read the quote from another member. I know what the "C" stands for. I was asking for confirmation on what another member stated about the CSC being external.

2. My original question/request was if someone could confirm the CSC was external from factory, which you posted a picture from what I thought was stock, and hence my follow up questions on if this is for real on Nissan relocating the CSC to the outside of the tranny housing vs the inside and if so, when this started happening.

3. I know the 350/370Z's have a CSC that is prone to failure (going through this right now unfortunately) and I know which kit most recommend between Z1 and ZSpeed.

4. If Nissan has not addressed the CSC issue/materials it's made from, then most likely is the same sh!t from the 350Z's.

I hope you can understand why anyone would think you don't know what you're talking about.

4. The new cylinder shares nothing in common with the parts on the 350z or 370z. Nissan changed it because they were aware of the issue finally. I'm sure it will work fine. And if it fails, like all parts eventually do, it's a 5 min replacement.

Lol ok internet expert, got it. Once again, read what another member posted. For your convenience, I quoted said member again above. I hope you can understand why I would ask the questions I previously did.

And again, I don't know too much about the new Z, which is why, again, I asked my questions.

All 370Z have the internal slave cylinder. The new Z has the external slave cylinder. Your internal is failing. Get the SpeedZ CMAK kit. The Z1 kit has issues.
