From across the Tasman some rumblings could be heard...



But good to see some activity in the Tasmanian section all the same.

240Z circuit car in the south, getting close to the end of a 5 year conversion from an L28 Turbo to an RB26/30.  I'm confident this will be the year it hits the track again but I've said that at the start of the year for the last 5 years.....

Hello fellow Taswegians ............ good to see there are a few of us down here and another V8 one at that.

What V8 do you have on your 240Z Zed240au?

I can't remember, is that a 2+2 or a two seater? If a 2 seater I'd be careful about quoting it as a 6.0ltr to the authorities (re power steering enquiry).

I remember that the builder's photos didn't show what parking brake system was installed. Can you advise? Thanks

I would be very interested in seeing your car as well. They sound very similar in build as it sounds like you know what's in mine.

All of the modifications have all been approved so there is no drama there. I have spoken to them in regards to the steering and i have sent the application in with all related information regarding the modifications i have done to the column for approval so should all be good.

Whats your like with 4.3 diff gears? I have 3.7 in it at the moment but have 3.9 to go in. Its a 2 seater.  Park brake is hydraulic and nothing was questioned about it during the inspection.

Looks like all Tassie Zeds are modified.  ;)
I have a 76 260z 2+2 under going a full rotisserie build with a LS1 , T56 and Holden diff, r31 rear disc and calipers with ventilated front hylux 4 spot calipers. Same exhaust as Mick as he built mine. Maffless tune and twin 4" cold air intake. Still on jackstands at the moment as it has been a 4 year build but should be finished September this year. Just finishing the body work mechanical done.

Im very happy with 4.3 diff improved my lap times at Symmons plains The gearbox ratios work much better pulling hard in 5th into coca cola corner And on Hillclimbs ratios work well and launches a dream last Hillclimb i was matching the targa winning evo10 with launch control to first timing mark And it still cruises happily in 6th on 1700 revs for 110 kph
Surprised you got through rego here with hydraulic hand brake but good luck to u
What part of the state u in Justin

Yes i was surprised too with the hand brake but im happy it did though i will in time sort some other setup for it. I did look at a 4.3 for mine but figured it might be too low,  now thinking i should have lol oh well 3.9 it is. Im in launceston.

A local engineer in Hobart did the diff conversions. 
Only cost a heap of cash.

I can imagine, nothing comes too cheap does it.
