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.....

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

A local engineer in Hobart did the diff conversions. 

Only cost a heap of cash.

Hi Mick, zed240au I am wondering what hand brake setup you have in your 240 as I would like to get away from the hydraulic.

Hello Oldzguy,

 

It actually wasn't me, I'm in W.A. Working....... Well hoping it wasn't my car lol.

 

There are a few cars now getting around in that color but I haven seen another zed in that color apart from in photos yet but it's sounding like there is one down your way.

 

How is your 260 going?

Hello Mick,

 

Ah yes I have had a look at them but that's as far as I have got, just looking and wondered what brackets I would need to be able to fit them so I can get rid of the hydraulic setup I have at the moment.
