What have you guys done re strut braces? I'm chasing some up but obviously whiteline don't do them for the zed (not that I can see). I do remember someone selling them at the nationals but didn't check to see who it was. Any pointers?

They are not really adjustable though. Len Brennan made an interesting one for his 260z well i believe he made it.
www.len-brennan.com.au he's a member here too give him a bell.

Just a question, why would you want adjustable strut braces?

For those with a wallet with no end I've seen some Carbon Fibre Strut Braces on ebay recently in the USA though.
They certainly look the part .

However, if you are going to have them made to suit your car, then "adjustable" serves no purpose. well not that i can see anyway.
I see the quoted Whiteline price of around $200. I paid about that for mine which were made to suit the car. Depends on what style you like best i suppose

so a mass produced one is worth getting adjustable, otherwise if its custom, no point making it adjustable unless you arn't that confitable taking proper measurements or something or you want to try and pull back you struts a few mm, whic ive also seen done...

If the camber in the front or rear of a Z was off, could you fit an adjustable brace and crank it either inwards or outwards to change the camber? At that distance from the hub, I imagine you wouldn't need much to make a difference.
Anyone tried/looked into this?

Up until the Nationals I never gave it a thought but it looks like those guys had a lot of fun on the track. So next nationals I want to be ready for the track day, (hopefully much sooner!). My plans are to prep everything for a mild L28 and the half cage followed by brake upgrade is next on the list.

Ideally I would love to have my car finished for the next nationals, but I'm a slack bugger and I can't see that happening.
