    Hahaha leave me alone! I've only just bought it and big tyres with no PS is tough! Can't make it to the next one unfortunately guys. I'll be having surgery a few days before. Should be able to make the one after that..

    DreamZproject 240Z #365 build

    Oh yeah, and I also got Lock to install my genuine Z JDM fender mirrors I gave it a decent crack today as well. I gave the whole car a decent wash for the first time, and then spent about 3 hours grinding the window tint off the rear hatch (awful job!) Ready for the my first hill run tomorrow :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

    Diagnose dead battery or power leak?

    Just for anyones interest, I'm thinking of this puppy; https://www.lithiumax.com.au/product-page/lithiumax-new-450cca-black-lcd-series-battery A tad on the low Ah side, but I'll install a power breaker for when the car's stored more than a week anyway. CCA seem more than adequate especially considering Lithium's basically dead flat power drain curve.

    Diagnose dead battery or power leak?

    Hell, it's probably the battery. Indicator is red enough! Has anyone used Lipo car batteries before? They've come down in price a lot over the last couple of years and weigh sooo much less than a lead acid!

    Diagnose dead battery or power leak?

    Bolted nicely to the bellhousing. There's also a lead connecting to the chassis pretty poorly... are both connections required or is the chassis one just a failsafe? The indicator mayyy be red... but it's not very clear...

    Diagnose dead battery or power leak?

    Good idea Greg! I'll check the indicator too. If it's clear and uncharted will that still mean it's stuffed? Or just need a charge?
  10. Hey guys, Couple of days ago I jumped in the Z in the morning and wouldn't crank due to a dead battery. I whacked the battery on the charger and all was well for the following couple of days. I've now tried to start it again this morning and the battery is dead again... I'm not sure of the battery is old as I've only just picked up the car, but how might I tell if it's a bad battery or a power leak somewhere???

    Muffler choice

    Same boat I'm in nice to know a resonator isn't necessary. I want all the drama the exhaust already has, just not that sweet spot resonance.

    So keen!!! My first run with owning a running Z!!!
  13. Oh yeah right! I forgot about it reading strangely! I'll have to figure that out at some point too!
  14. I guess while this thread is here I might try to figure out which diff I've got installed... I have the early 240z box and when doing 110kph I'm doing off the top of my head 4,000rpm. A bit revvy for highway driving, but pretty nice and close for getting to that speed on a L24.
