  1. Hmmm just testing now it seems fast to me. But every so often I've noticed some slowness, which may be server load induced.
  2. I wouldn't say easily, you'd need a donor front-end off a 260z 2+2 I'd imagine. But yes, fixable.

  9. Maybe also have a read of this thread.
  10. Did you call them? Might be worth a shot, sometimes the websites for these small businesses are not exactly set up right. I'd call them and check what they can do for you?

  12. Just an FYI folks, I asked Richard to post here, initially he sent an email to the club address. But that only really goes to a couple of people. Figured it would be better to start a thread here and you can ask any questions you may have. For those that know Paul has 1 of their gearboxes in his RB time attack Z (which sadly he's now sold).
  13. Gotta get inspiration from somewhere mate.
  14. Not exactly directly related.. but.. https://www.news.com.au/finance/business/retail/jb-hifi-fullyear-results-retailers-profit-up-71-to-250-million/news-story/d53d169e1b1f560ecf54e155024457a8 My emphasis in bold, I think with modern performance vehicles becoming quite "numb" in feel and very electronic. There is a sense that a lot of the joy in driving is from the older analog experience. Now sure most of us don't want to daily drive a Z in traffic if we don't have to, but they are the artisan version of cars. The mechanical feel is what attracts us to these older cars and the experience (even if slow by modern standards in many respects) doesn't matter. Personally I love the smell of the old vinyl seats, the squeak of the clutch pedal, the creeks of the old battle ship (chassis) and the smell of rich fuel on start up (or with the windows down lol). I think electric cars will become so good and maintenance free in future that us older car aficionados will still want to tinker, repair, maintain and explore what it means to own an older vehicle, much like the vinyl above.
