whats up guys, new here, new to sport bikes for the most part basically riding it though with alot of confidence thought 2 wheels have always been natural for me. started out doing BMX/street stunting did some dirtbike stuff tried at restoring an old old ninja (92 600) was unreliable so i sold it. lets see, was originally a Z car guy got my first self bought car at 17 this is it:

then sold it for good reasons got a 1974 260Z chassis swapped in a 2.8 turbo motor was fast made 1st and second gear near useless but i dont know, got sick of its fussyness and sold it i mean what do you expect though with custom wired ECU using a near 30 year old EFI harness haha:


heres a vid for when i went to sell it making my 1st gear useless point: http://s96.photobucket.com/albums/l...60Z vids 08/?action=view&current=P2030175.flv

then i tried my hand at doing a restoration what i started with a rusted under carriage and primer body:



continued in next post

HAHA close actually, close 2 times. one turned to two chicks in the bed naked foolin around, but yeha thats where it ended, the other time it was offered but they decided to split me up instead? idk where the fun is in that for me but whatever... lol

also i would have been very helpful in advice about painting but thats probably about it thanks to the whole distance issue.

Welcome to the forum. We have lots in common. I have owned a 1991 Nissan 300ZX TwinTurbo, a 1978 280 Z, and a 1990 Nissan 240SX. Now I have a ZX-6R. We would have LOTS to chat about. :D

fawkin right we would, that is a non turbo 1990 300zx btw you can tell because no turbo wing an no turbo front fascia for the SMIC's it was still fun, i actually was going to get a twin turbo but i vouched for the bike instead, also its a 90 240sx and a 1977 280z so wow.... we do have to much in common, dude, get outta my head! :D haha jk


as for changing the turbo's on the 300zx's they arent a sequential setup and its a RWD car so there is no rear turbo haha they are both on the sides and cannot be changed without pulling the motor or denting the wells/firwall for clearence purposes. they SUCK with work room thats for damn sure haha. also a 3kgt VR4? aka tranny bomb ;) lol just hasslin yah. i was planing on getting a DSM but didnt come across one that met my approval so i went nissan again and might start making this one a drift car.... idk though. still thinking about maybe selling the ninja next summer (blasphemy!) cause i got it for a deal and getting a 240Z a 69-72 and then sticking a SR or an RB motor in it. but thats just a maybe.....

All I can say is with all that know how and knowledge just make sure not to accidently mix em--as in when flying don't make the mistake of trying to hang off for better cornering, especially if others are in the cockpit with you :D
