Keep in mind this Z has been completely stripped out leaving only what keeps it running and street legal. It also has a bit of a rust problem that has left big holes in certain places. :shock:

    Does this weight sound ligit? I'm not confident in the calibration of the scale either.
    get with eric, that jy scale probably hasn`t been calibrated in 10 years. the one on base is dead on.

    Tokico Illuminas & Tokico springs. I had an extra subframe that I did the camber correction to (slotted the holes & welded tabs onto it ) and I installed urethane subframe bushings on it as well. He is lazy (and is ruining his rear tires) and hasn't brought it by for me to swap it in yet. It also has MSA sway bars, complete 3" exhaust (cheap in town job but works well), AVC-R, urethane bushing kit, and TT front calipers. I swapped his 87 struts assemblies onto his 86 & vice versa. I will then modify his subframe to put in his brother's car. He wants a turbo upgrade but I advised against it until he freshens the engine and allows me to port everything & he gets a gutted plenum. 156,000 miles on it now. I did the timing belt job on it recently to ensure its reliability. The next thing he wants is for me to paint it bright red. That should be done by the end of the summer. Gonna paint his lil brother's the Nissan dark charcoal metallic. Should look quite good! Both of them. Then we'll be rolling 3 deep here in Vegas. lol

    I got my buddy hooked on Z31s. He woulda given up on them already if I weren't his mechanic. He bought his 2nd one without having me check it out. He paid too much & it needed waaaaaaaay too much work. That was the grey one. He has since given that to his lil bro (I'll be doing his work as well). I found his current Z, the red one. He's much happier now. Check it out.

    it has some issues....but the main things i can definetly work out. Brake rotors, pads, bla, bla.

    The 5 speed was rebuilt a year ago, also (dur) with a new clutch. It has a new cat, everything anolog. It is so kinda nice. The bad things. Driver pillar has common rust on the bottom, minor front passenger fender damage (bent back with my hands), the speedo is up to 135mph at about 20mph :shock: .

    So it is just a commuter anyway.

    yeah, my roommate who just move in like a week ago needs a car. He said he really like my Z. So I browsed craiglist and found this thing
    http://santabarbara.craigslist.org/car/175804005.html

    I have seen it at my coffee shop job before.... I never realized it was a slick top, or i would have bought it. But the old guy needs a car other than is V8, water leaking, gas guzzling van.

    I've been telling my friends this for a couple of years now. Once people find out the Z31 is a very good & very cheap platform to build for drifting it will become like the 240sx. Not many clean chassis left to find & the ones you see on the road will be totally riced out . Sad. I kinda hope that never happens. I like when people ask me what my car is.

    Z31 FTW!

    Just because it's 100 times more unique and much less *yawn* than S13/S14 with SR20.

    lol, have they ever seen anything with a bit of displacement + boost doing it?

    I agree with the whole sitting on the axle.
