    Zeee Flutter - What are your plans? BOV or Compressor Surge?

    I originally was going to do BOV's (probably turbosmart veeport pros), but because they added recirc now, I'll probably wait and see how that sounds first. Occasionally a recirc gives you a nice quiet woosh through the tubes that is still plenty audible in the cabin. Also the slight potential...

    2023 Nissan Z Brochure Catalog First Look!

    Aren't the GTR brakes that were on the proto z like 20 grand? I'm okay with it not being 60k lol

    Is Nissan really serious about improving the Z's handling?

    Tamura has said that they've increased the torsional stiffness by 10.9% and rear hatch rigidity by 23.9%. So a stiffer chassis with different spring/damping rates and changed angles feels to me like it will handle better. It probably won't be a track monster, but I'm hoping it will be fun and...

    More looks at Z Sport trim 18” wheels

    Because the car isn't out yet, there's no way to tell what brands are even going to make aftermarket parts for it, and how well they will perform. I will say though, that TEIN's entry level stuff is usually great bang for buck

    Nissan Z Rendered in Midnight Purple & Millennium Jade

    I'd do anything to get the new Z in a midnight purple like off of the skyline. Then put gold wheels on it

    Nissan Z Production Colors Simulation Renderings

    A lot of the GTR folk say that midnight purple 3 is around 900-1000$ per liter. I'm sure Nissan would be able to do it cheaper due to large scale manufacturing, but there's a reason they only put it on single year specialty models

    ONE best new feature that impresses, and ONE that missed

    Best new feature: Competitive Japanese sports car. (Basically I love the styling, and the power/price numbers). Cause the GR86 isnt nearly fast enough for me, and I dont want to be the 10 millionth person with a mustang or Challenger. It looks cool and is fast & better for me than supra because...

    A disappointment dressed in a manual gearbox and V6 disguise

    I'm kinda glad the dude is getting dragged in the comments of the article. I think we'd all get Emiras if we could afford them lol

    Nissan Z vs Toyota Supra

    Those are definitely renders, and to my eye the red is not depicting what passion red on the new Z will look like in a real world environment. It seems to pick up lighting pretty well on the 370z

    The All-New 2022 Subaru WRX (Teased)

    Yikes, 271 horsepower & 258 ftlbs I feel like is really missing the mark. The looks actually aren't horrible to me. Looks like it's fun to whip around, but I hope the STI has at least 320 hp.

    Where did everyone go to school? What was your major?

    Went to Michigan Tech University (essentially Canada in terms of North), got my bachelors in Mechanical Eng. Technology. Loved the school, but the winters were beyond brutal. -20° F, and snow above the roofs of cars

    NISMO Z Configuration Poll - What Specs Would You Like to See?

    Just a quick note for the HP numbers. I've seen people putting torque lower than horsepower, but as long as its the VR30 it will almost assuredly be higher torque than horsepower judging from the dyno thread over at the q50 forum, not that it's a bad thing though.

    Your Favorite *Rare/Limited* Cars of All Time

    One of my favorites is actually very recent. The Alpha Romeo GTAm. Only 500 made, it has an extra 30 horsepower than the quadrofoglio, it shaved 220lbs off, and has only 2 seats because they replaced the back seats with a roll cage, fire extinguisher and helmet rack. Besides also changing the...
