Hey guys, heres my 300ZX. Has 207,000km on it and i think its more than adequate for a P plate rig :)

Here are the Specs:

1990 Nissan 300ZX Z32 "Slicktop"
131.4rwkw Dyno tested(previous owner)

2.5" Twin UAS Catback Exhaust
2.5" Custom Front Pipes
Highflow Cats
K&N Pod Filter
Go Fast Bits Underdrive Pulley
F1 Racing "stage 3" 6 button clutch
ECUtalk Consult Display Unit

Bought the car back in 2009 with a 2.5" Custom catback, UDP, Pod & standard clutch for $6200. Was a very nice looking car, atleast to me, and the motor was in perfect nick so i decided to buy it.

From when i first bought it

Not long after i bought it did i have my first go at the dragstrip, here are some photo's

After 5 runs the best i could come up with was a crappy 15.017 @ 97.22MPH :(. My clutch was slipping on anything more then a 2500rpm launch so i had to take off really easy.

About 5 months after that my clutch decided to call it quits, held up well for a stock clutch IMO. After looking for hours i decided on my new clutch, a F1 racing Stage 3 Button Clutch. Oh boy did this take some getting use to for the first day, soon as i picked up the car i got stuck in peakhour traffic! At the drags was chirping 3rd gear at 100KPH :D

A good 1500k's had passed and the clutch had been well worn in i decided to have another crack at the drags, i HAD to get that 14 second pass!

Decided i would take it easy on my first run so i wouldn't stuff up, managed a 14.847 @ 95MPH first try! :happy: What was even funnier was that i had tried to select 4th but had trouble(bad synchro) so i let off a bit before the finish line. Ok Second run, was really excited to see what i could get, time to see what it was capable of :D


Not Bad considering a lot of first gear was wheelspin and i hit the rev limiter before the finish line! :D


Rear tyres are chinese crap 235/45R17's and were set to 25psi during my runs. After taking my car to Unigroup Engineering, Yavuz concluded that i should be able to run a 14.4 Second pass with a slightly better launch as my 60footer was a pathetic 2.315 seconds.

Mods coming up:
1 Piece Lightweight Tailshaft
Decat Pipes for the track only
AMS Lightweight Pulley Set
Piggyback Ecu of some sort, Either an APEXi SAFC or NIStune.
RE55 Semi Slicks on stock Rims.

Looking to get that 60footer down to 2.1 - 2.0 to see what i can squeeze out of it, no internal work done standard heads & bottom end. I'm fairly confident it will pull a lower 14 second pass after work has been done, just have to wait and see, will keep you guys updated! Only things i can imagine would hold me back are my wallet and my driving :P

The current 17's will be used for the street, and yes the falcon was slow lol
