    Z Build 11ty billion.

    Ok, Im helping a mate build 9 240/60Zs.
    Heres a start on the first. This one is Tough RB26DETT power.

    Ill add details as time goes on. The new old stock Graham has collected for this collection of cars is crazy.
    Some will be restos as they are 1969 built cars with the rest modded in different ways. Graham has been buying restorer cars and parts cars nationally and still looking for more.
    I guess most of us would if we could.

    That's a nice shed/set up, looks like a good way to build cars.

    The Engine is a full built 26 with usual Pistons, Rods Cams etc with Tomei Arms Turbos and Trust intake along with an RB25 Gearbox and NISMO centered GTR Diff.
    Trim is all new inc Velo seats with the whole lot done by Motortrim in Black Leather.
    Every possible part that can be had new has been replaced, Graham buys everything in bulk to do all the cars.
    Barney better keep selling Oil so Graham can finish these cars as one is to be a Racer for him, Targa maybe?

    Id guess total Shed space to be about 1200m2. Its in a big a Oil Business. The Part in the Pic Graham calls his "Z Shed" His house carport is full of them also.
    4 Mastiff x Ridgebacks and Graham there to Guard them. Barneys FD SS sits in this shed also just to lower the Standard.

    240Zs use a Strut and a lower wishbone for rear.

    Not sure how all the cars will be? the 3 sub 60 chassis numbers are planned as standard reastos.
    One car is an X racecar and we have talked of that one being the Racecar. This build is Grahams Road come Track day car.
    The Wheels are Ashlys (Barney) FD RX7 wheels, Graham plans to use the same but with 265 X 18 rear and 245 X 18 front 050 Yokohamas.
    We have set the front up with a Subaru Power steering rack setup I started using in the 90s. These cars need much Caster but get to heavy so power steering is a must.

    Keep the pics coming with these builds please. I think those billet alloy parts are quite reasonably priced you wouldn't get them made over here for that sort of cost would you?

    I know what you mean. After I set roll centers on their kit I lock the mount with a Thru pin both ends. I talk to them often and they do listen, The early kits used Wilwood rotors, We all know thats not good so now they use "J" Hook rotors.
    This Kit is the Update with Late Diff mount that also solid clamp the Shaft.

    I need to update my own Z Build soon, The IP VN slowed that up but there has been huge changes to the Chassis since the last picks I posted.
    Thats going to use a NASCAR Ford engine with a Road course Cam and EFI.
