    Ok, Graham just set up his new Spray booth/Oven and brought a 4WD Dyno Dynamics Dyno to keep everything for the Zs in one place. Yes I know Zs are 2wd but its just how it worked out.
    One Z is to become 4wd anyway.

    great stuff. So you have increased the wheelbase forward by 5", other than to get extra caster which can be gained by angling the towers back, is there another reason for that? Obviously you know what you are doing but she will be arse heavy so I assume that is deliberate.

    I build on Corner weights and this is not Ass heavy, RB26 Large 25 Gearbox, large intercooler and Radiator plus the Powersteering keep the front and rear as good as 50/50. The Z Racecars Ive built all become much more Stable with the extra wheelbase. With final settings the rear wheels sit center of the new rear wheel arches giving quite a bit extra wheel base. Ive been building Z's for 30+ years and have won Championships with them so Ive worked them out quite well.
    This car will run sub 60s at Garbagallo raceway.

    Radical stuff but it all makes sense, good thinking. From what I've seen a lot of modded S30's tend to be a bit bum heavy which is why the question was asked eg my 260 with a FJ20ET engine and gearbox, R180 diff. Not that a bit of extra bum weight is necessarily bad. Keep the info and pics coming.
