    On the ramps at work, Kaaz 2-Way LSD is going in.

    9A9133EE-6043-4D9C-984D-5B378ECED6EC.

    Other Jobs to sort are clicking driveshafts and general check over. Alignment to sort out at some point before Pod​

    These wheels are growing on me haha.

    I'm not sure how much research you have done,but clicky shafts can be sorted by putting some grease inside the hub/half shaft spindle. The noise comes from a dry joint apparently.

    They do, although the colour is a heap load better in person lol

    I have read this, shafts are coming out once the diff is sorted.

    One other thing i need to sort is the Revs, they seem to be slow to drop. is yours the same? not sure if its normal on these or not.

    Not that I've noticed. seems normal when I drive it.

    That diff looks the dogs!

    You should come to Birmingham Wheels if you are after a local drift day.

    I did used to drift there every so often with the Flatout Factory guys, but i'm going to be using 3 Sisters as my new Track. Super easy to get to and seems like a good day there. only up the M6, easy as to get too.

    What trick did you use to disable the driving assist stuff? Like the stability control and stuff for burnouts and skidding? I've seen various things like pull pin 101, cut one of the fuses, unplug the grey connector at the abs pump. So I figured I'd ask someone who is actually using a 350z for drifting like I'm trying to do.

    My car does not have VDC so I just remove the ABS plug. If you remove pin 101 you dont have any brake lights.

    Have a look at this for VDC/Brake disable mod

    Santa Pod closing in and i find myself needing a new clutch.

    Cheeky burnout the other week fried what was left of the Clutch.

    So, back on the ramps we go for a Comp Clutch and Braided Clutch line.

    DE51A421-5822-4086-A90C-17BF3B176AA6.
    81EBF313-E26E-4E87-8094-0D0E665B3690.
    79C0C7B3-ADE3-42E4-A612-EF962BF662EB.

    Just as well it died now, rather than at Pod i guess...​

    Making space, well, trying too..!

    Rear speaker framework and trim is coming out. Absolute mission, cutting and drilling spot welds;

    32.
    31.

    Making space for spare drift wheels and also a cage.

    Should be worth it in the end i'm sure...
