Hi Ralph im also 45 YO. And own the very car you describe, For me it’s a road registered track only car and sometimes it gets taken out for the odd cruise (twice in a year). I bought a used 2014 Non Nismo 370z Manual and did the following mods, the intention was to always have this as a track toy. Oil cooler Z1- This needs to be your first Mod New Hardrace bushes and rear arms throughout the car. stillen exhaust front upper control arms (SPL) good set of 2 piece disks and race pads- brakes are really good for about 6 -7 Hard laps Then you have to back off for 1- I may get brake ducting, I see no need for an upgrade here. MCA Red coil overs - best Mod ever I can turn them down and they are very comfy. white line front sway Bar standard rear sway bar Standard subframe and diff bushes ( I need to do the diff ones) 1 race seat 😀 1 professional race level alignment and corner balance Nt01 semi slick 275 40 18 all round car has a basic tune to enable left foot braking and maybe get it a little more responsive -uprev Nismo body kit for the looks - 😎 the car is absolutely on Rails And turn In is Porsche like. In the correct hands will Keep up with a hi end sports Car ( Not on the straights however, but Its not drag racing! )
Things I’d do to it now? half cage (For my well-being) Mechanical LSD As the VLSD doesn’t like getting hot and I have to change fluids every track day to keep it working. a few instructors have jumped in with me and they have been surprised on the cars composure and balance and those guys get to see a lot of cars. https://youtu.be/olkAcVSDwYs Im after something Lighter and more track only for my next car and am contemplating selling the Z but I would do so with a heavy heart, Maybe I can convince the Wife to keep it for her Daily....
