    Your Garage DIY Workshop
    Hi Guys
    I was chasing a problem with my front suspension and really needed to use a hoist to get under and check things out properly. Not having a hoist at home I found these guys not far from my place in Hoppers.
    they have 3 hoists and a whole selection of tools to use, reasonable rates as well.

    I you need to work on your car then these guys might be a good choice, i'll be going back

    Hi Guys
    Martin I would have to disagree with you about the auto being slower out of corners, 
    I am not actually familiar with the 350Z box but the 370Z auto in manual mode is a gem.
    I have flogged the living suitcase out of mine and most people are amazed when they realise its an auto.
    It is also pretty funny when you get a corner wrong and you can drop it down a gear mid corner.
    Auto throttle blip gets the corner marshals attention every time,
     
    MJDZ33 which club are you running with?

    if you are only looking at this for looks then why go with 2 piece
    have a look at DBA 4000 series available slotted and crossdrilled and way cheaper than 2 piece
    unless you knew what you were looking at no one would notice

    Firstly I'm not a 350 expert but the 370 is pretty similar so my 2 cents worth
     
    Sway bars Soft at the rear and firmer up front
    If you have adjustable dampers then the same goes here as well.
     
    Your brake pads will be an issue but given it is your first time out I think you will be fine however make sure you have at least 50% of the pad left cause they disappear fast.
    I love Endless pads and the MX72 ids a brilliant street track pad but not exactly cheap.
     
    Dont buy a set of used semi's unless you really know how they were used. and i wouldn't recommend it for a first time anyway, better to learn how to control the car without relying on the tyres.
     
    Best piece of advice I ever had was that if you can imagine you are standing next to someone and you shove them hard they will likely topple over or at least stumble away from you, however if you put your hand on their shoulder and gradually keep increasing your pressure you can push quite hard before they move. Your car is the same! smooth changes in steering angle will mean you can turn faster with higher loads than if you wrench at the wheel.
     
    Most importantly have fun, Slow in Fast out, and remember the scenery comes up really quick when you get it wrong.
     
    Enjoy

    You will get the lights if you are low on brake fluid as well
    Not sure how else you can get this to happen without breaking something like the yaw sensor
