Carpark woes

Hi all, 

 

 

So i acquired a new parking spot and it seems that the Z cant get over the hump without scraping.

 

My ride is stock height but i think maybe im just a noob at this...

 

Please have a look at the following pics and let me know what you think is the best angle to get in.

 

Currently i take the far right and then try to angle it in, i might consider reversing in.

 

Also i noticed that the slip light comes on and then i loose power, really weird. Is this meant to happen when your scrapping?

 

 

Thanks

 

DK

The Z is pretty good on ground clearance - maybe the angle is greater than it looks in the photo

 

Certainly go over the curb at a 45 degree angle - that's your best bet

 

If a rear wheel hangs and spins slip will come on for sure

Come at the biggest angle you can

As people above have said, try going up on an angle or try reverse parking.

im a tiny bit below stock and struggle to get over most speed bumps. I once went over a bitumen speed bump at the top of a restaurant driveway on a hill, it hit slip and i stalled, started it back up again and it was REALLY struggling, got like 100m up the road and she was nearly undriveable. Just had to turn her off and sit for a bit and all was cool.

My last S14 was lowered and a right royal pain in the ass going over speed bumps, scraping everything there was to scrape. Even my 350Z struggles sometimes and like your 370 is standard height. I'd hate it if it were lowered as with my S14 I found myself planning routes so that I didn't have to scrape the shit out of the bottom of my ZED.   :roadrage:

    • Custom y-pipe and cat combination, I need help!
      By richiez · Posted
      Hey guys I need some help. I bought this car second hand, it has some work done to it but I'm unsure on the details. I'm trying to get a CBE for my car so I thought I'd look underneath. I know part of the exhaust have been replaced since it got sold to the dealership. It looks like the ypipe and cat are a one piece set up? And looks nothing like the stock stuff. What is this pipe? Is it custom? I'm guessing I can only buy a y-back exhaust at this stage unless I buy a CBE and a cat. Thanks!http://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/5cb9a7deea9ce/YouCut_20190419_204915267.mp4 Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

      Hey mate I recently had a similar issue.  I ended up getting the NDS III app on my phone and did the idle 're learn but mine was not as bad as what you're describing.  I pulled an injector to try it to 're learn etc but idled around 700 rpm.
    • Write off advice

      Hi All, I am new to the forums so it is very nice to meet you all and apologies if I am posting in the wrong section. Recently my 370z (2010 convertible auto) has been hit in the back and after a month of assessments and deliberations the insurance company decided it will be a write off due to high costs of repair needed for a full chassis rebuild in the rear. Now they have given me two options: 1 - Take the market value of 23k minus 1.6k of outstanding insurance payments for the period. So about 21.4k. 2 - Go through the other party's insurer, receive 23k - 3k salvage fee and keep the car. So 20k plus the car, which will not be roadworthy anymore. Could I ask for some of your advice, especially if you faced a similar situation in the past? Is it worth keeping the car with 20k, would I be able to sell it for parts or sell it as a whole? It's in a very good condition (minus the chassis and rear damage obviously), engine has done 94k and never had any problems.   Thank you very much for your advice in advance!!!
    • Passenger Seat Sensor
      By BlueZ · Posted
      Hello all, Well it's been a few years but It's good to see this forum is still up and running.  I notice the old Speedo thread is still active :-) So, I was driving with my wife today and she noticed that the seat belt warning didn't go off when she took of the belt as we pulled into the driveway.  I assume that it's the seat sensor.  It doesn't worry me too much but I'm wondering if it will affect the air bags.  Will they go off if it thinks there's no one in the seat? Thanks
