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:

      I'm in Sydney unfortunately, was about to suggest that though as we're planning a meet this Sunday.

      I'll see what I can do, but like I said, bit hard to find somewhere where you can do it without drawing attention etc
    • P0011 Code (2012 370Z)
      By Trent Bray · Posted
      Anybody have experience with the error code P0011? car is currently with the mechanic...unable to find an actual issue everything is checking out and few things been checked/ replaced but car is still not running right. Initial easier fixes through troubleshooting or stripping it down to access the gasket behind (unsure if it was the galley gasket) are yet to get it going, timing, valves, actuators etc. seem fine as checked once pulled apart a bit... mechanic said he had one or two more things to try then may have to get it to Nissan dealer. Could it be a simpler fix they have overlooked like oil pressure/ filter? but assuming they had already gone their through process of elimination..
    • 370z soft top replacement
      By Cam · Posted
      Hi guys. I bought a 370 roadster recently and when i was checking it out i noticed a little tear starting. i didnt think much of it because my 350 soft top replacement was pretty straight forward, there was plenty of DIY literature and the tops were all over ebay. Now i own the thing, i went looking to buy a replacement top and....err....no literature and next to nothing available. crap. Help? Suggestions? Cheers!
