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

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:

      Hi Tony, just saw your post, although it is over 6 months old now. Did you end up getting your roof sorted? If so whereabouts. I own a Roadster, live in Newcastle and am having an issue with the deck lid hitting the roof 5th bow.Still opens and closes fine for now. It appears to be a very common problem as I have following the ongoing US 370z forum on this matter. There is actually a Nissan service bulletin out for this plus others for roof issues. Rodd

      I removed the stock cooler when I fitted a 34 row fast intentions oil cooler last year. According to fast intentions the stock water cooled oil cooler will hinder the effects of a front mount air cooled oil cooler. There’s a thread explaining why they say it’s best to remove the stock cooler  when fitting a front mount cooler if you feel like googling it.
