  • 240rs maxi updates

    I thought I'd post a few fabrication photos from the past week. I've been working on the front end, and am confident about the way it is working out now. Its far from completion but will hold the intercooler, oil cooler and most importantly, house the four mounting points for the cage that holds the front half of the front undertray.

    Bill, nice to see you on here. I'm working on getting your setup figured out right now. I'll shoot you an email later with the details.

          JESUS CHRIST! Beautiful stuff! I need a tow vehicle and trailer so I can build one like that, although probably not THAT good. You have given me soooooooo many ideas as to how I am going to build my next 240 between this thread and the ones you have on zilvia.

            The sway bars are completely done and the second hand Ohlins rear dampers showed up. They couldn't get enough out of the Konis so these Accord rears fit perfectly with Z32 uprights, plus they are externally adjustable. I also mounted the clutch.

                sways look awesome

                  It doesn't look like you are going to make those sway bars adjustable from the cockpit! Why not, it would be easy to do at this point? Weld a lever on the sway bar, run a cable up to an adjustment mechanism in the cockpit, done!

                    Ahmed,
                    If I had any extra time I would. I can barely find a hour here and there to work on the car

                    Nismofly,
                    I will definitely be at VIR this year for GT Live. I think that will probably be the only proper event I will do. I want to do 2-3 4 hour test sessions before that and get the suspension set up and get used to driving the car with an actual differential!

                    racepar1,
                    I'd really like cockpit adjustable ones but that can be a winter project. I figure it would take at least 10 more hours to set that up without buying new parts from genesis or another expensive manufacturer.
                    I want to do very little over the winter and save money to do some bigger events

                      with all the new parts you have Ill be very interested to see what kind of time the car turns at VIR, as long as its dry *cross fingers*...truly over the past 2 years youve never been able to show the cars true potential

                      from what Ive seen you do most of your test and tune at NHIS, but if youre ever over at the glen Ill try to make it out for sure
