  2. Hi All , Happy new year, seems very quiet on this forum, so as its dreary January, thought i would post what i am up to i had an Invidia Gemini system fitted last summer, absolutely love the sound, but i want to take it to abbey motorsport before the end of April to get an Ekutek tune, to get the best out of it, and i know the throttle response is so much better as i had a 370z roadster 12 years ago when they were new and they tuned that for me i have just removed the front bumper and fitted an Ing's front splitter * as Photo, ( Tarmac Sports ) its being painted in the next 4 weeks and i am having the whole body flat and polished, so it should look very shiny, as I'm going to have as much of the orange peel flatted out. Anyway Happy motoring for those of you brave enough to drive them it the winter weather ( mines only a fair weather car) lol !!! I will post photos when its done

  11. Fenestraz in the top-10 as Nato also shows good pace RELEASE PHOTOS [15] SAVE DOWNLOAD SHARE 2023/01/28 DIRIYAH, Saudi Arabia – Nissan Formula E Team secured their first points of the season in Round 3 of the 2022/23 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, with Sacha Fenestraz taking eighth in Diriyah. After a difficult Friday, the Franco-Argentine driver qualified 12th for the second race of the event and displayed excellent speed to move through the field and score his maiden points for the team. Meanwhile, in the first race of the double-header under the lights, Frenchman Norman Nato also showed his potential, moving up four positions to finish just outside the points in 12th. He repeated the performance on Saturday, again improving by four places. "We've got mixed feelings from this double-header," said Tommaso Volpe, managing director, Nissan Formula E Team. "We came to Diriyah with some new processes, which worked really well, and we're making progress at every race. Qualifying was a bit frustrating this weekend, we made a few mistakes but the race pace was really good for both drivers and they were able to move forwards. We're delighted for Sacha and his first points finish today - it was a great race from him, but we know that we can achieve more. We had a good strategy and we felt strong as a team, and these are good signs for the rest of the season. It's a long championship, though, so now we have to focus on the small details and continue making progress. "We were also really happy to see our customer team McLaren take their first pole and podium in the sport, proving the pace of the Nissan e-4ORCE 04. Congratulations to them, and we'll continue to work hard ahead of India in two weeks' time. There's still a lot of work to do to reach our full potential, but we are on the right path." Driver Quotes Sacha Fenestraz "I'm pleased with today's result, scoring my first points for the team in Formula E. We could have done more in qualifying, but we should be happy with the progress we made and what we discovered over the weekend. We have good pace, especially in the races, but there's still a lot to learn. The field is bunched so close together that if you make one small mistake in qualifying it can be really costly, but this weekend was a big improvement from Mexico. Hopefully we can continue this momentum in India and score even more points on a brand-new track there." Norman Nato "It was an ok weekend, there's a lot of positives for us to take and we know what we have to keep working hard for the races ahead. We need to understand the tires better in qualifying so we can realize our potential, as the race pace has been competitive. It's still early in the season, so we always knew we would have things to work on. The field is so tight, a tenth can mean a lot in qualifying. We clearly have strong pace, we moved forwards on both days and I think if we started a few positions higher, then we would've had a really good chance to finish in the top-10. I'm happy for Sacha and the team for the first points of the season, and now we need to focus on India and being better there."

  13. First double-header of Season 9 to take place under the lights RELEASE PHOTOS [15] SAVE DOWNLOAD SHARE 2023/01/24 YOKOHAMA, Japan – Nissan Formula E Team is ready to take on Rounds 2 and 3 of the 2022/23 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, with the first double-header of the Gen3 era to take place in Diriyah. Following a promising start to the campaign in Mexico, where Sacha Fenestraz impressed by reaching the Duels in qualifying, he and teammate Norman Nato have their eyes set on points in Formula E's only night races. First held in Season 5, the Diriyah E-Prix went under the lights the following year and has since become a favorite for both fans and drivers. The 2.495-kilometer Riyadh Street Circuit is best known for the section between Turns 6 and 14, which is often compared to a bobsleigh run thanks to its downhill nature and fast, flowing corners, and is set to be even more spectacular this weekend with the faster Gen3 cars. "I feel we grew as a team following the season opener in Mexico," said Tommaso Volpe, managing director, Nissan Formula E Team. "Norman and Sacha already have a good connection with the engineers, and the technical team is also gaining a lot of knowledge on how to run the car in qualifying and the race. We're still learning about the power unit and energy management, but that's the same across the grid, so we'll look to continue developing on that side. Diriyah will be a completely different challenge to Mexico, with the tight walls and dirty track surface. Sectors 1 and 2 are really fast and twisty, and it's easy to make mistakes there because of the low-grip levels, which will be a big challenge, especially with the extra power we have this year. We believe we can score points this weekend - we had good pace in Mexico as Sacha proved in qualifying, so we'll look to find that speed again with both drivers and put ourselves in a good position to come away with a strong result." As part of a three-year agreement, Petromin Nissan will be the team's official Innovation Partner for the event. As Nissan's authorized dealer in Saudi Arabia, this collaboration is designed to strengthen the relationship between Petromin Nissan and Nissan, displaying the commitment to innovation and customer service shared by the brands. "This collaboration between Nissan Formula E Team and Petromin Nissan, one of our most important distributors in the Middle East, is further confirmation of how important our involvement in the sport is for Nissan as a corporation", commented Volpe. "Our Formula E project not only promotes but also actively supports our corporate objectives in terms of electrification and sustainability – the two fundamental pillars of Formula E and key goals for both Nissan and Petromin Nissan." Driver Quotes Sacha Fenestraz "I'm really excited for Diriyah and the next event in this amazing championship. Even though we had some issues in Mexico and didn't score points, we still showed what we are capable of in qualifying and in the race. Diriyah is one of the toughest tracks on the calendar - I've been working hard on the simulator and it's a proper street track with tight walls and fast changes of direction. I'm feeling really upbeat following the first round, so I'm hoping to improve on our performance and use all the knowledge we picked up there. It will be challenging as it's another new track for me, but it looks like a lot of fun and I can't wait to get out there and give it my best." Norman Nato "Diriyah is the first double-header of the season so we're going to have to be mentally and physically ready for the challenge, as it's tough for both drivers and teams. It's also the only time we'll race at night this season, which is really cool visually. After a tough start in Mexico, we're aiming for a more positive weekend, as we know we have the potential in the team and the car to be in the top-10. The Diriyah track is a tough one, the grip levels are constantly changing, but it's really fun and satisfying when you put together a good lap. I'm looking forward to it and hopefully we can come away from the weekend with some points."

  15. Fenestraz qualifies for Duels in first race of Gen3 era while Nato unlucky to be caught up in racing incident RELEASE PHOTOS [15] SAVE DOWNLOAD SHARE 2023/01/15 MEXICO CITY, Mexico – Nissan Formula E Team showed strong potential in the opening race of the 2022/23 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship thanks to Sacha Fenestraz's excellent qualifying display at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodriguez. The Franco-Argentine racer put in a good performance in the Group Stage of qualifying to progress to the Duels, narrowly missing out on a semi-final berth. Starting eighth, Fenestraz gained a position on the opening lap with an excellent move, and ran as high as sixth, proving his ability in his first race for the team. In a tightly contested race, the 23-year-old continued to set a good pace, before a system issue regarding energy management saw him drop out of the top-10 during the closing stages. Norman Nato also had a positive start in the #17 car, but was caught up in an incident and forced to retire on the first lap. "It's a little bit frustrating because we could see throughout the weekend that the car was strong," said Tommaso Volpe, general manager Nissan Formula E and managing director Nissan Formula E Team. "Sacha did an amazing job in qualifying to reach the duels, he showed great potential and almost made it into the semi-finals. In the race he was running well and putting in good lap times before an energy management issue at the end of the race. His performance deserved points, so we are obviously disappointed, but we have to move on to the next event and look for better there. We know we have factors to improve on but it's good to see that we are starting from a strong base, so we will analyze what happened today and build towards stronger results in Diriyah." Season 9 of Formula E returns at the end of the month, with the double-header in Diriyah taking place on 27-28 January. Driver Quotes Sacha Fenestraz "I was really happy to make it through to the Duels in qualifying, the competition is really tough so we did a great job and almost made it into the semi-final. The race was a bit frustrating, as we definitely had the potential to score points. Towards the end, we had an issue with the energy management. We'll look to find out what happened and correct it for the next race, but despite not scoring points it was a positive weekend, we made a big step between FP2 and qualifying and we know the areas we need to improve on." Norman Nato "It wasn't the race we expected or hoped for. In FP2 we were feeling positive, the pace was good but we didn't quite get the set-up right for qualifying, which cost us a bit of time. In the race we were hit on Lap 1 and had to retire with damage. It's frustrating because we need all the track time possible to learn about the new car, but we still leave Mexico with more data and more understanding on what we need to do to improve. We'll put this one behind us and turn our attention to preparing for Diriyah in two weeks' time."

  17. Squad ready to tackle Autódromo Hermanos Rodriguez in the first race of Season 9 RELEASE PHOTOS [12] SAVE DOWNLOAD SHARE 2023/01/11 YOKOHAMA, Japan – Nissan Formula E Team is set to take on the maiden race of the Gen3 era as the 2022/23 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship gets underway in Mexico City this weekend. Drivers Norman Nato and Sacha Fenestraz will compete for the Nissan Formula E Team for the first time at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodriguez as Season 9 begins. Following the introduction of the game-changing Gen3 regulations, the 2023 Mexico City E-Prix is thought to be one of the most unpredictable in Formula E history. "We've not had too much time between testing in Valencia and the first race, so we've been busy analyzing data from the programs we ran and making adjustments to our car," said Tommaso Volpe, general manager, Nissan Formula E and managing director, Nissan Formula E Team. "One of the most important factors this weekend will be to finally see how each team will adapt to the new technologies in the Gen3 car, as we're all starting from scratch in that sense. We're really focused and looking to implement everything we learned in Valencia for a smooth weekend with the new car and systems. It's exciting as it will be the first time we see everybody's true pace and how each team manages every key performance factor in the car. We'll be aiming to start the season strongly and set ourselves on a path to grow throughout the campaign." The new season marks the first time Nissan Formula E Team competes as one team, with a bold new livery featuring a cherry blossom design. The flower is a symbol of new beginnings, reflecting both the team and the championship entering new eras in 2023. With extra power, higher speeds and a striking car design, the 2022/23 campaign represents a huge milestone for the championship. The series is also set to visit four new locations across the 16-round calendar, with trips to Hyderabad, Cape Town, Sao Paulo and Portland booked in. Nissan has a strong automotive history in Mexico, employing more than 15,000 people and recently celebrating 60 years of operations in the country. The brand's first manufacturing plant outside Japan was in Cuernavaca, and more than 14 million Nissan vehicles have been produced in Mexico in total. Driver Quotes Norman Nato "I'm really excited to get Season 9 underway! It's going to be an interesting one, with the new cars, my first race for the team and at a new track for me. However, I'm feeling prepared and confident in the work we've done in the off-season and at testing in Valencia. I've seen and heard about the amazing atmosphere in Mexico City, so I can't wait to race through the stadium in front of so many passionate fans." Sacha Fenestraz "I don't think anybody knows what to expect this weekend, but it's going to be an incredible moment to be part of. We've been pushing hard to make a positive start to the Gen3 era and I'm looking forward to my first race as a full-time Formula E driver. My target for Mexico is to build my confidence in the car and have a positive season opener. There's a lot of events coming up soon, so I want to begin strongly, show good speed and try to limit my mistakes. The test in Valencia was good but it always feels different at an event, so I'm looking to get experience under my belt and continue building for the year ahead."

  19. I've tried a few different spacers on my 370Z Nismo (2015+). If you have stock suspension, generally you can get away with 20mm spacers. Unfortunately, if your car is lowered, the V2 lips on the wheel arches can cause rubbing at the rear with 20mm spacers. So, I thought I try 15mm... With a bit of trimming of the inside of the lips, 15mm spacers worked on the rear, but... 15mm spacers didn't fit the fronts! The smaller wheel cut-outs on the hub side of the wheel aren't deep enough for the wheel studs to clear (whereas the rear wheels have deeper cutouts so were fine). So, I decided to try 20mm on the fronts and 15mm on the rears... thinking it will make the handling absolutely aweful... I was wrong! There's a few issues, tramlining but it wasn't that bad... And weighting on the steering is reduced (but I plan to explore geo adjustments to compensate for this)... But, the balance felt great! What 370Z do yo have and what have your experiences with spacers been? More on my experiences in this vlog:

  25. Over the last couple of weeks my car has been misting up quite a bit and also getting a lot of water on the front and rear screens, I didn`t think to much of it a first but yesterday I found out that the passenger footwell was wet through. It could be the aircon drain that is blocked and causing the moisture to find another way and I know that there is a loom that passes through the bulkhead on the passenger side, does anyone know of any common problems or other causes? Nothing has been done to the car recently so nothing has been disturbed resulting in possible water ingress.
