  1. This speed was in a 370Z? Sent from my Swift 2 Plus using Tapatalk
  2. What speeds were you doing? Sent from my Swift 2 Plus using Tapatalk
  3. Was that all year round? Would 33psi be alright for high speeds on the autobahn, if doing high speeds for a certain amount of time, or would 35psi be best? Just wondering if I decide to go to Germany this year. Sent from my Swift 2 Plus using Tapatalk
  4. Recommended pressures all round is 35psi which I guess is for all speeds the car is capable of. What are safe tyre Pressures on this car? Could you travel at high speeds if the pressures were slightly below 35psi? During the winter (which consists of a lot of town driving, hardly anything on the motorway) I have the pressures at just under 35, about 33, to give a little more grip in the cold conditions. Track days (which I hopefully will do one this year): What recommended pressures are advisable? Sent from my Swift 2 Plus using Tapatalk
  5. I wasn't sure if the OEM pads and discs fitted to the 370Z were of a sports design which would need bedding in. This is the first car I've had that has needed new pads and discs. I've searched online and there seems to be conflicting advice: Some say you do, some say you don't, others say just drive normally but don't brake extremely hard for the first 100 miles? Any idea if a garage fitting new pads and discs would take the car out and bed them in before collection?
  6. I had new oem pads and discs fitted months ago (not been able to drive for months due to a back problem) but I'm wondering is there a correct way to bed them in? I'm sure they are the original pads and discs for my 2011 370Z and thought they worked very well on the track days I've done.
  7. Thanks for the info. From what you said I must have a normal lead-acid battery.[emoji106]
  8. I have a Black & Decker (model BDV1084) which is a few years old now.I don't know how clever the 'smart' part of the charger is. If the battery is AGM will my charger charge it correctly? I don't know. As you mention, a AGM battery can charge slightly higher than a lead-acid battery. If I have a AGM and is charged to 14.4v instead of 14.7v, I'm wondering if that will make a difference to the battery?
  9. I'm still not sure what type of battery I have. If it is a AGM, I hope I haven't damaged it using my standard charger, but it is one of the 'smart' ones. I've searched and searched but can't find the information I'm after, whether using a standard Smart charger can damage a AGM battery?
  10. From what I've read, batteries used for stop-start are AGM so need a charger designed for this type.As mentioned above, a different charging algorithm is used.
  11. From what I've read, an AGM battery needs a different charging algorithm than a standard battery but I can't find out what happens to a AGM battery if a charger designed only for lead-acid is used.
  12. I do have a battery charger but it's designed to only charge lead-acid batteries. I was trying to find out what type of battery is fitted to the 370Z. It looks like it is a lead-acid. I have searched on Google and emailed Nissan UK who weren't 100% sure, which surprised me. In the end I decided it must be a lead-acid and used my charger. It took 6 hours to fully charge.
  13. And another video I've come across:
  14. Came across this aswell. Nothing to do with Nissan but it is cool. The things some people to do their cars. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=duEBuJnEXhM
