Exciting news: I just got a 240Z race car!
 
Hi everyone! My name is Mike Clifford, and my father and I run Michael's Vintage Racing. We work on mostly British cars at our shop, but Z-cars have always caught my attention at the track and I've kept one eye open in case something appeared at the right time.

Luckily, that time has come! :D

This is all new ground for me, but I've already got a list of things I'm excited to do to the car :)

I've been reading up the past few days on Zs to familiarize myself, and I want to absorb as much information as I can ASAP. I've been reading about:
Basic information
Weak spots with race cars
Differences between 240/260/280 cars

If there's anywhere else I should definitely go, I'm looking forward to it!

Welcome and congratulations! ****, those race cars are really something aren't they. My buddy from DSRLeasing had one a while back and he took me on track once - we had amazing experiences. Would love to do this again, therefore I started looking for something similar as well! Looks really good, enjoy your ride!

Thanks! I'm really looking forward to finding out what the car is like on track.

I've been having some fun coming up with potential liveries for the Datsun, and I'd like to get some opinions! Which do you think looks best? Any other ideas I should try? The colors came out a bit funky for some reason, but it's the same color scheme the Ginetta uses:

definitely #1 . The stripe is killer

Thanks for the input, guys!

I tallied up the whopping 169 votes I received in the livery poll, and here are the final scores!

Type 1: 73 votes
Type 2: 27 votes
Type 3: 58 votes
Type 4: 11 votes

These are some designs I and various fans came up with in the meantime! If you have any opinions of these or any other ideas, feel free to share!

Wow, looks amazing. Never had an race car before, must be a lot of fun. I was driving one few times back when my buddy from DSRLeasing owned one. Congratz!
