A great write up, makes an excellent show case!
@Walrus, On one of your photos it looks like you have wheel studs and nuts instead of bolts, which kit did you use?

Brian .. i just have the standard issue wheel studs with one locker on each peg ...sorry to disappoint
Nice video @Walrus!
i have done an autosolo in my Z3 1.9 auto
it would have been better in a manual but still loads of fun.
next one will be in my Impreza next month.
what motorsport club are you in Walrus?
This looks fun!
Car sounds great, deep growls intake reminds me of a VR6.
I've question re the bar at the back to which I assume the harness attached too - does it aid structural rigidity noticeably like a rear 'brace' or is it's only function to be a mounting point?
Does it interfere with getting the top up and down?
And what suspension are running and why such low rear compared to the front?
I see you've listed the suspension in the mods section (still getting around this showcase format, I'm usually only on here via Tapatalk!).
Since fitting new coilovers and now adjusting them I've been reading up and I've read that having rake so the front is slightly lower than the rear aids turn-in and downforce but yours is set reverse, just wondering why?
Does the suspension bottom out a lot?
harness bar is just to mount harness but sees to have improved rigidity as a by product
no dosnt interfere with roof at all ... i made it not to
the rear only squats at rear under heavy acceleration the car sits level when stationary
im a big lad as well
the car handles fantastically, both for classic rallies and track use with kumho rubber on
no it dosnt bottom out much ... there is some bottoming out here and there on while driving in anger and at speed over yumps and country roads ... it impacts onto the spare wheel frame but hasnt damaged the car thus far
hartlepool and district motor club is the club im a member of
Great write up ! Lovely looking Z
