The stock 280zx calipers are HEAVY. Going to an aluminum caliper can save a good amount of unsprung weight.RMS wrote:I search your thread and no mention of 280 struts. are you still running stock brakes? if so why not stock 280 brakes and 13s ?
I'm glad to see that you kept track of this. As my car is pretty bare, I've often wondered what the actual weight penalty would be of adding some sound deadening.funwithmonkeys wrote:Total weight of everything I added was 41lb.
This is true...but that is expensive! I don't spin my KA any faster than 7000 rpm. I have heard that there is a harmonic that sets in at about 7250 rpm that will absolutely destroy them.funwithmonkeys wrote:You guys just need a higher red line. Being able to go to 8000 will fix that shifting issue.
