BTR Nissan 350z

What is the year/make/model of your car?

Joe: 2003 Nissan 350z touring.

What is something really notable about it? Horsepower, rare or special modification, something nobody else has done to theirs?

Joe: I think what makes my car unique is its dual setup. I can "stance" one weekend and finish top of my class the next. People always talk negative about ruining the handling and I have to say I can compete with excessive camber. I'm making changes to the camber setup at the moment but the car will still be a show car that's raced. Best of both worlds lol.

Why did you build your car the way you did?

Joe: 2 I really started to build a show car that can be driven. As I've driven it harder and harder I've pulled the fenders and ran negative camber to stop from rubbing tire constantly in hard corners. Eventually caused me to get track wheels and this has created the car it is now.

Are you done with it? If not, what's next?

Joe: Are we ever done? Lol. The list is long still... as I write this it is in the shop getting the exterior redone. One of the "stand out" mods will be the widened rear fenders to allow me to dial out some camber and still fit my show wheels. Soon after will be sway bars and poly bushings to stiffen me up on the track. Stickier tires are on the wish list and I am saving for an engine rebuild.

What's your favorite thing about the type of car you have?

Joe: I've always been a Nissan fan, this is my 12th Nissan/Infiniti. That being said I love how versatile the Z can be. I can cruise in the city and break necks at every block then switch wheels and try to break my times on the track.

What's your favorite thing to DO with your car?

Joe: Drive! Cars are meant to be driven... I really enjoy doing the track events: , time attack, and tune, etc. But really anytime I can be with my friends and enjoy my hobby, I'm happy.

If you HAD to start over with the same car and do it all again, what would you do differently?

Joe: I'd look for the same color first of all. I'd mod the exterior very similar but I'd probably set it up for track right away. I've caught the "race bug". I'd still show the car and have a fancy set of wheels but I'd start with racing mods.
