Here's some shots of what some
of my customers have done with their cars.
We have just completed our big
4 day asphalt rally, which we won !!!.
Your LCAs worked really well and we were able to get the car handling better than the Porsches. We created rear toe in to get stability under heavy braking, we got plenty of castor on the front for high speed stability and lots of negative camber for great cornering.
With corner weighting, the car flew over the bumps and crests and landed cleanly and smoothly.
We have the fastest normally aspirated Zed in Australia.
Thanks for your great products.
Even though I was running hardened over used slicks the Z still pulled off an entire day of consistent low 1.43 lap times. Keep in mind it would take fresh tires, a warm track and hard driving to pull that off before the new suspension set up. I was braking earlier as well.
Tire wear is AMAZING now,
I'm wearing the entire slick not just the outer edges!
As my slicks were becoming ice rubber I was really able to appreciate the suspension's control and solid precise feedback as the car would slide at high speeds.
Turn 6 is a left up hill corner that has a heavy compression zone just at the Apex then wants to throw the car to the track right edge. This has always been a turn where my suspension and chassis would flex and bottom out. Now I can fly through T6 like never ever before.
It stays glued to the track and then plants a nice slow drift to the track edge at exit. So much fun! Love that turn!
The Cork Screw is another suspension killer as the right front gets full suspension lift then comes down extremely hard. Now it's pure predictable fast controlled fun! I can enter left, slide the rear, then slide it to the right going down. The feedback and precise movement on those rear control arms give massive confidence that allows immediate feedback.
Try to imagine, 1 full hour on track pulling off same lap times. The brakes, suspension, engine, and fuel system at maximum loads and not one hick-up!
I must have showed off my new suspension and differential set up 15 times
throughout the day. People that didn't have Zs came over with their
buddies to show it off. Most people said they had a Z
years back, but never had seen anything like this suspension kit.
One guy that I usually run hard with came up to me and said what the hell is shinning under your car. He asked what on earth did you do to the rear suspension? He was blown away at the design, fit and quality.
Many people have heard Arizona Z car but their budget or Ego's prevented buying.
I had 3 corner worker stewarts come up to me at days end telling me that dam Z is amazing! the car stays so flat and stable and just plain goes fast!
I asked them to look under the car. Everyone always says holly shit this is beautiful! and Dave it is!
To sum it up, All
said and done $22k in 60 days 375 man hours later and If anyone ever asks
me what I did on my 50th Birthday I can be stricken with Alzheimer's and
a full blown case of dimentia and I will recall every last detail
of fun I had and all the people that helped make it happen!
Thank you Dave. I think now you could say this is a customer appreciation letter!!
2 more days of showing
off the Arizona Z car suspension artistry and design. Laguna Seca
202 lap miles, then the next day at Sears point raceway 233 lap miles .
Over 40 people got on their knees to see what made this Z handle at the
limits of gravity. Even wives of drivers were asked to look.
Met many past SCCA champion 240Z drivers that were in awe of the suspension. Laguna seca 120 cars. Green Hornet top 5 lap times. Sears point 90 cars. Top 3 lap times. No car with a license plate gets close even with R compound tires.
I put the suspension to ultimate load tests!

I brought your brake kit about 2-3 years ago for my the 350Z. It has worked great through out the years. I am racing in NASA Southeast in the Performance Touring class B (PTB) and the EO class in the endurance racing series. This year we will receive the championship in the PTB class and trying for the Championship in the endurance EO class , but that is going to come down to an 8 hour endurance race at Road Atlanta in December.
I was very please while racing at Carolina Motorsportspark this summer in well over 100 degree temp. and still had some brake pad left. This included a 3 hour enduro on Friday and two 50 minute sprint races on Sat and Sunday. All while racing side by side and not worrying about brake fade or failure.

seem to be holding up fine on my 240 track car"

As I mentioned on the
phone, I installed your 4 bbl manifold late last season to replace the
problematic weber 45 dcoe's...what a dramatic
difference in linear power delivery and impressive throttle response. Also, no coughing, surging or dead spots like the sidedrafts.
My carb is a 390 cfm Holley 4150HP race carb with center-hung floats.
I've won 2 events this season already with this carb setup, and wish I would have installed it long ago.
A little different just for kicks.
L-28 has my flat top pistons, cam, header, oil pan, SS valves (N42 head) , 10LB flywheel, topped off with Holly Avenger 470 CFM.
AZC radiator will keep it all nice and cool.
Of course it's got the full Billet treatment.
Traction via R-200 3.90 LSD
6-piston calipers will guarantee stopping performance.
Clean and simple dash is a good match for the rest of the car.
This is the pile of junk we started with a few months back! Previous owner
was "going to fix it up"
Clifton Ragland's 7MGTE POWERED 240Z
2005 winner best modified 240Z
600 HORSEPOWER AT THE WHEELS!
Clifton said the stock brakes were good for only 1 stop from 150MPH to zero before they went up in smoke.
AZC RADIATOR COOLS 600 HP ON 100+ DEGREE DAYS IN PHOENIX!
NICELY DONE INSTALL ON THE AZC CAMBER PLATES. Also has my coil-overs, LSD Brace kit, 5-lug brakes, Billet front arms etc.
Clifton did all his own paint
and body work , motor swap fabrication, wiring, suspension/brakes install
etc. Not bad for an amateur !
Here's Joe Riolo's GT2 car
Dave Kipperman's LS1 powered 240Z, Dave is a hardcore racer and another long time customer.

"The brakes work fantastic on the track. Thanks again."
Bill Coffey pullin G's in the corner
"All of the suspension/brake/other
components I have bought from you over the years continue to perform very
well on my car. Good stuff."
"According to my most recent dragstrip time 9.20 @ 145mph roughly
"The rear brake kit really did the trick, allowing me to foot-brake to 4500 rpm's before the car launches. I was unable to hold it at the line with the old stock drum setup. It also gives me a lot more confidence being able to slow the car down at the other end of the track" Mike G.
Here are some pics of my 240.
its dialed in and all sorted out. Your stuff works like magic. I've done
a few trackdays & ran up on some EVOs,WRXs&assorted $30,000 "newer"cars.
My engine is fairly tame and a turbo transplant is in the works so I can push "em on the longer straights. Even on the street I drive it real hard and it responds well in any conditions.
Thanks again for all of your help and technical support,
2004 BEST OF SHOW WEST
