Is hitting the race track the best way to spend a weekend? We sure think so!
So does the proud Owner of this week’s featured build, Mike Gruizinga. Mike often spends his weekends at local circuit Gingerman Raceway, often with this extremely tidy 300ZX.
“I do Lemons racing with another car so this is my track toy. I use it for street driving as well as HPDE stuff.” Mike adds.
The 1984 Nissan 300zx has been rebuilt from ground up to achieve its current state.
Originally purchased for $500 over 10 years ago, Mike has since rebuilt every aspect, painted it, and swapped in an s13 rear subframe. The suspension also has S13 aftermarket parts adapted to suit and fitted. The wheels are Algernon Intelesse and the rear over fenders are rare fiberglass parts.
The engine, a VG30ET, has custom longtube headers, cams, and intake.
The complete package is controlled by a Link Xtreme ECU which has recently been installed.
Tuned by one of the best in the business, Whalens Speed R & D, you can bet the car runs smooth and maximises the Xtreme ECU.
Mike adds: “I’m using a G4+ Xtreme ECU and I love it. The Motorsport shifting is my favorite feature, it is so much fun on track. We have two-step enabled and also working on closed loop boost control.”
“Then, I really want to put a Link/AiM MXS dash in this Winter, plus a can lambda.”
Thanks for sharing your car with us Mike. We love seeing builds like this getting to show what they are capable of on a circuit!
