I saw SharX59 thread and it inspired me to finally make a recap of the last 3 years with my car and updates in the future.

Car is a 2007 350z base.

bought it September 2009 >>> my original hello thread https://my350z.com/forum/new-owners/...w-z-owner.html

The first day I had the car
<a href="http://s33.beta.photobucket.com/user/Madguitarist323/media/firstday.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d99/Madguitarist323/firstday.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"/></a>
When I first bought the car I wanted to get Tein basics, work meisters, an exhaust, test pipes, tune and be done with it...that didnt work out. As soon as I started reading up on the car that's when my fascination started going crazy with what I could make the car.

First mods - Tein S techs/ichiba v2 25mm spacers all around
<a href="http://s33.beta.photobucket.com/user/Madguitarist323/media/3-1.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d99/Madguitarist323/3-1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"/></a>

<a href="http://s33.beta.photobucket.com/user/Madguitarist323/media/this-1.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d99/Madguitarist323/this-1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"/></a>

<a href="http://s33.beta.photobucket.com/user/Madguitarist323/media/fc94dc84.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d99/Madguitarist323/fc94dc84.jpg" border="0" alt="Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App"/></a>


it stayed like that for a few months and then I got bored one day so my friend and I rattle canned the wheels grey.

<a href="http://s33.beta.photobucket.com/user/Madguitarist323/media/196cc70e.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d99/Madguitarist323/196cc70e.jpg" border="0" alt="Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App"/></a>

after owning the car for a while at this point I thought it would be time for some bolt ons.

<a href="http://s33.beta.photobucket.com/user/Madguitarist323/media/dd369111.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d99/Madguitarist323/dd369111.jpg" border="0" alt="Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App"/></a>

<a href="http://s33.beta.photobucket.com/user/Madguitarist323/media/dd986865.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d99/Madguitarist323/dd986865.jpg" border="0" alt="Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App"/></a>

now at this point I loved the car, I knew I wanted to do some sort of motorsports, but what?

tried drag racing
<a href="http://s33.beta.photobucket.com/user/Madguitarist323/media/a1c3f01a.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d99/Madguitarist323/a1c3f01a.jpg" border="0" alt="Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App"/></a>
wasnt really for me.

tried autox
<a href="http://s33.beta.photobucket.com/user/Madguitarist323/media/autox.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d99/Madguitarist323/autox.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"/></a>

it was pretty fun for me then. At my third AUTOX event I was working the course and got hit by a car that lost control. I was pretty out of motorsports for a little bit after that I wouldnt even go gokarting.

6 months later I ended up ordering some wheels
<a href="http://s33.beta.photobucket.com/user/Madguitarist323/media/376fbca3.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d99/Madguitarist323/376fbca3.jpg" border="0" alt="Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App"/></a>

July 2011 I went to my first HPDE
<a href="http://s33.beta.photobucket.com/user/Madguitarist323/media/4677799a.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d99/Madguitarist323/4677799a.jpg" border="0" alt="Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App"/></a>
<a href="http://s33.beta.photobucket.com/user/Madguitarist323/media/thunderhillfirsttime.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d99/Madguitarist323/thunderhillfirsttime.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"/></a>

after that it was game over, I fell in love with road racing. No more random mods at this point, I wanted to focus all my time, effort, and mods towards what could make me faster on a road course.

ended up getting an amuse bumper
<a href="http://s33.beta.photobucket.com/user/Madguitarist323/media/1e67fe28.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d99/Madguitarist323/1e67fe28.jpg" border="0" alt="Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App"/></a>
then 3 track events later I went off 3 times in 3 sessions and broke it!

ended up going back OEM bumper.

ended up dropping some cash on one of these things
<a href="http://s33.beta.photobucket.com/user/Madguitarist323/media/2edf632b.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d99/Madguitarist323/2edf632b.jpg" border="0" alt="Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App"/></a>

TIREEESSS!!!
<a href="http://s33.beta.photobucket.com/user/Madguitarist323/media/D1A6E561-A9EF-4B5D-8E18-8E38C9EE01CA-21573-00000D76FC44E8C8.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d99/Madguitarist323/D1A6E561-A9EF-4B5D-8E18-8E38C9EE01CA-21573-00000D76FC44E8C8.jpg" border="0" alt="Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App"/></a>


so that pretty much brings me up to 2012. At this point im just tracking the car as much as I am able to, I would like to eventually go SPEC Z in about 5 years. I dont really have a set path other then putting stuff on that will make me go faster, oh and seat time!

My last event - Buttonwillow Raceway Park - 13CW
<a href="http://s33.beta.photobucket.com/user/Madguitarist323/media/backround-1.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d99/Madguitarist323/backround-1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"/></a>


wish list - id like to get a 4 point roll bar, fixed back seat, and harness sometime in the next 6 months, not only a safety thing but staying in place in corners really helps.

I will keep the thread updates as I do new things to the car, this winter the car is getting a few new upgrades, im pretty excited about it!
