I have NEVER gone to WOT to rev match, and I've done many track miles in cars and on bikes.

Did you install some type of switch to let the car know it's in first? From the factory, the 350Z has no 1st gear position switch, only neutral and reverse position switches.

Well, yeah. Two step is engaged by the clutch switch. If the clutch is depressed, it won't rev over 4500 rpm. If you're not at the 1/4 mile track, why do you need a 2-step? If you HAVE to have a...

Oh, I also can't stand the robo-rev matching. I hated having to turn it and traction control off every time I started the car. I prefer to rev match on my own.

My opinion... Get it checked out. Don't bother with the Kbb value. It's cheap enough, that if it checks out and you like it... Get it. The 350Z Nismo is, IMO, the best Z. Better than the 370 Nismo.

Like I said, dual use. Nissan actually advises techs to use this to push off stuck rotors. They even tell us to use hand tools only, no power tools, so you don't snap the head off the bolt.

Nope. You can toss it. Just remember, the bolt is an 8mm x 1.5 in case you ever need to push the rotor off.

It's to push the rotor off if it rusts to the hub. Back the bolt out, remove the spacer and run the bolt back in. The spacer is there to allow you to "store" the bolt there.

Funny you say that. When I had my Trailblazer SS, people wanted hundreds for the factory tow receiver cover. They're no longer made and supposedly pretty rare. Meh.

As stated... NVH damper. Yes, it's supposed to wobble. If your Z is just a daily driver, leave it alone. If you're building a track car, take it off.

Don't go to the dealer until you find the fuses. They are there. One is for switched power to the ECM one is for the ECM memory. Check 10A fuse #1 (in cab) and 15A fuse #77 in the IPDM.
