SR20DET Swapped ’70 Datsun 240Z,

a while back, i had a shoot for a magazine though the car was not approved by the publisher. told me they have already ran the JDM issue for the content. so, decided to update the pics on my blog.

ちょっと前に雑誌の撮影があったんだけど、残念ながらボツに。日本車の特集もう終わっちゃったんだよねぇーとの事で。ってわけでせっかく撮影したんだし、ブログにアップしようと思いまして。

ゴメンなさいレイ君、レイ君パパ。週末の時間とってもらったのにこんな結果になってしまって。

このお礼は必ずッ!!

1970 Datsun 240Z, its been swapped out with the SR20DET (red top) motor.

70年式ダットサン240Z。SR20DET(赤ヘッド)を換装済みです。

because the engine mount behind the front strut bar, this swapped Z becomes a mid-ship layout, more toward 50:50 balance of the body. while people say the body of this 240Z is a front-heavy vehicle, this swap will improve the drive-ability. also weight reduction compared to the L motor. more power or more total balance? i will say more total balance.

換装されたエンジンがフロントのストラットより後方に位置するため、フロントミッドシップレイアウトを可能に。より50:50の重量配分に近くなりました。フロントヘビーと言われるこのZに軽量なSRエンジンは持って来いのチューニングメニューの一つでは。走りもキビキビいけるし。高出力とバランスだったらどっち?やっぱトータルバランスでしょう。
