Do I need to take a photo with the purple and white Q45 together? Better watch out I might buy another one given the chance for the right example.

As this years event approaches I figured I'd post up some of my previous cars, not results, as a flashback to where I started. $2016 will be the Purple Q45, not sure if there will be a $2017 car yet.
$2011

$2012

$2013

$2014

$2015

I was there in 2012 but I did not make the connection that primer Miata was you.

Maybe we can work out a trade for my extra Q45 wheels... 5 speed swap for 10 wheels?!?

I agree totally!!! It had been a crazy busy summer. The car is developing well. I have done 4 drift events and an auto-x. I promise to get something up asap, until then, the random action shot!

Thanks Ross

You thinking 5 speed in the Q or the LS...? I am stoked to see how the Q does this year.

Thanks Ross

Need one for the Q45. There is a local guy parting out a 300zx but he wants $500 for everything, too much for my budget.

Transmission adapter The Performance VH Transmission adapter will allow you to get rid of that old clunky Q45 Auto gearbox and mount up a strong Z32 5 Speed box to your VH45. Compatible with the VG30DE and VG30DETT Transmissions. This is a direct bolt-on to the engine. You will have to machine your transmission to fit this adapter. Please contact us for current pricing for bell house machining.

They are a local company.

Seems pretty straight forward. This thread talks about the swap.

On another note I found the passenger seat and sunroof to the LS400

I've come to bow down to the winner of the Qs. Well done sir. Btw Asa asked if we could paint a pink and purple "Team Stampie" on our car.

Thanks, I may continue with this car but I'm not sure yet.

On the way home someone was complimenting my car on the trailer. He said, "Do you drag race that thing?" He was disappointed in my slow 15.0 but was shocked when I told him the car only set me back $1500 with all the extra parts.

Figured out my stalling no start issue as soon as I went to unload the car from the trailer. Simple grounding issue.
