Hi all, I may be looking at doing 2 things on my converted early 260Z
(roadsterized, SBC /TREMEC 5 SPEED)
1. convert rear drums to discs (i'd like to keep my 4 bolt 15" wheels)

2. still running the original R180 rear end. so, possible conversion to LSD,
maybe R200 or any good HD rear that will fit with current suspension set up.
I don't care if its from infinity or a ford 9 bolt. just looking for best options to
do the job (handle 320+hp/360lb/ft). I'm getting old, so I'm looking to keep
this as inexpensive as possible.

Any suggestions or thoughts appreciated

Jack Durand

I highly suggest you call Vinny Bedini 860.355.182nine and discuss that with him. He's done more speed and disc brake conversions than I can remember. I'm surpriZed to hear you haven't encountered any problems with your stock Nissan pumpkin handling all that torque. :wink: :thumbs_up:

hasn't been a problem as I've not been driving the car probably more than 7/10's
no burn outs etc. I might want to do some auto crosses next year, which will definitely
require the upgrades.
