We’ve long wondered why no one has built an S30 Z drift machine yet. It’s light, it’s RWD, it’s simple to work on. Parts, whether junkyard special, aftermarket, or reproduction, are plentiful and can be scavenged from a whole host of later-model Nissans. There are enough non-mint 240Z/260Z/280Zs out there that you wouldn’t feel bad about cutting one up (or putting it in a wall). Plus, you’ll have the best looking puck on the track.
Well, now a Hungarian is beating us to the punch. Nino Karotta is putting together a Datsun 260Z slider using an S13 chassis and a 350Z V6 as motivation. You can read all about his build on Driftworks.
