We don’t always cover motorsports here at TTAC, but when we do, we make sure it’s grassroots. Following the Spec Miata, Spec E30 and Spec Focus race series, NASA and Nissan have partnered to create a Spec Z series for the 2003 to 2008 350Z coupes that were so popular earlier in the decade.
Modifications to the cars are limited to a Nismo catback, Nismo LSD, Nismo Flywheel and a Spec suspension kit featuring new shocks, springs, coilover sleeves, anti-roll bars and BF Goodrich R1 tires. Horsepower will be limited to 258 wheel horsepower for the 03-04 cars, 265 for the 05-06 cars and 275 for the 08 cars. Contingency cash will be available for both the regional and national levels.
