I FINALLY Drifted My DIRT CHEAP Nissan 350z *Coilover Install*

I bought a 2003 Nissan 350Z for $1,500 and decided to turn it into my drift car. On the first outing we didn't have any luck sliding it around, but it's much better today. A new set of coilovers and disabling traction control made it a very different car. All it needs now is raised up some more, the diff welded, and an alignment!

RIP to my beloved shredded chicken burrito. I bought a new 350 in 03 and the car was kind of junk right from the factory. I wouldn't mind having one now for 3k vs the 30k I paid for it. Is this one an Enthusiast/Performance trim?

Damn, Taco Bell! R.I.P. Mexican Pizza, XXL Burritos, Tostadas, etc. They claim they are saving money on packaging, since those tostadas and pizzas come in a small box. I miss the grilled stuffed burritos and the Frito burritos.

I just installed maxpeedingrods coilovers on my wrx, that they sent me for a review. I had the opposite problem where my rear coilovers were extremely too long and raise my back end 2" at the lowest setting. I don't think they actually test their products at all.
The worst coilovers you could've bought lol should have watched my upload big mistake. Bouncy in the rear..

Dude you worked wayyyyy too hard on that front install. Next time just unbolt the lower control arm from the sub frame. It will let the arm drop down enough to get the coilover out and in. No messing around with the upper arms,no swaybar link to remove. I have done It multiple times by just dropping the lower control arm. Also just pull vdc fuse.

Very cool the coil over company reached out to you and hooked you up as well as giving your viewers a discount! That says something about that company. Anti seize is BS. It DOES NOT work.

This is a perfect example of if you gotta have a cheap project car, buy one that is 100% stock or as close to it as possible. Even if it doesn't run. I can't imagine what a PITA this thing is to work on considering some idiot touched almost every bolt on it and its a rusty Kansas car.

Traction control staying on was a nightmare on my Z. For drag racing, I had to wire up a a switch to cut the stop lamp fuse because TCS kicks in when you hold gas and brake to do a standing burnout, but if you leave the fuse pulled you get the TCS/SLIP lights while driving...of course.

You got it right about Taco Bell! Damn! Everything I used to order is history! I always got a 7 layer and 4 shredded chicken quesadilla melts. I was pissed when they shitcanned my 7 layer. So I got guacamole on a 5 layer (not anyway near the same) but what can you do? But now they shitcanned my shredded chicken quesadilla melts. Fuck Taco Bell! They ain't got anything left that I like!

JR. You need to put ECU pin 101 on a switch. The FSM calls it the brake light switch, it also happens to trigger the traction control. That should allow you to keep ABS and all the other goodies and completely defeat TCS.

Well, time to piss JR, and 266k people off, but I feel it needs to be said. Please stop doing everything "half-ass". You have access to tools, parts, and "Ninja's" that many people would kill for, but it seems that every video, and nearly every project has something like the frozen bushing. Or mangling a fuse to turn off traction control when you have a top-end Autel. Maybe it is just me, but I think you either do something right, or you don't do it at all ... ESPECIALLY when you don't have to worry about having the right tools, or the right parts, ect.

@WatchJRGo So, just to clarify a little. This comment came after watching 2 or 3 other 'Tubers "half-ass" their projects, and this one ended up being the one that drew the negative comment. But, even still, while I am surprised it cannot be tuned out, it does make sense about regulations. But, There are ways to get around the ABS (VDC) that would be a little more "right". You have shown time and again to have some amazing skills with wiring. Why not install a bypass switch? Same result as pulling the fuse, but much more "professional". And again, some of the ire here may have been misdirected, and for that, I apologize. But one of the things that brought me to your channel was they way you did things right, even on a car as odd as the old EXP and Shelby Rampage. Don't let that level of professionalism fade away as time goes by.

There’s no way to tune out abs... that would be federally illegal. Fuses are $1 why not cut it? 🍻

Hi John Ross you ever heard the old expression if you can't do it right don't do it at all??? Sometimes it's better to wait and do it right then to do it half-assed which seems to be going on quite a bit. Sorry about just one more failure! Hope things go better in the future. Stay safe stay well and as always God bless

My god that suspension is all wrong, I think the manufacturer needs some more r&d on this, if you want to enjoy the car that's just not going to work. Coilovers are ok on track but seriously they are just junk. Perfectly matched springs and dampers are all a true enthusiast would want. Harder work probably but when it's worth it....oh yeah, that's right sorry....
