PDM Racing Nissan 240SX - Part 2

     Over the next few years the black 240SX has gone through many changes including two more tire/rim combinations, different brake options, custom exhaust systems, headers, pulleys and rear gear changes. Now 2005, we stepped up the modifications to the black hatch by adding a turbo to a fully built race motor! See page 3 for the build-up.

    Front end is equipped with custom made PDM T.C. Rods that replace the bushing with 5/8" NMB Stainless/Teflon rod ends. This allows adjustable positive caster with zero toe-in change under hard braking.

    This is the mandrel-bent, tig welded PDM Custom 3 inch Cold Air Intake. The intake drops down in the front fender area, where it employs a 5 inch K&N cone filter inhaling fresh cold air.

    Special Samco silicone 4 Bar neck-down hose was used on the MAS, while Aeroquip stainless hoses and fittings provide the finishing touch.

    In these shots, the rear wing used is a Racing Beat piece made for the third generation RX7. It was adapted to fit on the rear lid of the 240SX. (the car currently sports a Megan Carbon Fibre GT Wing.)

    This is the PDM exhaust before installation on the car. The beefy exhaust is crafted out of 2.5 inch 304 stainless steel and is much straighter than the stock unit.

     This is how the car looked in 1997 wearing ARE Style 50 rims wrapped in BFG R1's. Don lent out his car to many people throughout the 1997 autocross season, and it won a set of R1 tires for novice driver Stan Mickalak.

    This was the car's last setup during fall/winter 1999. The TSW Sportline 5 spoke wheels are wrapped with MXX3 Pilot tires. Stay tuned for more current pictures as the car is being finished up with complete new body, spoilers and new paint!

    Here's the mighty 300ZX front brake upgrade installed. This upgrade will make an unbelieveable difference in your 240's braking abilities.

 
Front And once again, Don has changed his car around again, since this feature was first posted to the website.  Early last year, the car was stripped down to bare metal, and new super black base/clear was applied, with the new PDM front underspoiler, rear Bomex Wangan wing, and new PDM sideskirts.  Also sporting new coil overs for a very low stance, shod with Yokohama A032R’s on Work rims.
Stance The car now sits almost 1.5 inches lower than before, and sports a very aggressive stance with the rims pushed out to the bodyedge, with the very aggressive looking rim/tire combo.
Underspoiler Note the super shiny paint, and killer front underspoiler !
Cornerweighing Cornerweighing the 240SX prior to race day, showing the rear Blitz Nurspec exhaust,
and unique A032R tire tread.
Sparco Seats The new Sparco Pro 2000 race seats, custom mounted on the stock sliders, along with the camlok 5 point race belts.
