Simtec Motorsports located in Farmersville, Texas specializes in tuning and building high performance Nissan and Datsun vehicles. This Datsun 240Z called “Christine” was a daily driver until the shop decided to turn it into a serious track car. Their goal was to merge the best parts of a Z32 300ZX into the 240Z. This meant the 3.0 L VG30DE V6, RS5R30A 5-speed manual transmission, fuel system, disc brakes, and rear end was carried over. The team boosted the engine’s output by installing a single turbocharger. To handle the extra power the chassis was reinforced, panels were seam welded, and the suspension was upgraded.
