I'm glad you posted that here. I remember reading this 'elsewhere' and thought it was a pretty decent guide to focusing our attention. Good call

And welcome.

Thanks for feedback everyone!

Yes, this post was on my350z.com for over a year but I thought since I was also visiting this site now, maybe some members here have never seen it.

I have thought of revising the post to include products like APS TT etc but I think those interested in those type of products should be doing addtional research and would learn about those things that way. Besides, I dont want to go back and edit it every month if I can help it.

I got some new articles coming up in the magazine and when I can discuss them, I will. Just know that I am working on things that I think most Z owners would like to know if given enough time to do the foot work themselves. My reason to write at SportZ is with that goal in mind...

Thanks, Man.

I just bought a 2005 Track Ed., and am very tentative about what mods I should start with. I really like how you stated I should learn to drive the car stock before adding any performance upgrades. Will definately be looking forward to future posts from you.
