    Default Flat Tops?

    Check these out with the caption "I am told they are the ones people want."

    This actually should go under the jokes section.

    If anyone actually bids on them the should be made to wear them as ear-rings (the Z version of a dunce hat ).

    Or to dangle them from their testicles!

    Maybe THAT would teach them a lesson about how "they are the ones people want."

    I think this person is confusing flat top pistons with flat top carbs. However, if someone wants to show their car in a stock category and has a '73 240 or 260Z at least they can get a spare set of carbs cheap. Because they are probably going to need all the spares they can get to keep the thing running.

    Then again, all it takes is one person to figure them out and win a race with them and everyone would probably start buying them up! My friend has a '73 with them and it still runs well. I don't think I would stay with them because there is not as much info or parts available. Especially if engine modifications are planned.

    Default Flat top desire

    I was a bit confused during a Z introduction phase. My L-4 and A motors knowledge is that "flat Tops" "Tuna Cans" were JDM "GX" SU's and highly desirable for your L-18 or A-14 GX mighty mouse

    But, those were very different than these "Hitachis", "Flattops", "boat anchors" "Smog demons" Whatever
