    Guus

    didn't your car come via the UK? All 240z's in the UK had a 3.9 R180 as standard. Maybe the guy who sold it to you changed it?

    Brett240 I think this refers to the ridiculous suggestion put forward by the FIA that the cars should drive 'slower' through turn 13 to save their tyres without a chicane having to be put in
