    Josh's package, albeit compact, is worth every penny.

    I cannot remember when was the last time I went to this event. I should consider coming along and see old friends.

    All RWD cars attending must do mandatory burnouts as part of the entry fee.

    My sti can probably do a better burnout than the Mustang but if I take the later, you bet your ass I'm going to try.

    Although, the Mustang makes great donut holes, so maybe I'll go with that instead.

    Alright.. I've been around here for i think 9 years... time to join in the fun. Count me in Josh! (2 total... possibly a couple dogs as well.)

    This is also the weekend that REI/Subaru is doing an event too. I'll definitely be going there Friday! Here's the link for anyone else interested.

    @tangledupinblu I have been pushing this event on the Mtnroo MN group but I told them to create an account on here and sign up on here. Hoping to get some more lifted subies on the cruise this year!

    To be fair, the 350Z only racked up about 200 dollars in actual repairs over it's lifetime. I had crank angle sensor die and had to replace it. If I had kept the 350z another year, it likely would have had this problem as well.
    Starting with the 350Z and carried on to the 370z, Nissan decided to do a master/slave cylinder for the clutch. The slave cylinder in this case is actually mounted inside the bellhousing of the transmission. It is also very prone to hairline cracking. When this happens, every time you press down on the clutch pedal, it spritzes a little bit of clutch fluid (brake fluid) inside the bellhousing where your clutch and flywheel are spinning around. Brake fluid is very corrosive. The symptoms of this occurring are that your clutch pedal gets mushy until it eventually drops to the floor and wont engage. You can mask this catastrophe by filling your clutch reservoir with more fluid every 1000-2000 miles or so, if you are just looking to mask the issue. But eventually the slave cylinder crack gets big enough that you are just pissing brake fluid into the bellhousing at a rate that makes it unsustainable, or your clutch and flywheel get enough corrosion to no longer work.
    In my case, if the dealer I bought it from didn't try to cover it up by topping off the clutch fluid, this likely would have cost me about 300 bucks to fix, as the parts and labor on a slave cylinder is usually about that much. However, since they covered it up, and I put 2000 miles of heat cycling and sprayed brake fluid all over my clutch and flywheel, you end up having to replace the whole system. I can attest to you that this will cost $3700 if you just go to a dealership and get parts/labor there.
    I had them look for any additional issues that might be coming down the pipe, because I don't want to do this again any time soon. So they fixed a clicking axle, gave it an alignment, and did the oilchange that was due.
    So yeah, that is my first Z related issue that is truely more than just maintenance and wear/tear since I had to swap in a 50 dollar crank sensor, and I bought both cam angle sensors at the same time I did it, just so I wouldn't have troubleshoot anything, hence the "$200" mentioned earlier.

    As for Steph's Infiniti, there's been some issues with wheel bearings, brake caliper seized, and axles that need replacement. Probably a couple grand over 5 years. Again, mostly just wear and tear items on what is now an 11 year old car.

    The 350Z only gave me one real scare during my time with it, and it turned out to just be bad gas leftover from winter. A can of seafoam took care of it.

    I'm hoping that was under warranty and not out of pocket.

    Every manufacturer has their own issues. Quite often it seems like it is when they get "cute" with a design or engineering solution or save a few pennies on the quality of a part. More of these failures need to happen in the warranty period and bite them hard in the a$$.
