Hey Finno, do you happen to know the spring rates of the Meisters that you are using? I believe OEM is in the 300-375 range for front and rear. I was using 350Z H-techs for a few years and I really liked the slight drop that I had with just a bit more stiffness over OEM. I always had some traction issues going around corners above 60mph ever since I made changes to my suspension and added my wider wheels. I read that when you put wider wheels on these cars, it can get funny with the traction control kicking in. Well, that is what i used to think. Basically, I did not have the best alignment for years. It drove fine and seemed to ride well, but around corners over 60mph, my slip light kicked in everytime.

I added a new Tanabe suspension and made more changes so I needed a new alignment. This time, it was completely screwed. Had +10 on the rear on one side and -10 on the other. These people were really incompetent to say the least. I ended up taking it to Horsham and now the car drives unbelievably well. Had a proper alignment done to 350Z specs and the traction control hasn't kicked in once around a corner going above 80mph. Car handles extremely well. I've read on other sites that if our cars are dropped a 350z spec might be better since the Z is a half inch lower to begin with. Not sure if that is a good reason or not, but my car drives very well now. That being said I do have after sways, end links, and SPC camber kit so that does help too. Long story short, it may just be an alignment issue. The Nissan mechanic couldn't get my car as much into spec as Horsham did. Hope that helps.
