I was watching episode 7 of mighty car mods 280z rb26 build last night, they said they got boxes of suspension parts and brakes from America. To my surprise, it was about the entire catalogue of parts for a z. They’ve had their share of problems with “bolt in” parts over the years, but they didn’t stop raving about the true bolt in nature of the T3 parts. The new adjustable mustache bar diff mount was used to put an r34 r200 diff in, it was definitely a nice bit of kit. It’s pretty cool to see a little company from your hometown blow up into something international.

Saw that yesterday too. Great exposure for T3 and thousands of dollars in parts for MCM.

I have a feeling their international business is going to pick up.

The entire MCM episode was a big T3 commercial. Well deserved attention.

Not many little guys left that make T3’s volume. It’s hard to have a catalog of parts.

It would have been nice if MCM had supported a smaller shop, but I imagine T3 is also a financial contributor to their series.

An idea doesn't work unless you do.

If you’re concerned about t3 forgetting the little guys, I know they haven’t yet. The hardware packet for my camber plates got lost a few months after I got them. There’s some shit you can't just go buy at the hardware store. I emailed t3 and Gabe himself responded that they didn’t have an easy way to accept payment on just the hardware but he’d be happy to send a new packet out if I gave him my address. I replied that if he wanted I could pick them up to save his time and postage money because I live like 20min away. He said he was glad to do it and not to worry about spending my gas money coming down. He was very prompt and cordial in our communication, I had my hardware the next day. I know it didn’t cost much to comp some hardware, but it showed me he has loyalty to his customers.

From what I’ve seen, they’ve has serious issues with “bolt in” parts not being bolt in. I was glad to see they had no issues with the t3 parts.

Oh yeah, I think we have all been there, that a bolt in part needs a little help.  It was just funny to see their reaction.

All bolt in parts are bolt in. Just that some require modifications not included in the purchase price.
