Behind the engine sits a five-speed manual from a Nissan Z32 TT with a South Bend clutch using a GForce adapter and flywheel. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a Nissan S13 rear end with a Inifniti Q45 limited-slip differential.

The car rides on SPL control arms, Powertrix adjustable coilovers, and adjustable tension rods. Stopping will be improved thanks to Brembo 17Z six-piston calipers from a Porsche Cayenne with 350Z two-piece rotors.
