Mighty Beanz

Mighty Beanz are toys manufactured by Moose Enterprises, a corporation headquartered in Melbourne, Australia.

An individual Mighty Bean is a three dimensional ovaloid with small flat circular ends on either side, rather like a large plastic capsule, approximately one inch long. These are frequently coloured with bright colours, and many of them bear cartoon likenesses of Marvel superheroes or other licensed characters. The Moose version of the toy was launched in 2003; similar toys have existed for years before.

The toys are hollow and contains a small, dense spheroid inside, which is not quite as long in diameter as the inside of the mighty bean to allow for movement. The Mighty Bean can stand up on either end because the spheroid is pulled over the centre by gravity. This pulls the centre of mass of the Mighty Bean over its tiny base, making it impossible for the Mighty Bean to fall down.

When a Mighty Bean is placed on a slant, instead of simply sliding down, the Mighty Bean falls on its side, and the spheroid rolls down and up the other end. In doing this, the ball rolls slightly up the other side of the Mighty Bean, causing the centre of mass to shift away from the Mighty Bean's long base, making it fall over. It stands vertically for a moment, and repeats the process.

Good Housekeeping warns that since these beans are small objects named after a foodstuff, they may represent a choking hazard to toddlers.

Good Housekeeping warns that since these beans are small objects named after a foodstuff, they may represent a choking hazard to toddlers. He was ranked as the #1 Factory Driver for Nissan for 7 years, as well as two IMSA GTS Driving Championships and two IMSA GTS Manufacturer's Championships. It stands vertically for a moment, and repeats the process. From 1990 to 1995, the 300ZX (Z32), who was campaigned by Clayton Cunningham Racing was championed by Steve Millen in the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) and its GT and GTS classes. In doing this, the ball rolls slightly up the other side of the Mighty Bean, causing the centre of mass to shift away from the Mighty Bean's long base, making it fall over. The VG30ET was making upwards of 800HP, with a power band that extended from 4000 to 9000 RPM. When a Mighty Bean is placed on a slant, instead of simply sliding down, the Mighty Bean falls on its side, and the spheroid rolls down and up the other end. The new Electramotive (later to become NPTI) chassis was easier to work on, more robust and technically superior to the T810.

This pulls the centre of mass of the Mighty Bean over its tiny base, making it impossible for the Mighty Bean to fall down. Additional factory endorcement, combined with a new chassis, gearbox and more reliable Good Year tires contributed to the team's success. The Mighty Bean can stand up on either end because the spheroid is pulled over the centre by gravity. From 1988 to 1989, the Nissan GTP ZX-Turbo dominated in IMSA GTP racing. The toys are hollow and contains a small, dense spheroid inside, which is not quite as long in diameter as the inside of the mighty bean to allow for movement. A series of crashes attributed to tire blowouts combined with difficulty of working on the T810 chassis caused less than stellar performance both seasons. The Moose version of the toy was launched in 2003; similar toys have existed for years before. From 1985 to 1987, the Electramotive-developed GTP ZX-Turbo was raced in the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) GTP class using a Lola T810 Chassis and a production-based VG30ET engine.

These are frequently coloured with bright colours, and many of them bear cartoon likenesses of Marvel superheroes or other licensed characters. The car scored their only Trans Am win in 1986 at Lyme Rock by Paul Newman for Bob Sharp Racing. An individual Mighty Bean is a three dimensional ovaloid with small flat circular ends on either side, rather like a large plastic capsule, approximately one inch long. In 1984 to 1985 showroom stock racing, the 300ZX (Z31) was a potent competitor and captured wins on numerous occasions. Mighty Beanz are toys manufactured by Moose Enterprises, a corporation headquartered in Melbourne, Australia. From the year it was introduced, it won many comparison tests against similar Japanese sports cars such as the Mitsubishi 3000GT/Dodge Stealth and the Mazda RX-7, as well as the Chevrolet Corvette and the Porsche 968. It was critically acclaimed by many magazines as being a complete turnaround from the Z31, which many critics felt was a sloppy-handling GT, far from the agile, sporty 240Z of years past.

The Z32 Turbo was also Motor Trend's Import Car of the Year for 1990. The Z32 300ZX Turbo was on Car and Driver magazine's annual Ten Best list every year it was available, from 1990 through 1996. Production of the Z32 continued in Japan until 1999 through a major redesign in 1998, in naturally aspirated 2-seater, 2+2 seater, and "R" versions, which were 2+2 twin turbo models (as pictured above). The price of a Twin Turbo 300ZX rose to US $45,000 that year, too high for many consumers and far from the US $27,000 price it had started with.

The Z32 was discontinued in 1996 in North America due to dwindling sales figures, heightened smog regulations, and rising production costs. These cars had features such as flamboyant bodywork and paint and extensive performance upgrades, resulting in 460 bhp (343 kW) 1991 edition and 365 bhp (272 kW) 1995 edition. In 1991, as well as in 1995 for the Z's 25th anniversary, Steve Millen, a famous race-car driver from New Zealand, built a limited-edition run of 300 tuned 300ZXs, known as the SMZ, through his company Stillen. Twin Turbo models featured electronically adjustable shock absorbers, and Nissan's all-wheel-steering system SUPER HICAS (Super High Capacity Actively Controlled Suspension), which could turn the rear wheels a full two degrees at speed.

The platform was new, with a longer 97-in wheelbase and sophisticated multi-link suspension front and rear. One major difference between the VG30E(T) in the Z31 and the VG30DE(TT) placed in the Z32 was the dual overhead cam design and variable valve timing system (which was removed in 1996 to meet smog regulation). It also featured larger 245/45-16 and 16x8.5 wheels in the back as opposed to the 225/50-16 tires in front and on the NA version. They also came with the requisite "Twin Turbo" badging in the rear and a subtle tail spoiler, which was enlarged and redesigned in 1994.

The twin-turbo Z32s can be spotted with a different front bumper featuring three vents for supplying air to the dual intercoolers, as opposed to the naturally aspirated (NA) models. Twin Turbo models were not offered as a 2+2 or convertible in the United States. A naturally aspirated convertible model was also introduced in 1993. It featured a naturally aspirated engine rated at 222 hp, and a top-of-the-line Twin-Turbo version rated at 300 hp (224 kW) at 9.5 lbf/inĀ² (66 kPa) of boost through two intercoolers.

The Z32 was a complete redesign. Nissan replaced this very successful car with an upgraded (and much more expensive) version in 1990, dubbed the Z32 but also called 300ZX because it kept the same 3.0L of displacement. The Z31 was in production until 1989 and sold more cars than any other Z car made to date. The Z31 was slightly restyled in 1987 due to its quickly aging design.

There were no stellar differences setting the SS apart from a regular 1988 model 300ZX Turbo except for the pearl white paint, front air dam, wheels, suspension and a viscous limited-slip differential in place of the clutch type. In 1988 Nissan released a pearl white 300ZX "Shiro Special" (AKA SS) with stiffer springs, matched shocks and no available options. In 1984, the 300ZX 50th Anniversary Edition was released in celebration of the company's 50th anniversary. There were also two special models produced.

All turbo charged models featured 3-way electronically adjustable shock absorbers. The chassis remained somewhat similar to the 280ZX, with the same 91.3 in (2319 mm) wheelbase and MacPherson strut/trailing arm independent suspension, however the 300ZX both handled and accelerated better than the 280ZX it replaced. In Japan, the turbo version became the highest horsepower available in a consumer vehicle on the JDM market. Later versions of the same engines were rated at 165 and 205 horsepower.

It offered V6 engines (the earilier Z-cars were all powered with an I6) for the first time in the Z chassis: a naturally-aspirated VG30E and turbocharged VG30ET, which initially produced 160 and 200 horsepower (127 and 172 kW), respectively. After 1984, the 300ZX was sold under the Nissan name. The Z31 chassis designation was first introduced in 1983 as a 1984 model and the third-generation Datsun Z-car. .

It comprises the third and fourth generations of Nissan's Z-car line-up, respectively given the chassis designations Z31 and Z32. The Nissan 300ZX, also known as the Nissan Fairlady Z is a sports car produced by Nissan Motor Company.
