1986 300zx non turbo turns over but won't start

It has 270k miles, raced it one night at a monster jam show jumping it 42 times, car started after the race and loaded itself on the trailer but when i unloaded it the next day it was running rough, falling on it's face when pressing accelerator, then wouldn't start at all, could this be a timing issue?

Sounds like you have problems with the turbo as thee is a bearing there and you said it starts rattling once the turbo kicks in. There is one other thing, you may have internal engine damage as like you said, only 500 miles and some of that was racing. May not have been broken in properly. I know I was told you need to break an engine in for 500 - 1000 miles then change the oil. I hope this is not the case for you though.

I think it is i will probably have to pull the timing belt, it sounds like it probably skipped due to the serpentine belt cords wrapped around something under the timing belt cover, any other suggestions on alternate causes before I start pulling the brand new timing belt?12

Car will turn over but will not start without putting jumper cables to it like it is out of gas . how can i fix this.

Have the charging system, battery and the starter checked. If the battery is weak it won't be able to supply enough power to turn the engine over and power the other electronics at the same time. The same is true if the starter draws too much power. When you jump it you are giving enough power to overcome the problem, this will come to the point that it won't start at all.

Shut the car off, tried to start it later but it would not start. getting fuel and spark. it is a 2.0 non turbo engine. my only thought is that it may have jumped time. what do you think it could be?

you can test if the time is jumped, just move the distributor a little turning it to the left. and try to start. or change the rotor and the chip on your distributor.,......

or before that check your air intake box, may be the sensor that make open and close to controlled the air.

jumped time will be another option, . but i will be not %100 sure I need to revise the car my self to give u a exact cause,.
