    E36 M3 vs Maxima

    Cruisin up rt 12 on the way to Wisconsin. older m3 gets a light with me. his buddy driving a 2.5 Rs is behind him, revving like a highschooler. i chuckle and both the m3 owner agree to run

    Light goes green. easy launch, no wheel spin.. m3 pulls 2 cars to 60. The VQ matched the m3's pace from there to 100 when we both called it quits. It was a loss that put a smile on my face.

    my japanese buick is just as mean from 60 up as the last generation m3 coupe.

    He had some nice rims, exhaust and a few other minor mods. id love to have one...

    Nice run. I suppose I'm a little surprised at you keeping up at higher speeds, but the VQ is a quality motor for sure

    good run. I am also suprised to kept up so well. Do you know if the M3 was auto or manual? They run mid to low 14's and trap at about 100mph. Either way, good run and get modding

    im auto, he was manual. we both had a casual launch with no wheelspin. gearing was a big advantage for him. 2nd gear takes me to 75mph not to mention my sponge soft shifts...

    i for sure thought he would keep pulling, but the VQ and long gears let me see his confused face in his mirror the whole time...

    it would have been a squeeker from 50 roll
