    350z vs WRX

    Just cruising around town and I happen to pull up next to a new 350z. I missed the launch, but continued to hang with him till about 85, then I was screwed. Is this pretty common or was this just a fluke. I am completly stock except for my Wasgate Arm mod!!!! Oh... and I have no stickers for extra hp.

    If you missed the launch, I dont see why you hung with him to 85. Even with a good launch, soon after 60 you would probably start to lose. not saying it didnt happen, but probably a fluke or bad driving on his part.

    Sounds like my races with my brothers 350Z. I have been able to get up to 4 car lengths on him with a good launch but by 85mph I am toast.

    I am 100% stock and good until 85- 90mph from a dig (IF I get a good launch). Bad launch equals trying to play catch up which ain't gonna happen if they get the jump on you.

    Now I ran against an AT 350z from a 60mph roll and was fine up till about 115 or so and then he started to creep on me, gaining momentun till we shut it down at 125 or so and he was maybe 2.5-3 lengths up on me.. That didnt surprise me though. My AT Eclispe Turbo had trouble with V6 mustangs. Damn AT's!

    From my experience, I raced a friend of mine a stock 350Z. We did a highway speed run, starting at 60mph. I was able to hang in there until I hit 80-90 mph, and by the time I shift 4th, he's pulling away. That night, I wished I had more up top... but I still love my WRX.
    I might be back in the market for the new STI sedan!

    with a good launch you will take 1 til 85-90 ( i launch good) after that the z will catch up and walk away.. on a weak launch you will hang til about 60, then its lights out, although im just speculating on the weak launch, iv never rolled off the line against the 3 zs ive raced from a dig

    My good friend has a 6speed 350Z, realistically i highly doubt my stock 05 wrx would keep up.... but i dont know and dont plan on finding out untill we hit up the track.

    has alot to do with the drivers of each car also, and driving conditions, keep that in mind... results are not always repeatable and will sumtimes have discrepancies
