    It happens, but 350s are pretty slow. I smash on them, but they pick on me 1st so it's a good feeling when they disappear in your rear view.

    350's are slow, they only look good in the rearview, sorry but they really are not fast at all.

    My fiance and I are going to get a G35 Sedan in a couple of years. I had her test drive a 350Z since it has the same engine/tranny. The dealer let us take it out alone. She really romped on it, and all she could say was how it wasn't fast enough, especially compared to my Cobb Stage 2+ WRX. She went back to the dealer and told him that the 350 was slow. He thought she was crazy, but she just said that she was used to something faster and pointed at my WRX. I love that woman!

    cobb stage 2 wrx and 350z are pretty much the same speed(unless its auto). Its just the 350z has linear torque so the kick in of a turbo car feels alot faster.

    Exactly. My old WRX at stage 2 felt faster than my G35 because of the turbo rush, but the quarter mile traps were probably pretty comparable. A stage 2 WRX might get a better ET with a good driver, due to the better launch.

    I would be inclined to say that a cobb stage II wrx would get a better 1/4 time then a 350Z with an average driver. I think really good drivers get the cobb stage II wrx into the 13.3-13.4 range, average drivers are around the 13.5-13.7 and poor drivers are around the 13.8-14.0. I think a good driver in a 350Z would run a 13.7-13.9 for the recent model years and a 13.9-14.1 for the first few years. As for trap speeds for cobb stage II wrxs i have seen it range from 97-103mph. i don't study the 350Z but i think they usually trap around 98 or 99 for the average, so the trap should be almost the same with the edge going to the wrx cause i have never seen a 350Z trap in the 102-103 range, even being rare with the wrx but i know someone on here ran a 13.3@103mph with a cobb stage II.
    2005 WRX (Short throw shifter, lightweight pulley,STI Splitters,Tein H-Tech springs,Up/Down Pipe, ERZ Catback, Cobb Stage 2, ASA JH8 with Yokohama ES 100s) 13.680@100.46mph

    ^^ I can't disagree with any of that...just trying not to do the "bench racing" thing too much. The truth is that if you go to a track, you'll see guys in Stage 2 cars doing mid 13's, and you'll see guys in Stage 2 cars running in the 14's.

    This year's 350/g35coupe allegedly makes about 300hp with a v6 NA, with the 6 speed anyhow. That's not too shabby. Yes, its not rwhp, yes, it costs a lot comparitively, but that's respectable. And they weight a good deal.

    Has anyone tried one past 70 for any good bit of time, or speed? I would be interested to know the turbo 4 handles a modern N/A v6 in the higher speeds.
