    My experience with the Nissan V6's has been that they don't feel fast at all due to their comparatively linear power delivery...but then you look down at the speedo and suddenly you're doing 70.

    The G37 coupe traps in the 103mph range (magazine racing ftw!), so it's not really what I'd consider a slow car in its price range.

    The 07-08 350z is good for 13.5 @103-104mph according to mags. Now real owners are getting 13.4-13.5 on average with the good drivers getting as low as 13.1 at 106mph. From what I've seen on the 09 WRX it will do a 13.5 @ 102mph per the mags and owners. So that being said it would probably be a drivers race with the edge going towards the Z. Thats going from a dig. From a roll the Z will win hands down; it just has much more power to the wheels than the WRX. Take the launch out of the equation and the WRX becomes much more handicaped.

    As for the talk about the new Z and the G37, you can't compare the two. The Z and G37 aren't nearly the same as the 350z and G35 were. The G37 is much slower due to weight when compared to the 370z. The 370z is a 13.1-13.3 sec car at 106-108mph. Against a 09 WRX the WRX would lose very easily assuming equal drivers. From a roll it wouldn't even be close.

    Thats to be expect with the 05 350z. It's only good for 13.9 in the 1/4 while your car with stage 1 is good for low to mid 13's. Was thinking of getting the new 09 WRX but decided on a 370z instead. Can't wait till I start modding.
