    I agree that 350Z's are over rated. And I would trade a Fox and an Acura for a WRX myself! Yeah, the LS1 cars are DEFINITLY coming down in price. Its pretty nice, actually.

    And wow, 70 hp!
    I wouldn't say "overrated". I just think quite a few people mistake the Z for being some kind of monster strait line car, when it seems more like a daily drivable track ready car. I can attest from driving one first hand that it's fun as hell, and it's great to have all that NA pull at your beck and call.

    On another note: I fear LS1 cars, they are monsters. Seriously..
    One day I'll have a truly awesome sig

    Don't get me wrong, I understand that 350Z is a bad track car. Note though, that the 2010 SS took a Nismo on the track. LS1's are nice. I've had this one for about 8 months and I'm loving it!

    Now I have to wonder, what year Z did it face off against? Because I have a very difficult time thinking an SS took out a Nismo 370Z on the track..

    Oh yeah, its was a 370Z. It was in a recent issue of Car and Driver or one of those mags. I can't remember which one exactly. They were actually kind of disappointed in the Nismo and even wrecked it on one lap! They said the brakes were awful. Thats something the SS has is the Brembo's stop is yesterday! It actually lapped better than anything in its price range!

    LOL! So hold on, these guys wreck a car , then claim it's the car?

    Kudos to the Camaro though. Nice to know that the handling and brakes are as good as needed on a car with that much power.

    Power? I think it needs the brakes and handling more for its 3850 curb weight! Lol! Yeah, your right, it does need it for the power too. But they put a lot into the handling and braking of make up for all the extra weight.

    They complained about the brakes sucking and some other stuff I can't remember on the Nismo.

    I just read a review. It seems Nissan really dropped the ball.Handling is tighter, but from what road and track say it's only slightly faster, and the braking is like "wooden pads"

    Is that on the Nismo? I heard they are going to offer a track pad. They chose the pads on the car now for low dust instead of performance.

    The the review mentioned that. Kind of retarded since a Nismo Z is supposed to be more aimed for track performance....

    Or at least that's the impression I got.
