    wrx vs 2007 skyline GTR

    Well first of all I didnt even think this car was out yet..
    But man is that car friggin SWEET!!! Sounds awesome too

    I'm on my way home and I see up ahead of me what I thought at the time was a nice g35.. So I switch lanes and get behind him.. And to my suprise..It's no infinity.. Its a nice shiny new GTR I pull up next to him and its a guy in his 30's with his 60 something year old dad in the passenger seat.. So I figure what the hell...I gotta see what this thing's got.. And I give it a little boost to see if he wants to play.. Well he takes the bait and whips arround the only car in front of him to catch up..
    Now we are on a 3 lane road with noone ahead and were about to hit a nice red light..Just as we get to the light it turns green and I'm in first gear at about a 10 or so mph roll and I hear him start to get on it. I short shift to second and BOOM!!! My exaust shoots a huge flame just as its at his window is at my bumper.LOL And by the time I hit 4th he's more than 10 cars back.
    Ok so maybe he was scared by the flame and let out maybe??
    Then we hit the next red light and he pulls up next to me and rolls his window down and he and his passenger are both laughing and give me a and tell's me about the" huge fire ball.". All i can say to him is DAMN man thats a nice azz car ...And the light turns.. We both just kinda roll off the line and I wait for him to hit it first and its on again.. First,second,third gear It just got worse and worse for him.. I let off at about 80and he was 15 cars or more back ....Too bad for him...
    But Damn I STILL would have traded cars with him on the spot... Although I thought that car would be much faster...

    Ok so I know you all wana know...
    My mods
    03wrx
    2.5 swap/wrx heads
    18g
    and all the mods to support 340whp...

    Just thought I would share...

    ...wait...wait...wait. You raced the new 2008 Nissan Skyline GT-R???? Or the G35....

    I'd know about that. But if what you say is true, it could have been in the breakin period....So don't get too happy.

    The 2008 Nissan GTR has not came out yet.....We are still about a year away before we see that on our shores. Most likely it was a nice G-35. If it was a GTR then I know the twin turbo v6 would have put up a better race. Good kill though.
    I know you can get the GTR badges through Nissan.

    Ok well I'm NOT an idiot... YES it was a skyline GT-R...
    We had a little more conversation at the light than I actualy posted..
    But basicly I asked him to show me what it could do.. He didnt say no...
    I just as suprised as anyone...but there is a spankin new white GT-R running arround south orlando.. Thats for sure....

    yeah, the new GT-R is not out yet... what are you talking about???

    2007 GT-R does not exist anywhere in the world right now. If it looked like a G35 with a SKYLINE badge, then it was a G35 with a SKYLINE badge. (that is what they are in Japan though, but do not mistake SKYLINE's for being GT-R's...)

    It is possible that Nissan Corporate is rolling around in the new GT-R's right now, so do tell if that is what you actually saw.

    I know the Japanese style G35 has SKYLINE badges. That could be it, because I dont see that car to be in the country yet, unless it is like a prototype, in which case...look out for magazine articles for it! If it really is a new skyline, enjoy and take tons of pictures.

    Nissan GT-R is a go for U.S.
    The dream of every red-blooded automotive enthusiast is coming true. On April 12, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. President and CEO Carlos Ghosn gave the wake up call; the Nissan GT-R is go. The production version will make its world debut at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show. It will go on sale in Japan in Fall 2007. U.S. and Canada will follow in Spring 2008.
    Seems a bit premature for GT-R's to be rollin' around over a year from release... sorry, but I do not believe you. Having seen countless pre-production cars before, it is highly unlikely that you would see one on the streets so far in advance...

    1) 2008 Skyline GT-R does not exist yet in the US
    2) If you did race it it would have beat you
    3) It would have been driven by Nissan employees
    4) It would have taken place on the west coast


    I'll leave the thread open but this is going to turn into a flame-fest. and at that point this is being shut down.

    might have to do with the fact that nissan corpoate is in socal. plenty of places to test out a car in california which makes for no reason to ship the car from japan to california, and then from california to florida.
