So there I was, minding my own business…
Ok, that’s a lie. I was looking to tangle. I rolled up to an intersection, and there’s a 350Z waiting for the light next to me, and an empty lane to my right. The V1 is silent, and there are no other cars around. The weather is clear, good visibility, conditions are perfect… why not see if he wants to play?
Looks like he does – he nods at me, and goes to watching the light like a hawk, with occasional glances to the side at me. I do a quick blip of the throttle to set the hook. The light goes green, and I do my best 2.5k quickest-launch-you-can-without-being-obvious until I can see if he’s really going for it.
He is. The Z jumps ahead at first, his wheelwell even with my front bumper. Feather the clutch back in, revs to 5k and back out. The ‘Rex bites in, and instantly, he’s back off my back bumper. Hit second, I hear a chirp off to my left as he does as well, while another carlenghth opens between us. I shift to third, and back off a bit, but he brakes hard and turns off a sidestreet. Wuss.
Nice looking car though. Anyone know what kind of 1320 numbers they’re turning stock?
edit - Btw, this is an '03 sedan, Vishnu Stage 2, short shift. No other mods
