    350Z... Got me...

    Was crossing the GW Bridge last night at about 4am. I was driving at a pretty nice speed (~70mph) when I see a Z go by me on the right. There was a truck in front of me so I changed lanes behind the guy. He slowed down a bit(~60) and then punched it. I did the same, but down shifted to fourth instead of third. Needless to say, owned. Dumb me! Oh well, next time...

    The only time you can get away with using 4th is if you have a bigger hairdryer under your bonnet. If you are still on the stock turbo, and you are going too fast to drop into third, let it go! Chances are ....you'll get owned!

    But I am sure that your leaky uppipe is not doing you any favours though!

    Nice run!

    Yea.... I'm not sure whether it's my uppipe or downpipe, but it's not helping! I know fourth gear sucks... I guess it was just late and I wasn't thinking.... Next Time!!

    The uppipe and DP help over stock!

    Our 4th gear does not suck per say.... it just need a bigger turbo to pull it! If you upgrade turbos, you will find that on highway races, you can just leave it in 4th, and let you turbo do the walking all the way up to 120mph

    It is a long 4th gear, but on the bright side.... less chance of mis-shifting on highway races! But you do need that bigger turbo first though!

    Agreed. Even a mild upgraded snail will make 4th gear a happier place.
