    280z (1) wrx (0)

    Raced a 280 z from a stop light to about 70mph. It was even until about 50 than he started to pull. He would have kept pulling if we kept going. I figured it was going to be close because he had all kinds of stuff that I noticed about the car. he had a large fart can, large tach on the dash. 2 pillar guages and he had 3.0 on the side fenders where mustangs usually have 5.0.
    Before we went, he drove past me and I could really hear the turbo whine on his car really loud, sounded pretty sweet.
    I just have a gutted uppipe so I figure I might be low 14's in the 1/4. I get the feeling that his car was mid to high 13's.

    sounds like you ran into a 280 shell with an engine swap...most likely spells trouble!

    I like this guy!

    I've ridden in a 280Z28, supercharged 350 with a 4 speed auto. It was a beast.

    There is someone driving around the Bay Area in a 280Z with a RB26 transplant. Yes the Skyline GTR motor. In this thread:

    http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...highlight=rb26

    Also, my buddy had a pumped 240Z with a Ford 302 bored out to 327 that he bought off someguy for cheap. It supposedly ran high 10's in the 1/4 mile. That thing was the fastest car I have ever been in. The kind that make you **** your pants and grin at the same time.

    WHOA! There's a Servin It Up 2?!
    Damn. I hafta get that one. The first was bad ass, Best bike video I've ever seen. And that Z about made me jizz myself the first time i saw it, best part of the whole video! I used to work at a motorcycle dealership so we got tons of different ones. But that one and Crusty 8 were probably the 2 best I saw.

    Damn, maybe Darius will come out with a box set.
