    Z ya...

    I have this street which is almost a 1/4 mile by my house, people usually race down it since it's straight and has two lanes. The area around it is pretty baren so it's just right for a nice little street race.

    Anyways, I was comming home from getting some chinese food and was in the left turn lane of this particular street. I looked in my rearview and saw a silver 350Z, it was bone stock. Light turned green and we both headed left. I kept it in 1st and got in the right lane while he lined up in the left lane. We were both about 15mph roll, I wasn't sure he wanted to race but I saw his car jump from 1 car away to my rear bumper, so I go WOT and we go at it. Top of 1st he's pulling hard on me. 2nd and were almost even, 3rd and we're dead even but at the top of 3rd I start pulling. I couldn't believe it, and I think he starts to hit the brakes cuz at the end of 3rd I'm about a 1 1/2 cars in front of him. At 4th I started to brake but he passed by and I heard his Z at WOT when he passed by so I don't know if I won or he broke early. I think he was doing a ricer flyby or something.

    I looked in my passenger floor and noticed the chinese food I bought tipped over and spilled all over the floor! I slowed down and took a right onto my street with mess in my passenger seat and a Z speeding off in the distance. I'll race him again one day, but it must have shocked him to see a wagon do that against his Z...

    Nice!

    Truth of the matter is that you were owned by the Chinese food

    Yep.....at least you don't have this lingering cigarette smell inside the car (btw I don't smoke nor do my passengers)...I'd rather have spilled chinese food than that! Plus it smells better

    I took a 350 before from a dig. I heard they can sneak into high 13s stock with a really good driver?

    I ran one at the track a few weekends ago. They are quick.
    The one I raced removed his air filter all together, and ran a best of 13.73 @ 102.99 that day. When I ran him he ran a 13.83 to my 13.497, and his trap speed was nearly as good as mine too.
    I was impressed. I don't think they're all that quick though. This one may have been on the verge of being a factory freak.

    Hopefully it's not raining this Sunday at Sacramento Raceway. I wonder if I break the 14 sec barrier, my best 60' was 1.9 but I usually do 2 flats on the 60's. Maybe there will be another 350Z there to race too...

    I can never get any Z or G35 owner's to race. I don't think I've ever seen a post with someone that owns one on this board. Are they SCART?

    turn wrx nice avatar. Courtney Day fan huh. Her bf is on a s10 site i'm on. She's on the new mini-truckin cover pick it up u'll see

    back to this thread.

    on my way back from virginia beach in june my rex, a green RS turbo, a 350z, and an s2000 were ripping all the way up the east coast and the 350z wasn't all as i expected it to be. Dunno if he wasn't pushing it hard or just wasn't going but myself, the s2000 and especially the RS put a distance on him in time. It was real fun drive tho. It made the 8hr or however long drive fee a lot shorter.

    with a average driver, the 6mt Z should be able to pull of high 13s on a good day with STOCK tires.
