    G35 Coupe vs My STi

    Last night after watching Troy (I know, I saw it late, but it's still a good film. It would have been better if the teenaged girls in front of me stopped gawking at every breath of Orlando Bloom), I was headed home. I made a detour in my town and I decided to visit Red Lobster to see if they were still open. I was hungry and so was my friend. They were closed.

    So, we left and headed for the highway. What do I spot in front of me also getting on the highway? A super slow Mini Van and a G35 Coupe right behind it with the license plate: ILK2SPD. Yes... he's going to get himself pulled over a ton with a dumb vanity plate like that. Sorry, but vanity plates like that always make me angry. He should have just gotten the vanity plate: GMMETKT or TKTMEPG. So as we're headed on the on ramp, I keept in 4th at about 40 mph, I really should have been in 3rd, but eh, no worries.

    I told my friend: "I think this G35 Coupe is going to gun it. Oh, here he goes, do it do it!" The G35 pushes it and I pursue. The whole time I was thinking: Man, I bet you this guy is thinking to himself, "WTF is that behind me". God I love my car. Any how, I didn't really beat him or anything, I just wanted to see how my STi held up. I caught up to him but I had to short myself in 5th ear at 5K RPM, or else I would have hit his bumper. I wanted to wave to the guy but his window tints were mafia black.

    I had to get to my exit since I had missed it anyway, so I took the next one at a gingerly pace. He followed me and tried to race again. He was on my ass the whole time, but we were on streets close to residentials and I didn't really want to get myself into some dumb trouble. Heh, oh well, he was smelling some of my nice catless exhaust as he followed so closely. I guess I deserve the tailgating since I did cut him off to get to the next exit, but I left him about 2-3 car lengths when I got in front of him.

    Ah, all is good. As long as I can keep up while shorting myself in a gear, I'm a happy camper. Oh yeah, and no one was hurt, which is always good .

    Nice runs there mate! I admit that I like to do the same thing often just to see where I stack up too, and to sorta show them too that there is something a little quicker commin thru too!

    Maybe he had to slam on the brakes to avoid a wreck?

    Nah. There was no wreck. There was just this Toyota Sienna Mini-Van about 1 bus length ahead that I couldn't see from my angle.

    There was another car in front of me when I pulled into the slowest lane in front of him. When I switched lanes, he had 2-3 car lengths between us.

    As for mods: Just a down pipe and GFB 50/50 BOV.

    Oh... and no spoiler

    My best friend has an 03 G35 coupe and he would always put cars on my rex from a roll when I was stock, then i finally put the up/turboback on and i could put about a car on him from 30-90. They are definately quick cars from a roll especially. Plus they're just pimp hehe

    I love the G35 Coupe, I almost bought one. They are very quick. I think they're just a little bit slower than a 350Z, but nothing dramatically different.

    I've raced both the G35 Coupe and the 350Z, beat the 350Z by pulling on him hard from 80 to 120... but that might be because I was more prepared for that battle, where as the G35 coupe, I wasn't as prepared .

    I've run against a couple in the last few days, and they are definately not an easy kill, even for my stage 4 car. I definately pull on them, but the topend of that thing is amazing, it just rips after 80mph when Im' taking a second to spool...I'd love to own one.

    Yes, they are definately fast from a roll. I had a very tuff fight racing one stock vs stock in my STi.

    About 3 weeks ago I ran one from about 25mph - 90mph and only pulled a few cars. Thats in my STi with TBE and Utec. So they are definatly fast cars from a roll.

    I fooled w/my friends twin turbo 350z...His low boost map is 370whp and we fooled from 2nd to the top of 3rd and I was at his back bumper....He wasnt pulling.

    As far as stockers, they really dont pose a challenge...but modded they are nasty.

    You know your car would look better without the box wing and pinkness. Go on do it....no ones looking.
