    Cool FXT vs. G35 coupe

    Visited Toronto last weekend, noticed a G35 jaunting from stoplight to stoplight. Manuvered a couple of cars and got lined up. Safe road, no cross-roads. Get the ok from the wife. He had no idea what was about to happen...

    Green. He launches, I half-launch (2500rpm). Get an immediate car length... pop through 3rd to about 65 or so and let off. End up 1.5 cars ahead. Surprised the crap outta him.

    He pulls up to the next light with a big grin on his face. Gave him the wave, waves back. He ends up taking the on-ramp to the expressway...I went straight.

    Fun run...those exhausts sound great for a 6er.

    Hey audirs6, can you brake torque enough to build boost on an auto XT? I would think that if you can, it could launch as hard as the manual XT's.

    never bought it to the track yet, but i have launched it on the street an i never payed attention really but it didnt go over 3000 rpm, the manual you can dump teh clutch at 5xxx rpm (i dont know what you can do with the manual)
