    First off it doesn't matter if its auto or manual, the difference between the two in the 1/4 and in trap speeds are about the same.

    Don't get all defensive. Fine you beat the your friends G35 while you were stock. Not our fault that your friend can't drive. Honestly, i wish you were closer by me because ill show you what a stock G35 coupe can do from both a dig and a roll. If you had some mods then yes more people would believe you but you said you were stock. FACT is that stock wrx's trap way lower than a G35. Stock wrx's trap around 92-94mph range while the G will trap 97-100mph. When racing from a roll, trap speed is what you look at. Also the last time i checked, the wrx had 170whp while the G has 235whp. Tell me again how you beat him from a roll in stock form?? Maybe you slipped some Red Bull in the gas tank and it gave your car wings??

    Probably you forget wrx has at least 300-500 pound lighter in weight and a " AWD", so that make the race getting closer!!!!!!!

    i agree with him.....when i test drove the Z it felt slow until you hit ~90mph....but like i said before there is no contest with the awesome styling and handling of the Z (or g35)

    i always thought that wrx trap speeds are a little low b/c of the gearing of 4th. Its more overdrive. From what I have seen, wrx's can hang with cars with much higher trap speeds until the top of third gear. And when I say much higher, i mean just a few mph difference.

    A G coupe is about 3200lbs, so its about a 250-300lbs difference. Also, when racing from a "roll" the "AWD" will hurt you not help you.

    If you've been driving a modded wrx and then test drive a Z, then yes its gonna feel slow because you're going from turbo to NA. I went from a stage 4 wrx to a G35. At first the G felt really slow to me. But you have to realize that you're going from a turbo which gives you all your power at once when you hit full boost, to a NA car that has streamline power.

    Heres a scenario for you: A stock wrx and a stock Z or G will both run identical 1/4 mile times at the track. We'll say with average drivers, both cars will run 14.4 secs. Now in this case, the wrx had the avantage of the AWD launch while the Z or G didn't. Take that AWD launch away from the rex and what do you have?? You will have the Z walking the rex. Without that launch, the rex is a low 15 secs car. If you don't believe me, go into the 4eat section here and ask.

    Its better. With the rex, a full tank would last me 3-4 days. With the G35 maybe 5-6 days

    sorry man, that was my brother posting again with my screenname. I think he wants to race you in the wrx, we just got it back. Personally, i think you'd do better against me with the r32, we just got a lot of stuff done to the wrx and wouldn't be fair.

    anyhow, i went and checked out a used 04 g35... man, im sorry, i can't stand the damn interior. wtf? a 30k dollar car should have a better interior. I mean, it looks nice, but when you really sit in it, it looks so damn plasticky. They r32 doesnt seem that bad, and it is considered lower in the luxury level than the g35. I will check out the 05 g35's though, i hear those have a redesigned interior.

    Well either car would be fun to run against regardless of mods. In the spring or summer when GLD opens, maybe we all can run against each other and see what happens. Should be fun.

    As for the interior of the coupe, well i'll admit that its not the greatest but don't forget that infiniti is japanese. Japanese cars aren't known for their fancy interiors but more for their outer appearance and performance. European cars usually take the cake with the inside of the car. But coming from a rex to G35, the difference in quality and looks is like night and day.
