    my friends z also lost the nice exhaust note after his mods, but now that he took most of it off (except headers and intake) it sounds good again.

    Nice race man, way to not back down even when the odds were stacked against you from a stop. The new Z's look cool and classy. I just wish the "350" would match the horsepower rating. I don't know why Nissan put out a car that is slower than the previous model. They should of kept the TT system in my opinion. Good luck if you race from a roll, post your results here if you do.

    Your roommate definately slowed you down, next time open the passenger door and kick him out prior to a race

    haha yeah thanks man! I wish the 350's were TT Are they really slower tho stock for stock..?? Only one I've raced, I pulled, of course it could have been driver or bad comp/leak many thngs since they are old now.. Whats the best 1/4 time for a bone stock 300zxTT??? Yeah I can't wait to race one from a roll, I think it'll be pretty close....

    i think if you race one stock on stock now you'll win because they are older. Tear and wear etc etc. But that show top gear in england. They did a comparison with old cars and new cars and it was old gti's new gti's ..350z and old 300zx tt and 300zx tt was quicker. I cant find vid now.


    heres a link that compares them, best thing i could find right now. I know 350z's dip into high 13's but this is close enough. Drivers race but if you look at times all the way up to 150. 300zx seems to have better top end.

    yeah it took nissan almost 10years to bring back a car just as fast as it's counter part. real big improvement. car is dead sexy and gets more chicks then all the 3 letters cars put together but left alot to be desired. especially for the price. file the new z and the rx8 in the "we almost got it right pile" along with the gto as well. although the new mustang seems to have hit the nail on the head for revamps and remodeling goes.

    I was actually driving out to watch this STi race my friends SRT.. (which is slower than me) when we caught a redlight... I wasn't too thrilled that he was solo, while I had my 240 lb. roomate with me ... Light turned green and he knew how to ****ing launch that thing!!! <--1st time I've ran someone that knew what they were doing with AWD He put about 5-7 cars on me to 60 before I finally stopped his pull... but I wasn't pulling back either...(maybe without the roomate I could have inched..who knows..)

    Not to complain, but my launch was probably a 5 out of 10, not that it would have made much difference...Talked to him before the race and he said he had intake and catback... (claimed it wasn't TBE and I believe him cause he was a cool guy) I have an 05' 6mt base 350Z with intake if you were wondering...

    In conclusion... I don't think an n/a Z has any chance in hell against a well driven STi from a stop..from a roll it would probably be close tho Oh and he ripped my friends SRT apart afterwards too LOL..

    lesson for next time, when the opportunity for a race looms, give all excess weight the boot.... Don't try that with the girlfriend or wifey though, cus if you give her the boot and you win, you lost...

    nice run

    I agree that Z's "can" be pricey... but if you get the base model like I did for $26 grand, it's a pretty good deal
