So a friend of a friend just gets a 350z from his parents for a present because 'he was tired of his V8 grand cherokee'. He starts talking about how amazing of a driver he is so I decide to challenge him to a race, from a stop. I am pretty confident that even completely stock, I could beat this kid to 60 or 80 in my stock 04. He is automatic, has only had his liscence for about 6 months, and isnt used to his car. What do you think..do I have a chance??

Because he is auto you should not have much trouble. As long as you get a halfway decent launch you should be able to keep a car or so of distance between you two. Dont get to overconfident though, he is still capable of running mid 14's and with his auto he will be quite consistant. I decently driven wrx is good for mid 14's, but a well driven one is good for low 14's. So pretty much you should be able to hold him off by a car or so, but dont mess up because he will right on your ass.
from a roll, forget about it. You will be toast.

Why in the world would you buy an auto 350z :confused1

well first of all, this kid doesnt know anything about cars....he thinks that simply because I am a 4cyl and he is a 6cyl then he has it in the bag. Second of all, I probably wont run him simply because he is 17 and from what I hear, pretty crazy behind the wheel. And now he has 280rwd hp to be crazy with. The last thing I need is for him and his friends to start street racing cause of this and kill themselves or someone else due to lack of experience.... i really want to own him, but I probably shouldnt.

thats very mature thinking.

i think the better question is: do you even want to be street racing someone that inexperienced? i guess in a straight line not a whole lot can happen, but i wouldn't trust some dumbass 17-year-old personally.

either way, if you can drive you'll definitely win. auto 350z's are pigs.

A very good point, streetracing is one thing. Streetracing someone that's inexperienced is another thing. I don't know about in PA but in IL you can get in some deep **** if the person you're racing were to be injured or killed as a result of your race.

Also, 17 y/o + RWD + PA snow = :rotfl:

From a dig, a stock wrx should edge out the 350z but don't say that an Auto 350z are pigs. The difference in 1/4 mile times between a 6spd and auto are maybe .1-.3 sec depending on driver. I mean i hit a 14.6 in my car without launching which is better than some 6spds will do due to bad drivers. The Auto 350z is capable of 14.3-14.6 in stock form with once again depending on the driver.

All in all though, this kid with the Z sounds like a tool and probably doesn't know how to drive his car even though its auto. The wrx should have no problems winning if they were to race.

i resent that remark.

If the kid is talking crap, show him what he's in for. But keep it safe and take him to the track...that way you wouldn't have to worry about his lack of driving skills.

If your worried about strret racing but really wanna show him up why not goto a track, then you can videotape it AND have the slips to rub it in his his face whenever you want.

Getting caught street racing here in Cali will put an end on your vehicle. They passed this new law that they are entitled to wreck your car in the junk yard in front of you for street racing. Not very nice, but it works. It teaches those young little ricers a lesson. Regardless, I think you should be able to take him. I got away from a manual 350z once from a complete stop. With a decent launch, you can really put some distance up until about 75mph.

are you serious? They choose to wreck cars instead of re-selling them for a profit?

It should be interesting. With an auto he's going to hit that 0-60 time pretty consistently. If you fubar your launch at all you're going to get screwed. So as long as you can drive you should be ok.

the 350z will run consistently. By the quarter mile, the wrx with a great launch will be a car in front or so, but the 350z will be catching up, even in auto form.

btw, i still want an 05 g35 mt!!!!!!!!!! 298 hp!!!! mmmmmmmm. mmm. mmmmmmmmmmm.
