The Nissan 300z and the new 350z are some of the most overpriced, overrated cars I have ever driven. I work at Ford/Mazda dealership, and I constantly have people coming in trying to tell me how much better the 350z is than the RX-8. And as soon as the get in and drive an RX-8, they completely change their minds. A fully loaded 350z is about 7k more than a fully loaded RX-8. A 350z does zero to sixty in 5.5 and a quarter in 14.1. The RX-8 is a hell of a lot lighter, it handles WAAAYYYY better, has better balance, better throttle response, and best of all it redlines at 10,000 rpm. The old 300z was a joke, and the new 350 is not much of an improvement.

Anyone else notice that if you were doing 95ish then you hit the brakes slowing down to whatever speed, maybe 10-15mph less? yet still pulled away from this guy like crazy... but all in 5th? if you would have had any chance you woulda needed to downshift to pull out of that and even then i doubt it

im not saying i believe/dont believe this story but let me give you another one. i use to have a 99 cavalier z24. the only mods i had where some sprint springs and that was it. my friend had an 02 celica gts sport shift. that thing was suppose to be 180 horses out of the box plus the cai he had put him up some more. i beat the shit out of him not once, not twice but THREE times. i know the car is faster then how he was driving it. as a matter of fact, after the last time i beat him he sold it LOL! BTW i had an ATX and the z24 is only 150 hp. so it was definately the driver. not that the gst is super fast but come on against a stock cavalier? anything is possible.

If the celica gts was an automatic thats why you won. Other than that you would have no chance. The automatic sport shifter doesn't allow the car to hit lift and use the high profile cam to build all of there power and since the auto doesn't rev high enough when it shifts gears it bogs because it falls out of the powerband and waits for the cams to catch up. Well the z24 was no slouch just like the 1991-94 sentra se-rs

Well, he does have the 2.3L, which we all know can beat a stock SVTF. So, it must be able to beat a 350z if both were stock....

J/K

I think the 350z was just playing around. Maybe the title of the thread was misleading with what really actually happened.

I think that it's time that I added to the crazy idea that our cars can hang with a Z. Yesterday on the way to work I was in a double turn lane heading onto the highway sitting at the red light next to a sweet looking Z. Light turns green and intentionally I let him take the lead and go easy on the gas trying to let the guy know I wasn't interested in racing his car. So he's up a little over a car length and then he guns it. Now maybe I was having a bad day but I didn't think that was all too cool so I follow suit. He never gained anything more on me than the lead that I so politely gave him at the start. We ran up to 110 before shutting down due to traffic in both lanes but in the end I still beat his ass into the gate for work. Did I beat the Z, no. Did I have fun trying, hell yeah! Was he racing at all, I don't know but he was doing 110 in a 55. I gave him a friendly nod at the gate just to rub in the fact that my "econo shit-box" hung with his "sports car". I'm a total Nissan fan and I love the Z so you won't hear me downplaying it's capabilities. I know that if prompted it would smoke my car but that's only if the driver is willing. If you aren't willing to use what you bought then I'd say you must have wasted about $12K getting the wrong damned car.
