Alltrac and the 350Z

Postby wannabe toms racer » Fri Jul 25, 2008 7:40 pm

yesterday i had an unexpected encounter while going for a lil run in the woods when out of the curvy roads i had just sped thru comes a silver Z with like 19s and what sounded like an aftermarket exhaust, or do stock Zs just sound that mean? i see the guy almost every day cruisin in town, must have a good job... anyways i was stuck behind a farm truck and he decides to pass me and the truck right before a hill. now i wasnt feeling too ambitious before this but now i was slightly infuriated at the fact that id never be able to keep up with this guy in a million years, so i found a spot, passed the truck and persued. we fly thru some more tight curves and sweepers and hes still quite a ways in front of me so i decided id wasted enuf 93 and turned around.. i start back down the road and thru a couple of bends and i notice the HIDs in the distance behind me.... :shock: "nooo waaaay" i said calmly as he got closer and closer (mind im doin a good 60 at the time just cruisin) not too long afterwards i was flying down these crazy back roads wit this Z on my tail like i was a target. we were takin corners like nothin and i was givin the Z a fairly good fight i think. though i have no idea how fast i was goin we were MOVIN! when we came close to the edge of town i turned off to head home and he followed me still, i wanted to pull over and chat but he took off on me, passed me like i was standin still, the tracs quick thru corners, but not straights yet... booo. all in all, it felt great. i had never gone that fast on those roads before, but this car HANDLED IT GREAT. i have a differant point of view on tuning this thing now and have been enlightened by this guy in the Z and i am greatful. im now pricing out some handling bits to further this things grip power. 8) thanx for reading!

Looks for the old 350z thread on here. BTW: Zs sound the sextor w/ stock exhaust. I have both a 350z and a 185 and stock for stock my 185 can not touch my Z in turning or acceleration. However now, my 4 feels faster with a 205 engine in it. It also has much more grip, but I have done a decent bit to the suspension. With a good driver a 185 w/ minimal suspension work and good tires can keep up with a 350z though.

AX is actually pretty cheap. You decide what level you want and you make your mods from there...

Usually auto-x take place in a large parking lot... not a track.
