I have to share this one with you guys.

Pretty short and sweet story

11pm, Blue 350z with aftermarket wheels and looks like stock everything else.

We're in the right lane, hes a few cars back, everyones cruising at 85. He decides to pull ahead of everyone in the left lane because his exit is coming up. He passes me and gets about 7 carlengths away and I decide to give chase.

I leave it in 5th and floor it, he sees me coming, he gets on it. And then, to my surprise, I start reeling him in right from the start....

and eventually walk him around 130. It gave me such a triumphant feeling, my passenger and I both were like "OMG YES". Then I gave him the emergency blinkers to rub it in :)

My only thoughts are that his wheels were probably heavy and it was probably automatic. It makes me think it would have been even if he didn't have those things working against him. but hey, Im not even sure if it was auto!

1.8T FWD, Neuspeed 1bar, APR Exhaust.

If people's stories about the GIAC chip are true and it is a lot better than the Neuspeed, I can't wait to try it out.

ahahah a 350z puts down around 250 to the wheels - unless you are running gtx or gtrs - i don't know man........... also with 7-8 pounds of boost if they have a turbo kit that thing puts down like 400 to the wheels. But it is heavy and lumpy as a boat for a 2 door car with a curb weight of ~3400 MT - it sure hell wasn't spent on the interior - the engine is an award winning one.

That APR exhaust must be fantastic. All I have is an APR chip and an intake but 350Zs spank me everytime, automatic or not. You probably do much better from a roll though, being fwd.

grip_racer
05-29-2007, 11:28 AM
i mean im giving him the benefit of the doubt here

it weighs 500lbs more than my car, it had heavy aftermarket wheels, and it was probably auto. not to mention a bit more drivetrain loss for RWD.

but the fact of the matter is i was able to walk him

okay this is my final word to the people who are like "omg not possible", because their responses are inevitable.

think about it

200+hp FWD 2850lbs, Manual

287hp RWD 3400lbs, Heavy wheels, auto tranny

and i started right at my torque peak.

please, its not unbelieveable.

05-29-2007, 12:23 PM
Wow . Why do you guys care so much if he's lying?

If he thinks he beat him, let him be.

you should have posted this in the chatterbox , but i think itll get moved there anyway.

Also, at that speed, you cant tell if he was AT or MT..... FYI

grip_racer
05-29-2007, 12:31 PM
ok stop lieing now and admit u got walked, he let off at 130 prolly

seeing as the rate of WALKAGE (on my part) was the same for the entire race, you sir are incorrect.

i mean, i let off a 135 after he was a car-length behind me, thats for sure.

grip_racer
05-29-2007, 12:31 PM

it only matters at lower speeds? i thought there was always a fluid loss no matter what?

05-29-2007, 12:33 PM
torque is for go...horsepower is for show.

75HP more than you....your displacement with your turbo at 1.0bar is not enough to over take him and start trapping faster than him. sorry.

torque works great off the line...after that its horsepower that lets you finish the race not torque.

considering on occassion when i a race a 350z....if they got some aftermarket on them...its a tough race. if they are stock i can beat them entering in 3rd gear if we go from the dig. soon to change once i upgrade my clutch. but for my car being a pretty quick pc16 car....and i am beating them by 2 CLs through 4th. i don't see your K03 in 5th gear moving past anyone....a k04 barely does anyting and i'm at 21-22psi with FMIC. and your at 14.5psi and going to beat someone on the top end....i doubt that. again...a 15.5 second car vs. a low 14s or high 13s car. and your gonna run him down on the top end? i don't think so. have fun be safe...thats just not realistic.

Yes. Someone did it in a FWD using a APR race chip and I did it with a custom GIAC chip in my quattro. Huge difference in power when compared to a Neuspeed 1 bar chip. With that you would be lucky to hit low 15's. They dont call that chip Nospeed for nothing.

i was going to say it in my OP, but i didnt want to imply anything, but he probably wasnt racing, you would be surprised how often this happens.

The S4 was on it's maiden voyage with under 1000 miles so it was half throttle and 5k rpms max. The dude thought we were racing and was seriously pumped. He kept looking back over his shoulder and looked hysterically happy when we met at the next light. A second gear start and a straight WOT pull to 60 left him seriously confused. Poor little ego.

250whp on a stock 350z, not gonna happen.
Speaking of getting smoked by hondas, My friend and I were in his Volvo 850r with a slew of goodies from IPD. His car is quick. We pulled up next to a red crx that wanted to play, We got worked, absolutly worked. We talked to the guy at the next light he was real cool and when he said it had a k-22 I realized why we just lost to a honda.[:D]

You're wrong. I quite believe this as I have done it about three times already with my current mods. These car are not fast by any means, they get smoked by my dad's 5000LBS ML55, where my car is even quicker than the ML I completely annihilate Z's. They have horrible top end for some reason.

Now go to the track and post up some time slips showing how "fast" your car is. I am so tired of the "I am so fast because I beat this or that on the street". Just because a car is going fast on the street doesn't mean he is racing you. Go to the track and everyone on the track "is" racing.

I was browsing today i noticed some guys hittin high 14's wuts up with that? I thought the z was high 13's i wouldnt even have bought it if i knew it was a mid 14 car. My 1998 pontiac gtp with just a pully auto hits 14.2 just mashing the pedal i thought i was upgrading alot wiht the z kinda dissapointed. Maybe those guys just suk to me the z feels alot faster then my low 14 pontiac doesnt comapre really cant understand how they hit those high quater mile times makin us look bad? if this is tru i may have to sell my z lol and go back to the pontiac route 6.0 gto but i really prefer the z i love it jsut dont want a mid 14 car i thought the z was achivable mid 13s stock guess should have researched more. But i mean a stock wrx runs about 14.2 and i raced one stock vs stock off the line about 5 times and beat it liek 4 car lenths easy so how could a z be that slow i raced many wrx modded ones 2 i never lost roll or dig i even took a 5.7litter gto the 04 by a half a car.

Well as we all know it takes a driver to put down good times and even a better driver to do so in a rwd car with stock tires.


Dragtimes.com has a bunch of them running mid to high 13's stock.

as a side note, wheel weights really do make a difference. i had some awesome 13lb kosei k1 15x7s on my old E30 and they made a really noticeable difference in acceleration v. stock. and i think the tires were about 5% smaller in diameter, adding to accel.

They are not amazingly fast out of the box... you guys read to much into numbers.. drive one, you'll feel the same way. FWIW I also walked the same stock Z in my 1.8T GTI without contest... revo stg 2, turbo back, 4 bar FPR, Turbo inlet pipe, Samco DV, GHL CAI, rocking 18" BBS RC's...

we have lost moderators and members that discourage strreet racing posts and other threads of equal and lesser value.

i see more and more kids posting that can now afford the B5. who feel like everyone on the internet must be nice, and shouldnt hurt their feelings.

Guys like Mr Racer here fail to realize you get posts you like, and ones you dont.

street racing threads tend to get more of the latter, as searching would show, most all street racing threads end in similar ways.

threads about how fast you went while racing on public roads are not what makes this a great community

If its stock.. expect anwhere between a low 15 sec pass to a mid 14 second pass.. Should be close, but if you get a jump early ( 60 ft ) you can hold him the rest of the race. You can also race a G35.. have fun there also.

I do race my S, and had raced my GTI on many an occasion..

I've lost to a hyundia in my S4.. on the street... and it goes low 13's in the 1/4..

But I've taken down a Saleen Mustang in my 1.8T at the track... Epping NH, FWIW.

who cares really @ the end of the day... be safe, have fun, drink beer.

I was at the track last Friday running sick 14.9@92 in my S... I lost all but 1 race.. I have a vacuum leak... If any of you guys make trips up there, let me know, I'll say hi and ask you to line em up! If you wanna race a Z... Let me know also, have a friend with one.. hence my previous comments.

we have lost moderators and members that discourage strreet racing posts and other threads of equal and lesser value.

i see more and more kids posting that can now afford the B5. who feel like everyone on the internet must be nice, and shouldnt hurt their feelings.

Guys like Mr Racer here fail to realize you get posts you like, and ones you dont.

street racing threads tend to get more of the latter, as searching would show, most all street racing threads end in similar ways.

threads about how fast you went while racing on public roads are not what makes this a great community

i completely agree here...the demographics of the B5 have changed dramatically in the last year or 2...its getting crazy. even locally i see more audi's rolling around with younger people driving them and it drives me nuts haha.

My $.02 is keep the "street racing" stories to yourself, because they just cause a big fit on the forums.

Maybe the Z started in 6th gear and didn't downshift.

rob that mid morning bump was hilarious!

i so remember when we weren't allowed to post street racing threads....times have changed....and so does the crowd and when people don't believe it....if you post it...prepare to defend yourself.

if anyone knows anyone knows me, they know i'm good for a story about once a month or so, i attribute marc (11secS4) for paving the way for me to do such a thing. i knew it was looked down upon. and as a n00b...i would never think to post up stories of street racing....just helping out the community. i guess once people get to know you, then you wont get harrassed as much.

i myself have seen plenty of low 14s or high 13 350z's around here. stock. so modded ones run the same times. and thats really the drivers problem the car has the potential and its really up to the driver to unlock it. my friend G35 which is heavier runs 14.03 @ 103 last time he ran. that is with heavy 19's with 275s out back. JWT pop charger, plenum, technosquare reflash, y-pipes and mid pipe. he should be running better than that...

A 5 year old could tell the difference between a 280z and a new 350z.

Hahaha who are you kidding? Your son could tell the difference between a 280z and a 350z in the dark with his eyes closed!

gti or jetta, people run high 12's, low 13's on supercharged mk2 VR's while having a spinnfest. At least thats how it goes down in the PNDub

i was driving my brothers evo on the parkway in my spool peak in 5th and there was a new wrx beside me. we went,and he was prob in third and i pulled on him then,lol. he was prob. saying to himself"oh man i just held that modded evo" in his stock REX,but in reality if i was in third it would have been shameful.

Wierd stuff happens. I got smoked in the S4 by a rusty Civic DX hatch on what looked like 13" steel wheels. No crazy exhaust noise or anything. That little sucker pulled. The dude was grinning so wide his ears were wet.

QFT. Looks can be deceiving. I pulled up to a shitty looking integra. 8 different colors of primer, etc and he kicked my ass. I mean, walked me the whole time.

The S4 was on it's maiden voyage with under 1000 miles so it was half throttle and 5k rpms max. The dude thought we were racing and was seriously pumped. He kept looking back over his shoulder and looked hysterically happy when we met at the next light. A second gear start and a straight WOT pull to 60 left him seriously confused. Poor little ego.

And now you know.... the rest of the story. [:p]

oh yeha, he forgot to factor in his pass weights in his weight ratio calculations.

thats at least an extra 300 lbs. cause i know this kid rides with fat bitches.


200hp FWD 3150lbs
vs.
287hp RWD 3400lbs

oh, now i see. you definitely walked him terribly, he probably already sold his car.

thank you for showing us all how insecure you are.

i think you and a4fann should take your sex elsewhere, and then go cry together

Time to lock this fiasco. I let it go so everyone's feelings on this sort of topic became known. No real surprises here.
