Ok so lets keep this on a respectful level and not let it get out of hand like the one that got locked earlier today.

I'll start, today on my way home from work I was cruising the hwy just relaxing when it looked to be a 90's model civic came racing up next to me and was eyeing my car for a good while. So I politely rolled down my window and winked (no homo). It seemed to upset him so he tried to take off fast. I could tell he had his foot to the floor board by the way the motor sounded. I gave the ST part throttle and stayed right beside him lmao his face was priceless. I then went WOT and left the ricer in the rear view.

Lets try to keep the thread full of stories.
Now knock yourselves out!!

Some sort of blacked out, new Mopar muscle car looking thing that looked huge tried to ace me out on the right lane going up a long hill. I beat him to the top, where I had to exit on the right. I got a dirty look, and judging by all the noise he made, he was going for it. I barely broke a sweat. Didn't even go WOT.

Nice kills guys. My neighbor has a GT500 2012 model and was jokingly asking me to let him know when I was out cruising so we can run. The thing is a complete monster. I've seen him dodging traffic going to work in the morning. I hear him before I see him lol

I mentioned in another topic, but my work buddy bought a new WRX, and I've been having a bit of fun with him. Not trying to start another ST vs. WRK thread, but I've done quite well.

I see a guy in a newer BMW 325 almost every morning on the way to work. We play a bit, and I come out ahead. I don't know my BMW's so I'm not sure if he's supposed to be fast, or not. But he smiles and we head on our way, after a nice long staightaway getting on to 599 in south Seattle.

Hey everyone I made it!

Here is my contribution from the last thread:
Now the party can begin. Lol

That vid was nice. The only thing that I've really had fun running against was a modded 350z. I ended up beating him by a half to a whole car length. I was surprised of the outcome. I was/am tuned.

My car's an auto. I thought I'd hate it...but it's actually a lot of fun, especially with a 6 spd. Now I'm just waiting for a tune.

I want to run something but nobody will. I tried to catch up to a late 90s Mustang today in the truck but he turned before I got my shot.

350z's will be a nice matchup for our cars! They have about the same trap speeds

What car are you referring to?

And yes it seems the area I live this is no "cool" cars to run against. Depressing at times. Lol

Yeah my mom has a 2007 infiniti G35 so I was aware of what the motor specs were in his 350z since they share the same 3.5l. They feel so fast but I think it might be because of the rwd.

I've got a 2011 mustang.

If I lived in Ft. Worth and not 15 miles out I might get more bites...but I never seemed to have trouble in the srt4 or GTO.

Some guy in a RAV4 tried racing me from the light was kinda funny. Wasen't evn going hard out he kept looking over thought I was trying about 35 mph i decided to go into 3rd and reamed next light caught us he pulled up next to me and had a VERY confused look on his face. It was some young kid sounded like it had a cod air and mild exhaust or just an exhaust leak lol. Not really anything special bout bout the closest thing to a race I've had in a while lol. Not many sporty cars around where I live a bunch of WRX driven by old people who can't afford a Corvette and a FEw STI's with D-Bag Fan boy drivers.

Really depends on the year and mods. The 07-08 350Z come with the 306hp VQ35HRs (7600rpm redline) and they run low to mid 13s @104-106mph stock, depending on if it's an auto or 6MT. The best stock 07-08 Z ran a [email protected] The 03-06 Zs with the 287hp-298hp VQ35DE and VQ35DE "Revup" motors typically do [email protected] depending on transmission. The best stock run to date was a [email protected] With very basic bolt-ons, you can easily shed about .3-.4 seconds and gain ~3mph. It is terribly easy to any 03-08 Z into the 12s with bolt-ons. The 09+ 370zs are different cars all together. Many have gone 12s with the 7 speed auto cars being the quickest.
