The other ride (Z)

I mentioned the Z in my other post. Figured I'd post it too. The murano is there too, but who cares about that

2006 Touring. Bought it new in 06. Hope to keep it till the wheels fall off.

Yeah, it's a 350z. It's the 300hp rev-up engine. 2005 was 287hp, 2007 was 305. I guess I got the middle man.

Isn't that how it always is lol. You buy one thing now next year they change the sucker. You haven't installed any performance mods? Seems like it is better suited for interior/performance mods than exterior mods.

Re: The other ride (Z)

have you ever turned the traction control off? Some do it the first time in their first time autoX thinking they are big shots in their shiny car
They come back almost crying and never turn it off afterwards

After bashing it, i need to complement - nice car! :P

Re: The other ride (Z)

Try turning off the traction control on an M5, god damn that was scary even driving normally.

I'm a big fan of 350zs, a couple of my friends own them, definitely one of the three cars I'd consider buying when my civic dies.

Yeh, i would guess M5 is luxury type with a stupidy engine under the hood... Agree they should be scarier than the Z...

Re: The other ride (Z)

Yeah I turn off VDC quite often. I don't really street race, but I get on it once in a while. You go from 1st to 2nd at max RPM with it on and it bogs down. Pretty annoying. I've left it stock too. I bought it with the NISMO exhaust from the dealer. Makes it sound much nicer IMO. Don't know if I'll ever decide to boost it. I'd like to, but I like it not detonating on me on some random Tuesday.

Re: The other ride (Z)

You guys are spoiled. lol. I drove for years before traction control was readily available, you just learn like anything else. It's just like cellphones- what the hell did we do before we had 'em. lol.

Actually, non... At these power levels, having had only diven with traction control, the guys were REALLY about to cry when they came out of the car... They did not have an idea what the car is actually capable of, including kicking the crap out of some oblivious drivers that thought they were big shots with the electronic control on... Pity...
