The launch problem was fixed with the new ones, quaife LSDs. And i was killing 350 Zs when i was stock, but now, i dont really try it gets boring. I go the speed limit a lot, rarely do i open it up.

Since when does anyone compare cars with equal sized engines...and as far as I know no other car manufacturer uses an engine with the same displacement as the Maxima's.  That logic is flawed and pointless to use.  Maximas are not race cars; not by a long shot.  For some a car made the most awesome manufacturer ever, twin-turbo 350Zs certainly have a hard time getting out of the 11s.  

Also, SRT-4s are front-wheel drive and get terrible launches.  The last time I checked a 350Z takes an SRT-4 out of the hole and keeps on pulling (stock for stock of course) so I'm not sure what kind of drivers you were going up aginst DBibeau.

^Personally, I think the only reason a stock SRT-4 would dust a stock 350Z would be from the start.....because the SR-4 is all-wheel drive(as far as I knew), which is known for quick launches, while the 350Z is rear-wheel drive(to my knowledge), which is known for burning out off the start and "getting sideways".

Basically, I think the SRT-4 would inherantly be faster than the 350Z on the launch and first hundred feet or so, then the 350Z SHOULD gradually start gaining on the SRT-4.

Either way, I like the SRT-4 because it doesn't try and sell people with huge displacement numbers or try and be anything it's not.

Just 220 or so HP done right! All-wheel drive really does make for a safer car, IMHO.

Exactly, when my SRT4 was stock, i was beating 350Zs no problem. Its about tourque, if you have a lot of tourque, you will get off the line beutifuly if you know how to launch your car.

It's all about torque, baby.

Those cars are nice, and for some people they sem inexpensive, but $20,000 on a car is just too much for me right now!

I'm more in the sub-$5,000 range.

I drive a '95 Nissan Altima, and people never believe me that the car weighs over 4,000 pounds! Everyone think Nissans are lightweight rice-rockets like Hondas, but the fact is they weigh 1000's of pounds more.

For the price, I think it's hard to beat the 1990 and newer 240sx's....my friend bought a 1995 240sx SE for $4500 about 8 months ago, and I really think it's hard to find a car this great for that cheap!

It's only a 2.4l 4cyl, pushing about 155HP and 160 torque, and the car weighs over 3000 pounds with no driver/passengers, so it's not a "neck-snapper", but it is rear-wheel drive so you can do some crazy manuevers(like roasting them and doing a 180 on a dime), plus you save a bunch of gas.

When the engine takes a dump, just swap it out with the japanese version of the engine(2.0l turbo'd), which pushes 200HP and has about the best aftermarket customization options you can find....all told you can set up a 400+HP/torque Nissan 240SX for well under $10,000 total.

I would never have thought a car like that would be so much fun until I drove one! Now I want one.

It's funny, because I never thought I would be into "rice-rockets"!

His car is beutiful, very fast, you step on the gas and power just kinda come out of nowhere, you dont have to downshift to get lots of power or torque. You can basicaly just live in the powerband all day if you want to and have plenty of power just sitting there, enough to scare you.

how is a nissan maxima such a great car? my parents own one but were

I don't know what year your folks' car is, but I know the more
recent Maxima has a V6 engine that has won the "Best V6 in Class" like
almost 10 years in a row.



My friend owns a 1995 and it's a sick car.



Also, I didn't know that the camaro was the same car. Good to know.



And not to be skeptical, but I find it hard to believe that a 350 8-cyl is getting that good gas milage.



Not that it matters, the car is not even made for that and it's
still sick...I'm sure it's real aerodynamic and gets really good MPG,
but if it actually gets 30+MPG that is honestly crazy stuff!*Edit* Even with a 6-speed, I don't think you're gonna get 30+MPG on a 350 V8



Having a six-speed does wonders to gas mileage.

and Zesty he paid 12thousand and it get an unblevable 30 miles to
the gallon highway driving. its got a 350 v-8 and we think a hearst
shifter in it.






Wow that much for an LT1?  How many miles did it have on it?
