SS/SC vs 350z track edition

i was wondering how well i would stack up against a 06 350z track edition
my freind has one and is talking shit about my balt. his best time at the track was a 14.1 so i think he would take me. i do plan on haveing a cai b4 i race him do you think that will be enough to beat him

Drivers race. Get a good launch. I got challenged by a 350Z several months back and beat him because of my launch.

from a roll they're very close. i raced one when i was on spring break in fl on i-4 (i think) he jumped since he did the beaping and took half a car before i got on the throttle and slowly realed him in.

no problem on getting him.. I raced one .
that was a nismo edition, or maybe it was fake badging. either way it was dead even until about 110 then he was gone.

Either way he has no right to talk crap about your balt and heres why

1) You pulled a 14.1 on a stock ss/sc which according to all the timeslips i have seen is a GREAT run

2) His car retails for at least 10 grand more than your car BEFORE taxes.

It is you my friend, that should be talking smack. Not only can you sit 5 people and get better gas mileage, you are as fast if not faster than him. =)

Oki.. Im gonna put on my flame suit and stir the pot here.

I have driven both. I was a die hard Cavalier fanatic, and thus it rolled over into Cobalt SS scene. I test drove several Cobalt ss. Drove them hard, and was dead set on getting one and trading in my 03 cavi.
Saw a Z at hin and decided I would take one out and test drive it. I test drove several different option packages, and its no comparison ya'll. Z is more responsive throughout the entire powerband.
It made a convert out of me. Currently, I can walk out of a dealership with a baseline Z for 28k. (Which Im getting when I get home from Afghan) Thats certainly not 10k more than a Cobalt SS, although a touring would be right at that amount. Regardless though, there are no power differences between a Base and a Touring or even a Track edition. Only difference is whether or not the Z is MT or AT.

I have love for the Cobalt, and I respect anyone that is a true car enthusiast, but I think youre going to get smoked. Unless hes just a crappy driver and/or youre really exceptional.

To be fair, you definately got it right about the gas mileage and passenger ability, but I guess thats the price you pay to have a true sports car. **wink**
