raced a g35 today

i was on my way home when i stopped to get gas to behold next pump over a g35 was getting gas also we jsut so happened to finish at the same time so we pulled out to the highway sametime. he immediatly revved up and passed me and then slowed down lookin to see if i was down. I figured what the hell dropped to second pull right up against him we were both doing about 50 when we looked over at each other and let go. had it bout even going into third then he was gone right after we hit about 60 had 3+ length i stopped after that he gained about 2+ cars on me to save on gas. We pulled at a red light and we started talking a bit found out he was stock except for a new exhuast which sounded awsome, i myself am completly stock so i knew he was gonna blow by me. after or brief talk commenting our cars we honk and parted ways nice race and nice driver no fly by's.

Those g35 are quick man!!!

Oh you bastard! lol jk. Nice cars they are. Stage 2 for us puts us at or a little ahead of them to 60 or the quarter. Good race. I would be honored to lose to them even though you see them everywhere, lol.

What I find interesting about this post is that all the Cobalt guys always claim their cars will pull low 14’s stock. The G35 Coupe runs low 14’s stock and the Sedan runs about high 14’s stock.

If the Cobalt runs low 14’s then how does a low 14-second car pull 3 lengths on it?? At the rate of travel down the track that would put the Cobalt at probably a high 14 or low 15 second run. That’s a far cry from a low 14.

Just thought I would add that to the discussion.

Would you quit magazine racing!

As per my experience this last season of racing (at my altitude) the balt is about 1/2 slower stock. However, on a huge breakout in my last race of the year I cut that down to .4 with me being on the brakes hard. It's thought that if I hadn't sandbagged I would have had a time very close to his since he wasn't gaining on me in his 3rd gear like he usually does.
