370z slow?

My brother shit on a 370z in my sr 240 on the hwy. So I passed it off as they had no top end. Well I shit on one from like a 20 roll when he took off first. Are they slow or do you think it was shitty drivers both times

Light flywheel basically. I have a s14 sr in a s13. Stock boost, walbro fp, fmic, but the only thing that really helps performance wise is the flywheel

I've heard people in low boost ka-t's beating them from a roll. ive driven a couple different 370 and 350. Definitely more power than the 350, I wouldn't say they are slow. But they aren't stupid fast either. What you'd expect from a stock 6 cylinder.

Chuck Its up in the air
370z - 3,232 pounds (275-300 WHP) 11.75- 10.77 lbs per HP.
240sx - 2,698 lb (220 whp?) 12.26 lbs per HP

If in theory your making 240 to the wheels , you would rate in at 11.24 lbs per HP.. so you would be as quick or maybe even faster, depending on gear acceleration, and driver weight.

My brother had a 490whp mazdaspeed 3, so I dont even consider my car fast. Its definitly quick, but spending all that money I would expect the z's to be fast. I would love to have one, im not hating I just figured they would have more guts

Lol @ "spending all that money".

I think my 350 is faster than a stockish sr swaped 240 well it feels like it at least I'd like to try it out sometime. Either way it has plenty of power for what I need it for and is reliable, comfortable and the hood rats dig it.

Preston your 2jz 240 couldn't take a 2011 stock Mustang! Hell the new Camaro and or Challenger can't either! Plus they are more expensive!

The problem with these new cars is they are so heavy! The 370z weigh to much and doesn't make enough power for the weight! Our 240's are somewhat fast because a Turbo KA or a SR20 can make 240whp and they can run with these expensive cars! Hell a Honda EG with a K swap is good for about high 12's to low 13's in stock form, because there cars only weigh 2300lbs.

its actually more expensive than a V8 mustang which runs 12's stock.

12's is fast. anybody who says different is a moron.

With a pro driver they might run 12's with slicks and cool ambient temps. For the average driver on street tires, plus this being the real world and not just racing on paper, low 13's is acceptable.

BTW, 12's aren't fast. Ask anybody who has ever driven a car that's capable of 10's, and even mid 11's are slow. I know from experience.

BTW allan, I never said my 240 could do anything, but theres another car in the same yard that would

actually, for a street car. 12's are fast. comparing it to a STRICTLY drag race car is stupid. a street car stock running 12's compared to a strictly drag driven car doing 10s with a lot of time work and effort put into it. shutup preston you just want to argue with everything...and your car still sucks

So......


I would love to see a stock car run 12's. So far the fastest stock car I've seen is a 2012 5.0 mustang run 13.80's. That's a 6 spd car too. That's bone stock, not even a k&n air filter

Also, there's a member here who daily drives a 10 second car.

oh, i know what fast is. i guess i'm just not stupid enough to forget that being fast doesn't mean the fastest thing in the world.

I own a built 350 and a stock s14 with an s15 sr in it, and in no way will my z keep up... z has way more torque, but no boost...

Well actually there was one faster than that. This '11 5.0 is bone stock (including the air filter) with only a evolution performance tune. 405whp/375wtq. On the stock 19's and tires it comes with they cut a 12.61. On slicks they got an 11.82. stock suspension, stock untouched motor.

No doubt its possible, I'm just telling u what I've been seeing out at the track the last few wks ive been working there. The ones local would prolly run waaaaay better with cooler ambient temps and a whole lot less humidity.
