You thought wrong my friend lol 350Z with a decent driver will out perform a RX8. I ran a couple in the G5(Straight and twisties) and didnt have a problem with them.

It's not "fast" by any means it'll get out of it's own way but not anything special under the hood. It was made for the twisty's and that's why I bought it Wink

well shit, nothing is "fast" apparently on this site. everone with a fast car says its "slow" i guess that makes rx8s and mustangs "snail like" even though i like to think they are decent but i guess i just over estimated the speed of them, although im sure they handle like a dream Cool

It's pretty good in the twisty's... Hopefully by the time I get it paid off Henson performance will have the lsx conversion finished to give it the power it deserved from the factory...

If this wind ever dies down, I might be able to wash the Bauce and make a showing. This will be the last time the car goes out with hail damage. Wind is ridiculous, I've sprayed the car off the last two days in a row just to keep the grit from sticking the car and it comes back within a few hours.



Do they have a rain date scheduled for the cruise, in case we get some of the 60% chance tomorrow?
