Camaro V6 VS Nissan 350z

So who do you think will take it the win...basically me and my friends race three ways...drag, drift, and road courses. Which do you think will have the advantage in each of the three types of races?

I would guess the 350Z would win in any race against the V6 camaro, assuming equal drivers.

it should be no contest. The 350Z may have similar power and torque to the V6 Camaro but thats where the similarities end.

Shouldn't we be caomparing the 350Z to the SS? don't both have 0-60 in 4.7 seconds?

Thats the new 370Z, the 350 is a couple ticks slower.

Ah, my brain is completely fired today. Well as you pointed out then with similar power the weight advantage of the 350Z surely helps.

The 350z is 0-60 in about 5.5 on average

Well i guess with it being my daily driver i have a little bit of insight



The 350z can hit 5.1 the same way that the SS will likely be able to hit 4.5...


AKA. Most people are never going to get that out of the car. The 350z will hit 5.5 all day long, and with the right launch it will drop... just like the SS will likely hit 4.9 all day long and lower with the right launch.

i raced a base auto 350 z in my modded 2000 v6 5spd and we were pretty even from 60-110 multiple times. If anything i pulled a half car on him
my v6 only dynoed 206hp/225 torque

im sure the manuals are much faster though

how much does your car weigh?


The 350's are more weight than you'd imagine, 3400lbs and change. The new 370's are a good deal less.

The manual is a good half-second quicker to 60 though
