Well the car was made to go to the track with and leave without having to trailer a car there. Well regardless the 1LE is more track orientated than te 370

I rev the piss out of my car at camaros all day long and then dust them!!!! Haha, just kidding, i didn't buy my car to drag race.

Listen, even though the guy might have been an @ss, you never know what work he has done to his car. Your car is essentially stock so if this guy has FBO, Tune, maybe even FI, you may be looking at more than you can handle.

Most G37 owners put on an exhaust and wheels and they are done. Essentially they mod for show. However, most 370z owners mod for performance. They are much lighter than your camaro and even though the VQ does not respond as well as LS engines do to mods, he still could be pushing approx 310-320 rwhp with FBO and tune. FI will put them to a minimum of 400 rwhp. Anyway, don't underestimate your opponent and most of all have fun. A car guy is a car guy so do the race and let us know how it goes.

BTW, little rascals wave is a little gay lol. I like the little rascals but I would never do that to a another random guy, he may have thought you were hitting on him.


Edit: WOw, this thread is old. Looks like the guy was an @ss hat and didn't show up. 370z = win on road/autocross track. Camaro SS = win on 1/4 mile track. This has all been debated to death.

The camaro SS with the 1LE package which = the price of the 370 will leave the 370 on everything track,drag,auto cross, street(if people are down for that) it's a nice car but way overpriced for its performance

+1 sold my heavily modded G35 Coupe for this car.

While stylish and fun to drive even modded to 375rwhp it was still pretty slow.

OP doesn't have 1LE therefore it's not part of the discussion. We all know that the OP is stock but nobody knew what the other driver had.

Hence why I wrote Camaro SS NOT Camaro SS 1LE.

I think the SS beats the 370 still around a road course without the 1LE

No way in hell.

Nürburgring
2010 Camaro SS: 8:20 (Chevrolet Test Team)
2010 Nissan 370z: 8:11.28 (Best Motoring)

Looks like the 370z is faster on a roadrace/autocross than the camaro SS.

Really? Care to provide a reference for that time? The 350Z ran an 8:26. I am unaware of an official 370Z run.

The only head-to-head, same day comparison I've seen is at VIR from the 2009 Lightning Lap.

2010 Camaro SS: 3:09.5, peak 135.9 mph
2010 370Z NISMO: 3:12.0, peak 127.2 mph

Not to mention the NISMO ended up in the wall after its not-made-for-the-track $hitty brakes gave out.

I don't understand how they could have a lap time for the 370z when it crashed but it took a bit of digging and this is where I found the time for the 370z.

http://strikeengine.com/lap-times-1457

Time for the 2010 Camaro SS is pretty standard.

If thats a terrible source than i'm sorry about that. Maybe I am wrong but I would rather find an actual answer rather than listen to what people come up with on the forums.

For the record my dad built a track ready road race 67 camaro and my uncle has a 69 x22 camaro so chevrolet and camaros run in the family lol. So i'm not trying to hate on anyones car. I've grown up loving camaros. I actually have a halloween picture from when I was a kid holding up the headers to my dads car haha. Love that pic.

Neither is stock but beware of the Z car cuz its a very nasty animal. A stock NISMO eats my dust. Hate to deflate your ego. I've had several new Camaros, TAs, Mustangs, Vettes and others. Love my Camaro but the Z is my fav daily driver. The Z is built better inside/out and is a track car not a muscle car for the drag strip. Thats why I own both since they serve two different purposes. Concern yourself with comparing your counterparts. Mustang and Challenger!
One post to talk about "crushing" someone elses stock car in a race.

The source you cite list "estimated" times. There is no official run for the 370z. The time set at VIR was its best lap before the crash. They do several laps with each car. The 370z is a fine little car but out-muscled by the SS.

i owned a 350Z and test drove a 370Z when they came out. didnt really feel faster, just a tad bit quicker. i liked the interior but wasnt worth the money because the exterior wasnt a major jump as far as looks. i traded my Z in for a camaro 2SS manual and this car is waaaaay faster than both Zs. im sure the camaro would beat both around the track but i will admit i think the handling on the Z was way better. My dad lives on a windy road(best part of giving him a visit). the camaro just doesnt hug the corners like the Z did no matter how hard i drive it. maybe its just me. my dad doesnt like the camaro, for the same reason and he's an even better driver than i am.

Listen, even though the guy might have been an @ss, you never know what work he has done to his car. Your car is essentially stock so if this guy has FBO, Tune, maybe even FI, you may be looking at more than you can handle.

Most G37 owners put on an exhaust and wheels and they are done. Essentially they mod for show. However, most 370z owners mod for performance. They are much lighter than your camaro and even though the VQ does not respond as well as LS engines do to mods, he still could be pushing approx 310-320 rwhp with FBO and tune. FI will put them to a minimum of 400 rwhp. Anyway, don't underestimate your opponent and most of all have fun. A car guy is a car guy so do the race and let us know how it goes.

BTW, little rascals wave is a little gay lol. I like the little rascals but I would never do that to a another random guy, he may have thought you were hitting on him.


Edit: WOw, this thread is old. Looks like the guy was an @ss hat and didn't show up. 370z = win on road/autocross track. Camaro SS = win on 1/4 mile track. This has all been debated to death.
VQ37 is awesome engine. Here's a stock G37 sedan is 13.09 @ 106.3. 300 lb lighter 370Z with bolt ons and tune + good driver is solid 12 second car.

I got along side of him and gave him the old high sign from the little rascals and he told me I was a little gay for that. I laughed in his face and told him he was gay and so was his car and if he wanted to see how much his car could really do I would be more then happy to meet him at the local dragstrip.
He said he would tonight and I am definatly going tonight so I just want to get an idea of how fast these cars are. my best run so far is a 12.8 109.9 mph. But I also just put in the new MAF sensor a couple days ago and feel it pulls harder then it did before. Whats your opinions, and of course I dont mind getting beat if thats how it turns out but he didnt look like he was much of a driver in his traffic driving so I might be the better driver in this case.
What strip you going to? Ever since I came back home, I've been looking for a good drag strip.
