Should I be proud about beating an Infinity G35?

We did two passes at the track and I easily beat him twice. Is the G35 coupe worth getting excited over? By the way, raced an SS, you guys show no mercy.

Yeah, I'd be happy with the win even if I was in an SS! That car is no slouch
However, do you know what engine it had? That would make a huge difference in terms of respect points.

Yea you should be proud. Last I checked those cars were good for a high 13 to low 14...like a 13.9-14.1 bone stock. So you are probably a better driver than him.

Yep.

And OP, I'm sure you'll be told this soon enough, but you must have been racing one of the "slow" G35's. The "fast" G35's beat up on Camaro SS's (even though these "fast" G35's test in the 13.9 -14.1 range).

auto g35 coupes run mid 14's in decent conditions, 6 speed is low 14's with maybe 13.9.... bolt on g35 coupes get high 13's at best. They actually weigh more then the sedans due to the side impact crash beams.

Nice kill, the first car I raced and beat in my v6 6 speed accord(with paper tags still) was a g35 coupe(at the track of course)... they get so butt hurt lol.

Beating the infinity was defiantly a pleasure but racing the SS was the highlight of the night. That car is a beast. It was slightly modded. Exhaust and intake. But to hear the rumble of the exhaust before launch and the car as it power shifted through the gears was the icing on the cake. I love my V6 to death but next car black SS.

Don't worry about it. It's a not-so-inside joke; not directed at you. You'll figure it out pretty soon.

That would definitely be a win to be proud of. My very first race against the s model 4 dr g35 pulled on me with intake and exhaust and it was auto ran 14.1 against my 14.5. This was when I was bone stock on my v6. Good job.

Hey you won that's all that matters. Slow or fast g35 you won. Trying an SS was funny tho, but hey it was all in fun...add on some more mods buddy then try again.

G35 coupes in the last year they were made never made over 300hp. Good kill.

I haven't seen any stock g35s run 13s at our track. I've seen plenty of them. I have a few friends that have them too. One guy runs 14.5 I've had another guy run 14.3 stock. There maybe some better drivers out there but 13s aren't common in our track. My buddy ran his bone stock ss to a 13.2 yesterday. He just had to learn how to drive better.

I also own an 09 Infiniti G37 coupe 7 spd auto. The first gear is killer! And the trans will take it to redline before shifting impressed me that's why I bought it. Will jump down 3 gears if,you punch it at 80 mph. Yes you should be proud! If he got the jump on you all you would see is tail lights!

I also owned a G37 Coupe, but I had the 6MT Sport. Great cars.
