1SS (L99) vs G35...

You all know the story... friend has a G35 coupe, thinks the weight difference will overcome the power difference (3600lbs vs 100hp)

Personally, I think my SS takes the G35 coupe and has its way with it... but since I still only have around 250 miles on the car, I dont know it THAT well yet so I will defer to the authorities.

Do I bet a steak dinner on it?

I wont be racing anytime soon (local drag strip fires up here before too long though), with so few miles on the car I have only hit WOT a couple of times for very brief shots and want to break in the engine before going balls out for any real amount of time.

Stock for stock you would walk all over a g35.

Camaro v6's vs a g35 would be a "close" race

The G35 is around 14 sec 1/4mi, the SS is about 13 sec.
So your SS should beat the G35 by about the same margin that a 12 second car would beat the SS (like a Z06 corvette).

Your car is definitely faster - the question is whether or not you are faster (but you would have to screw up pretty bad and the race would have to be really short)

For reference a good estimate on weight vs. horsepower is 100lbs equals 10HP. So he has a 300lb advantage which roughly equivilates to 30HP. You have a 100HP advantage with his +30HP advantage because of weight you still have 70HP over him. Your friend is crazy, is he still in school? If not he should sign up for night school and get refreshed in mathmatics 101.

Dude, race him and rape him.

I raced my friend that has a stock G35 (I have a V6 Camaro) and I was able to beat him.

I am thinking I will start down-talking the SS for a week or two... bait him into doing something stupid... look for the "i bet you $100.00 I can take you" ... then set the bet and let the thrashing begin.

with the L99/A6 in sport mode with launch control, I am not sure how anyone could be a bad straight line racer... maybe just horrible reaction times...

Rape, the G35 is just a fatter, slower 350Z. I had a 2006 350Z and it was a joke compared to the SS...

Vs a G35 the SS has this one without a problem.

But @ green man,

The 2006 350z was also a joke compared to the other model year 350z's; it is known as probably the slowest model year for the Z. Despite the bump in HP, this model year shows up only a few times on the top 25 times (towards the very end) for stock or NA, and even the 03-04's consistently ran faster than the 06, with less HP. I don't blame you for 'feeling the difference,' it's completely accurate and even I don't understand why this year seemed to be so slow for the 350z

The 07-08 350z's run mid to high 13's with some hitting 13.1's stock, but this newer engine (the VQ35HR) never made it's way into the G35 coupe, only the 2007+ G35 sedan.

They gave up torque for HP in 2006 with the shitty rev-up version I had, 300hp/260tq. In 2007 they got their sh!t together with the HR which was light years ahead of the rev-up in performace, 306hp/268tq.

So, 2003-2005 had the original 287hp/274tq vq, except for the 2005 track and 2005 35th anniversary which got the rev-up.

Yes, i ended up with the lamest VQ motor of the bunch, still a great car that served me well for 4 years of completely headache free ownership.

For sure bet the farm if he is stock. I think even asleep at the line and a bad launch you could still take him. BTW most engine builders say to break your car in hard so drive it like you stole it for the first 1000 miles and change the oil at 500mi and then at 1500 mi after that you are good.

He'd need to be extremely light in order to make up for the lack of power, 200-250 lbs just isn't enough to compensate for being down by 25% on power. It would be fairly close if you had a V6 though.

not really. A vortech with 8lbs will make about 380rwhp. At that point it will be a driver's race.
