323 Vs 350z

Happened a few months ago but still wanted to share. I have a mountain road 1/2 mile from my house. Two actually one is steep mountain up/down hill and one is curvy canyon road. I went there once when I was bored and as I got to the canyon I caught up to the 350Z. Annoyed at his 20 mph speed in 30 mph zone I got on his bumper and flashed the lights to let me pass. Instead of getting off the road he slammed the gear down and floored it. I thought it would be nice to see what my 3 has against the Z so I dropped it into second. To my surprise I managed to stay on his bumper for the two miles or so untill suddenly he decided he needs to stop at the only stop sign on the road. I literaly missed him by maybe a foot and drove off.

Wasn't a very conclusive race but made me happy knowing that my little 323 can still kick some ass around corners. I'm sure he'd kill me on a straight but hey...there aint many of those on that road.

I don't know much about either car, but stock for stock a 350z would eat any e46 short of a M3 ... must have been a horrible driver.

Could've been but let me enjoy the dream where tiny little 323 can kick 350's ass. lol. It was a fun ride though.

Of course; I was just merely commenting. Always fun keeping up with cars that should be a lot faster in the hands of a good driver.

......and that's the point! I used to do this crap in a Civic---pick on people in nicer cars that don't know how to drive them. Now that I've upgraded to a bimmer I set my sights a little higher!

Roadracing is dangerous, but you can drive a Bimmer at 80% of its potential and still walk most of the cars you'll meet in the twisties!

my 330 kept up with a 350z (07' with the HF motor) through an uphill/downhill mountain climb.

Straight aways he would pull but otherwise kept up.
