I couldn't believe this, but afterwards I found out why. A friend of mine has a 92 ish nissan maxima 6 cly 182 hp. We were driving back from dinner some where. He had 3 ppl total in his car and I had a girl riding with me in mine (1995 318i 5spd) We stop at a light down the street from the turn in to our college. He shifts to neutral and revs. I laugh. I didn't know it was a V-6. Light turn green, I opt to save my clutch and not launch. We're about even on take off after we cleared intersection he was inching ahead. We got up to about 55-60 mph and the turn is coming up. He's not complety past me. He hits breaks I hit breaks and downshift anticipating him to hit the gas right after to get over. Exactly what he thought to do. I got off the breaks when he did and floored again, so I got the last laugh as he missed the turn. Best part I finally found out that my ABS does work! Well 42 hp defficency does kinda hurt, but not too bad given the power difference.

suprislingly, my brakes arent that big( I know that), but they actually do good(89 325iS), they are sorta small, both front and back discs, but dont fade and are pretty good. my brakes definetly have an advantage over some other cars.

Hell they are so hard to clean, I end up leaving cleaning solvent on there too long and it eats the damn paint off down to the primer, I need to re-paint and put some wheel-wax on them.

At first I thought I was gonna miss the turn as well. We hit the brakes and the accelerated again, he stayed hard on the gas so did I so he couldn't get over, then once I knew his brakes wouldn't let him make the turn I went on mine basically full. Luckily I had just replaced front pads, still it's a horrible turn because there is a huge dip you can really scrape your car on where the drive way starts... luckily thx to the brakes I avoided that too. So when he got back we were both laughing. Him because he "beat" a BMW in a straight line and me because I was able to out brake him and make him drive 1/4 mile down the street to turn around. All depends on what's most important to you I guess.

I am pretty sure that 92 Maxima would smoke 318I in straight line but 92 maxima is horible in corners, it handles like a boat.
