I raced a G35 coupe but...

I always thought they were a lot faster than an e36 m3. light turned green and i waited to see if he'd jup on it and he did. 2nd gear i pulled even and 3rd i pulled away.!? is that car that slow or am i just that fast. his was a manual, maybe it was a drivers race. anyone else ever raced a G35 coupe???

I pretty much piss excellence!

The driver probably wasn't racing you. That car is faster than the E36 m3.

KSE36M3 is on a distinguished road
G35's are fast cars but I'd imagine the E36 should take it in the end. Never driven either myself (hey...one of these days!) but I'd take the M3 by half a car length maybe? If you killed him that bad he probably wasn't a great driver haha.....but those are the funniest 'cause they're usually the guys with the biggest egos haha.

Sounds kinda like last weekend my buddy and I were cruising the Plaza here in KC in his family's 2002 TL and when we were heading home this guy and his wife pulled up next to us in a new loaner TL Type S. Somehow we demolished the guy out of the light ('02 TL's have 225 hp and the new type S has what? 270?)....he was trying too...could hear the engine rev as he accelerated. We laughed half way home but it was pretty obvious that it was simply a situation of the other guy not being a good driver...no way an 02 3.2 should beat, much less smoke a new Type S. It was def. fun though.

Oh. From your screen name, one could easily be mistaken that you drive an E36 M3.
