the 350z is a roadrace car...and its great. Period. You think the car has no soul? You think its too heavy? Track the thing. You talking about a sunday cruise?...ah i could care less about a cruise. Even on the auto-x the car performs..i remove all floormats and spare and jack....on track days..the passenger seat as well...the car feels very nimble...tons of grip even on street tires (compared to my older Zs)..and just enough power to get on it hard coming out of corners. Slap on some slicks...and oh man..hold on. Then i swap my wheels, slap in my street brake pads, and replace the interior components i took off.....back to daily driver baby. All of this is my opinion based on my experiences. This car has great abilities that no one gives it credit for(well guys at the events i go to give it credit cuz they ahve seen it first hand). It is a sports car and now that ive gotten it on the race track..it can hold the Z badge proudly imo as it passes a porsche...it happens.
