    I can't speak for others, but the 350z folks are upset. No one knew of this (including my350z staff). They originally posted in a seldom used 370z section on there looking for a 370........on a 350z site mind you. The mustang was apparently a seasoned solo2 guy on hoosiers, etc (~320whp). On the other hand....the z was put together by an unknown in 4 days with very little mods (~260whp), crap suspension, and worn street tires. Sucks because it really was a poor representation of the community as a whole. There are several talented and capable 350z drivers/cars in So Cal..........Had they done it on the east coast I'd of been glad to oblige . I think it was a cool idea, but poorly executed.

    Apparently the producers were eggin' them on to be confrontational, etc. No excuse though.....dude was a tool. Hes done little better to improve that image on the long discussion thread about this on my350 as well.

    Sure,

    http://my350z.com/forum/the-lounge-o...responses.html

    The car owners SN is Barbade. I stopped posting in there though.....turned into a big e-racing thread. 99% of the people in that thread *****ing don't have the car or talent to do any better, but sure think they do. Unfortunately the faction of racers on my350 is quite small in comparison to say the s2k community. I come from the drag racing world and much the novice on the road course my self.......I've seen the light though .

    I was guilty as well, but I eased up as others piled on....it was bad enough for his company too be so badly beaten. Also, he wasn't the driver (tool). Not a lot of forum commodore there too be sure. Most were just upset too see the forum so poorly represented.......it wouldn't of mattered how senior the member had the results been the same......me included I imagine.

    That would interesting! I'd get my butt whooped by just about everyone here lol. Maybe hold my own in the drag racing part, but not in the others I'd imagine.

    It's ok, we'd all be on the same team. I'm sure you could do better than most of the drivers on that Forum Wars link anyway

    this reminds me of Race Wars. i remember seeing jesse's '97 volkswagon jetta vs. johnny tran's '00 s2k, and jesse saying before the race, "It's all right. I ain't losing. This fool is running a Honda 2000."

    Drag racing... bleh. They should take it to a "real" race track!

    The only thing most people know about or care about is drag racing and 0-60 times. This is the perfect opportunity to show what different cars are capable of on a race track! To show people what good handling can do and that horsepower is NOT king, or the only thing that matters.
