New Track Toy, need Opinions from my RX8 Brethern
Well, after much hemming and hawing, I was content to just mod my old mustang and wait on the STi, till I saw this.


It is the new Nismo 350Z. Watch the quick vid, but for quick specs, SEAM-WELDED Chassis from the factory, built by their racing division, just a tick of the Elise through the cones, stock, and the motor is bullet-proof. Man, I stopped, was looking at the car, and the sales guy begged me to drive it, as no one had been allowed (I am friends with the owner). So, I took it out to top off the tank, and just fell in love. The car is SO solid, and handles like it is on rails, even stock. I would hate to see this thing at the race track with some grippier R compounds. I am sure it may be as quick as my Evo was, well, maybe not , it is down 40whp, but still it would be a great car to build up. Not to mention, they are only making 1500 of them.

Am I crazy? Is this a car a 34year old should own? (Note Vid Below)

I think it's great. Nimble, solid, reliable, fun to drive. What else would you like? I think it's a wonderful car. I just want to make sure I get a ride.

It is so long since I have been on a track, I will have to run in HPDE 1.

at 34, if you can make it work with your kid, why not. my dad is almost 60, and he wants the black one.

Neat car, not a Nissan fan but this one might do the trick. Stop talking about it and pull the trigger on something. I thought my girlfriend took forever to make a decision at dinner but Geeez Dave, you got her beat!
