Slk 300 vs 2006 350z
Ok, so it was me versus my buddy's friend's 2006 350Z. His car is a 6 speed manual, coupe and the only mods he has done that I know of is an exhaust system. He claims to have 255 rwhp if that sounds right. We were on a side road with two lanes around 11pm, no other cars, well lit and reasonably wide.
We started from a 20 roll up to around 80, I forgot the exact speed we shut down at, but it wasn't in the triple digits. We did two runs and he slowly walked me both times, but only up to 1 car length, then we shut down. Both his and my car had a passenger and my car was loaded to capacity with luggage. Does this sound about right or could I have done better? Either way, i'm pleased with the way my car performed against a car with more power!
