Default Ran a G35 just now

i was out on the highway a bit out making a run for food for my starving family. when up from behind me came an older G35 slammed with the driver his buddy in the passsenger and a chick in the back seat. he pulled along side me and gave it a rev and took off i didnt bite til the second time he pulled along me at about 65, i heard him drop a gear and takeoff and pull about 3/4 a car i followed and punched it my tranny dropped into 2nd and stopped his pull the car pulled along side him about 85 and started pulling on him at about a half a car lenght on him i looked over my shoulder and waved by to him and contunied to pull about 3 cars up to about 120ish. when i had to brake due to traffic. he slowed and waved and we went on our ways

Funny thing is i sold one and was driving it just yesterday a 07 G35 Auto, terrible tranny. Too many dead spots, also wasnt really fast at all. I do admitt in black they do look nice and they sell really well. Im sure the manual is alot better. Good Kill Op.

Use to have a g37 6speed and they are fun and great driving cars. Don't have *****, but really nice fit and finish. Basically a 370z with a backseat and a couple hundred pounds Lol.

I bought a G35 Coupe in 2002. It had nice power for the time, and it got soo many looks at first. But now it's slow, and too many teenagers drive them.

Nice kill! G35's are one of those cars that are cool, but are getting a bad rap these days when everything makes 400 horsepower or bust.

this shouldnt be a surprise. In my old LGT(turbo AWD 4cyl) I used to pick on G35s all the time. Every guy who buys one thinks they are the fastest thing around cause they beat a few hondas once.

Nothing is funnier than the look a G35 owners face when a low blue family sedan passes him and continues on to about 4+ cars quickly... And then lift and let the little backfire off right into his window as you pass.

that just reminds me of another one i raced last summer, it might of been a g37, it was whites and said nismo skyline on the back, but it was no skyline, it had the boomerang syle tail lights....hell maybe it was a 370z, either way, he was racing a mazdaspeed 3 at the same time i jumped in and blew them both away lol.

They arent fast. My coworker has a G35 sedan with full exhaust and a cold air intake and a tune to raise the limiter to 8000. He wants to run me when i get my gears in/tune finished. Cant wait to embarrass him
