FD vs 300zx

Not much of a kill, but I was on my way home from bball on a nice straight road and a 300zx came up behind me and it was obvious that he wanted to race. He went to pass me and we did a pull, I put a few cars on him from 60 to 100. Then I got beside him on the next run starting from about 50, I spun through 3rd, shift to 4th and spin through that at about 105. This was pretty scary to me cuz I don't usually spin in 4th at all, so I looked at my pfc and saw I hit 1.45 (20.6psi), that along with the 10c air temp gave me shloads of power. The 300zx wasn't turbo'd so it wasn't much of a race, but it was still fun.

Assuming all else is equal. :P
Generally, 9 times out of 10 boost > no boost, unless you're talking about some crazy n/a motor and a car with significant weight reduction.

Of course there are exceptions.

Fuggin .


And to the OP- why would you even post this in here? You know that most/all 300ZX's are looked at as slow "heavy" pigs on this forum.

Had a friend who had one back home, he got it to do low 12's after a lot of work but couldn't get it into the 11's. I just don't like the way they're shaped though, look kind of like a door wedge.
