Re: z32tt vs dodge srt4

The Sti Is Alot Faster Than The Z32tt

13.3 In The Quarter And 4.6 0-60 Is Almost A Second Faster Than A Z32..... Its Awd And Its Handling Is Alot Better Than The Z.

Jealousy Runs Rampant In The Nissan Scene.... Btw: I Own A Datsun 280z And Have Owned 4, Yes 4 240sxs. All I Ever Notice Is People Bashing Other Cars Because They Wish Their Car Compared To Them.

Couldnt agree more. yeah most people may not be able to hit what the magazines run in the STI, but that also means that Z drivers cant either . . . right? Just because you drive a Z doesnt make you any better then an STi driver. The US STI makes 300 hp which is what I thought everyone is refering to. right?

one more point

The first argument on who's car is better is which one is faster. If you loose that then you say mine can handle better. If you loose that then you say mine looks better. If you loose that then you say I get better HP to liter then you, but who cares. Or I get better MPG. Mine was cheaper. Mine has higher resale. Reduardless you like your car and thats why you got. Dont feel bad if there are better performing cars out there. I now drive an Escort. So what. There will always be a better car out there, unless you have a Hummer H1, Maybach, and Enzo in you garage.

nah i would take a z32TT over a hummer or a maybach.

this above statement futher demonstrates that is all opinionated. whatever you think is better is what is better. i have a 300zx n/a and i think it is better than a 350z eventhough the 350z kills it in every category and most people think it looks better but i dont. i personally think that the stlying of the z32 kills the 350z.

Re: z32tt vs dodge srt4

Bingo....

Your Opinion Is All That Matters. If You Care About What Other People Think You Are Really Superficial Or Are Just Plain Stupid. Why Buy Something To Appease The Masses When You'll Ultimately Be Unhappy? It Just Doesn't Make Sense...

Ohh Well To Each Their Own And Just Have Fun Thats All That Matters!

It's easier than you think to rip off insane numbers in cars like the STI cuz they're all wheel drive. There's not too much to launching them in comparison to a RWD car. You kinda sorta just rev to ~5k and dump the clutch...bad for tranny...good for times.

Anyway...don't get me wrong...the STI is definately NOT out of a Zs grasp. I'll be there soon enough. -<-Sidenote->- In fact, I went and test drove the Z31Ts daily driver replacement today...Scion Tc...VERY cool cars at an even COOLER price. I told the sales guy the Tc will never be faster than my 300 and he was kinda trying to sell me on the Stage III supercharger upgrade..."how about with the TRD Stage III supercharger they have coming out...250hp"...I laughed and told him I'm pushing around 225 right now and I haven't even done much. He shut up after that. Anyway...I highly recommend the Tc...nice cars. -<-Sidenote->- With the extra chunk of money you'd spend on the STI, you could make the Z32TT EXTREMELY fast. Don't get me wrong...I'd take a Z32TT over a WRX or EVO any friggen day...

Re: z32tt vs dodge srt4

the STI is an ugly car just like the dodge neon srt4. both are ugly, look cheap and the only thing this two got going is power but no curves and style.

how many STIs do you see out on the streets? none cause they are so ugly no one wants to pay $30000 for one. only people with bad taste.

Re: z32tt vs dodge srt4

Thanks, Delerious.

I agree the STIs are NOT much to look at...especially for the price tag. Good performance...looks better than past WRXs...looks better in person than in pics...def no where NEAR as sexy as Z cars. Same goes for EVOs. I don't mind the SRT's look, though. I wouldn't mind having an SRT-4...but a WRX or EVO...uh uh...unless it's free...
