i will agree with solo. nismo 370 is not as hard core as the nismo 350.... so what ? how many owners will actually feel the handling difference ? most will be waxed and kept in the garage anyway.

i personally don't like either one... and think that base z is the best way to go.

Yes, even stock Non-Nismo 370s have that diagonal bracing. At least the sport model that we had up on the lift had it.

Actually I think that was your finger at the end there

I'm going to line up a dyno in the next 2 weeks - try to get a baseline on a Nismo 370. I haven't seen a dyno for one yet...

The 370z NISMO to me, is too soft and less responsive over my car.
That sounds about right. Nissan made the NISMO 370z a little more streetable, where as they made the NISMO 350z practically a full blown track car. On the Tsukuba circuit, the NISMO 370z's fastest lap was only .020 seconds faster than the NISMO 350z, so there isn't a huge difference from the 370z to the 350z.

Considering the difference in horsepower, that says a lot for the Nismo 350's handling...

but here is what i am getting at. solo says HR is faster, we all know this. now every nismo 350z owners claim the superiority of the 350z nismo when it comes to the chassis stiffness and how its made to be an all out track vs the 370z which is made to be more of a friendly daily driver. so HR is faster and handles better but it still loses to the 370z nismo on the tskubua circuit. im confused thats all.
