a 400hp LS2 C6 6 speed is a very high 12 second car at 110-113 mph.

Your 370 Z's will be around 13.3-5 at 106-7.

It STILL won't be a fast car.
LOL, who are you...get out of our forums.

I'm going to guess 12.7-13.4 ET's and traps from 105 - 112 MPH (driver and track dependant). But I did make a few wrong guesses once or twice in the past...

Yeah, I actually do. Do you?

Look at my previous post. And C6's can do better than high 12s. I'm not sure about others, but I'm talking about the absolute best time possible out of the 370Z.

The 370z will be a low 13 sec 1/4 mile car (on average). That's if the rumors are true about its weight and hp.

Yes, with excellent driving and track conditions (sea level, cold dry air, sticky track, favorable wind, etc) guys will pull high 12s. But that will not be the norm. Average drivers with average track conditions will be pulling low 13s.

And the current 350z is not a low 13 sec car (on average). Yes, some 350z owners have run low 13s, but most have not. The majority of stock 350z's run mid 13s or slower at the track.

I frequent the new Camaro forums and they had a thread similar to this. A bunch of future Camaro SS owners have been talking about running low to mid 12s (bone stock).
Yes, it will probably happen on a 30 degree day at ATCO with a 30mph tail wind. But the Camaro SS will not run that fast on average.

And many stock C6's have run low 12s (FYI).

Older Cayman C? Yes.

Newer model coming out with 315HP, direct injection and PDK tranny? Close call... especially with the PDK. I'm going to guess nearly the exact same. About 4.9 and 13 flat for runs to 60 and 1/4 mile times.

get out of here with your worthless post. stock c5's are pulling high 12's. my half retarded friend pulled a 12.9 in his stock c5. stock c6's will pull mid 12's with a average driver.

and with a decent driver behind the wheel the new z i think should be in the low 13's. With the better drivers dipping down to around 12.7-12.8. and trap speeds of around 105-111

The answer is no. Daddy will still not let you take his Grand Prix to the dragstrip on high school night!

Ok I am predicting 13.1
The 370Z should run a couple tenths seconds faster than your car.

EDIT: Never mind. I don't see any times. Continue bence racing.

Id prefer to wait and see too but the guessing game can be fun....As mentioned the HR is already doing 13.1's at best so its logical to assume that the 370 with less weight and a bit more power should be a 12 sec car. The new trick autos may get it there before the manual versions. As for the mph I think 109-110mph trap is not unreasonable if the HR has done 107-108 mph at best.

I don't think people realize that this hypothetical/theoretical assumptions for the 1/4 mile run are for the ABSOLUTE BEST RUN POSSIBLE. Currently, the 350Z (HR) has pulled off 13.1 with multiple drivers in different areas. 12.9xx is possible given better than perfect conditions with an awesome driver.

Assuming the Z34 to have less weight and more power, my assumptions shouldn't be too far off.

I don't think most of you realize what really matters at the drag strip or how things are even done. Please educate yourself first on the topic of drag racing before posting.

13.1 is a freak thing. just like saying a stock c6 can hit 12.1, has happened but very very few and far between. 13.4 to 13.7 with a good but not great driver with stock tires. i would expect low 13's with for the 370 with some freaky times dipping into the high 12's. 12.6 is imho is crazy, slicks on a cool day with a perfect launch, yeah maybe but thats not gonna be the norm.

yeah, i just bench raced.. omg wtf!?!!?!?

I think I'm gonna wait till the "official" specs comes out to make my assumptions. BUT I will say this (and this is common sense), the current Z was able to do 13.3 in the 1/4 miles (magazine date) so, the 370Z will do better than that. I am def seeing the new Z in 12s. Also I should mention that for 1/4 mile data, I ALWAYS rely on the magazine specs because forum members "personal" 1/4 mile has too many variables.

What magazine tested the current 350z to 13.1?
