if stock hr's can hit low 13s why would the 370z not be able to hit high 12s at least? common sense tells me it will be able to hit the 12s.

Fixed. Go to the 1/4 mile section and learn yourself something.

I believe the mod is absolutely correct. The car will be able to hit about a 12.7 in the 1/4 on its best day or with alberto driving, lol. other than that it will be a very low 13 sec car. Its not that hard to understand its not brain surgery.

Anything is possible but...

It takes more horsepower to get from 13.0 to 12.9 seconds than it does to get from 14.5 to 14.4 seconds. The relationship between horsepower and ET is exponential not additive.

Stock 370Z with summer tires and LSD: I'm guessing 12.9-13.0s on average.

12s will be easy to pull from this car.

It'll also give us an idea of just how much weight drags down the performance of a car, despite identical engines (G37). 5-600lb difference should definitely amount to about a 1 second advantage.

12.9 @ 108mph easy with good weather and a legit driver. In other words, 98% of 370Z owners will never see that...

Is it unfair to think that stock 370Zs will make about the same power as stock G37s? It seems stock G37s are putting down about 275rwhp +/-10, so it doesn't appear practical that the new Z would put down 300rwhp and is supposed to be about 200-250# lighter than the Z33. Do the math - it will be much faster than an HR. Screw the 1320', give me the keys to one and let me take it down Laguna Seca's corkscrew.
u know the rev-up and the 306hp (HR) are different, right?

the fastest stock HR Z is 13.1, your going to need a hell of alot more ponies than 26 to knock of 4 tenths of a seconds in the 1/4 mile. It wont run any faster than a 12.9 with an awesome driver.

+1111 the lower you go into 1/4 mile times the horsepower need to hit those times seems to start mutiplying. once you get into low 12 its a whole diff ballpark of HP numbers

Absolutely. Did I imply they were the same? I apologize if I did, but am well aware of the changes that have been made since the 1970 Z-cars.

Sorry guys but I'm going with the mid 13's. My previous cars were a Trans Am, and then a C6. My 300hp Z is not even in the same ballpark as either. Even when the T/A was stock it still would bury my current car. I'm doubtful the extra few ponies of the 370 will make a huge difference. Just my 2hp
