Default Anyone traded STI or EVO and get a Z?

Getting new car soon.

I've read quite a lot of posts about how people "switched" from Z to to STI or EVO.
What about vice-versa?

Thank you,
Vlad

I've had an 03 350z and 04 STi and now an 05 350z. The thing I've learned owning these 3 cars is that its all the same **** it just got shaped a little different coming out of the ***.

The performance differences are barely noticable on a track at 10/10. The Sti might be a little fast but I think the ability to easily fit a larger tire on the Z makes up for that. The suspension geometry on both cars sucks and they eat R-comps. All I did with these cars is auto-x/ track them and they are both fun. The Z is easier to drive at the limit though.

The Z has great Geometry and design, just crappy tuning!


Do you have camber and toe arms for your Z, or is it stock?

I had a 04 evo, and taded it in for my z. I loved the evo, but honestly being in CA, the car didn't like running properly on our **** gas over here. Also, the fact that it was hit three times in 10 months was a HUGE factor in getting rid of it. When your brand new car get's tagged by a junker in a parking lot, Hummer, and then an 81 buick station wagon, it's time to let it go and move on. I loved that car, but I love the Z too.
In a perfect world I'd have both, a Z and either an evo or STI.
If i ever have to get rid of the Z for any unfortunate reason, i'd get an STI, just to say i had all three
lol
