    Knee on the wheel, camera in the one hand, and shifting with the other I assume.

    I've been on the phone, played with the radio, played with the girlfriend, and gotten roadhead and was able to shift.

    You learn to adapt.

    left hand camera, right hand on the wheel, let go, shift, put hand back on wheel.
    easy enough.

    I pay 30 bucks a month for a 2007 GSX-R1000

    I don't think I'm the problem.

    Jeffie, what kind of mpg do Z/G35 owners get on the highway, in the city, and with mixed driving?

    Your car is beautiful and makes me want to sell off the WRX every time I see it. I came across a light blue (I don't know the paint code, but I think its one of the best looking blues that I've ever seen) G35 today that was for sale and I just fell in love with the thing.

    nice looking car and by the videos it looks like you got it down to the low 14s or so in the 1/4, good job for such a heavy car. props

    My avg use to be 25 mpg, if I reset the MPH gauge while up to speed on the highway it would get 30-32mpg. Now that I'm running a 3.3 rear I bet if I were to get it up to speed and coast, it would get around 40 it sits right around 2K rpm at 65mph. However as soon as you give it any throttle the 600s suck fuel.

    As to the other guy, these are confirmed times on my350z.com Some of the top 1/4 mile times from the site.

    100% stock cars.

    Single Turbo Cars.

    There's a G35 running my turbo kit that ran 11.00, With my current setup + slicks I should dip into the 11s. as it sits now with street tires, easily 12s.

    I put very little work into that picture, I had a filter on my camera, I shot it with full sunlight, but with no flash.

    The biggest thing I did in PS was turn up the greens on the grass/trees

    :werd:, that car is definitely sub 14s, like total said, high 12s, 13's should be a sure thing.
