So, is the G35 supposed to be faster or something?

well with thier power and torque output, I would think so :ph34r: ...and i don't want no technical shit like "well given the coefficient drag along with that type of driver, blah blah blah" point is the g35 is no slouch

Well it does weigh like 600lbs more, so there goes it torque advantage, along with it probably geared longer for comfort, and it's only got about 30 more hp than the s2000. It's still quick for it's size though.

according to Infiniti.com...it has 40 more hp than the s2k and thew new g35 with the 6 speed has 58 more hp...granted that wasn't the 6 speed but he still shouldn't get walked on like that...oh well
you may just be right with the gearing tho
 
that race was won every time by gearing alone case closed. A good vid none the less, and that s200 sounds sick if i do say so myself

:withstupid:

The 600lb difference doesnt help the G35 either, but the longer gears is the most likely reason that the S2K out ran the G35.

Well, yea, but that extra 100lbs-ft is sucked up by that extra weight. That thing would be a beast if you put it on a diet, and got a better tranny.

IMO the S2000 sounds like total shit.

G35 were never ment to be all that fast. a 350Z can walk them no problem.
However, a G35 is a total pimp ride. get in the G35 then get in the S2000 you will find that they are two very different cars.

If the S2000 couldnt beat the G35 I would have lost all respect for the S2000
 
from a dead stop, the peaky power band of the s2000 wouldn't matter. the fact that it could be kept there helps on the highway too. and the gearing is a total "Apples vs. oranges" afair in this race.
