Test drove 350 Z
My friend just got back from his deployment. He came back and bought a 350Z. He told me to take it for a test drive and so i did. I babyed it at first to get used to the gearing and feel for the clutch. My friends was like "dude wtf ?.....get on it". As soon as he told me that i knew of a nice openeing in the road where i could stop. I come to a stop, Turn the traction control off, slip it in to first lightly then cut the wheel and punch it. Sure enough the rear end kicks out to the right. I bang second gear and the rear end then kicks out to the left. Tires are screaming at this point. I bang third gear and tach it out. When i powershifted fourth gear it still even barked the tires. After that i took it easy into 5th and 6th gear but was definitally a fun little test drive. I didnt think they had that much power. I cant even imagen dumping the clutch in that car for a first gear burn out. All i had to do was punch it. But definitally seems like a fun little car to have. Of course its not so fun in the rain or snow.
