ok PSS 4S installed, next an alignment and then test the tires

it was funny at the tire store, the techs were falling all over the car, looking at the FI Exhaust, asking about mods, runs on tail of the dragon, what color is that looks plum, black cherry you said, WOW your seats felt great, what are they Recaro cross sportsters cs.

one tech got under the car to see the exhaust

Like the color of the wheels, painted nice, the whole time the tires were being out on the car,

Well yes, there are smaller than the last ones which were 305's.
Its a fine edge between, wanting an aggressive look, vs autocross..
car is not a DD, but my dream car, to just have fun with.

Autocross this time at the minor league stadium... in pigeon forge TN

Got a good laugh today, I went out in my DD (2015 Genesis Coupe AT) and said boy this car feels like crap, always thought it was a pretty good car...

Reason for the feeling, I have been driving the Z for over a week, on a trip and to the mitty at Road Atlanta, now I am in love even more....

Ok, a couple of weeks ago already, went to wannagofast, to see how fast I could get the Z in a 1/2 mile. It was kinda neat, since they have a new timing system (which after lunch broke for a bit, which cut into run times)

I got 6 runs, 5 with times. The interesting part is how fast the car can go to 1/4 mile, but then the last 1/4 mile it dies...

1st run was the best run 122.6158, off 2 miles from 2014.
1/4 mile was 100.5362
1/2 mile was 122.5362

2nd run was 122.3491
1/4 mile was 100.8969
1/2 mile was 122.3491

those runs, were learning how to re-shift, last time it pulled all the way up to 4th and stop
this time with the tune and everything I had to shift to 5th so I would not red-line and then engine start going into limp mode...

The third run was awful, I missed up my shifts, burnt the clutch and it smell real bad for an hour, did not make another run for 2 hours, so that was probably good.

Someone came up and said that not how a Z runs and said they saw black smoke coming out the back (might be new clutch time)

The rest of the day was just shifting at 6k, 6,5K and 7K from a rolling start. seemed ok, but it did cut into the speed.

Got several comments on the Z, remember some folks walking by and trying to figure out the color, love that black cherry changes based on the sunlight

just a good time to let the Z run like she wants to...

Odd feeling seeing someone else drive your Z, even if it is just the service person at the dealership...

Was reviewing my oil change information, I have the Nissan gold plan, paid for some maintenance up front till 105000 miles. When I checked what type of oil, seems my service contact likes the Z and performance cars in general, oil change was with synthetic.

Kinda weird you only got 100mph at the quarter mile with 330whp. My car stock with an axleback ran 13.29 104.9 mph at 3000 DA. Maybe clutch?

been some time, a couple of weeks ago, drove up to dayton oh to autocross with my son, great time. He beat me again. Funny thing I did learn something from him, he kept telling me to slow down, on a the slow part of the course. It finally sunk in after he beat me on the last run by 2 seconds. It was like what was I doing. But we had fun and we co-drove and were both in the car at the same time... it was fun and that was the whole reason behind it
