D sport is a very good magazine when reading about mods and upgrades. And even though I can see where there coming from as far as the reasons they believe why the Z is there pick. They made it hard to convince me that the camaro and mustang are sub par. As far as the camaro SS. I already made one look like a baby in Zenrobia(my last Z) I never came across a new GT and don't plan to without mods. I figured the camaro would be a drives race and sine the guys had a 6m I said..."he's toast and I toasted em on the track, lovely. But I can agree with 2 things.
1. Price to performance, nothing comapares on the overall package.
2. With the right preliminary mods the Z is one hell of a machine.

I think you're thinking of the old mustang.

I saw you hanging out with some 5.0 drivers...and they both had the same haircut at you

No mullets! They add 50whp and that's just not fair.

Well when you step out of the mustang, your hair reverts back to its pre-mullet form.

D sport has always been a joke. Even in high school I thought it was satire.

Surprised you made an ss look like a baby...what time did he run?

Come on, join in. There's not much else to do, and it's fun to make fun of guys that get paid to write about cars and can't even do it well.

Oh I know, my best friend got his 5.0 a couple weeks after I got my Z. I know all about it's superiorities that DSport seems to not have been able to take advantage of.

I just love that while they're saying it's the best rwd car of 2012 they do a pretty good job of bashing it at the same time. It's hard to believe they actually liked it.

Nissan drivers are a huge portion of their reading demographic. No euro guys read it, no Domestic drivers read it...pretty much between the genesis and the z. It's just good business.

Their "downsides" to all the cars are designed to play right into stereotypes--German cars are too "exclusive", domestics only good in a straight line...the new z overheats, unlike your old Honda...etc, etc. Just trying to make money.
