Your comparisons and analogies are completely flawed.

Try actually reading the comparison reviews. On the C&D test, it outperformed the PS2's, which are almost twice the price, on almost every...

I have the Hypermax III's SPORTS on my 06 G35 Coupe. They are a little rough on most roads (i'm on medium-settings), but handle great.

If I didn't have intentions of tracking the car, I would have...

CZP is working on them. They have the fronts ready, but the rears are holding them back.

You are stating the obvious.

I think most people here are referring to cars that have modified suspensions. I surely wouldn't get a corner balance if I were driving around a stock suspension car.

Why are the front offsets so weak?

Is that just the way the 370Z is for the fronts? Meaning, that's relatively flush?

Those are some very impressive numbers. 317 whp on Shariff's heart-breaker in impressive considering what others usually do on that dyno.

Very nice. The offsets on the rear is a good balance. Not too aggressive to the point where you have to run serious camber (though you're not dropped enough to even consider it if you have more...

I would say at least 9.5 fronts and 10.5 rears, with 10/11 being ideal. And 255/285 minimum rubber.

But offsets are MUCH more important if you want that "perfect" look.

The RE050A's are great performance tires. The only down side of them is the noise.

They came standard on my G35 Coupe 6MT. They lasted my quiet a while for the kind of abuse I put on them.

No gun-metal? That's by far the best looking color on a black G/Z!

Like many, I started to hate the "murdered out" theme and decided against black wheels with a polished lip. (Although, I did...

Not really, since it isn't considered a luxury coupe by any means.

Its hard to say what a true competitor would be, but lets just say the Genesis Coupe is a bargain compared to other 22-28k coupes...

If you fit in the G35 Coupe you'll fit in the 370Z. I own a 2006 G35 Coupe 6MT and I didn't feel cramped in the 370Z. Supricingly, it feels about the same in terms of room.

I'm 6'1" 160 lbs.

Someone who really wants a 6MT makes no excuses. Personally, I don't see why anyone would get an automatic on a sports car like the 370Z.

Best suspension? For what? Street or track?

Either way, the "the best" suspension doesn't exist. These opinions are always subjective.

Comparing each of those to each other is just pure bench/magazine racing. Conditions obviously varied in each individual run. And some of those were a one-attempt run.

They do give you a ballpark...

I own a 2006 G35 Coupe 6MT and have test driven the 370Z 6MT & G37 6MT many times. In daily driving, they are very similar in terms of feel.

Obviously the Z is more nimble due to its shorter...

That depends on the type of supercharger itself. A centrifugal supercharger hardly does anything to low-end power. In the other hand, a roots-type blower creates better low-end power but dies off at...

Hotchkis sway bars did make a great difference on my car. But in that video, it seems as if the driver is purposely making more violent turns on the stock setup.

Is this 100% accurate as of now? The V35/Z33 always had the same exact spring rates for 99% of the coilovers on the market.

IIRC, the rears of the HKS Hipermax III for the G37' are true coilovers. I would be very surprised if they went with damper + spring setup (not that it really makes much of a difference anyhow).
