Default 370Z Owner/driver needed for Royal Purple's "The Forum Wars"

Royal Purple NEEDS YOU!

Royal Purple's “The Forum Wars” is giving real members of real online car communities the opportunity to go head to head with rival counterparts in the ultimate racing challenge. Each video battle will be broadcast on SPEED and all over the web.

The producers are accepting applications from Nissan 370z owners RIGHT NOW!

This is YOUR chance to represent your badge, your community and your peers.

Forum vs Forum. Nissan 370z vs Mustang GT. Owner vs. Owner.

Official drag race. Slalom. Timed hot lap on a road race course. Three events. One winner.

If you have the car, experience on the track, and the eggs to bring it in front of a huge TV/Web audience then Royal Purple WANTS YOU!

If you….

- Own a 370z (street legal, DOT approved tires, current registration and insurance)

- Have track experience

- Live in L.A or surrounding counties – or willing to drive

- Come fully trash talk equipped and ready to be on camera

The producers want to hear from you.

Email theforumwars@gmail.com briefly stating why it should be you representing your community and the mighty 370z. Please also include details of your location, driving experience and a picture of your car.

This is a “run what you brung” competition. No tire changes. No trackside tuning.

Your chance to be the pride of the online Z community.

Hi Frost.

We already have a the 2010 Camaro SS vs Dodge Challenger SRT-8 and a classic match-up with the 69 Camaro SS vs 66 Mustang.

The 370z and Mustang GT have been drawn against each other in quite a few test reviews. Similar horsepower and price. As I'm sure you know, the Z weighs a couple of hundred lbs less, but this isn't a straight up car comparison, far from it. This is a chance to take the bragging rights, but ultimately a lot of it will come down to the driving ability of whoever is game to represent their car and their community. It's as much owner vs owner, ego vs ego, as it is car vs car and community vs community.

The entire day will play host to 10 match-ups, some of which include . . .

Viper ACR vs Corvette ZR1
Nissan GT-R vs Porsche 997 TT
BMW M5 vs Mercedes Benz E63
Mitsubishi EVO X vs Subaru STi
67-69 Camaro vs 66 Mustang
Audi RS4 vs BMW M3

It's run what you brung. Owner drives. You don't need to be an expert driver, but some track experience is expected. One set of tires. A full tank of gas. No track-side tuning. We're looking for a stock vehicle, but encourage all submissions, even if you have mods. We will only be running fairly matched vehicles, but we aren't ruling out equally modded vehicles.

The shoot will be taking place 11/13/09 at Irwindale Speedway.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Tim

Also, if they come back and say my car is too modded, I will also be available to drive someone elses stock Z if thats allowed. I will be down in the area anyway on the 13th since the Redline Time Attack Finals are on the 14th & 15th in Fontana.

go for it Mike... i think you can definitely represent the 370z community... i hope somebody can lend you a stocker because ur car for sure would not qualify... but then again, make sure to get a stock car with an OIL COOLER... or else it would be FAIL...

the perfect car that comes to mind is edmunds.com's test car... its pretty much stock with the nissan motorsport oil cooler...

Well when you think about it my car isn't that modded when you look purely at performance enhancing mods. Coilovers, sway bars, exhaust, and intake really. I wouldn't think they would have any issues with an oil cooler as that adds no real performance.

It's crucial that the results of the match-ups aren't made public in advance. For this reason we, unfortunately, have to keep this a private and controlled event. All competitors and crew will be subject to non-disclosure agreements.

Opening it up to spectators would inevitably lead to the outcomes of match ups being leaked and trying to account for potentially hundreds of members of the public with non-disclosure agreements isn't feasible.

Again, we would love to be able to open this up to the public, but in the interests of creating the most appealing show we can and maintaining some element of suspense it's not possible.

Sorry!
