Question: Stock 370Z 1/8th and 1/4 times and speed??

Question for those of you in the know.

What does a stock 370Z do in a 1/8th mile and 1/4 mile and the corresponding speeds?

Thanks in advance!

Elon

I usually look at www.dragtimes.com for numbers like this. According to this link, it's about 12.9-13.7s for 1/4 at 105-108mph and 8.3-8.8s for 1/8 at 82-85mph:

With 332 hp @ 7,000 rpm and 270 lb-ft @ 5,200 rpm at the crank, wonder what they are doing at the wheels? Assuming 18.1% drivetrain loss (in the 2003-2006 non rev up), i would think 272 at the wheels. I am just now starting my research on my next set of wheels. I know there are some 370 people on here, I'd like to hear from them on their personal time slips and dyno #'s.

Do these 370/350Z guys on here actually race (autox, roadcourse, dragrace) their cars or are they all just 'hard parkers' (term I learned at Import Alliance Summer Meet)? If you want to actually put your well handling/modded cars to the test, join us at the TAC 6 autocross at John Hunt Park tomorrow.

lol, hard parking. That term would've meant something else in the 1950s, lol.

I think a lot of them drive their cars, but not race them in any sanctioned events. Well, one I know drifts his.

I haven't yet but fully intend to. I just finished up my suspension so now it's just finding time since I travel so much with work.

I know this probably doesn't apply to this particular situation, but I have to get this out there.

I have no idea where the idea started that autocrossing requires suspension or tire upgrades to participate. Yes, to progress once you hit the limits of your stock car you step up to changes that help dial in the car to your liking. But people spending 2k on suspension before they even know the limits of the stock setup is a complete waste of money in my opinion. It's different if you like that setup on a daily driver, but if you're getting it just for autocrossing, it's probably going to be something you'll ultimately get rid of and change.

Well, honestly i'd much rather put my money into something thats going to improve the handling of my car and to allow me to achieve the ride height of choice than spend 2k on an exhaust that you see very little, to no gain out of.

Don't get me wrong though, i'll definitely spend 2k (and will) on a good sounding exhaust. It's just lower on my list of stuff to do.

I don't need a 3k big brake kit either but you better believe there will be one on the way soon enough

Oh yeah, I'm with you on that.

My order of mods is typically brakes/suspension, then intake/header/exhaust. Suspension can help with cornering where a lot of time is lost, and dialing it in via autocross helps keep you safe on the street for a daily driver.

Then I'll typically move onto brakes if it needs it, and then finally go faster stuff and look pretty stuff.

my #1 mod on everything is a brake upgrade. even if it's nothing but using a better quality rotor and pad. going fast is no good if you can't stop.

Not if they have flashing red and blue lights.

I drove a 40th Anniversary 370Z with my wife on Friday and I am very happy with the handling and brakes on the car. Granted I was only driving at most 6/10ths. I have seen on other write-ups that the stock "Sports Package" brakes do suffer some fade if pushed pretty hard. Have any of you 370z guys had problems with oil/transmission fluid temps when driving the cars hard? The most recent edition of Car & Driver (I think) had a write-up on the best handling cars under $40k. The Z came in 4th behind the Mustang GT, Miata, and Evo. One of it's problems was on lap time, in which they could only get one good hard lap out of it before going into limp mode from high oil/transmission fluid temps. If that is going to be the case, my first mod will be to put in a oil/transmission fluid cooler.

Low 13s stock is the norm with a decent driver. About 13.1 at 108 with a standard da.

Trans temps are fine. It's the diff and oil that "overheat".

The z kicks in stage one of limp mode at about 280, which is a lap or two in. Nothing to protect the diff, but run an ir gun on it and you'll see it's outta control a lap in.

Brake fade is mildly annoying, but anyone who tracks on stock pads is a moron. Swap the pads and you're in much better shape.

Fuel starve is what you really need to read into.
