View Full Version : I out ran a 300ZX TT with exhaust on the highway!

04-25-2002, 06:47 PM
I was heading out to the track yesterday and I was comming from 395 N getting ready to get onto 290 E (In MA). Out of no were came a hot shot in a red 300ZX Twin Turbo(90-96 style) with what looked like dual Stillen mufflers. He cut me off pretty good when I was getting ready to exit, so now I was a little pissed so I I started riding his rear(No pun)! We get onto 290 E and we both take off going from about 50-100 MPH, I was right behind him the whole time and I had to let off because I was closing in on him. Drafting sure is fun! So we got involved in some traffic and we both messed around for a while, he drove really aggressive and managed to cut through a few cars up ahead. Now I was trailing a little bit but I saw a opening! I hopped in the far right lane and went WOT until about 110 MPH. At this point I noticed the Z cutting blindly into my lane, I guess he did not realise just how fast I was comming up on him! He finaly noticed me when I was about to wack into him( I could have changed lanes if I had to). I jamed on my brakes and we both got side by side at 80 MPH, there was a car in his lane about 50 yards ahead so we both floored it fighting to get into the open lane, from 80-120 MPH I pulled about 1.5 car lenghts on him and I won the lane! We messed around for a little while longer and he could not catch me.

I was a bit suprised my self, I figured I could probably hang with a stock TT 5spd Z but not really pull on one on the highway like I did. I don't know if he was driving a 5spd 5spd or not but either way I beat him fair and square!

I have a 2002 6spd Maxima. The "performance" mods are as follows: Intake, RT cat, Greddy cat-back exhaust, KYB AGX's, H&R springs, FSTB, RSB. On my first trip out the track I got a 14.5 @ 98 MPH with a 2.44 60'. 215 FWHP and 231 FWTQ, CF .31 http://www.freshalloy.com/

Hey man nice kill! I love those 6spd maximas, thay can do some damage...those tt z's can do low 14's in the 1/4, I'm plannin on gettin a twin turbo z some time, with bigger turbo's and other mod's...those thing will absolutely fly. Are you plannin on boostin your maxima?

As of right now there are no SC kit's or Turbos available for the 2002 max, I would have to go custom $$. I had a Supercharged 5spd 98 infiniti I30T before this car, I miss having a blower!

I forgot to metion I have 18 X 8 SSR integrals(19.5 lb's each) and 245/40/18 Kumho tires. If I can get a 2.1-2.2 60' next time I go to the track I sude be able to run a 14 flat or maybe even high 13's. http://www.freshalloy.com/

TT Zs with bigger turbos will absolutely stand still spinning the tires; until you blow the motor

this is retarded...why are u racing in traffic on the highway....this is how people die and this is why cops are starting to crack down on this shyt...u dont race on highways...if u wanna kill urself at least dont involve innocent people...u might have thought u were cool posting this but to me ur stupid

04-27-2002, 07:24 PM
Quit your bythchin' If they wanna race, go for it. Nice kill by the way, I love Z'x, but have to settle for a 4th gen. max soon, can't wait!

04-27-2002, 07:29 PM
Thanks dude, 4th gen max's are very nice cars! I use to have a 95 5spd SE maxima, I had quite a few mods on that car and it would hold it's own against my 02(not for long though).

im_fast, settle your self down.

just enjoy the fact that ever time you read a story like this it reminds you why you are probably paying more than you have to for insurance,

MaxThis, and how does my post differ from the other posts here? Maxima.org was down when I posted here but that's beside the point. Rude comments like yours do not belong on this forum. This section is dedicated to races, hence the title Road Kills and other car stories. If you don't like reading about races then please find some where else to go.

Thanks tank, I did my tails custom though http://www.freshalloy.com/
