View Full Version : October 2011 Car of the Month - Liquid_G's Z34

1. What got you hooked to the 370Z that you ended up purchasing it?

I've always loved the Z cars.. I remember drooling over the 300ZX's in high school.. I attended a ChicagoZ meet (Fields Infiniti Outing) in early 2009 with some friends from another car club.. Saw all the bad ass 350Z's owned by the different guys here and knew I wanted one. This was right when the 370Z's were showing up in the wild and fell in love with the new styling of it. Later that year I picked up my 09 370Z and couldn't be happier. I was my first ever MT car so it took some getting used to.

2. What action does your 370Z mostly see? drag, autox, road race, show car, weekend car, and/or
daily driver...
Mostly a Weekend Cruiser/ Show car. One of these days I really want to get out to a HPDE thing but just haven't had a chance to. Obviously that wouldn't happen with my current wheel/stance setup but that could be changed. Really want to see how this car does on a track.

3. Any performance specs? 1/4 mile@mph,whp/wtorq, track times...

After the SC install, put down 404whp/340tq on a DynoJet.

4. What are your current modifications? Any future modifications/wishlist? Whether it's performance, handling, appearance, and/or sound system....

Current mod list is below. As for future mods, I've got some stuff planned for the off-season, still kinda torn between going with a full body kit or GTM's recently released SC Upgrade and maybe a GT wing. :) Also need to look into a bigger oil cooler for those hot summer days. Looking at doing some interior work as well.

2009 370Z 6MT with Sport Package. Magnetic Black

Genes z is the Cleanest built 370z hands down. Congrats on the feature man.

10-02-2011, 10:53 AM
I really like how the front-end is low and looks really aggressive! I 350 lowered and it doesn't look as low as that! I want that look, how bad is it over the speed bumps?

Yeah, Brad, Mike and I were actually talking about that LOL.

Yes, let's do it for SURE next season. 2 of the best 370's in the US, both in Chicago, black and white? It's too good to pass up man.
