    Default February 2010 Car of the Month - Nackers

















    ChicagoZ.com :What got you hooked to the 350Z that you ended up purchasing it?

    Nackers :Actually, I got my 350z by mistake and to be honest, I didn't like the way it looked. I was looking for wheels for my S13 and accidentily clicked 'Cars for Sale' on Zilvia.net and the Z was the first listing. I clicked on it and realized that it was totally affordable for me. Also, the car had a roll cage, sway bars, and test pipes. It was owned by Formula D driver Carl Rydquist and it was the chariot that got him there. Now, however, I couldn't see myself driving another S-chassis as a serious track car.

    ChicagoZ.com :What action does your 350Z mostly see? drag, autox, road race, show car, weekend car, and/or daily driver...

    Nackers :For now, its my daily driver/Drift car. I do have a truck now so theoretically I could use that, but thats no fun.

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

    Nackers :I'm not interested in how fast it is. I'm only interested in how fast the rear tires can move in relation to the front.

    ChicagoZ.com :What other modifications are you planning on doing to the 350Z, if any? Whether it's performance, handling, appearance, and/or sound system....

    Turbonetics single turbo kit
