Ya I opened this thread expecting a "lost but good try" story. Let me rewrite this so that everyone knows what REALLY happened.

"Ya i was on the interstate and this maxima came up on my ass. I hit the gas thinking my car was all that cause it looks pretty, but then the maxima just went *zooP* and I stared at his taillights for the next 30 min before i got off at my exit."

That's what really happened. Race that car from a dig especially and a stock tC will get demolished. SC would make it a damn good race though.

he might be right.. 97's are ####ty as fawwk.. I dont think the maxima's even got a good overhaul until 2000... I owned both a maxima and an altima, keep in mind it was fast... but it didnt really have too much..

my brother owns a 2003 maxima v6.. 260hp with new kelly tires, things fast as FAWK!

also: the maxima might have had a gear out? hahahah

just be nice, remember karma's a mudda fugga

Can the insults. Maybe at 100 mph he had more sense than you and let off the gas? There is NO way you smoked a Maxima.

That would have to be one tired Maxima. Kinda like beating a Supra with a massive boost leak. It happens occasionally, but not typically twice.

Hmm..

My friend at work has a Maxima, I think hers is a 96. She's driven me around a few times and gotten into it, and from what I could tell, our tC has more pep. Her's is a 5spd 6cyl. It really didn't feel as fast as the tC. But hey, whatever. I'm not claiming anything here. I've hinted if she'd like to race sometime on a dead street near where we work, and she just laughs. She's getting a tiburon in the spring.. I should ask her again before she does, lol.

See, it's stuff like this that makes me mad though. No way should a bloaty 4dr ugly looking nissan be faster than our car. Our car should be stock at least as fast as an RSX-S. But oh no, you only get that if you want to shell out an extra $3200++. Whatever.

Dude you gotta remember that the tC is 16k. 16k, that's it. A new nissan maxima costs like at least 25k probably, don't quote me on that though. 20k for a reliable, 200hp 2900lb coupe is not terrible at all. I'd take it.

My mom has a 1999 Infiniti I30t which is basically a really nice Maxima. I took it to the track and ran a 16.1 @ 88 mph. 190 horses and 205 lb.ft torque. Yes its an auto, independent testing showed a 0-60 7 seconds for the manual.

Then its not a Maxima, my mom has a 2000 with 250 horsies, the thing is fast, would blow the doors, and hatch off the tc.

Let me tell you "racers" a story. One day about a year ago I was stopped next to a 2004 Lexus SC430 at a light. It was one of those places where there are two left turn lanes but only the left one goes onto the highway, which is where I needed to go. I was in the right lane, and I decided I was going to get in front of the Lexus.

The light turned green, and we both hauled ass. After a very short distance and at about 40 or 50 MPH, I was barely able to pull in front of the SC430.

I was amazed, because it really seemed like the SC430 was pushing it and trying to keep me from getting in front of him, and he didn't suddenly slow down at the end. I told Andrew (zoltiz), and we agreed that based on the stats of the SC430 (3,840 lbs, 4.3L V8, 300 hp, 325 ft.-lbs.) it was probably impossible that the driver of the SC430 was flooring it, so I didn't bother telling everyone how "I beat an SC430!!! [email protected] n00b."
