it was cloudy the whole time but guess it was better to have it this way so that the track temperature stayed low. sucked for the vendors though because the booths were flying everywhere… lol our booth almost hit this one car who parked next to our booth.
today, Mike from Double Down Motorsports brought his Z34 (US name: 370Z) to test the seat rail. the seat rails are good 🙂 the J-spec seat rail will fit on the US Z34/370Z without any modifications needed. special thanks to Mike!! 🙂
my friend Mike (owner of Double Down Motorsports.com) came all the way from Nevada today 🙂 well, not today but this week. congrats on your 370Z!! so, heres some of the pic of probably the fastest one around here (with an intake and a high-flow cat) 370Z 🙂
今日はネバダの友達、マイク（Double Down Motorsports.comのオーナーさん）が遊びに来ましたぁ。遠路はるばるアリガトウ！！っつっても来たのは月曜日かなんかで仕事の関係でこっちに来たわけで。あ、マイク、新車オメデトウ！！ってなわけで、この近辺では一番早いであろう（インテークと触媒交換済）Ｚ３４の写真 🙂
btw, below is his 350Z.
Redline Time Attack from last year. think it was July.
yea, two months after i bought the 350Z lol wednesday went to J Lounge (nice place out there) for a unveiling event. didnt think it was formal so i wore my hoody and jeans with my DC skating shoes… kind of embarrassing… why didnt i use common sense? hahha but not like Nick where he had a DMV paper holding the line lol after the entrance was the little history of the Z displayed. just gotta love the S30 Z. the model is the best out of all the Z. the waitress were pretty hot handing out finger foods and their fake azz smiles. the bar was full open, meaning FREE drinks!! only took one shot of the yeagarbomb with brian and glen. got to meet a lot of people like one of the directors from Polyphony Digital from the SONY Group and BEST Motoring Japan’s CEO, etc.
so what do you guys think? personally, not really a fan of the new design. the exterior looks like its just been photoshoped where the pushed in the head lights and pulled out the rear fenders and just sticked in the VQ37HR from the G37 under its hood. the interior looks too futuristic to me. the rear fender’s volume is really sexy but just that head lights and tail lights… 😦 whats up with their designs these days? and plus the R35, which i am not an big fan of it as well. Lexus and Honda are coming out with their V10 super sports and Nissan left with a V6 twin turbo? come on that cant be a flagship model for Nissan? its true of what Porche’s manage said at a media conference for the R35. what they said is “Nissan CAN ALSO make sports car. But Porche MAKES sports cars”.thats a huge difference within the marketing. and the results are shown i guess. the R35 cannot be ranked as one of the top sports car like Porche and Lamborghini took place. i know for a while they will be popular with all the aftermarket manufacturers jumping in to make body-kits and suspension along with exhausts and seat rails etc. but what then? with that controversial design, is the old car fanatics gonna buy the car or what? will the wife allow er husband purchase this 370Z rather than the Honda Odyssey? hmmm….
