I thought the SC'* get at least twenty something more mph?

You fail to realize that the Maxima motor is just raw power, no turbo or supercgarhger, and with a speed limiter of 14? mph.

Fail not to realize do I. Too much trust you place in the steel of others. Honda, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Rice? A BC member craves not these things for they lead to the dark side. Judge me by my displacement? You should not, for my ally is the Supercharger and intense-racing.

my buddy and i tested his moms 2003 Maxima SE, the one with the six speed manual.

it is a very fast car, lots of wheel hop when you try to race it, and the top speed we got it up to was 120 going slightly downhill, it wouldnt go any faster, and we didnt want to go any faster either cuz of the upcoming saggy bridge.

i think it would be a close match, but i dont know who would win.

Yes, both the Maxima and the GTP are very fast. Now, will someone just race already and tell us the results. Please?

No, I just like my moms car. I'll always be a GM fan forever. I mean the bonnevilles arent the fastest thing in the world, neither is my moms car. I mean if you win you win. If your car gets beat , your beat. No love is lost, no hard fealings.
