Agreed.

But when you are driving those Nissans with a 5 or 6spd or whatever, you can't beat that.

I just like to talk, I know when I am beat. A max is faster, but I could keep up I'm just.

3.71 gearing with those big *** 27" diameter tires is impressive tho

Most Japanese car companies underrate their cars. Until recently Japanese car companies had a gentlemens agreement to stay under 300 horse power (this was never adhered to) so to seem like they were complying they underrated them. I wonder when the companies are going to reach a limit and stop. I mean they are aleady breaking three hundred with four doors, (not big ones like ours but Subies) so I wonder when they are gonna feel that a certain number of horsepower is enough????
They are getting there even with the bigger Sedans. The Acura TL is up to 270 hp. Im sure in a couple of year theyll will be at the 300 hp mark.

Still underpowered...

The imported cars are getting way more power with smaller, lighter more fuel efficient engines. I give respect where respect is due....

High end Japanese cars are damn nice

The GXP is underpowered for a V8...hell, MY car is underpowered for a V8

that looks like the auto maxima that handed me my @$$ about 2 months ago.....wait, that one was silver, from a stop and a role.

can't wait to see the #'* that different mags get from the GXP, finally they match the better northstar with the better gears.

nice maxipad!

you'll take my rora, maybe with the next ride.....thinking L67 somthin
