    cts vs g35

    hi,
    my friend wants to go, he just got a g35x ... all wheel drive 2004.

    i have an '06 cts 3.6L, rear wheel drive
    Both cars are auto... At stock, whats the likelihood that i'll beat him (my traction control off, both of our cars totally stock)


    predictions?

    thanks

    I think it would be a drivers race even though you both have automatics. But I'm not too familar with the G35X. I think the G35 might get you out of the hole due to the AWD but I think you might catch him. I'd say let us know how it goes

    I saw on a website that I go to see what cars can do in the 1/4 I saw that they had a 3.6 CTS on there and that it ran a 15.0 but it didn't specify whether it was auto or stick. They also had a G35 Sedan but no G35X and the sedan did a 1/4 in 14.8. So either the AWD is going to help it out in the 1/4 or hurt it. I think it would hurt it due to more drivetrain loss due to the AWD setup and due to more weight due to the AWD setup as well. I dunno if Infiniti gave the car any power boost at all to compensate but I highly doubt it. I would think you would win. Either way if people are talking crap about your Caddy and you do lose then you will probably get some props because the Infiniti (if it does beat you) isn't going to be beating you by a lot. But either way you shouldn't worry about what people say about your car. Drive what you like

    Been there before with my old 1991 Ford Taurus SHO+ and my 1995 Lincoln Mark VIII. It's always fun to listen to people run their mouth and then when you lay the smack down on them nothing gives you more joy then to hear nothing but silence from them afterwards

    Oh btw.. everything I've read shows the g35 ontop by .1 seconds. I'd race him, it's gonna be close enough to shut some mouths.

    Just make sure you get a good powerbrake launch, and don't let up!

    I've driven both the G35 sedan (RWD) and the CTS, and it will definitely be a driver's race.

    I dont think the awd hardware will directly slow it down. I believe it has a viscous coupling (or something similiar) which disconnects it when not needed. There is only the extra weight which will take away a tenth or so of the ET. Of course when you are blasting off, it will certainly be needed for traction, and I dont know how much of a delay there is in going from awd to rwd.

    In any case, don't count the G35 short. It is a fantastic car. At least as good as the CTS. I would take the CTS over it only for the fact that it is an American car.

    And who cares who is faster in the 1/4. The 1/4 is just bragging rights and means absolutely nothing more. My 00 Maxima was probably the fastest V6 sedan around when I bought it. Now it isnt even close. Doesnt mean it isnt a great car anymore. Speed is relative, and there is always someone faster.

    You like your CTS, he likes his G35, and everyone who is dissin on either is probably just jealous as they walk out to their Camrys and Malibus.
