I just happened to see this story on torontostreetracing.com. I found it hard to believe that a naturally aspirated Z24 could pull this off, but I guess this guy managed to.
Don't know if it's BS ... seems like it to me.

Anyways' here's the link to the story.

This is what I think.

a) It was a 320i, yes... "320!!!!" that raced the guy. The passenger in the Z24 must've been blind.

b) It really was a 330i, but he's just playing around w/the Z24 and letting off the gas from time to time. He/she may have pushed it initially but backed off

It's stupid, just a freeway race between two strangers. Can't determine if both are trying or not. But let the Z24 think that 330 is faster, cuz one day he'll be sorry :P

I don't think there's too much of a big difference on manual and auto for the 330 once you are running at such high speeds.

i dunno what to believe
i know that my car being a 2.5 as well (i think the z24 has a 2.5 as well right?) i was able to hang with a 330 on the highway up until my auto tranny hit final gear then he walked away from me.
I'm still not sure i believe the z24 could do the same though. I've been in my friend's z24 and once we hit about 170km/h the whole car starts to shake and feels like it'll fall apart if it went any faster.
and it's really hard to control at those speeds as well.
but maybe this driver was crazy =)

Maybe it started to shake because of the tires :P

Either they're worn out or pretty low
Or speed rating is pretty low :P

I can take a 318 and I don't have a Z24. But then I've beaten a couple Z24s because they can't shift worth sheet.

The newer Z24s are 2.4L 150hp/150ft-lbs, the older ones are 3.1L V6s 165hp/185ft-lbs. I think they'd be able to keep up (atleast keep up) with a 318/320/323 without much problem, a 330 on the other hand is REALLY pushing it.

Yes there are compact domestics that can take a smaller 3series BMW, but on an equal playing field, the 330 should be able to kick his ass.

I know quite a few GMs and Fords that'd easily beat any ZM3, but they're not quite stock anymore.

I don't care who was driving that 330, even if he was shit, there is no way in hell a Z24 POS would smoke a 330. My car with way less hp can peg a z24 no questions, and after that I would smoke him even more on the corners. What a clown. It is one thing to tell a story about beating a car in a race, but when you are blatenly altering or bullshitting the story, that is very sad.

Oh yeah, to the spiked lemon guy who posted an old caviler with the 3.1 could take a 323, all I have to say is, bring any clown on especially one in an old cavalier and I'll teach him a lesson.

How old are you? 16? Did you just get your shiny new Civic?

Really, I thought you BMW guys were better than that.:cool:

SpikedLemon, there is no way z24 was hanging with 330ci
I was palying with 330ci couple of weeks ago, and it is pretty fast, you need more than z24 to keep up with it.

about cavy vs 318, 320, 323 I dunno, but even 318 got more hp than your cavy. BUt I dunno the weight on those cars.

A lesson on the 323is. A, don't group me in with a 318 and a 320. Mine is 168bph and has the same stats as a 325is because of the superior torque curve. The new 320i have a 2.2L 168bhp as well, but mine is a 2.5L and let me tell you I have driven both, and there is a big difference from the 320 to the 323. Also, the old 320i have a 150bhp, and is a much smaller engine. Nice cars, don't get me wrong, just there is a difference from mine.
To the spiked lemon guy, Are you reffering to me with getting a civic? I don't even understand that post. Just have another question, why are you on here giving advise on Bimmers when you don't even have one?

In reference to the z24 previously discussed, knowing what has been done to the car it is easy to believe he walked on a 330. A normal z24 wouldn't even touch one, but 'judge's car is capable of doing that.

I love seeing how people get so worked up when an econo box beats a mid-level luxury sports car. Is it so hard to believe that not ALL cars are stock?

Ya what the hell is this guy thinking?? A crapalier???? You honestly gotta be kidding me.........what does that thing put out like 93.5HP to the front wheels??? Why doesn't he stick to attempting to beat 1.2L civics, which will still probably beat him because his good old shitalier will probably break down by the end of race anyways. And don't even get me started on what will happen on the first corner.........dont' worry, us BMW guys will stick together! Oh and just to set the record straight, I DO have respect for domestics because there are a TON of them out there that will just smoke me, and I have 3 really close friends who drive 2 mustang gt's, and a damn fast trans am. But lets just stop posting on this, we all know it's major BS.......

guys, my buddy wrote a great reply to that article, its cocky as shit but you will get a laugh!!!:D :D :D

"Hey, I just ran across this site searching for BMW stuff. Anyways as dissapointed as I was to see the name BMW and the name cavalier disgrace it, I just wanted to call you on bullshit. I have a E30 325i and the one opportunity and honor I ever gave a Cavalier the chance to race me I beat the pants off of it, he actually ended up wrapping the car around a pole because his Z24 couldn't handle a gradual turn. There are a few options you beat him: 1. He was too busy looking at your american piece of dump and laughing while he looked at his hot wife, while she laughed as well. 2. He was using his BMW phone to call the police to alert them that such a pile was on the road, 3. He wasn't up to showing up someone who is unfortunate in life, 4. He was in his engine break-in period and didn't want to go over 2,800RPM 5. He dropped his platinum Visa on his M-Tecnic rug and was picking it up as you passed him 6. He felt intimidated and thought you may possibly want to mug him due to your car 7. He felt sympathetic towards you, so instead of making you burn gas which you obviously cannot afford while attempting to keep up with him 8. He wanted you to go by faster than him so he could pull to the side and avoid bolts and rust hitting his car 9. He was leaving at the next exit to check in at the Mariott 10. He didn't feel the need to show off his car, he has a BMW and anyone with brains in their head knows what is under the hood. Those are just 10 of the million reasons why you should save your money and buy a new car and stop being such a knob. When you were posting on this list you could have been making money to be more like him. Odds are you are at the library as well with your free internet access, parked across 2 spots in the lot. While good standing people in society shake their head at your ignorance.

Have a nice day. Everyone take a second to laugh at a cavalier today it will make you feel better!

What's the point of racing a Z24 cava-queer anyways?

I don't think the 320/330 took it seriously
