Racing an Infiniti I30 friday night
 
Hey guys,
I'm gonna race an Infiniti I30 friday night.
The only mod that he's got is an air intake.
I've got a Dinan air intake, exhaust and software in my 325ci.
I'm pretty sure I can take him.
What do you guys think?

Mikester 02-25-2004 09:01 PM

youre gonna win for sure if you know how to drive

03 Dinan 3 02-25-2004 09:03 PM

hahaha
alright
I think I can do that....

bart320i 02-25-2004 09:04 PM

just as long as you get a nice start I don't see him catching up

Mikester 02-25-2004 09:06 PM

cause youve got over 200hp now, right?
according to edmunds.com, the I30 is 190 with a little more torque, and weighs only 50lb less than your car... +its FWD
(so lets just hope he's a fat guy)

03 Dinan 3 02-25-2004 09:10 PM

hahahah
he is fat!!

Mikester 02-25-2004 09:12 PM

are you racing for $$$?

03 Dinan 3 02-25-2004 09:14 PM

ya but not a lot....probably like $50

Mikester 02-25-2004 09:18 PM

what if ill put in a 50 too?? (need extra cash :) )
can you guarantee good shifting?

03 Dinan 3 02-25-2004 09:20 PM

haha o man
i dont mean to brag but I'm pretty damn good for my age and everything...

Mikester 02-25-2004 09:32 PM

ask the guy if he wants to bet 100

03 Dinan 3 02-25-2004 09:34 PM

i dont think he will...he's the cheap type

Mystikal 02-25-2004 09:46 PM

From the "M Shift Knob" in your sig, I'm assuming your car is standard. Also noting that you said I30 and not I30t, there is no chance that his car is stick (ignoring the tiny amount of standard I30's produced at all).

You'll win hands down. You're 16 though, aren't you? Be careful out there.

03 Dinan 3 02-25-2004 09:49 PM

ya I am...but this guy's 16 minus the G2 cause he's a nimrod.
It's my birthday on friday too!
I won't do anything stupid tho...

03 Dinan 3 02-25-2004 09:54 PM

for the I30T, does that mean it's manual?
cause i know for sure his is an automatic....

No, but the only I30 that had the option of a manual transmission was the Touring model, aka I30t. Probably like 5% were ordered that way in any case.

03 Dinan 3 02-25-2004 10:03 PM

do you guys think a Dinan high flow throttle body would do a lot in my car? It says 7 HP gain, but will I feel any difference?

rodo 02-25-2004 10:17 PM

hahaha infinity kill!
 
the 325ci is going to swoooop the i30. The kid thinks his car is sooo fast. Is it possible that it runs 6.9 0-60? Guess whos taping this from the beemer ;) Yet we better get a camera with a good zoom, and i better learn to film wats behind, becuase im going to have to film this nimrod when hes 10 car lengths behind us ;)

03 Dinan 3 02-25-2004 10:32 PM

that's a good idea
I recommend a 20x zoom...
he'll be way back there....crying...

crazyvadim 02-25-2004 11:58 PM

You have a stick??
What year is the I30,i know the 2000 model came with 227 horsepower and the newer ones came with the 255,they are basically the same thing as a Maxima only a little more luxirous.Dont sleep on the 227 horsepwer I30,i would say you would be neck to neck if both were stock and you have a manual gearbox but since you got some mods you might pull ahead.If its the 255 horsepower I30 then i bet my money on the I30.

03 Dinan 3 02-26-2004 12:28 AM

it's the crappy I30
his 0-60 runs APPARENTLY are 7.0s....BS
mine's faster than that and I'm pretty sure I'll take him..

and yes my car is stick

They either came in like 190 or 227,i dont think the 227 horsepower I30 is that much slower then your 325

03 Dinan 3 02-26-2004 01:09 AM

it's a 2001

Mystikal 02-26-2004 02:07 AM

Whoa whoa whoa, I posted my thoughts expecting it to be one of the older models. That is the 227hp one. It will be a lot closer than you think, especially if you're not too experienced.

03 Dinan 3 02-26-2004 02:09 AM

I'm pretty experienced...I've driven manual for a solid 2 years now, and I'm pretty consistent with my shifts

Mikester 02-26-2004 02:27 AM

yea i thought it was an older model too

Yeah i was confused,i thought you guys were sleaping on the newer I30s.I think if hes a good driver then he should pull slightly on the I30 but nowhere near destroy him.

I35s=*th-up* 255hp

lvan 02-26-2004 07:17 AM

older aaa hehehe If you screw with shifting you will be owned. As that guy said Maxima Nissan engines are powerfull. Also 325 is like what not even 190hp. Were you talking about 10 cars lenght to beat him. Hmmmm not sure how hehe

03 Dinan 3 02-26-2004 01:28 PM

I originally thought it would be a close race...
I have about 200HP now with my Dinan upgrades

Mystikal 02-26-2004 03:31 PM

Don't get me wrong, you WILL win. You have a weight advantage, RWD traction, plus the gearbox. Just don't make a mistake. :D

theblue 02-26-2004 04:38 PM

how do you guys figure this is a win for the BMW...

I obviously know a thing or two about the maxima/I30 platform.

His car is good for a mid 15 second run, maybe closer to a 15 flat with an intake.

Just like any other race, the car which is lighter and puts more HP to the ground should win, and it's not the BMW here.

As for you guys, it's anybody's race because I doubt either of you can drive.

03 Dinan 3 02-26-2004 11:20 PM

How can u doubt I drive well??
You haven't even seen me...
I've raced several times and have won all of them (i.e. like 15 times) and they're not shit boxes either
this includes mustangs, bmw's, audi's etc...

Understated 02-26-2004 11:26 PM

perfection is a must :)

It's not that simple, and you know it. Let's look at some numbers:

2001 Infiniti I30:
3342lbs / ~237hp = 14.101

2003 BMW 325Ci
3197lbs / ~200hp = 15.985

Fair enough, the I30 looks like a sure winner. Now, let's sprinkle in a few IMPORTANT factors.

1. The 325Ci is RWD, much better off the line traction
2. The I30 is auto, which naturally is a huge handicap.
3. The 325Ci has 5 gears to spread it's torque over, the I30 just 4.
4. With 18" tires, I'm sure he has a much wider footprint to get the power down.

Once you add those to the mix, I'd confidently put my money on the Bimmer. I love Nissans just as much as you, but an auto I30 just isn't going to keep up. If it were a stick Max SE, well then we have a different story altogether.

WHAT HE SAID.

SUPERCHARGED 02-27-2004 03:09 AM

this will be close. if he can get a good launch then its over.

SUPERCHARGED 02-27-2004 03:09 AM

film it please.

what time will you race him?

03 Dinan 3 02-27-2004 03:47 AM

Saturday morning at about 1
we're gonna try to film it

I'm also getting a high flow throttle body put on tomorrow with the stage 3 software upgrade. Do you think this will help?

Mikester 02-27-2004 05:59 AM

pm me with the place name, i might come see it
