the z4 3.0 times and top speed is a little better than the s2000. so if your smoking him you must have done some nice mods to your car. as far as handeling goes don't forget it's a BMW.

nice job

100% agreed they are 14.7 cars and not even close to the S2K in acceleration.

The Z4 3.0 kills the S2000.. It's not even a race. At least from the two races I've seen that has been the outcome. Your Miata must of been pushing some miracle wings.

1990= Mazda= Miata== 9.4= 16.90

1991= Mazda= Miata== 9.1= 16.70

1994= Mazda= Miata== 9.7= 17.00

1996= Mazda= Miata== 8.7= 16.60

All good except I have some boost.

And as for the s2K not being a race I have seen those car stock pull sub 14 second 1/4. I have seen Z4 3.0 pull 14.7

They are not as quick as you think they are. My Miata went 16.0 stock ran 14.4 @ 98 MPH. The Z4 traps 96 MPH and is not much faster than a 330CI so they are high 14 second cars.

I could imagine if someone launched the shit out of the car it could pull a low 14.

But until I see it there are high 14 second cars.


My Magic wings are the m62 I have slapped onto the side of the motor. Pnly pushing 7PSI right now. Also with a 180 WHP and 2400LB curb do the math. When I trapped 98MPH I was only running 5 PSI since then A/W i/c has been added and a smaller pully.

obviously times veri and in my experience it comes down to two things the track and the driver.Have you seen the average person buying the z4 or miata are not typicaly the type of person who would launch the shit out of there cars let alone know how.So until that time comes were these veriables don't make a difference the z4 3.0 will smoke a s2k.

That is true I will not launch my car hard. Not worth it as It just kills my driveline.

Regardless my car is faster and that is the end of it. I am more a track whore (Circuit track) and run occasional auto X events.

Max 318 you have nothing to add to this conversation with your 17 second car!
