are you more of a speed freak wanting more speed as you taste it or are you a racer lookin to improve your skill/time everytime you get on the track?

Although I like fiddling around with the Z in my living room (and also although my sig line asks if you are a speed freak :D ) I like to treat my Z ownershipas if it were a racing career. Albeit a tiny one :D

So it's all about getting the car dialed in, cutting down the lap times, figuring out new turn-in points, adding parts, etc.

Sort of like a living video game I suppose.

i'm a full bread racer..........of course you need a fast motor to improve your lap times.............but like in initial D.........you don't need all that raw power to go really fast..........

i like to be more technical. speed dont take skills. just invest some money and u will get speed. but u cant buy experience with money. btw, i think initial d is rpetty fake especially the games

The only Z racing we have here is the racing my buddies and I do in my garage. We keep the rules simple, basically we keep the cars virtually stock, so the emphasis is on driver ability, so that's what I focus on.

i'm kinda in the middle of speed demon and improving skills. when i had the time in the past, i used to go to the track every weekend and race there for hours. got pretty goot too, till hw started piling up and i couldn't get there every weekend. I practice on my driveway now and that still improves my skill... but every now and then, I try to find a way to go as fast as I can in a straight line... nml motor helped me get up to speed...

It depends on which Z I drive, but overall I'm just trying to get better and better. It's just that some of my Z driving skills need a lot more improvement when driving certain Zs because I tend to attempt to drive them all the same--my poor Overland, it shouldn't be driven like an F1. :o

i try to finish the day with the least number of broken parts as possible :rolleyes: once a year it's about geting better (pre cup race racing) but for the most part it's for kicks... who doesn't have fun burning some laps for the heck of it :cool:
