2009 Nissan 370Z: Bumped

February 01, 2010

Above is a taste of what the road that I live on looks like. That stretch of tarmac shown looks gnarly, but you don't get a sense of how epically bad it is until you've driven it in the Z. It's like getting punched in the chin by Mike Tyson and watching Shrek Forever After in 3-D, both at the same time. After getting my bones jolted from their sockets during my first few passes, I learned to take it real slow over that patch. Like, barely moving slow.

Otherwise, the Z was a blast. Exceptionally controlled, with superb handling. Just watch out for the rough spots.
