    Is it FWD or RWD?

    The engine cover is deceptive.

    you can tell by the seating position.

    How does FWD go with a 3.5L v6?

    Works for me I guess. I'm sure RWD would be better. Haven't driven a RWD with the 3.5, so I have nothing to compare with.

    RWD is MUUUUCH better....I kind of like the little bit of torque steer I get with the FWD because it makes things more interesting, but traction is very hard to come by among the other obvious advantages to RWD (weight distribution, throttle steering, etc.). It can still be a very fun car to push, though...Overall I'm very happy with my purchase and would do it again in a heartbeat (What other car can you get with 29k miles for $16k that runs low 14s, has manual transmission, is this comfortable and reliable, and gets 32 mpg?)

    :rly:

    Here's my timeslip. I got a 2.3 60' even so it had more in it...I just had horrible traction because I have bald tires and my motor mounts are going bad. I even included the penny :naughty:

    It has a VQ35....the lowest recorded 6-speed time is a 14.0 that I know of and there are several who have run 14.1s

    Thats nothing special, but in the 14's for a stock sedan that isn't performance orientated is.

    :werd: I definitely am not very impressed with 11s as the quickest maxima ever...granted nobody cares enough to build the engine (iirc, that [email protected] is with the stock VQ35..) but still....and yes, IMO low 14s is quick enough for a family sedan and it's definitely impressive stock.
