stock vs stock...take da Z.
stock Z vs RX-7 TT...not fair for da Z.

Z's are heavier, RX-7's have better handling i guess, since their weights are more balancely distributed ...almost 50:50

if you like new cars, take da Z. Cuz you do have to know that da rotary engines are hard to fix if there happens to be something wrong with it.

But rotary engines are coo...really hard to choose.

if you say 300zx(90+) and rx-7, then i would tell you to take da Z for sho'!
cuz i LOVE the 300zx's. but thats just my opinion. :laughing:

If the FD RX7 has a LS1 or 20B in there, get it. If not, get the Z.

Early year 350's had some suspension problems if i remember right. Theyre also really expensive for their class. and they shift weird.

Rx-7 for shizzle!

Just the price difference should convince you, the average price of a third gen RX-7 is about 14k. A 350 costs upwards of 30k.....

i am a 7 advocate but would say, go for the z because honestly, you have to have 1) something wrong with you and 2) patience to work on / own / drive a 7. and i have much of both 1 and 2.

lol! 3rd gen RX7s can be a real nightmare. Love them to death, but no doubt about the reasons for their reputation.

yea my brothers third gen is on its last leg. thing smokes like a tire factory and has some pretty major ol pressure problems. But he will soon have it rebuilt and get a nice stage 3 street port while hes in there.

The RX-7 is a cooler looking car, and gets 17 MPG Highway, and 25 City, which is a bit worse than the Z, about 20HWY and 26City, but the 305Z also costs about twice as much as the RX-7. The 7 performs better, and comes stock with 2 turbochargers...I'm pretty sure. It has a 1.7L engine, but makes over 250 Horspower, even though the 350Z has an engine of 3.5L, and making over 280 Horsepower, the Z weighs about 400 lbs. more. The RX-7 can be modified with the money saved from the 350Z, to have upwards of 300HP. RX-7 All the way.

wow...that was just...wow

First off, switch the city and highway mileage for the rx7, then cange 1.7L to 1.3L, then change the 400lb weight difference to a 700lb wieght difference, and last change the price from twice as much to almost three times as much ($13,400 KBB on the RX7-$36,850 for a new 350z) and your post might be getting somewhere.
