I took my bone stock 3.5SE 5 speed to a Honda S2000 club meeting. They wanted to run my car in a straight line and see who would win. I kept beating them over and over. They were pretty mad about a family car beating their sports car. I think the issue is that their engine's horse power kicks in at RPMs above 5850. So, they are slow on the take off and I would get ahead about a car and a half. Then it would kick in and we would then stay at the same speed. Pretty fun though. The V-TEC technology is pretty respectable for 239HP out of a 4 cylinder, but the altima being a car for the family at $15K cheaper beating it again and again was A Lot of fun!
