I raced a current gen. Maxima on Saturday. I beat him off the line, but he caught up to me and passed me by the end of 2nd gear. I kept trying until about mid 3rd, but then I gave up, because I wasn't gaining any ground.

Awwwww man, really? The 222hp and 217ft-lbs tq version? Was it an automatic or standard. I'm guessing a standard becuase I don't think an auto would win. But you did say that you had him off the line, so maybe it was an auto.

I'm pretty sure he had a stick, because we were both revving at each other before the race.

Those newer Maximas with the V6 are no slouch, especially the standard. I'm sort of surprised that he beat you though. I think they have a good power to weight ratio. I've always liked those Maximas though. Even the older ones with the V6 would go.
