E46 M3 tries to catch up with 370Z at track

But fails?

What's you take on it?

Yep, the 9 year old M3 did pretty well keeping up with the new 370z.

Well, before the 370z went into limp mode at the end. At least thats what the 370z forum is saying.

No one knows the true reason why the 370Z slow down. I highly doubt any Z owners would hit the track without an oil cooler. Unless the owner of the Z chimes in, we won't know.
