I sent your questions to my contact at SpeedVentures. I will include the answers in my next e-mail update.

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.

Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you.

Thanks for the answers.
For everyone else, it's self tech and don't sign up for the timing equipment, just put 350z in the run group.

I signed up

The first 350Z Challenge racetrack event, held June 4, 2004 on the big road course at Willow Springs Raceway in SoCal was a success. We had 8 350Zs, 2 300ZX TTs, and about 10 G35s (2 sedans and the rest coupes), among the 60 cars that showed at Big Willow on June 4, 2004. Here are some pics.

Well, it's not really a true race. Almost everyone used timing equipment to time their laps, but I did not pay attention to who had the best lap times because, with my broken hand, I ran with the beginners and did not use timing equipment. But I did get out there and got about 3 hours actual driving time.

As far as I know, no 350Z went off the track. An S2000 did spin out into the dirt a little ways in front of me. A great time was had by all.
