Anyone ever get like this?

So I have had my 350z auto for two weeks now and driving it daily. I drove my fiances 04 gt auto off and on for abou a year now. I haven't drove it in two weeks now and when I got In it to drive everything was so different lol. The speedo and everything else seems like miles away to see and reach lol. The brakes are... The handling is so different. I feel like its my first time ever driving this. It wasn even that bad when I drove my 99 cobra as a dd. anyone else feel like this after driving another vehicle for a while?

Try my routine. Focus/f250/focus everyday and swap to cobra/gt/lx on the weekends. I don't ever really get used to any of them...

I've gone between Ram 1500, Hyundai Sonata, Minivan, VW Cabrio, Mustang, and Corvette... Feels kinda weird to drive between all of them, i get used to it though. I like the Mustang the best, Corvette is just too quiet for me.
Also drove 2 of my friends from high school's cars. A guy i worked with, drove his car and his 2011 Tacoma (took that on a back road, really twisty, bumpy. Lots of ups and downs... I drove it harder than he did). The parents of my best friend let me drive their truck 2 times.
Most people i know trust me to drive their cars.

Yes! After I drive the woman's 13' VW Jetta for a few days straight I notice that the car is made sturdier than Fords. Runs and drives better no question. Even with Brembo Upgrade, I realize Mustang braking is terrible. Put your foot on the brake pedal of the VW and it STOPS. Lol.

Unfortunately for VW, the Mustang is lot of fun to drive. The VW is not. Very boring and lame in some ways. Mustang is always fun, enjoyable.

I wish Ford would put decent brakes on the car, drop the offroad susp, include a nicer shifter. That way maybe we will stop getting crapped on by every slower Camaro reviewed in head to head comparison by all the mags.
