I'll be rolling in with Carolina Z Club since my girlfriend has a Z.  My GT-R is still apart for upgrades.  Waiting on parts that won't be in until next week.

I'm glad to *finally* see some NISMO GT-Rs being used how they were meant to be driven... around corners.  Far more interested in hearing feedback and times on lap-to-lap comparisons between the NISMOs and the regular GT-R models than I'll ever car about nearly meaningless 1/4-mile runs.

I bet when this or whatever variant of GTR appears our cars will stabilize in price./
our cars will be more like old school tt supras /Acura Nsx...those cars are not cheap and are used.
I think there is some truth to this.  It is not a direct analogy, but the R35 will likely be desired because it is the model that can be more easily and more effectively modified going forward.  The R36 will have a lot of new technology including hybrid motors.  The aftermarket will take some time to catch up and learn how to exploit that.  Because of that, the R35 will retain some following.  How that plays out in pricing is another matter.  There are quite a few GT-Rs in the US now... comes down to supply and demand.

All reviews point to them being on par with mpss or slightly better for the track. They probably fall off a bit in the rain. Oddly I have a few friends with non gtrs that complain blocks have ripped off during track days though.

I'd sacrifice a little wear for a little better track grip.  I use the MPSS double duty... this year not withstanding, I usually do 2-4 track weekends a year.  Even with that, I still get 20K+ out of the MPSS.  If the BFGs can last 16K-20K under similar use and are no louder for road noise, I'll give them a try next time.  Have not heard of the blocks issue.  I'll have to watch for some more info on that.

I've seen some teasers of Red Katana phase 2 (or is it 3?  maybe 4?)... I dunno what iteration Jon is on, but it looks like it will be worth waiting for.  And I'm very excited to see the R32 build start.
