Digging up an old thread here.  I'm looking at getting a driving rig upgrade.  It is down to this GTR touring simulator or the OpenWheeler Advanced racing seat.  They both are comparably priced, have full adjustability (important because my fiance and I are drastically different sizes for driving), look to have comfortable seats, and are pretty well reviewed.

Will be interested to see if anyone here has good/bad experiences with either of them.  My current rig is not as stable (some wiggle where pieces connect) and seat is awful.  Using this with XBox and Forza primarily.

Any input is appreciated :)

At least they are still plugging away at it.  Hopefully they can get it to a competitive level.  I'd still love for us to do a GT-R community event at a race here in the US where this car runs.

The perception of the GTR has changed and that has created the "$80K or less demand for a new GTR".  I truly believe potential customers have moved on to other brands.  That is not to say that they will not be back; but R36 or another reason must re-create the interest.  Owners that lost $30K-35K or more on their GTRs at resale will think carefully about their purchases.

^this... At it's price point, there are newer platform cars out there that perform as well or better and have a 'newer' look.  Like it or not and regardless of performance, the R35 is an 8-yr old platform.  There is much higher demand for nice used examples at a lower price point than for fresh off the lot cars even with dealer incentives.

Personally, I think Nissan should retire the R35.  They don't need constant production to maintain interest as long as the R36 is coming relatively soon (say the next 3-5 years).  The aftermarket and enthusiast interest will keep the R35 and GT-R nameplate on the radar during the hiatus.

Just saw the post on FB.... wish I had a reminder because Nicole and I are basically at home doing nothing today.  Oh well, maybe next month.  I found the FB group and requested an add, so maybe next time.  :)
