I'm more of a road coarse guy (VIR, Road America, Putnam Park to date - all in Corvettes Z06/ZR1), but I occaisonally go to the drag strip too (it's all fun to me) - so I can relate to both sides of the coin here,
but Avanti tell me this...
When you tell your car buddies and other non-carguys how fast your GT-R does 0-60 - what do you tell them? based on your logic you better not say low to mid 3's...
Nissan's integrity is questionable.
I agree 100%
It's funny how many people are such NISMOS that they actually don't see it. They sold us a car where factory executives are on video bragging about how quick this car is 0-60 and all the magazines where given the "launch code". Now a few people are defending Nissan as if they owned it.
Fine lets just say for the sake of argument you don't ever launch your car but you want to drive it hard on the track. You can't turn off VDC and drive the car. Remember no Launches! They still will void your warranty. Because according to a certain Nissan engineer I spoke to, "that voids your warranty". Maybe, that removes the Torque management and in turn weakens certain parts? Maybe they know this? That's why they don't want us to turn it off.
I want to see anyone get that 7.29 sec run on "the ring" without turning off VDC. So PLEASE stop saying it's about the LC.
And for the record, I'm not a drag racer, while in the past I've enjoyed racing on a 1/4 mile track. It's not my preference, like most of you the turns is where my heart is at. That's the reason I'm bothered about the VDC. I will like to feel how the car behaves on the turns without the nannies. But after recent developments I don't dare find out.
