The driver was the co-owner of Always Evolving (AE) Roger Rodas who is also Paul's friend & business partner. RIP to both of them.

Lexus sold all 500 LFA's with relative ease but the used market is challenging for that particular car and most are on the market for several months and often longer.

Back on topic, I hope pricing info for both nismo variants is released soon!

What makes you say that they weren't addressed? Just like the track pack - the Nismo has front brake ducts which should help dramatically with the cracking rotors. I'm not sure if anyone has put enough track miles on a track pack GTR to find out yet?
As for the trans, you can see BIG air vents above the rear bumper that are undoubtedly for cooling the trans/diff/gas tank and everything else under the trunk of the car. How much does it help? Well that's debateable but it does appear to me that they have made improvements to cooling in those areas. We won't know if it's enough until people start buying them and beating on them a bit.

BTW - great job Nismo! This is much better than I was expecting! And thanks for the outstanding coverage MC.



Agreed they did some unique things to the body to help cooling to some extent but specifically I was hoping for additional trans & diff. coolers to address the high track temps.

How do you guys feel about the total lack of cooling upgrades and no ceramic brakes? These are the two biggest shortcomings for the NISMO imo as these should be included for the apprx. $150k price point.
