Yeah, I was disappointed they used that wording, especially when the only thing test mule about it was this was one of the cars Nissan North America was testing suspension settings on for US roads. You notice what they state about the car in comfort mode on rough road now. This should make all those that were so worried about a rough ride happy.yep... excellent article. though, the naysayers are going to be quick to point out "engineering test mule"
Great to be here mate and yes it does meet the standard and exceeded them!!!Well that just goes to show u that the engine must be far under reated as mentioned in the article... I really dont care bout the weight now, but when/if the spec V comes hope the car goes on a serious diet.
Still cant wait to get the car and add exhaust/cpu, and a little more boost, can u say rocket?????
I don't think Nissan would be stupid enough and not have the production car slower than the tester. Remember this is HUGE for Nissan, also the GT-R tested had 3500 miles on it. They say cars get a little quicker as they break in.... i am more than happy with this test
Also when u consider the other test in Road and Track, how can they have a production vehicle. I did not believe they made any yet? Sure they have a US Spec, but no mass production cars are available.
KING IT IS GOOD TO SEE U BACK ON A THREAD I CREATED.... HOPE IT MEETS THE STANDARDS OF ROYALTY
They actually got it wrong. It didn't have the cold weather package -- note the gunmetal wheels in all the photos, and if you look in the actual tire specs, the tires are the Dunlops that come standard with the base model -- Dunlop high performance Y rated tires (the Dunlop all-seasons are W rated). What they actually tested (also based on price) was a base model with i-Pod option. The base is just a wee bit lighter than the premium.The car tested had the cold weather pkg!
