I just spoke to my service adviser at Nissan and he told me when i Launch my 2010 GTR not to put the R button up..Then why is it there im confused if its so dangerous to put it on why put the thing there in the first place. I thought it was there specifically for the launch purpose...Please help im confused:(((((

he doesnt know what he is talking about

as long as you dont turn the VDC to OFF you can launch it as much as you want within reason

now with that said the launch in the 2010 is set up that you dont have to have the buttons in any particular configuration...but changing them to R has no bearing on harming the car in any way

There are a lot of threads regarding voiding warranty if you launch the GTR with R mode off and you have a transmission problem due to the launch (I believe some have had theirs denied even when the transmission failed sometime after the launch).
The R mode off is to disable traction control so it doesn't interfere with driving on a road course for those drivers who can push the GTR to its limit without going off the track. I would suggest leaving traction control on while at the track until you push the GTR hard enough to intervene. It was not initially designed for launching as per Nissan.
With R mode off you will also get a better launch due to the traction control not acknowledging wheel slip and cutting power (maybe someone can correct me, but in the 2010, don't you have to have R mode engaged to launch?

no you dont have to have R mode engaged for LC2.. you can launch it with all the setting in the middle normal position..but i suggest atleast putting VDC in R so it will be a bit more relaxed on traction coming on

Alright so let me get this straight if i leave all the switches in the neutral position and I "launch" its fine but if i use the R mode it will give me more of a bite??? I know the 2010 the RPM's were brought down to 3000 to resist blowing up the rear. so listen guys if you were me and a worthy opponent pulls next to me put R up or go neutral??? fire away boys!! by the way thanks for the help I really appreciate it:)

R mode doesnt make the launch faster or give the car more power...it just would make the gear shifts a bit quicker and would make the traction control a little less likely to come on and botch the launch.. other than that it would be the same

The 2010 has LC2, which is around 2500-2700RPMs for launch (adjusted by pumping the throttle after RPMs level off).

The 2011 has LC3, which is around 3300 RPMs.

*edit: The service adviser is an idiot. Name? I don't mind calling ignorant Nissan employees who don't know crap about their own products (solidifies my derogatory view towards people who work at dealerships).

FYI turning VDC Off doesn't trigger an event in the blackbox

Excessive wheelspin with VDC Off triggers an event

Launch the 2010 LC2 with the 1st toggle and the VDC (3rd toggle) both in R (race) mode. I keep the suspension (2nd toggle) in its softest ride mode to allow more give to the suspension during the launch.

It will be faster and is more fun. Otherwise I agree with most comments above, and it won't void your warranty!

This is wrong . Iv seen it with my own eyes on the consult 3 black box data, theirs a VDC line . Showing BOolean input . Which means on = 0 and off = 1 . An the other scale of the graph is the milleage .. That's what I saw
