2009 Nissan GT-R

Just to put a little more flame on the fire.....Porsche may have disclaimers in their warranty info about racing...but PCNA (Porsche Cars North America) and PCA (Porsche Club of America) both encourage their customers/members to explore the performance of their cars in organized Drivers Education/trackday type events. The Porsche experience is not about 0-60 times but more about the overall balance and handling envelope of the car, and yes they are made to stand up to it. I have been able to take my Cayman S twice to DE events at a private track near San Marcos, both events were PCA sponsored and featured PCNA employees at them giving out driving tips and goodies. Ferrari and Lotus do this too, they have Cup programs that even encourage their customers to race their cars at company supported events. This is not meant to be hatin' on the GT-R, but until Nissan realizes that if you want to sell a performance car, you also need to back that up with corporate support.

Eh!, you are about 18 hours too late for anymore fuel. Thanks for coming to the party though.

Ok boys and girls, the Black GT-R is no longer available, I sold it today and it has found a new home. We went over the whole thing, manuals and all concerning the vehicle. Yes, even told him about the VDC contorl. Another satisfied guest. Looks like it is gonna be a good Xmas.

Oh, my earlier post was about the fact that I found out the "magic number" for turning the VDC control off, so you can do burnouts. I can only tell you that it is under 20 times.

So you can turn VDC off only somewhere under 20 times, but while VDC is off you can do an unlimited number launches?

This is where your common sense comes in jm1, or at least it is supposed to. Remember, the "black box" tells all. So, that would be somewhere under 20 times if you wanted to perform the "Launch Control" trick, it would seem. However, that may be only PART of the formula. Like I said, it is at your own detriment, how you wish to drive your GT-R. I would not recommend turning the VDC off and performing "unlimited launches." My best guess would be for everytime you turn the VDC off, you are granted ONE launch with that Golden Ticket.

But then you're free to pay another $80k if you would like another ride, right?

No, if you destroy the tranny and you have voided the warranty for your reckless driving, then it would make a much better move, monetarily, to simply have the transmision fixed.

The Nissan GT-R is a full-fledged supercar at a "regular guy" price.

Top Gear had a go with it a couple of times in recently, and it's a charmer of a car. The price above is MSRP, which is good considering how rare this car is. If the economy wasn't hurting so much, it would be going for way above MSRP with a waiting list a year long.

$80K is not a "regular guy" price.
