GTR number 3

Just picked up my new GTR. Was looking at MY12 and MY13 cars, but after driving the MY14, I decided to buy a new one. Got a good deal as well.

After driving the MY11, MY12 and MY13, Im more than impressed how the MY14 feels compared to them. Completely ruined the older cars for me, so had no choice to new one

The new lights are lovely as well as a few interior touches.

Couple of pics, Ill get some more up of the lights when it gets a bit darker

Welcome back does it feel majorly different to the MY12/13?

Major differences, no, but certainly feels better on the road. Cant quite put my finger on what. The car being brand new certainly will factor in. Also the new tyres arent bad at all for run flats.

Its the all round package, not just a single element. The new light just top it all off

I also didnt pay list price either, so was a no brainer.

Good choice on the MY14, good play on price

Look forward to meeting you at Blyton.

Aye, staying stock, apart possibly from some R888's

One of the reasons I bought a new one, was so I can leave it alone. Ive paid for the service pack etc... so nothing to pay for three years except for consumables

Nice car See the sprint events, do you still need to get Nissan to do the pre and post checks or are the sprints not hard enough on the car to warrant that?

The sprint arent hard on the car IMO. I might change the gearbox oil more often, but thats about it

I keep changing my mind on whether I want to do any form of track event in the car or whether to buy something second hand thats going to be fairly cheap to run, insure and replace parts and use that as a track car.

In my view, there is no point having the cars we do, unless you use them properly.

Sprints are the best way to do it as you only do a certain amount of laps and you have half and hour in between runs for your car to cool down.

Get booked on Blyton.

See part of me thinks that then the other part of me reminds myself that all the events take place an absolute mile away from where I live and it reminds me that tyres cost an absolute bomb lol.

I might do a tuition day at knockhill, see how I get on and then make a decision on that. Anybody run 19" wheels as track wheels or does nobody do that?

By the time youve bought some 19s and tyres, you might as well have bought some R888's

Also, if you plan on taking a spare set to the track, you'll need another car, cause they wont fit in the GTR

I would change before going to the track.

Just trying to figure out the best way to go about this because I'm fairly new to it all, only done one experience track day haha, but I really want to get into it! #noob

You are perhaps reading a little too much into it

Just turn up to Blyton with a helmet and a fire extinguisher, and youre good to go.

Yeah probably making it more confusing than it needs to be.

Haha easy enough apart from me being 300 miles away :P.

Probably get some tuition and try to get some track experience in other cars before I embarrass myself lol
