:) 9 mins 25 in "suddenly the car hydroplanes in the pouring rain" - at 155mph I would have had a SERIOUS brown trouser moment...

Also looks like there isn't a Japanese word for "bypass" :thumbsup:

I have hydroplaned at a slightly higher speed to that in an evo and it was dramatic but i got it back and it did take abit more fighting of the steering wheel lol. Watching that shows how amazing the car truely is. Very composed indeed:clap:

You might get away with that 90% of the time in a GT-R, but it's not the recommended way to deal with aquaplaning, in case anyone here thinks it is!

Just gently lift off the power and don't steer until the tyres are back on the tarmac.

I drove through some torrential rain and deeply flooded motorway yesterday and the Bridgetones were fine. Traction under acceleration was another matter... :D

I can't remember but I believe you have gone from Dunlops to Bridgestornes, for general road use and occasional track, would I be correct in stating the Bridgestones are probably prefered. I understand Dunlops will be superior under ideal conditions, ps I live in Scotland we rarely get to sample ideal conditions.

Hi Lindsay, yes you are correct, I did switch from the OEM Dunlops to Bridgestones. I will put up my long-promised comparison review shortly.
