From what I've seen manufacturer approved upgrades always cost way above the market value. The only attraction is for people with restrictive usage conditions for whom aftermarket parts aren't possible.Can´t understand why they didn´t say something about the 500% GTR Tax.....that is a pure ripoff,as usual by Nissan.....car doesn´t really get better in any area im sure but they charge you money as half the new car costs......for basicly nothinguke:
Im sure a standard GTR modded with 5 grand will outrun the Nismothing on any track....even if you dont buy a COBB AP and just go for basic things like 15mm spacers,springs,ARB and better brakepads....:thumbsup:
According to [email protected] when we spoke about a month ago, I'm sure he said they are Nismo remaps/ecu's for both. Could be wrong on the ecu bit thoughAnd also mentioned are the engine and gearbox remaps from Middlehurst. Are they going to do something Cobb based or is this something new?
interesting; i wonder if this is the jdm 'rented' ecu item?
From speaking with Andy I think the re-tune from Nismo 'optimises' track performance, and you definitely get more torque low down, and better/smother shifting with the transmision remap/ecu, plus the suspension is supposed to be the bollox compared to OEM.interesting; i wonder if this is the jdm 'rented' ecu item?
I still think Nissan are missing a trick, by not cornering the light re-tune market with an official warrantied ecu product

I suppose it all depends on the individual on what Nismo should be offering - me personally, if it ain't a Mine's 35 (I lolspasm'ed at the price to throw away any warranty whatsoever) it has to be a Clubsport as I don't want a VSpec as they are not good value. I would compare it to a Porsche GT3 Comfort(35)/GT3 Cubsport(Nismo Clubsport)/GT3RS(VSpec) scenario.
We've all seen real tools on trackdays driving RS's (well I have anyway:bawling and I'd rather find I'm tracking my car at 95% of it's ability (100% of mine), after time, than find I've got a spooled up 600bhp tool that makes me look like a tool on the track, when I'm driving it at 75% coz 'I might not be as good/fast as I think I am' = most people on car forums and trackdays IMHO
I think Nismo have it right, save for the price, but exclusivety will help the depreciation as Nismo log it as a 'Clubsport'..... it is a 35, but finely tuned for the guy who wants a warranty on trackday mods, and not for the guy who's kidding himself he can handle 600bhp on a track at full welly
Just my 2p:thumbsup:
Lol mate, you weren't driving an 996GT3RS at Spa in Nov 2007 were you?Go on you know you want to:smokin: and what's with the fanny 600hp:sadwavey:: whether you can handle it or not, lifes to short to live within limits:smokin:
PS: i'm the dick head that T bones you
Worse! I'm the dick head who has never tracked other than academy day...tuned the beast already way way way beyond my capabilities but recon if i get 700 WHP and use 60% because i'm old and shite i'll at least have a GREAT time.Lol mate, you weren't driving an 996GT3RS at Spa in Nov 2007 were you?
Know what you mean, but getting older and uglier funnily enough makes you (well me) wiser. Putting it into persective for me at least, I absolutely caned lap upon lap two GT3RS's and a GT2 at Croft, with an original Carrera2 Cup fully caged two up.... so only speaking from a Porsche owners angle, sometimes more power is less ......imho
And yes I want to:thumbsup:
Lol John, you sound like me 26 years ago, without my little girl born 20 months ago :thumbsup: you will certainly have funWorse!

I'll still look like a dick but as i said earlier lifes too too short
good talking mate:thumbsup:
