I hate to be the bearer of bad news and I do not want to beat a dead GT-R horse but here goes…
Inside Line has confirmed with three contacts at Nissan that they plan to ship 2010 Nissan GT-R’s and newer models without the launch control feature. This may not be a surprise to many due to the hyped talk of the angry customers with broken transmissions and voided warranties. Pretty crazy if you ask me! Wonder what this will do to the 0-60 times… wow, maybe my car has a shot at beating the GT-R from a standstill.. HA, wishful thinking right?
The Inside Line quote:
“It’s gone,” he said when asked if launch control would return in 2010. “We just don’t want to deal with the warranty nightmare anymore. It’ll make the 2009 GT-R really special. It’ll be the only R35 with launch control.”
Do you think this is such a good idea??? I know I would have used Launch Control if I owned a new GT-R!!! How about you?
