The Nissan GT-R is just too fast, which has led to some fights on the web concerning warranties that have been canceled due to the utilization of the integrated Launch Control.
In contrast to an earlier report that Nissan means to remove Launch Control from the 2010 GT-R, the blog on Motor Trend's is saying that no assessment has been made at this point and the same is heard from Nissan itself.
The lager point that Motor Trend goes on to demonstrate is that the GT-R is still totally fast even without Launch Control.
When the publication got its initial break at the R35, samplers tried an acceleration run just for fun with all the electronics assistance active excluding the Launch Control.
The result was an acceleration of 0 to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds achieved by flooring the pedal.
That speed is sufficient to maintain the GT-R with the same group with which it's already been categorized, and with the computers operating, there's no chance of freezing at start and getting left behind by a '93 Duster.
So, there's really no need to risk a $20,000 transmission replacement; the GT-R is still a very fast.
