    cars are the only thing that someone will pay 80+k for and beat up. most people that spend that kind of money on things put it in a glass case.:notgood:

    Is that car a 7 speed auto?

    You SHOULD be able to beat on that car...Isn't that what it was made for? Must be all for show :(

    His fault according to the manual.

    But WHAT BS! I mean I agree. At 80k and with that pedigree of GT-R I'd expect over-engineering so that the car will take a TON of abuse at unmodified stock levels.

    Okay ppl lets be practical how many times can you launch a DSM with 500hp 34 times consecutively in one day? I bet you you not much.

    Secondly this is a 3800lb car 34 launches is ALOT consecutively.

    You guy guys think this is expensive? I bet you the people who buy them don't.

    Think about it.

    1990 had a junk drivetrain, 22 spline t-case, single syncro 1-2, 3 bolt rear end
    mid 1991 it got a bit better
    mid 1992 it got a bit better

    At least we didn't have to pay almost 100k to wait 3 years until it was safe to buy one.

    I have no idea what I'm trying to prove. I guess nothing, ignore me.

    Doesn't matter if it's 3800 pounds. They should have designed the drivetrain to handle the power and weight properly.

    That's like saying you shouldn't tow stuff with a diesel truck?!?!?!? That's what IT'S MADE FOR!!!.

    You've never driven a 24 valve Cummins they put in the Ram have you?

    "Here, have the greatest engine you can tow with mated up with a transmission that wont tow sh*t."

    Seriously, I love the suspension, I love the axles, I LOVE the engine, the rest of the truck is absolute junk. Regardless, I was power sliding it around rainy corners today. Ever powerslide a house? Amazing...

    durdurdur yeah you couldn't be anymore wrong yes it does matter.

    You race your car? 20 hard ass launch full blown acceleration 230F fluid temps ? Expect it to act like one which requires pit stops, dissassmbling after race days stuff like this doesn't it like and launching a 3800lb car that has tons of grip that will wreck just about everything. Where are you ? Yes that's right DSM tuners you should know better.

    They simply put turn off the active system and break the car on launch control and your warranty is void they are being smart now it's nothing new like marking a vehicles vin from racing abuse so it doesn't get warranty service.


    350z's G35's all of them my friend replaced his 4 times beating the living hell out of his car the dealer was changing it for him though.

    HOLY CRAP, I tried to argue that point on another forum. Somebody finally agrees. I figured I wouldn't get into it here simply because 95% of the people on the other forum expect these cars to be indestructable.

    haa No one said they should be indestuctable...but It should not break after a month. sh** My car is 12 years old and has 123,000 miles...STOCK tranny and stock internals. I have Launched it Hundreds of times. According to you guys it should break every day huh?

    Maybe the guy was rough on the car...but come on...If they don't want you to use the VDC then why have a switch for it?!?!?!

    Nissan has always been junk IMO...whats new? Thats why they switched their name from DATSUN LOL....Thats a Datsun GTR ROFL.... If I had the Money I'd buy a vett. Why don't those break after each run like you suggest???

    And Yes I have driven the new 2009 Ram 3500 Cummins Diesel Dually. And let me just say I go to a truck pull at Yankee lake in Ohio...and guess what wins the tug of war EVERYTIME??? a DODGE RAM.
    They must not have that bad of a tranny.
    90% of the time the RAM wins cause the Chevy or ford its Pullin Snaps a drive shaft or some other failure. I have seen it happen 100 diffrent times. YET I have NEVER seen a RAMs tranny fail....I HEAR about their trannys being NO GOOD, but never saw actual PROOF.

    What about the 255 mph Bugatii Veyron? It weights 4200 pounds has a 1000 horsepower W16 QUAD Turbo and its AWD ROFL I'm sure those break every day huh? Im sure Bugatii didn't FORSEE someone "racing their car" hahaha...If you have the Balls to make quote "SUPERCAR"....then make it fu*king "SUPER".

    DUR DUR DUR

    It's Not rediculous to expect Performance out of a performance car?!?!?! Nissan has to expect people are going to abuse these cars.

    Maybe this guy was exssesive...but nissan should at least cover it ONCE under warranty...if it happens again...then tell the guy to get lost.

    First off, do you have 500hp? How about do you have an automatic transmission with a transbrake? Do you know what a transbrake is and why you shouldn't keep launching your car off of it over and over, hot lapping? Even though the GT-R is a Automatic style Manual, how do you think the launch control puts enough of a load on the engine to be able to build boost the way it does? Something in there is going to keep slipping, keep heating up, and you will bust the crap out of it. I doubt these transmissions are made out of glass and fairy farts. Problem is, you're getting too many people that have too much money that don't know how to drive these cars. Doesn't mean you can't rag on them, just means you've got to know your limits. Race cars NEED rebuilding a LOT, this isn't any different.

    My ram has 168,000 miles on it's first transmission and I haul a LOT with it, but I know the tranny has its limits and I know how to keep it going. However, a lot of people will break these trannies at 100,000 miles give or take. They don't watch their temps, they tow like HELL with the overdrive on and they put a lot of pressure on it that the tranny just can't take because the engine produces too much torque for it at that level.

    Either way, you take the money you will never have for one of these cars and buy a Vette you will never be able to afford anyway.:thumb:

    I could hardly read past this, but once again ignorance shines.

    How can you compare a "race car" that's less than $100k to buy, vs a car that was $2.5 million to build? Veyron will still have it's problems, but it's going to be built with a few better parts and a little better care.

    Your buddy midship said no car with AWD that is 3800 pounds could last with out fixing it after each run LOL. I guess you guys just make sh** up. Face it boss you'd be pissed too if your crap ass 90,000 dollar Nissan Broke after two months....I launch hard all the time in my old ass DSM. Just face it, the Nissan has a FLAW...Most cars do in the first year or two of production. So keep thinking you're the smartest guy in the world.

    Thanks for proving my Point...that a 1,000,000 dollar car is built better than a 100,000 dollar car....That's why I think the 100,000 dollar nissan should be built better than my 20,000 dollar DSM...I'll say it again for you slower short bus riders, ITS NOT rediculous TO EXPECT performance from a performance car. DUR DUR

    Oh buddy, your mighty 101mph DSM can withstand ALL THAT POWER?? What a beast. Come back when you've got some knowledge under your belt.

    Edit: I just read your last part. Top of this page (second page here). Oh, wait you just repeated what I said didn't you? Cute.

    So what knowledge are you sharing with us tonight oh mighty one??? That a Nissan GTR so called Supercar is supposed to break every 10 miles? LOL You must have gotten dropped on your head as a child.

    Thanks for helpng us all understand that This GTR is JUNK.

    Yeah Rag on my 101 all you want...but the GTR runs a 12.0 at 114...I guess that ain't sh** to you either? What do you run in the 1/4 mile???

    OHHH 114 ALL that POWER?? OH BUDDY good ole GTR can't even handle its own stock engine hahahahaha POS.

    Nekoni you should sell your DSM and go put a down payment on a GTR since they're so awesome. You can drive it around NICE and easy, as per the owners manual....

    what your still not getting is that its the trans brake killing the transmission, if you knew what a transbrake was or how it worked you would know that it kill just about ANY tranmission its used on rather quickly, which is why nissan voids the warranty if theres any damage caused from using it

    I know what a transbrake is bro....and MY point is WHY make the car able to do that Function if it is going to break the car/ void the warranty? seems like a failure on Nissans part.

    Lets see if Nissan Corrects the problem...The guy said there is OTHERs in the same boat he is in....HMM sounds like the beginings of a RECALL to me :)
