if im right the launch control on the gtr was very problematic and some people would have to get transmission or clutch replacements even after using it twice.

I wonder how many beasts your garage handle everyday. Do you get good sleep at night knowing the fact that so many horses are waiting to be ridden??

Moreover, How do you decide which one to take out on a particular day, when all the ones parked out there are super exotics !!
Is it like, if its kinda wet outside so lets not spoil the lambo and just take the Bimmer out or maybe if someday when you feel kinda grounded and rooted to earth, you may take out the lambo coz its lower than the M3 I seriously want to know this
Just kidding !!

Woah, Congrats for adding the mighty GODZILLA to your collection buddy. Desperately waiting for the pics.

Not sure guys where you read that there won't be any launch control? Nissan has already released 2010 program for launch control that has been applied to all Oz cars here. They have reprogrammed the software to launch the car less agressively than before and that's why they are reporting slower times with new program

Guys,

We have a whole thread on possible GTR Transmission issues. It would be best to discuss vehicle specific stuff there :
