    This guy has way more self control than I. There is no possible way in hell I could pussyfoot that car around any track regardless of whether or not the owner was sitting next to me. I'd probably pull into the pits, trick the owner into getting out of the car, blast right back out onto the track, and rape the holy hell out of that GTR. Good review, but it is a shame that the car was driven so lightly.

    I don't know why you'd want to run a 3800+ lbs. car on a racetrack anyway.

    I saw a page from the owners manual that has multiple places the write in new serial numbers of each transmission you go through.

    Why not? I don't expect anybody to pussyfoot my car around! I was actually making fun of my buddy at the last track event I went to because he was driving my car like an old lady, and he STILL spun out!

    Thanks for the response guys!

    I'll see if I can get a chance to drive the car towards its limits under better conditions next time!

    As for the video, its with my friend. I still have to ask him for it.

    some GTR owners told me those broken tranny was doing launch start like 20~30 times a night, i think if you do that for coule weekends, any tranny can break

    and you can turn off VDC without void the warranty, what they really meant "track" is "drag strip" track i think, so it's still possible someone will come to track with VDC off
