The legend is real: Nissan GT-R

There has been a lot of talking regarding the launch control feature of Nissan GT-R. This feature in the GT-R will help the drivers reach 60mph in 3.9 seconds which is a good option for drivers who wanted to control or even slow down a bit. But speed hog, the launch control is a bitter sweet additional feature. Using the launch control in Nissan GT-R will potentially void your warranty in case something happens in your car. Specifically, the transmission could easily break down if the launch control is constantly used. This is a little bit unfortunate for those who wanted to be really fast. It’s like a constant bait to destroy your transmission – use it and risk voiding your warranty.

But if you’re problem is just the speed, then don’t worry. Nissan GT-R could still reach the coveted 60mph in just 3.9 without the launch control. That means you just have to floor your Nissan GT-R and you can reach 60mph in 3.9 seconds. That also means you can just discard the launch control although this feature could ease the driver’s need to control while increasing speed considerably.

There are those, however, that opted to continue with their launch control feature while being able to enjoy the warranty. If you have been working with the launch control for sometime, you are now able to properly use this feature. With the right timing, you should be able to use the launch control without any problem. But remember, you can achieve the same result if you just floor the gas pedal.
