RACING will officially void the warranty on your new Nissan GT-R
According to the Japanese automaker, “the GT-R is Nissan’s first supercar category vehicle.” Being so, the VR38DETT powered beast is “special, it has special needs and requires special skills. This is sounding more like a girlfriend than Godzilla.
In an attempt to keep out aftermarket tuners from pushing Godzilla so far that he might explode, Nissan has made a few additions to their rulebook. The Japanese automaker doesn’t want companies like Greddy, HKS or even COBB Tuning from cracking their ECUs. But the most blasphemous of all is number three on the list of things that will void the warranty on your GT-R, racing.
It’s true that in Japan, if you go to an approved racetrack, your Nissan super car will unlock itself and perform to the best of its abilities. Sure you have to go to an approved Nissan dealership and have special post-race tuning done at a most likely ridiculous cost, but if you can afford a GT-R, you can afford the trip to the stealership.
So, for starter we ruined out shot at launch control and now Nissan doesn’t even trust us to go to a track day. About the modification part, I wonder if an automaker will ever embrace the aftermarket and make it warranty friendly?
