In what most would call retribution a dealer bulletin was released to day from Nissan to all GT-R approved dealers to reprogram the launch control software on all GT-R’s awaiting delivery and to “strongly encourage” current GT-R driving customers to bring in their cars for a re-flash as well.
Most suspect this is all to appease the rumors that ran rampant across the interwebs that using the GT-R’s launch control more than 12 times or so would gernade the transmission. Which subsiquently would not be covered by the iron clad warranty due to having to turn off VDC to engage the launch control. The new parameters sets the launch RPM to about 3000 to 3500 rather than the current limit of 4500 RPM and also reprograms the clutch for less shock on the driveline.
