GT Channel Interview Mizuno-san on GT-R Launch Controversy

April 23rd, 2009


Sam Mitani, of Road & Track magazine, tests out the Series II Nissan GT-R 0-60 acceleration performance at Nissan’s Tochigi test track. He then sits down and asks the tough questions to Mizuno-san regarding the so called “launch control” function of the GT-R.

Sticking to the letter of the owners manual, Mizuno-san explains that the VDC off mode is and always has been useful only to free the car if stuck in snow or mud and not for launching.

Now that the GT-R has a VDC on “launch control” mode available to current and owners it pretty much takes all the controversy away but stil… Thanks Sam for asking these questions we all wanted to hear answered officially.
