Nissan has updated the software that is used for their GT-Râ€™s launch control and everyone is talking about it. The automaker was telling all of the dealers to reprogram each vehicle in their inventory with the brand new software that had not yet been sold and to keep the extra transmission from grenading.
These changes will limit the RPM maximum that the vehicle can withhold with the VDC on the off position to 3,500. This is a big decrease from 4,500 that was offered in the older program. However, the new software will update the newer and safer form on launch controls that allows the car to takeoff at 3,000 rpm while the VDC is on.
Because of this people are asking Nissan whether or not these updates will hinder the performance or the speed record that it is so famous for. Is the update really worth it?
Sources tell us that the GT-R numbers have not been affected. In fact with the reprogram it was timed at 11.34 at 120.85 mph. This is a great time and is slightly higher when compared to the models built with the original launch control programming.
