correct me if i'm wrong.. but i'm pretty sure that nissan doesn't replace the gtr tranny's that go for like 25k a piece.. and wouldn't you think it's kind of stupid that you're paying 200k for a car that can't be used to its full potential off the line? but then again that's if what you said is correct.. all in all.. yeah, im defending the "cheaper" car lol, cuz with the same money invested in a gtr.. its highly doubtful any of these cars would keep up on the 1/4 or a track for that matter lol
