Still traps as fast, so it really isn't needed at those power levels.

Wonder what an STi does when not launched at it's peak performance? Oh yeah, mid 14's....

+1 and think, it hits 118 in the 1/4 when bogging on the launch. That's pretty impressive.

They should put a regular manual in it and see what it can do. I would def perfer an old school manual transmission.

Without the launch control it is still fast, but not Godzilla fast as hyped.

The .2 or .3 you gain on the launch would be lost at the 1/2 shift, and you'd lose another 2/10ths at the 2/3 shift and another at the 3/4 (if necessary).

This was a smart move on nissan's part. They never should have included the launch control feature in the first place as the gearbox obviously couldn't handle repeatedly being abused like that. It's still an amazing car. Besides, straight line numbers are boring imo.

Obviously, I mean look at the entire 3 cars that had reported transmission problems. The car clearly has issues if 3 different cars were broken from the owners doing god knows what to them. No other manufacturer has had 3 cars with broken transmissions, especially not Subaru.

The 5speed subie tranny which is what ur talking about has a manual clutch obv and no launch control, therefore excessive abuse is clearly in the fault of the driver. The GT-R has a button so you DONT abuse the dual clutches. Nissan failed on an epic level. Subaru 5speed tranny's that go boom are the drivers fault. BTW never heard of an STi tranny going boom w/ or w/o LC

I agree with most people here. Although its impressive to have the LC times... it was so unneccessary. The car hauls like a mo fo without any help.

What you prefer doesn't mean it would be faster. That's why most manufacturers are opting for the dual clutch gear box.

I've said it before and I'll say it again..

NO AWD transmission will take such a beating day in, day out without breaking something.. Something has to give.. and when it's not the tires doing it, guess what? that transmission has to!

EVERYONE (well.. most anyhow) who owns an AWD car from Subaru, Mitsubishi, Porsche, Lamborghini. Audi (who knows about Bugatti owners, but Bugatti have tossed it out there that new transmissions will go for 130K ), and [insert other maker of high power AWD car here] seems to know this.... apart from a few GTR owners it seems

This is not a case of a car's transmission not being strong enough to take a beating.. NOBODY makes one that can take such abuse.

I knew when I bought my car new that the way in which they were getting the 5.4 0-60 times would lead to something breaking, and that was my first AWD car...

It just baffles me as to how some just don't get it, then complain and throw around the usual threats of class action lawsuits when something breaks..

Some people say that they should put in a 6MT.. Yes, they could do that, but what happens when they start to break also (and they will break)?

I mentioned in another thread that perhaps Nissan's mistake was not including launch control, but making the car so accessible to the masses...

To those who mention that "It's Nissan's fault for putting a feature on the car that will break it"... Every maker of a manual transmission equipped car builds in the "feature" for you to launch it at high rpm also..... yet they won't warrant your stupidity when the transmission strips first gear from a high rpm launch..

Just because a nuclear powered submarine is rated to a maximum depth of 5000 feet does not mean that you want to run around constantly operating at a depth of 5000 feet...

What's an extra paper to sign saying use of LC will result in denied warranty.
