So, a STOCK nismo with stock tires and stock aero doing 2:01 compared to two HIGHLY tuned beasts with SHITTONS of suspension work, AND additional aero, AND sticky sticky tires (The TSM was running Hoosier RC's) is really putting it down.

 

I'm REALLY considering getting this controller.

Active suspension and active aero for sure is the way of the future to go faster. Just look at the Huracan Performante, the AMG GTR.

"It enhances the 911’s handling capability, but the system also makes the car’s handling feel somewhat artificial, enough so that some drivers might prefer old-fashioned anti-roll bars."

 

I remember the first time I drove the GT-R and took a "fast" corner at an intersection. The car (at the time) felt so floaty as if there were no roll at all. Now that I've gotten used to the nuances, I bet this will really make the suspension feel new again.

Mike's GTR is not bone stock but it's close.  I've been helping him with the engine tuning and the 2:01 lap was with just 14 psi of boost.  It has downpipes, HKS resonated mid pipe and the Nismo Ti factory cat back along with drop in filters.  He has some additional parts there from us now I'm waiting for him to install, the IDC was 98% so it can't be turned up further on his high boost tune.  He is running pump gas, factory tires/wheels, suspension.

 

The DSC is a plug and play addition to the car, replaces the factory suspension controller.  We are the US distributor for them, if anyone is interested just contact me.

Bit of deceptive marketing at play then. Thanks for the clarification Dave.

I'm with you....I'm a little peeved at the collection:

 

"Armed with nothing but his stock 2015 GT-R Nismo, a DSCsport V1 Controller, and a laptop loaded with the latest DSCsport Tuning Software, Mike Levitas sets a SMASHING lap time of 2:01.5 at Virginia International Raceway’s full course!

For its first track outing, Levitas left the GT-R completely stock (tires, pressure, alignment, etc.), save for the DSCsport V1 Controller. The setup featured stock Dunlop tires, stock tire pressures at 30psi with no nitrogen, and even a stock alignment.

After making improvements to the tuning file in his DSCsport V1 controller over a two day period, Levitas conquered VIR with a mind-bending 2:01.5 on street tires, adding that the GT-R performed “with ease.”

 

Downpipes, a midpipe, and a Bushur tune are not "nothing but his stock 2015 GT-R Nismo".  Dammit.

I didn't realize this was marketing they had done.  I thought someone just knew him and posted details.

I will admit I was a bit dumbfounded by the original post. How much can you really improve just with tuning well tuned suspension.

I can say that a stock NISMO has almost no headroom in the last 500-800 RPM due to injector capacity. They run at 98% stock!

There is huge gains in the mid range, and gains throughout just from increased efficiency.

Lots of optimizing still happening to the platform, for sure. And i agree, pretty exciting! Don't forget the dsc sport control for the tractive dampers.

One thing that might tip me towards ecutek+kaps rather than a Motec is all the OEM tuning that goes into drivability. I'm assuming all that goes thrown out the window when you start from scratch. Maybe Tony can set me straight, but it seems so much more likely to get a well rounded tune if you get to start with OEM as the foundation.

Dave

 

 

I agree with you. Hopefully Some other peeps will chime in. To bad you can't tag people on here like Facebook or twitter

 

 

That is true to an extent. Once modified most of that OEM tuning goes out the window so it's down to the tuner either way (flash or standalone). Our base file drives better than stock on a stock car and the way we modify the tune to suit the mods to the car are designed to keep the rest of the car working based on that stock tune. Eg, changing sensors, injectors, throttle, fuel type, you only need to select the new item form the list in most cases and the car will drive the same.

 

Yeah being able to tag people in posts would be great! For me, if you mention 'Motec' anywhere I'll usually find it eventually (like here)!

 

Darren.

My Motec car (Wayne Potts tuned on Tony's base map) has just awesome drivability given its mods.

 

But I really really think drivability on a modded GTR comes down to the transmission not the engine or injectors or idle or whatever that most people mention. I think the clutches affect the drivability the most. For example, the squawk on gear changes is a mechanical thing... or take off from 1st gear/reverse from a standstill where it's a large function of how early and hard the clutches grab. You can do some tuning around that but a lot of it is mechanical. 

 

Like Darren said, if you really want to compare drivabiliity then stick a Motec or Ecutek on a bone stock car. Or else it's Apples vs Oranges given the mods on the car.
