Hey all, I recall reading a post in the past on another forum regarding a GTR using launch control vs not using launch control (or personal method of launch w/out launch control). It was an interesting post, but had no video evidence. Well, I decided to make a video to document and educate. This is on my 2013 Nissan GTR w/midpipe and stock sized MPSS. Let me know what you think.

Nice coparision but you have to take in to effect LC1 and how much different and brutal it was. All of the original owners basically signed our lives away. This is when the cost a stock Tranny would give you a heart attack

you need to use more octane. 93 with octane booster on a prepped drag strip for best results. 91 Oct is just not enough.

I know right! It was brutal...brutal enough to destroy that expensive transmission :'(

91 is the best pump gas we have here in California unfortunately. I'm sure with better octane, it would perform waaay better.

Nice video.

 

I heard from a lot of people never to put octane booster or additives into your gas. If they have E85 in your area you could get a Pro tune for it with a Cobb AP. One map for 91, one for E85. No need for a $700 flex fuel kit imo.

At 800+whp

 

0-60mph 3.75 no launch control

0-60mph 2.50 with launch control

Bigger turbos suffer even worse without launch control.

Thanks for that video!  That was awesome to see the differences.  And on 91 octane to boot.  I would be curious to see how your car would do with e85, but that is wishful thinking. :)
