Yeah, Japan presumes the prosecutor is right.  You have to prove your innocence.

 

As far at a GT-R goes, until they fix the cooling for the brakes and the transmission to stand up to the tracks that I go to regularly, there is no way I will own a track GT-R.  I'm too hard on the brakes for the GT-R.

 

In contrast, on my 2018 M5, I pound on the brakes just as hard at the SAME tracks, and I use STOCK pads, and they stand up to the abuse.  The front rotors had two years of track events on them, and I replaced them because there were tiny cracks at the crossdrilled holes.  Mind you, these are the STOCK rotors and STOCK pads, and they are cheaper than AFTERMARKET rotors and pads for the GT-R.  So, no, I don't think I'll have an R35 GT-R again.  Loved it.  Miss it.  But it was like that crazy girlfriend who kept getting drunk at the bar and you had to go get her naked out of the pool - once behind my friend Dennis at 150+ mph at VIR I had to pick either eating his bumper or going agricultural due to brake fade.  It took me a long long time to get the dirt out from under the chassis and this adventure broke one of the nice carbon air guides for the brakes.  I miss her, but she made things too..."complicated".
