Edmunds Inside Line has tested an R35 GT-R with and without launch Control.
There's been a lot of speculation on the performance, but we have data loggers and test drivers and a closed test facility, we don't need to speculate. Last week we put our 2009 Nissan GT-R back on the starting line, this time without launch control. Follow the jump for the numbers.
0-60 (with 1 foot of rollout like on a dragstrip): 3.53
1/4 mile @ mph: 11.77 @ 118.63
0-60 (with 1 foot of rollout like on a dragstrip): 4.0
1/4 mile @ mph: 12.3 @ 118.5
Comments: "After trying every combination of suspension settings, shift protocol, automatic and manual shift, and traction control, I tried a completely default run (Normal: shift, suspension, trac) and it effectively tied my all-R / Manual shifted run. Big bog out of the hole, but then it goes like stink."
