Car was picked up this morning at 5:30 am and is heading off to ACG in San Diego to get Alpha 9+ Turbos and a built bottom end consisting of JE pistons, Carillo rods and ARP head studs.
I am flying out the 6th to pick it up and run it on race gas at sea level for a few days. Take a trip up to HRE on friday, Cruise 4 Kids with ACG on Saturday, LA to see a lady friend on Sunday and still on the fence to drive it back or fly and have it shipped again Sunday night.
I'm really excited to see how the car performs when I get some seat time compared to some of the other exotics and projects ACG has been rolling out lately.

Still 100% no hitches or reliability problems? I'm eyeing on these 2012s for an eventual price drop since R36 is in the works. Liking what I see!

R35 GTRs are beasts. Reliable enough for DDs and can really handle the extra ponies.

The girl and I almost walked out with a 2013 this past Sunday. We haggled, and I got me a decent deal, so I was sold, and then the paperwork began. I was bragging about the track days that were to come. The dealership manager then stated to me "have you seen the waiver that you must sign before purchase?" To which I replied 'no, what waiver?' He then gave me the waiver that Nissan makes you sign for purchase - I was blown away.
Summarizing: If you take it to the track, drag-strip, airport run, or auto-cross the warranty is voided.
Bad part for me, I was telling them that's what I wanted it for. I can not believe Nissan made a multi-purpose super-car (IMO) with such a waiver.
It's good to hear your story of success with the GT-R, but that waiver has me on the fence. Nevertheless, your car is awesome, and I've been watching it since first post.
I even have Forged Performance to work on my GT-R exclusively. I hope Forged will be able to stand behind me for warranty work at the dealerships if I get one."Like all rotten bastards, when they become old, they get lonely.

Hmm, I've never heard that they make you sign a waiver. You sure they weren't bullshitting you? I didn't have to sign anything.

I guess it really comes down to your dealership and how "understanding" they will be. That's why I'm very grateful I have Boulder Nissan to maintain my car.
If you ask "will this void my warranty?" legally they will tell me yes, but that doesn't mean they will not go to bat for me and do what they can if/when something does go south.
I've put 6350 miles on this car, all of them have been driven with some sort of modification to the car and it's been rock solid.
You couldn't go wrong with Forged in your backyard either. Great guys with some fast track cars and definitely know their way around this platform.
I say do it brother.

I'm gonna have to get a 2014 if I do, because the color I want isn't available in the US anywhere.
I am glad to hear your success as well as others with the car. One of the managers where I went called today, and offered me to come out to drive his 2012 GT-R. Of course I accepted, and will try to make him pee his pants next week. He also made me a copy of the waiver - I told him I wanted my lawyer to review it."Like all rotten bastards, when they become old, they get lonely.
