Hi
 
Got my first G37. I've wanted one since I rode in my friend's car a couple of years ago. Got it from CarMax. Not the cheapest place but you know what you're getting. Can't believe this car is a 2013 with 16,000 miles. I drive a lot so that will change.

This was the car.

Drove it last night and this thing is a beast. Very surprising for a 3,500-lb car.

I have a different car I drive for fun on the weekend but thought it'd be good to join the group to learn about little tweaks, etc. you can do. I'm mechanically inclined but I also need this car to get to work.

Take care,

Darian

Looks like a clean sedan you found Darian, welcome to the site. Look forward to what tweaks are in store.

Thanks. Keeping it stock until I get used to it. Was surprised at how well the suspension performed on a highway overpass - no roll. Took the traction control off, hit the gas, and turned onto a road from a parking lot and it slid out much more than I expected. Oh well, no one was around. LOL

Do you still have a limited slip differential with the traction control off? I've only had clutch LSD before and that has no electronic component, of course.

Thanks

Welcome to the forum Darian.

If you have an S model you have a limited slip, non-S models have an open diff.

The photo in the CarMax is for a base Journey. It won't have LSD or big brakes. But that's okay, we'll help you make it better if you wish.

Thanks. I imagine it's just a matter of swapping out the differential, no?

Like this one?

Looks like other cars interchange as well. $300, not bad
