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.

https://www.carmax.com/car/15096368?...&gcid=16394399

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

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
