Pics on your PC might look pink but it's a dark red shade in person, all the current Nismos have it IIRC.

I just want to say I'm an idiot. I thought OP = Laura. So thought they went and got that custom pink trim, which I thought was impressively dedicated. I live in SoCal and have seen girls do up their cars like that. But ends up I'm just color blind lmao.

I've recently finished tuning with Sebastian. As with the G before Laura, a tune changes everything for the better!!! So much more fun now! I'll have to shoot some footage of the 2-step launch control.

Awesome. Sebastian is really good at what he does. I need to make another appt to go out there and have him retune my car. But I want to be really sure I'm done with modding so I don't waste more money tuning. Thinking of switching my K&N short ram to a long tube CAI.

As a 7AT I'm super jealous of the 2 step.

It's been a while! I've not done too much, but have added a few quality of life updates.

P2M Carbon Fiber Dampers

not sure why a Nismo would't have these by default...

I've also done an E-Tune with Sebastian at EcuTek. No idea of the numbers, but being able to redline the first three gears helps and throttle response seems to have improved quite a bit. She now feels as fast as she looks, but Nissan should have done this from the factory. 2-step is fun, but useless on an N/A car. Flat-foot shifting is also fun, but again, kinda useless on an N/A car that's not building boost. The pops and gurgles when up/down shifting brings smiles!! The power feels less starved in the lower gears, and she really comes alive above 4-5k RPM's! With that being said, I've not really pushed the car to the limits, as she's my daily and I do very little highway driving. I'm hoping to correct that at some point. Until then, I'll keep making minor improvements.

Other mentionables:
Raceseng Tug Plate license holder - now not necessary that OH has recently changed laws with requiring a front plate
HR 25mm x4 spacers - the stock wheels were just too recessed for me. The fitment is now a very slight poke. No rubbing at all.
Diode Dynamics Internal LED's - these are awesome!

At some point, I will go the SC route, but other life responsibilities take priority over play.

In the context of your interior colors and trim pieces, that looks absolutely fantastic with the glossy red cap on top of the matte black ****. Well done, Roger.

How's it feel?

Also, I've moved this to the Build Forum. I know it's not a G, but whatever... you're a long time member, and we're all Nissan Heads anyway.
