I could use a code for my buddy that has a Nismo 350Z. He wants to go badly. If you're not going to use your code or you need a partner please reach down in your heart and help a fellow Z enthusiast!

got one today and wanted to get more input on what is actually like? I"ve tracked a few cars and I've concerns based on forum input about being able to make more than 3 laps in my 2012 370 without it burning up something? Thoughts?

I got registered as a guest for the Austin event at COTA and thought I wasn't going to be able to drive my own Z. However, a participant in my group did not show, and they let me drive my Z on the track. There were a total of 12 laps in 4 sessions in your own car in the afternoon at full speed (there is some track time in the morning but it's slower and more designed for the instructors to gauge your skill level). I spent the first three laps getting my car inspected and ready for the track (no decals tho :(). I did the next three laps and reached about 260F oil temps as we were about to pit; I was cooled to around 210 before we started the next session. After 2-1/2 laps I hit ~285 oil temps - luckily we were just starting the last 1/2 lap cool down when I was contemplating radioing to the instructor that I needed to back off. I then let the car continue to cool down in pit lane while the fourth session was run (great photo op). However, immediately following that, I got to drive a stock 2013 370Z Nismo and a 2013 GT-R Track Edition :tup:

Note that I have a 2011 without an oil cooler, and I was fully aware this would limit any track time. While I was really, really hoping, I wasn't seriously expecting to get on the track with my own Z, so what I got was an amazing surprise. I installed EBC slotted front rotors and Hawk Performance Ceramic pads and flushed the stock brake fluid with ATE Super Blue less than a week before the event. I've run Mobil 1 5W-30 oil for most of the life of the car, and at the time of the event, the clutch fluid and power steering fluid were stock, and the transmission and diff fluids were Redline. I should mention that I had also recently tuned the car with EcuTek software (in May), and I was running Nitto Invo tires with a good amount of tread. The car had over 35K miles on it, and I was impressed at how well it performed overall. Even when it was pulling timing due to the heat, it was still driving hard and a hell of a lot of fun. Hopefully, you guys get some cooler weather in Oct in FL than we had in TX in June :icon17:

how did everyone get these codes? I know a few people going now.

MC 08-23-2013 12:07 AM

codes went out this morning and are gone

you got on the list a few different ways for signing up at some type of NISMO/Nissan event in the past or getting on their mailing Database or best of all being a NAGTROC member as I worked with nissan organizing the GTR attendees for the last 3 events

Footloose301 08-23-2013 05:43 AM

Can't wait! I was able to get a bunch of my local Z guys to go as well. Unfortunately we're all of different days so we can't play together but needless to say, they all owe me a beer :tup:

Now I just have to wait a month :(

6spd 08-23-2013 08:47 AM

I'm fully expecting to be c-blocked by my Z on the track due to temps. If it happens, I'm ready, if it doesn't, WOOHOO!
