Although, it seems odd that Nissan wouldn't offer a 6MT on the NISMO
It's all about that 0 - 60 marketing. They need to be able to say their top of the line sports car can do 0 - 60 in ___ seconds and they probably don't want an asterisk beside that number.

Nissan has been very generous with this platform/drivetrain. They could have acted like Toyota and locked everything down. Nope, these cars are every bit as modifiable as any of the German turbo cars are.

More impressive is that those guys are stuck with the 7AT, and they are still getting good performance with the 7AT. When they get the 9AT and the new Z gets both the 6MT and 9AT the VR is really going to shine.
Have they confirmed the 9AT?

Yeah I'm not holding my breath for the 9speed I highly doubt they use it. I'm betting if the do end up using the 9speed it will be in an update version of the new Z. They will milk this platform for all it's worth just like they did previous Z platforms so anything they can hold off putting in a v2 they will.

Nissan put the 9AT into the Frontier that's been around since MY 2005, and they put it in the Titan as a mid-life refresh.

Oh yeah, the new Z is getting the 9AT, bet! The Q60 will get it also.

Sorry if this is a repeat.

Something that many of us already knew. Some validation. Aftermarket will be happy because a lot of product for the z34 can be used on the z35.

If the MT is the same, I wonder if they'll redesign a CSC that can be interchangeable with our 370z?

Don't hold your breath! Since I plan on getting a 6MT, and I keep hearing about this "CSC" issue, I better do my research!

Is the "CSC" a clutch slave cylinder? I have some foggy understanding that on these cars it is a PITA to replace? Anyways, don't mean to derail, I need to go search the forums on it.

Maybe if the 6MT requires a revised bellhousing Nissan may do us a solid and revise the CSC? We can "hope". We'll see, Nissan is pretty "hit or miss" on their quality of parts, you'd think with a platform as mature as the FM Z platform they could focus a little more on correcting their few past mistakes!

Yes. The OEM slave cylinder is inside the bell housing and made with plastic parts. Have to drop the transmission to replace it. Just get one of the ZSpeed options and be done with the matter.

You can prolong the life of your CSC to probably last as long as your clutch (assuming you started doing this when the car was new) by changing the clutch fluid with RBF600, and religiously keep doing so with a fresh bottle every year (or twice a year if you drive it year round as a daily driver).

This way, you don't have to drop the transmission until it's clutch replacement time, and when you do you change out the OEM CSC with the HD CSC (or if Nissan produces a metal Z35 CSC that's backwards compatible with the Z34).

So, is Nissan going to begin a tour through the States with this car? I definitely want to see it in person if it comes to my area.
