From what I understand, this was a problem for early model GTR's, when they claimed a 3.0 sec 0-60 or some craziness. Now they reduced the time to mid 3's by reducing the tranny's grab on the launch, thereby increasing the longevity of the transmission. Also, I believe early GTR's had a voided warranty for using launch control for this very reason. It has since been rectified, I believe.
