I believe I recall the V2 wing had to be "redesigned" to meet a new Japanese standard for view out of the rear glass.

EDIT - I hate what the result was. I'm just glad I got the V2 wing.

I don&#39;t mind the front so much (would like to see it painted the same color as the car though). The rest... not so much.

What about those wheels? Those aren&#39;t going to be the "next" LMGT4s or anything, or are they?

I&#39;m pretty much sure they&#39;re trying to copy the looks and functionality of the Super GT car - much of it looks similar. However it&#39;s too much for me - it&#39;s asking to be pulled over (and possibly flamed)

I&#39;ll have to have a second look on the front bumper as it seems to droop down and forward more than V2. At least they integrated the venturi/anti-pitch sensitivity splitter.

I kinda like the wing, but that is it. If it didn&#39;t have that ugly middle support it would be better though. The rest of the kit doesn&#39;t flow with the overall lines of the car. But that is just my 2cents...

na those are slightly different versions of the grand touring wheels. instead of the 3 dot on the spokes they have the line.

this is the nissan factory version. the 380RS Z built at the nismo shops will probably have the LMgt&#39;s and graphics

kinda of the same thing they did with the Type-E and S-tune GT.

Damn, that&#39;s ugly.

I&#39;ve never liked long-nose Z&#39;s, and without the canards those front cheeks look like a big mass of nothing.

I don&#39;t like the "kick" in the middle of the front lip either.

The side skirts are a big case of meh.

Don&#39;t even get me started on the rear bar. As well as being ugly in itself, it makes the bends for the exhaust tips look terrible.

And that rear wing looks like its off a FPV FT-P.

And those rims look like stylised versions of the "lobster claw" rims.....and they don&#39;t look any better.

A massive thumbs down by yours truly.


The only compliment I can think of is that you can barely notice the wide bonnet bulge to clear the VQ35HR, which can only be a good thing.

Understeer is when you hit the tree with the front wheel.
Oversteer is when you hit it with the back.
Horsepower is how hard you hit the tree...
Torque is how far you drag it...

Damnit scathing, stop holding back. Let it out man, tell us how you really feel about that kit.
