Transcript of "2010 GT-R OWNER'S MANUAL"

  1. 1. March 2009 U.S.A
  2. 2. Black plate (2,1)The NISSAN GT-R, introducing youto a new genre of supercarsThe legend of the GT-R began in May of 1964 in Japan when the affectionately termed “boxy” Skyline passed a Porsche 904 at a hairpin curve on theSuzuka Circuit.The GT-R legend continued on the Japanese racing circuits and in the sports car world when the GT-R was equipped with a powerful engine and state-of-the-art all-wheel drive system in August of 1989.A new legend is in the making for the 21st century. The “NISSAN GT-R” is now available worldwide.During development, the NISSAN GT-R was taken to the Nurburgring in Germany, a racetrack used for performance evaluation benchmarking ofsupercars. While being driven by a professional driver, the GT-R set a record time of 7 minutes 38 seconds even though the road surface of the mostdifficult high-speed corner, the “kesselchen” was wet. The GT-R also handled an endurance test totaling approximately 3,000 miles (5,000 km), settingthe world’s fastest continuous driving lap time of 7 minutes 55 seconds. Additionally, to make sure the GT-R performs off the track as well as it does on thetrack, the vehicle was designed to perform on many types of roads from a scorching freeway to snow swept country roads.A new legend is born.

The & position second gear can be used to start moving the vehicle only M when reduced torque is necessary on snowy roads or extremely slippery surfaces. . When the vehicle is stopped on a hill, do not hold the vehicle in place by depressing the accelerator pedal. Doing so may cause the clutch to overheat and result in transmission damage. Use the brakes to prevent the vehicle from moving. The following conditions are caused due to changes in fluid viscosity as a result of temperature changes. . When the transmission fluid is extremely cold or extremely hot, the transmission may feel like it is slipping during shifts or there may be hardElectronic oil pressure shifts. This is normal. Transmission shifting should return to normal when the transmission fluid returns to normal operating temperatures.control .

Move the shift lever after turning off the system check display. Also, it is normal to hear clicking P noises during the transmission systems check. . The higher shift speeds in the & position may result in shift shock and jerkiness when starting or shifting. MChanging modes . Quick shifting in the R mode with the transmission in the & position is available when the engine speed is high. However, the transmission M may shift more slowly when the engine speed is low. Appropriate gaps are provided between gears to achieve smooth gear rotation and steady tooth surface lubrication under the high-load drivingGear clearances condition.

An ultralight flywheel is provided to achieve rapid engine response to the accelerator pedal operation and quick shifting response to the paddle shifter operation. These are essential for a supercar. However, you may notice a large rattling noise from gears because engine rotation fluctuations become larger while idling.Ultralight flywheel . Due to changes in engine speed through the operation of the air conditioner, rattling, shaking or jarring noises may be heard when idling or driving at low speeds. . Rattling noises may be heard when the engine is started or stopped.
