New member, former 280Z turbo owner:
!)Has anyone posted a road test or acceleration times for that model equipped with a manual?
2)LSD--there is no LSD available on this model?
3) Floating caliper 2 pot brakes on front--did these carry over from the 370Z

Love the styling, but can't believe they would not put an LSD or 4 pot front calipers on all models given the amount of HP that on the car.

1) Yes. Pretty dissapointing 12.8 second 1/4 mile. And like a 5 second 0 - 60

2) As of now , no LSD for Sport - must pay the extra $10k for the Performance model

3) Can't recall offhand if the brakes are the same type as 370Z. I do know you get the upgraded Akenbos (i think) with the Performance

I'm wondering how many of you guys are going for the sport model?

I think down in Australia they're only getting the 8 inch screen. So is it possible to switch it out with the 9 inch screen?

Is anyone planning on getting a sport Z and putting in an aftermarket diff?

^ It would void the warranty, so if you have any sense you'd have to wait for that to expire.
It would only void a warranty claim, if the aftermarket LSD was proved to be the cause of the claim.

It would not void the car's warranty.

See: Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act

^ Depends on local laws - everywhere is going to be different. Plus some things would be difficult to prove one way or the other (for example, something closely connected to the altered pieces).

As well as potential warranty issues, there could also be problems in the case of a recall - you may have to pay for the recalled repair if you have "changed" the car.

Either way, best not to muck about with a new or used car until the warranty period ends, unless you've got plenty of money to pay for potential repairs yourself.

Put a Wavetrac diff in for around $3K installed. They are bulletproof and a dealer would never know it was changed since it fits in the stock diff casing. If any warranty work is needed, the diff would have nothing to do with it.

You are way off base, my friend.

The Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act is a FEDERAL LAW, not local.

Recalls are also FEDERALLY MANDATED and are not left up to dealer discretion for implementation.
