I was looking at photos of the new Subaru BRZ and I noticed that in the instrument cluster that it has a G force meter.

It got me wondering if the Z is going to have one as well. From the photos of Z Proto it doesn't show one. Maybe it'll be something that we can customize in the screen.

would be cool if you could add customizable widgets to the screen like the G force. my brothers 2018 Mustang GT has a very similar G force monitor as the subaru pic as his car also has an all digital dash.

what we have seen from the proto is just like a demo mode and not the real day to day screen. so hopefully there will be more add ons you can scroll through


they probably wont use the one in my GTR as it has separate pages of screens for acceleration lateral and braking instead off the all in one. it needs to be more like the subaru or mustang one where it looks like the all in one target.

this is from a launch control a few years ago for example.

The GT-R's display is too analog per today's standards it seems. Those customizable displays on the same view plane are useful and easily programmed. Plus the new Z being twin boosted I'd want all kinds of temp gauges and AFR, and then laptime monitoring i.e. data logger. Hope for all these guys, but I'm sure would be in an options package. .

Datalogger would be amazing.
I love the idea of a g-meter, but honestly it needs to record the data. If you're pulling any serious gs you really shouldn't be looking at your dash at all.

Seriously, Nissan should include a data logger and telemetry stuff, lots of performance cars today like my track buddies’ ZL1 and Stang GT came with one, not to mention the GT-R.

Yeah if the information can't be recorded then it doesn't really matter.

The data recorder from NISMO in my GTR is one of the lamest halfbaked ideas ive ever seen. it only works on certain tracks and only a few are even in the US.

  • Ascari Race Resort
  • Autodromo Nazionale di Monza
  • Brands Hatch Circuit GP
  • Circuit de la Sarthe
  • Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps
  • Daytona International Speedway
  • Fuji Speedway
  • Indianapolis Motor Speedway
  • Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca
  • Mount Panorama
  • Nürburgring Nordschleife
  • Red Bull Ring
  • Silverstone
  • Suzuka Circuit
  • Tsukuba Circuit
  • Twin Ring Motegi
  • Willow Springs International Motorsports Park

Why on earth would they make it so limiting? That doesn't make sense at all.

Not many GT-R owners will take their cars to the racetrack, and because they didn't want to program any more racetracks into this gimmick program. Speaking as a racer, I hope Nissan leaves this feature out of the Z35.

Of those I can use MRLS and WSIR since local enough, but agree, if most of the delivered track maps are useless here in the States then not much use. I'll be OK with some kind of stored G readings and manual lap timing, although I use my own transponder anyway.
