no contest the GT-R is a great car, that's for sure. Just seems odd given the intended use of the GT-R that it requires modification to something as major as the transmission or it will "fail". This is not a consumable item, but a major warranty covered component of the car that would be "at risk".
While a BBK is nice to have on a M3, you can certainly slap on some race pads, fluid, and SS lines and still last on the track for multiple sessions without worry.
