And the huge *** monthly payment? 470.00 anyone?
ONLY $470??? My moms SSEi is like $630 a month, and the GTP is like $510. How the hell is yours only $470? Longer loan period or something?

I get tons of torque steer, especially with the new 3.4 pulley. Have to add an LSD to my list of mods
The LSD definately helps a lot. The SSEi gets crazy torque steer, and the GTP with 100ft.lbs more torque has less torque steer thanks to the LSD.

Might be a bigger downpayment, why do you know what the payments are, and why are you posting them..

I've always enjoyed the handling of this car, for a FWD car with such weight and power, I've only had torque steer once or twice, on a VERY twisty road out in mankato, that Allmachtige knows about... I've heard horror storries about the maxima'* and altimas torque steer.

1) We purchased both used
2) Lower interests rate

I love the RWD with the LSD on my Conquest. Add the turbo and even with the lsd I can light them up. It can be a little hairy in wet conditions if your not careful too. I've slid the rear-end out a couple of times trying to pull into traffic. I like having fwd for for rain/snow/ice.
