Wednesday, November 25th, 2015

Nissan 4 Altima race cars in top 10

At the WD-40 SuperSprint event in Philip Island, Australia, this past weekend, three Nissan Altima models finished in the top 10 finalists. Nissan driver, Todd Kelly finished in fifth place, Rick finished in sixth place and James Moffat came in eighth place. The fourth Nissan race car, #23 and its driver, Michael Caruso spent a big part of the race in the top five, but clutch issues midway through the race caused the wheels to spin during a tire change. This mechanical issue held Caruso back, and the #23 Altima crossed the checkered flag in 22nd place. In a post-race interview, Michael Caruso, said: “The car is obviously very quick but unfortunately suffered a clutch problem which ultimately ended the great result we were heading towards. Everyone is disappointed, but hopefully they can find out what exactly the problem was and we can rectify it for Sydney in a couple of weeks.”

Wednesday, November 18th, 2015

Nissan 4 ALtima 2016 no match

The 2016 Nissan Altima competes in one of the automotive industry’s toughest markets – the full-size sedan segment is overcrowded with options and the Nissan Altima’s midcycle refresh features more than just a few cool upgrades. Cosmetically, the new model has changed tremendously; its front and rear fascias now features an entirely new look – one that is appreciated highly. In addition to the new front and back ends, the Altima now shares a few of the same styling cues as the Murano and the new Maxima models: the new headlights, taillights and subtle changes to hood, fenders and trunk. Nissan reported that the vehicle will carry an EPA ratings of 39 MPG on the highway and 27 MPG in the city = 31 MPG combined.

Nissan 3 PS4 Controller SUV

Nissan, Konami and Sony recently joined forces to convert one of Nissan’s most popular SUV models into a PS4 controller. This is all the latest trend in the gaming world – turning random objects, or nontraditional items into game controllers. The Nissan Qashqai crossover was designed to play Pro Evolution Soccer 2016. “Players pass the ball with the brake pedal and shoot on goal with the gas pedal, controlling the direction of players with the steering wheel. The windshield washer lever handles cross passes, the phone button makes players sprint, and the turn signal is used to navigate up and down.” Examples of a few nontraditional controllers that have used to play popular video games include: feet, bongos, a guitar hero controller, keyboard and mouse, etc.

At the first test of the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3, Simmons said: “When I go to any test, race day or tuition, it is still pretty surreal to wake up and think that’s what I get to do. It’s weird to adjust and say this is my life. You’ve got to make the most out of the tuition days and learn from these guys. It’s not every day that they can sit in your passenger seat and see directly what you are doing, and the feedback you get I amazing.”
