Oh I don't doubt it, it annoys me a lot, but for now I like it.

The Nismo has 2 fins in between the Exhaust tips and then 2 more outside the tips (1 on each side). This diffuser has all 4 in the middle, and they are WAAAY bigger than the Nismo ones, they're literally like 5" long.

Feel like it added a whole lot of character to the rear. Now I need a duckbill...

What size tyre you running on the rear there? Looks pretty thick, like you could get away with a lower profile to reduce the rake. - Smaller diameter + the ability to bring the fender closer to the wheel lip (gain a half inch at the bottom, and another half at the top)

I could understand going this low on a slow car but for a car like the G35........ you miss out on the performance of this car. When I first got my G I always wanted to go lower and space out my fronts for that super flush "how do you drive like that, don't your wheels rub, how do you turn" look. Glad I didn't have the time or disposable funds to do that because I would miss out on the sports side of this car. Personally I think a track style stance looks best - and of course very functional too.

fat tires are always the best
I was always jealous of how wide the 370 guys could go

It's a 255/40/19, I really need a 235/40. My buddy works for Honda dealership and gets the 235's for free so he is going to hook me up whenever more roll into the shop. For now, the $100 I spent on the 255's are fine by me. With the smaller tires I should be able to run -6 degrees in the rear or less, instead of the massive -8.5 I'm at now. But I'm happy either way.
