    If this is on early Z's AND it is to deal with the crank vibration then Nissan would have known about it long before Brock got his racer.

    Alan. I concur. I should have clarified more: I was responding to why the US market did not get a 5 speed in the standard offering (bad pun) for so long. 1. I was referring to why the 4sp stuck for so long in the US market at the start. My guess is what is stated above... it cost Nissan less (assumed) and it sold like hot cakes from the start so why change it? 2. I was referring to why the 5sp was second fiddle to the automatic transmission in the US market only. Clearly other markets would have had the 5sp as a focus.

    Interesting inputs... it looks like providing initial lowest cost may have been one of the prime reason for the 4speed, and instant profits from the "selling like hot cakes" so why change a thing kept the 4 speed in place. For early product enhancement, the transmission focus was more on providing an automatic so the 5speed would have been a "second fiddle".
