Bc that's what Infiniti calls it:

2016: 'RED SPORT 3.0t 400' abbreviated to RS400 (omitting 3.0t)

2018: 'RED SPORT 400' abbreviated to RS400 (3.0t already omitted)

It might be unnecessary but you could say that a 400 hp luxury/sports sedan is unnecessary-- but not to RS400 owners

Most/some people think it's a "regular" Q50, but many of them on the street get "educated"

Same thing would occasionally happen with my Golf R. Confused for GTI by some. That R's awd dsg turbo flies.

Not so much with the 5.0L ISF bc it looks & sounds very different from the "regular" models.

I wonder why Infiniti designated a red "S" on rear deck lid and fender instead of "Q50 RS" & "RS 3.0T".
"Q50S" can be mistaken for 3.7 L Sport models from rear to casual observers.
Red "S" is Red Sport 400 hp
Silver "S" Regular Sport, 300hp
Blue "S" is hybrid
Just saw this "S color" designations on a car review video ^^. Still learning about the Q.

I suppose, and I figured it was something like that. Then again, if the point is to abbreviate something needlessly long and redundant, I circle back around to Q50RS literally tells you exactly what car it is with or without the 400. It would make more sense if there were RS350's or RS300's, but there aren't. If you're going to add three unnecessary characters to it, AWD or RWD offers 100% more distinction than 400 does. I'm really quivling over trivialities though, and feel like I'm just trolling at this point. The question has certainly been answered, thanks.

Welcome to the forum.
Just a suggestion..go to "user CP" there you can update your location. It helps forum members make informed decisions about your car or questions you ask. Also you can add a signature, nice to put your car info in there too.

Picked up a set of 20x10.5 GTR 10-spokes last week. They are definitely aggressive for this car. I am looking into getting a few mm taken out of the offset to pull the wheels in more.

Nah just slam that thing down they’ll tuck nize! Seriously though you may be better off running some additional negative camber rather than trying to go the machine route. How much clearance do you see on the front calipers?

I have clearance for days on the calipers. I really want to be able to run 285s and get some more meat. If I can take 10mm off then I can fit them I think. We will see. I can't run much camber with AWD and I daily 160 miles a day
