Nissan just dropped a new video about the development process of the 2012 Nissan GT-Rand how Cheif Project Officer Kazutoshi Mizuno strived to “fulfill” the promise that they made to enthusiasts to make the current gen GT-R just as beastly and awesome as its predecessors.  It’s actually a pretty compelling video even though its only about 5 minutes long.  Scroll down and check it out for yourself.

COBB Tuning Nissan GT-R Adjustable End Links

Posted on 08.05.10 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

If you’re looking to tighten up your Nissan GT-R’s handling beyond factory levels then you should probably pay a visit to COBB Tuning.  They just released these new adjustable end links to help sharpen steering response for various conditions and situations.  The best part is they will bolt right up to the OEM sway bar with no modifications needed.  The only catch is that COBB did a super limited run of the endlinks and once they’re sold out they will not re-stock.  So get them while you can!

Greddy R35 GT-R DCT Cooler

Posted on 05.18.10 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

When the new Nissan R35 GT-R was released its transmission became a topic of controversy as some speculated it wasn’t up to the task of all the horsepower Nissan blessed it with.  Since then Nissan has addressed the problem but if you want a little more insurance Greddy announced on their blog that they’ve just released a DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) cooler for Godzilla.  The set up even comes with a special duct to send air to the cooler’s 13-row core.  This is good news for GT-R owners out there who like to drive a little harder than the user manual suggests.

Yes, I know I just dropped a hype video on you guys a second ago but I found this shorly after and it is equally worthy of a post!  This is a “commercial” (I say its more like a short film) featuring SP Engineering’s SPE750 turbo upgrade kit for the R35 Nissan GT-R.  For a shop that sells/installs parts all day they’re pretty good film makers!  Check it out below.

Passworld:JDM Dry Carbon Fiber Rear Seat Deletes For Nissan R35 GT-R

Posted on 02.09.10 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

Let’s face it as great as the Nissan R35 GT-R is, its backseats are pretty much useless unless you are younger than 10.  Despite this fact they are inundated with leather and plushy stuff under said leather.  Nice to look at but utterly useless!  What’s the solution? Rip them out and replace them with these FRESH carbon fiber seat deletes by Password:JDM.  These deletes were carefully shaped to perfectly fit the contours of the rear seats and are made from 100% dry carbon fiber.  I wonder if there is a way to transform these things into bar stools?

Love or Hate?: Voltex Type V GT Wing On GT-R

Posted on 01.26.10 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

So far this is the first time I’ve seen a GT style wing on the current R35 Nissan GT-R.  I can’t quite tell if I like it yet.  Usually when it comes to GT wings there is no grey area you either love it or hate it but I find myself undecided.  This is an example of a Voltex Type V GT wing on a GT-R shown off by Evasive Motorsports.  What do you guys think?  Love or hate?  Comment here or RT on twitter @MotorworldHype.
