Stillen Release AP Racing Rotor Upgrades for GT-R

January 14th, 2009

Cost effective brake upgrades don’t come around every day on the Nissan GT-R. When you have 380mm rotors standard clamped by massive Brembo calipers it has to be something pretty great to be considered an upgrade. Stillen have been working with AP Racing on putting together something that does just that though.

These AP Racing rotors feature an improved, track oriented design which is more suited to extreme temperature conditions without the cracking commonly being seen on the standard drilled rotor. The curved vein design manages heat better under stress as well.

Priced at $1,169.75 USD per pair this makes for a cheaper option than paying RRP for a set of OEM Brembo rotors if yours are worn or cracked. Your standard hats are re-used but new attaching hardware is supplied for that price.

    I got a pair of these and they do increase my braking capacity overall by quite a bit.

    The greatest benefit of using a curved or directional vein design in a brake rotor comes from the face that heat is more evenly distributed through air pressurization and control.

    First of all I want to say excellent blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.

    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thank you!
