Tokyo AutoSalon 2010: HKS Kansai Product Range for R35 GT-R

February 2nd, 2010

We’re not quite finished with the TAS2010 coverage just yet, we still have a load of photos to sort through for interesting tidbits from the show. Today we’ll cover the HKS Kansai booth who managed a huge showing again at this years AutoSalon. Most interesting this year was getting a chance to check out their lineup in the flesh. Let’s take a look then.

Up there is the HKS Kansai brake air guide system, bigger than I had expected it’s made from carbon and fits up with some nice stainless cap screws. The guide should provide some decent airflow and is probably best combined with some ducts from the front underspoiler. It’s no FIA GT ducting job but it should give you a bit of help on the track keeping the brakes cooler.

We also got a look at the HKS Kansai front mounter transmission cooler. As described a while back, this unit cools the transmission by cooling the engine coolant before it makes its way back to the transmission assembly. This is possibly one of the safest ways to cool your transmission and the quality of the HKS Kansai product is top notch. The ducting you can see is designed to take air from the front bumper to the cooler much the same way as the factor ducting does on the opposite side of the car.

Next up we checked out the HKS Kansai front and rear LSDs for the GT-R. The front LSD we had seen before in the HKS Kansai product release but the rear LSD is new to us. Again these are quality units and are made by a well known Japanese company for HKS Kansai. We’d tell you who but we’re told to keep it quiet for now. The same company makes the other items we saw actually, namely, the GT-R sway bars and adjustable control arms.

These are the first adjustable control arms we’ve seen for the GT-R so far and might be good for guys wants a bit more control over their camber at the front. We haven’t seen them fitted up yet or heard of real world results so we can’t give the specs just yet. They’re still in development for now but hopefully we see a full release soon.

For now you can read up on pricing and specs of product they have released over on the HKS Kansai website. For the new stuff, we’ll keep you posted when we know full details.
