SpeedForSale Opening Unveils Dodson GR6 Straight Cut and Custom Ratio Sets

November 18th, 2010

Dodson Straight Cut Gears for GTR

SpeedForSale hosted a grand opening for their new facility in the Atlanta, GA area last weekend and managed some impressive attendance from customers and fans. With a parking lot full of GT-R, Supra, Viper, Corvette, and many more niche sports cars, everyone had the opportunity to chat with their old friends and make some new ones, while also checking out the new shop, equipment, and projects going on at SpeedForSale.

Glenn from Dodson Motorsport was in attendance at the event, and he had some of their upcoming new products on hand to display. The most exciting of these new parts, which have been in demand for quite some time now, are the new custom gear ratio sets available in both standard helical cut and the new heavy duty STRAIGHT cut option. Standard gear ratios are also available in the Straight Cut flavor.

These parts are currently being tested on Dodson’s Tarmac Rally car to ensure quality and reliability prior to being released and will be ready to ship in 2-4 weeks.

SpeedForSale is one of only a select few Dodson Certified Pro Dealers and installers in the world. These new Dodson GR6 items are now available for pre-order on their webstore. Click here to pre-order.

December 3rd, 2009

img_200205

If you’ve ever had to splice into an ECU wiring harness to hook up some gadget or other you’ll know how heartbreaking it is to cut open the nice loom and hack it all to pieces. It’s pretty worrying for those that still hang on to some semblance of a warranty too because if Nissan happen to catch your handy work you might have some ‘splainin to do.

Wiring harness patches offer the perfect solution to this problem, they offer a passthrough matched set of plugs and sockets with a short length of wiring in between for all your patching adventures. Remove the harness extension and you’re back to stock!

This latest version, just released, now features coverage for all three sockets on the GT-Rs ECU giving you access to any signal that might pass it’s way.

Hit up the link below to order yours…

Alcon SuperKit Brake Upgrades for Nissan GT-R in US from SpeedForSale

July 28th, 2009

alcon-gtr-100

Well we saw these first about a month ago, huge brake upgrades from UK based Alcon had made their way to a few early customers in Asia. The brakes are now officially available to all in Europe and the US.

July 27, 2009 – Alcon Components LTD, a world-wide leader in high performance braking systems and technology, has confirmed that SpeedForSale.com will be the exclusive North American distributor of their Nissan GT-R Brake SuperKits & OEM Lightweight Rotor Upgrades.

The official press release then goes on to give a few of the details of these mammoth brake kits, the largest currently available for the GT-R.

The GT-R SuperKit has the largest brake caliper, rotor, and pad upgrade available for the GT-R, with the front rotors having a massive 15.75” x 1.42” (400mm x 36mm) size, and the rear rotors coming in at 15.16” x 1.30” (385mm x 33mm.) The kit’s 2-piece floating rotors also include Alcon’s unique bobbin drive system and crescent groove pattern on the face along with 48 internal vanes with turbulators. The mammoth sized ‘Mono-block’ calipers are machined from solid billet and contain 6-pistons in both the front AND rear, along with dust seals, anti-rattle clips, ventilated piston inserts in the front, and utilization of the OEM parking brake in the rear. The brake pads included are Pagid RS9-2 models, with anti-squeal shims and a surface area of 33.6” square inches (217 square centimeters) in the front and 18.7” (121 sq cm) in the rear. High quality Goodridge stainless steel braided brake lines complete the kit. And, best of all, these huge brakes fit inside the OEM 20” wheels and work with the stock brake actuation system!

Pretty much brake porn right there… Pricing on the full SuperKit is $12,990 including everything you need and a choice between Castrol and Motrul brake fluid.

If you’re looking at upgrading brakes but are quite content with the standard Brembo calipers, Alcon are now also producing a lightweight OEM replacement rotor kit. A full set of four, including hats, pre-assembled, ready to fit up will set you back only $3,500 or just $3,000 if you’re one of the first four to order at the link below

T1R Exhaust Pricing, Release Date and Comparisons for Nissan GT-R

March 10th, 2009

The Type1 Racing exhaust for the Nissan GT-R is due in less than a months time now and what should be final pricing is up online already. We also have a new dyno chart we hadn’t seen before comparing each T1R Exhaust stage from the turbos back.

The T1R 90R Cat back exhaust in stainless will set you back $1,890 USD. It’s manufactured in SUS316 grade stainless and offers a 90mm main pipe split into two 70mm rear pipe sections. It will go on sale in April and should be available for pre-order now.

The T1R Y-Pipe also goes on sale in April this year. It’s made from the same SUS316 grade stainless steel and features a pair of 76.3mm pipes combined into a single 90mm diameter pipe. Two flex joins insure it will not suffer cracking under stress at high temperatures. The price? Just $619 USD.

We’ll have a video of these come April when SpeedForSale get their hands on one installed on their own GT-R.

Thanks Jeremy@SpeedForSale for the update.
