Willall Racing Launch GT-R Rear LSD Upgrade Kits

December 16th, 2010

Willall Racing WR35DS

Here’s another good idea from Aussie workshop Willall Racing. Instead of ditching the entire rear LSD assembly for a fancy aftermarket job they’ve decided to beef the stock one up to the task. With the goal of making the OEM LSD good enough for circuit abuse they reckon they’ve achieved it with as little as their new WR35DS Rear LSD Super Lock Kit.

Given that the stock diff is a high quality, well machined 1.5 way item with solid steel assemblies to begin with – it made sense to at least have a look in this direction.

This series of hardened and heat treated differential shims is installed to adjust the pre-load on the factory diff to the owners liking. You can go from “mild” to “wild” depending on how many shims you use.

The end result is significantly more grip and an end to the inside wheel spinning during cornering. A good result for the price of just $395. Click the link below for more info…

Global GT-R Nismo ST1 Spec GT-R Debuts in Altech GT Challenge South Africa

November 25th, 2010

Global GTR South Africa

Back in September Nismo announced that they were adding an additional authorized NHPC outside of Japan that would be able to offer Nismo’s special edition GT-Rs. Global GT-R in South Africa was given this honor.

This includes not only the Nismo ClubSport Package but also makes them the first NHPC outside Japan to sell the Nismo RC ST1 race car which until now had only been seen during 2010 Japanese Super Taikyu series.

The first Nismo RC ST1 spec car in South Africa, the Global GT-R, made it’s racing debut in the Altech Challenge Series this month pit up against some serious GT cars at Kyalami Circuit. Racing in class A, they ended up in third place on the podium by the end of the day. Not a bad first day out.

Looks like the guys from Global GT-R have a full 2011 season ahead of them and hopefully they will continue to race and develop the Nismo RC ST1 car. It’s really great to see it on the track.

COBB Tuning Release AccessTUNER Race for Nissan GT-R

November 7th, 2010

COBB’s famous AccessTUNER Pro software for the Nissan GT-R COBB AccessPORT has traditionally only been available to approved AccessTUNER workshops. This is fine for the majority of end users but for race teams or for experienced tuners, returning back to base for a touch up has been restrictive.

AccessTUNER Race end-user tuning software comes to the rescue here offering the ability to do everything from modifying existing maps to touch them up to building completely new maps from the ground up for a major retune.

AccessTUNER provides control of vital engine parameters to the user, such as; intake cam advance, wastegate duty cycle, fuel injector scalar, boost control tables, knock sensitivity, rev limiters, speed limiters and many more. Customizable data monitors let the user choose which channels are monitored to see how changes impact the behavior of the engine. The built-in data logging capability captures data from up to 30 channels across the entire rev-range, allowing detailed data analysis after a dynamometer test. 3-D graphical mapping gives the user a comprehensive view of engine behavior across three axis to evaluate where performance can be maximized. An integral dashboard shows the user-chosen gauges to be displayed during the tuning process.

It seems pretty full featured, in fact it looks almost exactly like the Pro version except that it is locked to a single AccessPORT. So no tuning your friends GT-Rs with the Race version unfortunately.

Still it’s great value all the same, on top of the already giant bang for your buck AccessPORT. It sells for $695.

K&N Air Filters for the Nissan GT-R – High Flow, High Efficiency Air Filters

October 10th, 2010

Whether your GT-R is an every day street car or a highly tuned beast you are more than likely still using the factory airboxes, they’re just that good. You can choose to roll with those paper OEM filters but you may find that while they filter great they don’t flow the same as a good K&N air filter set would.

The K&N Air Filters are a high flow, oiled filter element made from many interwoven layers of surgical cotton gauze. They’re designed to last the life of the car and only require washing maintenance every 50,000 miles.

They drop right in with no modifications needed and retail around the $103.68 mark including free shipping! Head on over to the link below for more info…
