OS Giken Extend Range of Rear LSD Upgrades for the Nissan GT-R

February 12th, 2010

Some time back Sunline Racing worked together with well known Japanese manufacturer of all things clutch and LSD related, OS Giken, to come up with an improved rear LSD for the R35 GT-R. The result of this partnership was the OS Giken OS-TCD LSD. This flagship product is a easy to live with but high performance LSD in the OS Super Lock LSD range. It features unique oil control systems to ensure that all of the friction plates are kept lubricated all of the time. The result is a smooth performing LSD with extreme high performance capabilities which led Sunline Racing to shave seconds off their laptimes at the track.

The OS-TCD may be the ducks guts rear LSD but it comes at a price of 300,000 yen in Japan before tax.

OS Giken have now developed a less intense but still better-than-standard performing upgrade rear LSD for the GT-R known as the OS-NEO. The NEO is designed for daily driver GT-Rs who see some performance street driving and track days and are looking for a bit more predictable traction from the rear out of the turns without the interference of VDC. The NEO will set you back just 191,000 yen in Japan before tax.

OS Giken are also pegged to release a front LSD upgrade for the GT-R in coming months. This will compete with existing offerings from HKS Kansai.

Sunline Racing Dry Carbon Roof for Nissan GT-R

December 17th, 2009

slr-roof-001

Sunline Racing have released their dry carbon roof for the Nissan GT-R. This roof is said to be designed for high strength while it’s 0.8mm thickness lends itself to being extremely lightweight.

It comes with a UV protection coating to ensure it keeps looking good for a long time to come and sells for 241,500 yen in Japan.

I’m surprised that not too many companies have done carbon roofs for the GT-R so far. There’s something good about that unpainted carbon look on the roof that I love…

Sunline Racing and OS Giken Rear LSD Upgrade

March 16th, 2009

Nissan GT-R Rear LSD by Sunline Racing and OS Giken

After considerable effort, Sunline Racing in partnership with OS Giken have created an upgraded LSD for the Nissan R35 GT-R. The upgraded rear LSD offers a considerable bump in rear end stability at the track.

To prove it Sunline Racing have been out at Okayama International Circuit with GT300 race driver Yasushi Kikuchi to see what it can do. During testing, Kikuchi-san managed to knock almost 2 full seconds off their previous best laptime of 1:42:00 to lap the 3.7km track in just 1:40:20.

The Sunline Racing OS Giken rear LSD is on sale now at the retail price of 320,000 yen.

Thanks to Ben @ GTR23.com for the heads up.
