GT-R Customised Street Event with Option Magazine

August 1, 2008 Comments off

Suzuka Circuit (Mobility Land) in cooperation with Option magazine are holding the R35 GT-R Customised Street event at Suzuka Circuit over August 23rd and August 24th. This co-incides with round 6 of the 2008 SuperGT series, the 37th annual POKKA 1000km race at Suzuka so the turnout will be huge.

R35 GT-Rs from every top Japanese tuner will be out on display at Grand Prix Square just outside the circuit. There will also be a demo lap on the track.

Tuners featured will be, Zele International, Autech Tsukada, Garage Yawata, Garage Defend, Esprit, HKS Kansai, Original Runduce, Sunline Racing, Concept, Blitz, Garage Sauras, Midori Seibei Center, Garage Active and MCR! One word for this, woah. It’s probably the biggest GT-R event since TAS in January with more GT-Rs.

ATTKD Suspension and Tuning

May 20, 2008 Comments off

Autech Tsukada (ATTKD) have been in the GT-R tuning business for a long time now and they have recently begun their foray into development of parts for circuit R35 GT-Rs. One of the first items on the agenda was the R35’s suspension. Like many tuning houses in Japan, ATTKD was not immediately pleased with the standard suspension and opted to replace it with their own specification of what is now known as Endless Zeal suspension.

Utilising the Function-A aluminium construction dampers saves weight and gains full damper and height adjustability. ATTKD chose to pair the Function-A dampers with some Endless X-Coils springs. Front spring rates are 12kg/mm and rear are 8kg/mm with a 1.5kg/mm helper spring.

Already this suspension has made it’s racing debut in the Australian Targa Tasmania in April 2008 having been installed in the Donut King R35 GT-R that we’ve seen many times on here before. The suspension is still undergoing development in both Japan and Australia.

ATTKD have also been working on some brake pad upgrades – ATTKD original Fuji brake pads for circuit use.
