HKS Kansai Tackle the Brake Cooling Issue

June 29, 2009 Comments off


Some of you who’ve spent some time getting to know the GT-R at your local race tracks may have noticed that the brakes tend to get hot. It’s not rocket science really, a big heavy car like the GT-R expects a lot from it’s brakes even if they are mammoth in size.

Nissan’s solution to brake heat issues was to throw a whole heap of money at carbon ceramic rotors and a pair of tiny air ducts in the front lip spoiler for the SpecV. HKS Kansai on the other hand have come up with a product a little more subtle and available. Simple air guides that bolt to your lower control arms and direct air towards the calipers.

Could it be this easy? Well real world results are not abundant at this stage so we’ll have to wait and see. These sell for about 39,900 yen in Japan.

Thanks to Mindlessoath for posting this over on NAGTROC.

Secondly is a new product we haven’t seen before (well we got a preview over at CBA-R35 blog) which is a carbon fiber exhaust tip surround. This replaces the standard plastic exhaust surround seen below.

These parts will be available later this month from HKS Kansai.

There is a new interview up on the website with HKS Kansai boss Toshiyuki Mukai about their impressions of the Nissan GT-R and also on tuning the new addition to their stable. GTR-World were also able to test drive HKS Kansai’s GT-R

Mukai-san comments that the first thing they noticed was the high seating position and that this had to change. The seat was also not supportive enough under high G cornering and finally the position of the seat also was not conducive to taking long trips. To fix this they fitted the Recaro TS series seats in red up front which lower the seat height as well as providing a considerable weight saving.

HKS Kansai Full Twin Exhaust

April 22, 2008 Comments off

HKS Kansai have developed a full twin exhaust from the front pipes back. They have managed to do away with the rear central muffler design as well instead opting for two inline mufflers with a more direct exhaust flow path.

As with all HKS Kansai parts the quality looks to be top notch. We’ll let you know once some back to back dyno tests have been performed on the power increase you should expect from this type of setup.
