We’d like to think so.. case in point..

It’s nice to know with new innovations in the automotive world, new technology, new products, pyretic gas prices, new anti-enthusiast laws, changing shifts in every industry, there are always the staples that never seem to change.

You might think I’m referring to such companies and products supplied by K&N, Eibach, AP Racing, Bilstein and many others.. but in this case.. not so much.

See below the fold to hear our thoughts..

On Saturday July 26th the STILLEN team headed out to the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA with the STILLEN Ford GT to do some testing on the infield road course during the Speed Ventures open track day. It was a great day and we learned a lot about the new parts and were able to test out the new Michelins, we were hoping would provide the additional traction needed for the beast.

Flame ON!

The car handled alright with the stock wood (I mean ummm….rubber?) After the first session we decided to throw on the new Michelin PS2′s. This is a nice tire and has quite a bit more grip. These tires are a little bit shorter and quite a bit wider (two inches to be exact.)

Nissan recently hosted their official Grand Opening and Dedication for their Corporate Headquarters in Franklin, Tennessee.  Nissan asked Steve Millen to be on hand for the festivities, including taking 25 lucky employees who had won an internal Nissan contest for a spirited ride in the new Nissan GT-R.

While at the event, Brian Sullivan from Fox Business sought out Steve to discuss the GT-R.  Check out the video of the interview below:

Yesterday Steve Millen was out in Los Angeles for the first delivery of the Nissan GT-R, and while out there Adam from StreetFire.net got a chance to interview Steve regarding the recent controversies surrounding the Road & Track and Car & Driver testing of the Nissan GT-R versus the Corvette Z06 and Porsche GT2, and various other topics.

Video of the StreetFire.net interview is below:

EDIT:  It would seem that this is again creating some buzz in related forums, listed below:
