The 4 Pisont front kit under part number AP3120 uses a 330x28mm two piece disc and you have the option of getting either crossed drilled and slotted or just Slotted. You also have 2 color options when it comes to the 4 piston caliper: Red, or Black will look really nice in the wheel well of any BRZ / FR-S.
If you’re looking for the next level of braking performance we also offer the AP6100 6 Piston kit.
The AP6100 kit uses the AP RACING 6 piston caliper with larger 355x32mm two piece discs. You also have the option of three different Caliper colors, and two rotor styles.
Both of these AP RACING kits bolt up to the factory locations and are designed to work well with the factory ABS systems and brake master cylinder. They also feature dust seals over each caliper piston to ensure reliability and high performance for as long as you own your vehicle.

As most of you know, the R35 NISSAN GT-R is notorious for cracking it’s factory rotors, it has been a major problem for GT-R owners looking to take their cars to the track. For 2012, Nissan changed the size dimensions of the factory rotor size from 380x34mm discs, to 390×32.6mm discs. Essentially making the OE rotors larger in diameter but thinner in thickness, AP Racing saw this as an opportunity and beefed up the thickness, materials, and Diameter of their J-Hook rotor kit in order to greatly expand the brake heat capacities compared to stock.
Not only does the kit fit the 2012+ NISSAN GT-R’s but it can a lso be retrofitted to fit 2008-2011 GT-R’S as well. We will be offering a retrofit kit, to ensure every generation of R35 GT-R can take advantage of these amazing brakes. (pictured below)

The list of amazing cars using AP RACING brakes continues to grow every day, we have touched on some of those vehicles before but today is a perfect time to highlight the ULTIMATE AP RACING equipped vehicle.
What makes it the ultimate? Other than the obvious name, how about it beating the Koenigsegg CXX around the Top Gear test track by over 4.5 seconds, and the Pagani Zonda R by over 5.5 seconds. Yeah I’d say that pretty much makes it the ULTIMAte! Check the video below for the record breaking run:

Since today marks the unofficial start of the 2012 Tire Rack One Lap of America with the first drivers meeting of the year, we thought it would be fitting to highlight some of the vehicles running STILLEN products.
The One Lap of America is one of those racing series that is as equally bad ass as it is grassroots, as quoted from the One Lap of America website: “ The TIRE RACK ONE LAP OF AMERICA is the toughest 8 days of racing featuring the fastest street-legal cars on America’s most challenging racetracks.”
Ill sum up what makes this series so awesome in a couple short bullet points.
- Drivers must drive to 9 racetracks across the county to compete in Time attack, Drag and Skidpad events in the same car they will be competing in.
- Drivers only get ONE set of street radial tires (tread wear 140 or above) to complete the 5000 mile journey and track events in.
-The driver with the most points at the end of 8 days wins
Very simple yet very intense.
Last year’s winner TOPSPEED motorsports ran our AP RACING J-hook rotors for their 2011 campaign, they loved them so much they decided to run them again this year.
I’m sure I’m missing a few other GT-R teams that are running STILLEN product so if any one has any info or news they want to sent over please have them email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
We wish everyone the best of luck and we can’t wait to see how this year turns out.
