We’d like to thank folks for coming out for the first GT-R Monthly Mini-Meet here at STILLEN. With a total of 12 GT-R’s on-site it was a good turnout for a basically unpublicized event, and gave people a chance to hang out and see what we’re up to.

One of the first stages of gutting a race car is to check your starting weights. We loaded it with a full tank of gas to see how much the car weighed, and well, as expected the GT-R is no Georges St. Pierre.

When building a race car the ultimate goal is to achieve the best power to weight ratio possible. Over the next few days we will be stripping our GT-R down and weighing all of the components that come out of it. We will be weighing the doors, fenders, hood, trunk and everything else to see what we can do to lighten up those parts of the car as well. Read more

STILLEN is announcing plans to compete in the 2009 Targa Newfoundland Competition Tarmac Rally being held from September 12-19, 2009. This is a 6-day 1,400 mile paved road rally through the winding roads of Newfoundland.
With Targa Newfoundland fast approaching, STILLEN has begun preparation on the 2009 Nissan GT-R rally car. For the past 7 years Steve Millen has made the annual trip to New Zealand to compete in the Dunlop Targa Rally with a Ford vehicle.
2009 marks the first time in 14 years that Steve Millen and Nissan will head back to the races together. With multiple world championships, race wins, and world records together this will be a tough team to beat. Read more
