It’s that time of year again.. thousands are burning up the 30+ miles worth of carpeted aisles at the infamous SEMA Show in Las Vegas! The STILLEN Team is no exception, with a big booth introducing the world to the new AP Racing Radi-CAL line of calipers used in the STILLEN-engineered Big Brake Kits.
These new Radi-CAL road calipers get there heritage from the racing Radi-CAL high performance calipers launched in motorsports in 2007, which have been dominating the likes of F1, F3, NASCAR and countless others. This new caliper design features a 2-piece aluminum body with H-structure, and a non-symmetrical design developed to have a large reduction in mass yet improved resistance to braking torque. Another benefit is increased caliper cooling surface without decreasing structural rigidity.
STILLEN has developed applications for popular setups, including Nissan 350/370Z, Infiniti G35/G37, Audi A4 / A5 / S4 / S5, BMW 325/328/335/M3/M5/M6, Chevy Corvette/Camaro, Ford Mustang, and many others.
We will be releasing much more information as we return from SEMA, and the response has already been overwhelming at it’s introduction!
When nothing but the best will do, serious customers look to AP Racing and STILLEN.

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.

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:
For the rest of gorgeous photo shoot

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.
