STILLEN is excited to announce the availability of select AP Racing brake systems in a limited-edition caliper color – Competition Gray.
Racing fans will notice this color is exactly what full-blown race calipers from AP Racing look like. But unlike the race-only hardware, these are built for every day use with secondary dust seals, anti-rattle clips and extra corrosion protection. Finally – the best of both worlds with no compromises! Read more

STILLEN and AP Racing are proud to announce the release of upgraded Curved Vane Front and Rear Brake Rotors for the R35 Nissan GT-R. These AP Racing Rotors are a track-proven upgrade to the OE Brembo components.
The STILLEN / AP Racing Curved Vane Rotors utilize a curved-vane core (48 vanes) which allow for better thermal management, providing improved cooling over the OE pillar vane design. They also have 12 curved slots which improve pad bite and not prone to cracking under severe use, which the OE rotors are plagued by.

Well, the rally has been over for about a week and a half now. I have returned home from the 2008 SEMA show and I have finally been able to sit down and breathe a little bit. I’ve watched the videos that you will soon be seeing. I have sorted through all of the pictures which will be making their way on to the blogs soon. And, most importantly, I have thought about the week’s event.

On newsstands now! Modified Magazine’s Project G35 receives a full AP Racing brake upgrade this month, and the improvements in performance are impressive.
After realizing that a pad/fluid change could not bring the factory brakes up to snuff, Modified Magazine decided to step up to the big leagues with our AP Racing G35 Front Big Brake Kit (AP3700) and our AP Racing G35 Rear Big Brake Kit (AP3750).

Steve Millen and the STILLEN crew are very excited to once again be participating in the Dunlop Targa Rally held in New Zealand with the STILLEN Ford GT. This is an annual road rally held on 38 stages run over closed public roads, with a variety of vehicles, from classics to Porsche’s, EVO’s, STi’s, Skyline’s and everything in between.
The competition stages are public roads which have been closed by the police and driven flat out. The goal is simple, the car that covers the distance in the shortest time wins.
EDIT: Here’s some additional coverage, photos, and previous stories from our friends at Autoblog.com
Videos of the 2006 Targa Rally, including in-car are available at the STILLEN GT Project Vehicle page

Infineon Road Course in Sonoma, California is one of the most challenging tracks on the NASCAR Nextel Cup circuit. With 12 turns and high speed straightaways leading into 30 mile per hour corners these 3,000+ pound cars abuse their brakes to the limit.
On June 22nd Kyle Busch put his AP Racing brakes to the ultimate test and came from 30th starting position to win the race. This win moved him even further ahead as the points leader for the Nextel Cup Championship.
Immediately after getting out of the car the first company he thanked was AP Racing. This is even more significant considering he did not thank his PAYING sponsors until after he thanked the manufacturer’s of a product his race team pays over $30,000 to use. If AP Racing brakes can help Kyle Busch win in such a demanding environment, imagine what AP Racing street kits can do you for your car during the day to day grind.
Here is an excerpt of his victory speech from the Joe Gibbs Racing website:
“We unloaded here this weekend and we were absolutely horrible,” Busch said in his post-race press conference. “We were so bad we didn’t know what was going on. These guys worked their tails off and never gave up. We worked on it and worked on it – made changes to everything – and finally figured it out. I have to thank AP Brakes, MAC Tools, M&M’s, Snickers, Interstate Batteries, NOS Energy Drink and everybody that’s helped us here. For Toyota to win here at their home race, that’s pretty special, too.”
