New from STILLEN: Racing-bred stainless steel brake lines for the Nissan GT-R!
This is the first brake line upgrade on the market that does NOT require removing the factory hard lines. Stainless steel braided lines are stiffer than the typical rubber brake lines, but nothing is stiffer than hard steel tubing. That is why it is important to keep the hard lines in place for the firmest, most responsive brake pedal feel.
Aircraft-style fitting details are used throughout for leak-free connections – no banjo fittings! The factory junction block functions are replicated to eliminate any possible rubbing issues with suspension travel or steering wheel input. Doing so allows the front lines to be bolted to both the upright and the strut for the most positive location possible. Read more

We are sorry we haven’t had a chance to get some of the cool things we’ve been working on up, we have a bunch of new content that’s in the can, we’ll be working feverishly to get that up.
In the meantime we had some GT-R’s out to the STILLEN workshop this morning, and while we had some of the new AP Racing Curved Vane Rotors out, thought it might be a good time to grab the camera and shoot some video with our Brake Manager Chris Bernal (with little to no warning.. sorry Chris!)
These rotors are an excellent upgrade for anyone serious about performance on their GT-R, and correct the problems associated with cracking cross-drilled holes and wear issues of the OEM rotors. Bonus is they are half the cost of the factory replacements, with the improved performance and longevity.
These rotors are now available in a Slotted or J-Hook rotor face configuration, depending on the goal of the owner. More information on the AP rotors can be found on our previous blog post on these rotors.

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.
