Road & Track Magazine has practically been living at STILLEN documenting the build on the STILLEN GT-R. We’re in the final stages of the build, with the BASF paint recently finished, Password:JDM dry carbon goodies, suspension, AP Racing carbon ceramic brakes and final installation beginning, including track testing in preparation for the 2009 Targa Newfoundland Rally.
Road & Track have released three new videos, one covering the GT-R in the paint booth, one highlighting the ultra lightweight Password:JDM dry carbon parts and some other upgrades, and the most recent with Steve Millen discussing the current suspension upgrades being done to the car.

STILLEN is proud to release something we’ve been developing and fine-tuning for quite some time, our Secondary Cat Delete Y-Pipe for the Nissan GT-R!
