Making performance parts for Nissan’s is something we have been passionate about for over 20 years here at STILLEN. We take pride in the quality and craftmanship we put into our products and we stand behind every one that leaves our doors. One of the biggest compliments and testaments to the quality of our products is when a Nissan dealership not only sells our products in their showroom but also makes it a point to run our product on their own dealership vehicles.
KINGSTON NISSAN is one of those dealerships that we are proud to have in our network. Last week, they sent us over a few photos of their STILLEN equipped vehicles in their dealership. A Turbo’ed JUKE with our STILLEN Juke Exhaust, a GT-R with the STILLEN Y-PIPE, installed and some shots of a STILLEN P.O.P. display in their showroom were included in the photo package.
As you can see, things are looking really good over at Kingston Nissan, so if you are in the the Ontario, Canada area make sure you give them a ring or stop by and see what they can do for you.

Last week, we briefly touched on the STILLEN equipped GT-R’s that signed up for this year’s ONE LAP OF AMERICA. Needless to say, we were really excited to see how things would shake up for 2012. All weekend long, I was glued to blogs and twitter feed’s (shout out to The Smoking Tire for keeping me updated all weekend long) that were broadcasting the highlights of the race and after all the dust settled the STILLEN equipped GT-R’s took spots 1 and 2 on the SSGT1 Big Bore podium.
Last year’s winner TOP SPEED MOTORSPORTS ran our AP RACING J-HOOK rotors and STILLEN sway bars during their 2011 campaign. They were more than happy with the performance level of those products last year, so they decided to go with the “if it ain’t broke than don’t fix it” formula for 2012. Our J-hook rotors and sway bars combined with the rest of the products on the vehicle plus some skilled driving secured them another victory this year.
Nipping at the heels of TOPSPEED MOTORSPORTS all weekend were the guys from SPEED CONCEPTS. Featuring our AP RACING J-HOOK rotors and STILLEN sway bars, along with Password JDM widebody front fenders they made some pretty serious changes for 2012. Combine those parts with the skills of Tyson Timperley, and Todd Treffert behind the wheel and you have a formula for a second place victory.
We congratulate both teams on their 1, 2, victories and can’t wait to see what these guys have in store for next year.
GOOD LUCK GUYS!!

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.

Dealing with fast car’s all day long rarely gets boring, but sometimes the luster of seeing a “dream” car like a GTR simply just parked in our parking lot day after day can wear off. Thankfully some of our customers in Russia like to put their GTR’s through their paces. They also like to challenge their buddies with some other dream machines while doing so.
If you haven’t heard of DRAGTIMES-IFO, make sure you cruise over to their YouTube page and subscribe immediately! Their goal is to bring you the best Racing videos from Moscow, and their video of the UNLIM 500+ races are simply awe inspiring. That race is automotive greatness at its best. Six categories of vehicles from the Italian, German, American, British and Japanese automotive industry all with a MANDATORY horsepower MINIMUM of 500+ are all competing to see who can post up the fastest standing mile time. Lucky for us, those cars need a way to scrub off such immense speed numbers and that’s where our GTR Carbon Ceramic Matrix rotors come in.
These rotors represent the best of the best braking technology and are available for one of the best cars on the road today. As it turn’s out, they are very popular with the guys who regularly compete in the UNLIM 500+ series. I’m sure you can imagine how quickly stock brakes can get warped when consistently stopping a car from 150+ mph, because of the CCM-X’s rotors ability to run 140 degrees cooler than the stock setup up, they are less prone to warping. Check out the vid below for some jaw dropping standing mile action courtesy of DRAGTIMES-IFO.
