Continuing product development on the new Nissan GT-R, STILLEN has produced an upgraded adjustable front and rear sway bar set for the R35 chassis.

An upgraded sway bar really helps the GT-R keep flat through the corners, and the adjustability in both the front and rear bars allows the driver to fine-tune the suspension to suit driving needs at will.

Our friends at MOTORZ TV approached us when looking at brake upgrades for their 2008 Mustang GT, and we were excited to get a chance to put some parts in their hands and get their feedback.

MOTORZ is a TV show framed around the DIY auto enthusiast who loves to get his/her hands dirty, and provides a step-by-step install on products, just like it’s done in a typical garage or driveway setup.

As they received the product, Chris Duke (the producer and on-screen personality) immediately ripped open the boxes to check out the STILLEN Sport Rotors and Metal Matrix High Performance Brake Pads and give them a once over.

The response I received back from Chris upon getting a chance to get the boxes open:

Not only do the STILLEN sport rotors look super cool and performance minded due to the cross-drilled holes, they are clearly machined with quality and care in mind.  We can’t wait to install them on our project vehicle and really put them to the test! – Chris Duke, MOTORZ

Chris took some time to shoot a ‘PARTZ’ segment highlighting some of the features of the rotors, which we have embedded below.

Later this month, check back as they are doing a full install episode of these Sport Rotors and Metal Matrix Pads onto the Mustang, in full style.

They have a YouTube channel, as well as being carried on numerous video media channels, specifically iTunes and more recently expanding into cable TV in certain areas.

We encourage you to check it out, and subscribe to not miss the upcoming STILLEN install:

We were in for a treat today as we got a chance to take a peek at a freshly painted R35 GT-R, done in a reminiscent blue that was so striking on earlier Skylines.

Several of us in the office had questioned why a blue wasn’t an option for the current GT-R, and this owner decided this wasn’t acceptable and took matters into his own hands, or rather the hands of extremely capable Wet Works Garage here in Costa Mesa, CA to handle the color change.

We knew Wet Works was working on one, and we first caught site of it from the guys at GT-R Blog who posted some pictures earlier today, and couldn’t wait for it to get here, which it promptly did earlier this morning.  Quickly shot a horrible quality walk around with a point and shoot camera here in the office, and some additional photos.

For more information on the build, visit the owners blog here.  There are photos of each stage of the paint, from initial masking to final polishing.
