thanks Ian for the links....I remember when that video from HKS USA came out to show the difference between their kit and the SBD one...

 

I had forgotten how well these things were made and the fit and finish to it.  Good to see again....man still love my set up!

You definitely made the right choice with the HKS kit. It's hard to argue with a kit engineered over the course of several years, by a huge, publicly-trade company with multi-million dollar budgets, on one of the fastest time attack GT-Rs in the world.

Congrats to the BPA team on this honor! 

 

Such a shame to see all those R32's sit. Its blasphemy to us here stateside, but I guess to them those cars aren't very rare, so it's like us seeing a junkyard filled with Eclipse GSX's or something like that...

So a lot of you guys seem to really want the HKS DCT coolers. For anyone still sleeping on it, there are only a couple left, so get them while they're still available!

Just got mine installed. It's crazy seeing your trans temp cooler than your engine temp. Super high quality stuff and good fitment.

Agreed!

 

One of the most important parts for anyone with either a highly-modified GT-R, or those that regularly visit the track.

Looks like the fender vents are part of it.

 

The tires in the article say Advan A005 but it doesn't look like it since A005's are full slick...so I'm not too sure.

 

man after seeing the Evasive motorsport car, I am really liking the Ben Sopra kit....

 

maybe if I bust up my TS on a track, I might go this route.  I wonder how much just the bumper and fenders are and if there are any pictures of the inside (for ducting).

Bumper and fenders only would be $13,000 shipped (includes bumper, fenders and the canards on the HKS demo car).

 

With regards to the ducting, in all honesty, all of the Bensopra parts are very basic and rough in terms of how they're delivered from the factory. The expectation is that if you do intend on using them for racing, that you make any ducting from scratch for your individual application.

holy moly! LOL $13k is a lot

on FB, Evasive said as much, they did a bunch of custom ducting and a new splitter that you can stand on.

Yeah, the Bensopra parts need a lot of work to be track ready. I'm sure the HKS demo car is probably running some kind of proprietary splitter (and ducting).

 

I think the kit looks good, but when it comes to function, I think the Top Secret kit you already have is track-proven.

A friend's stock car with R888 did a 1:56, so a stock car on stock tire should be sub 2:00. 1:47 is fast, Lyfe's stripped out Alpha 10 did a 1:44 couple years ago. But the king at BW did a 1:38.

I was eyeing the Phoenix Power Circuit front bumper that came with a nice splitter. But no brake cooling ducts deterred me as well
