Thank you sir! COTA is our next event in September and it’s the NASA National Championship race, kind of a bug deal for us. There will be some heavy competition so I am doing everything I can to get these brakes reliable!

Yes, I glued a small piece of wood there because I don’t like the way the diffuser bends when you use that jack point. Also it allows the car to go up 1/2” higher haha

No shit.  WillAll included an aluminum spacer in their rear differential cooling kit because they didn't like it either.

 

I HATED having to use that jack point and did all kinds of contortions to avoid it - but sometimes there was no other option.

Oh that’s interesting! Nissan did a lot of awesome things with this car, but there are a few little ‘ooops’ kinda things like that. I use that jack point everytime the car goes back into the shop after a race weekend. It’s the easiest way to get all 4 jackstands under it.

I agree.

 

And at $72,000 in 2009, there were a lot of "forgivings" we were willing to give Nissan at that time for a world beater car.

 

But in 2018?  Still?  No stock transmission cooler?  No stock brake cooling?  Are you kidding me?  And you want WHAT MSRP for that?

That one also moved the air guard to the side to avoid hitting the lines for the diff cooler.

 

Whoever has my GT-R has that on it - not enough time to remove it.

I'd love to see what you did for the front brakes. They need it more then the front and you did a beautiful job on the Rear. Nice Job!!

My first setup was to use the revosport lip ducts in my factory front lip. I ran hoses from them into each caliper. My next setup was an additinal custom pair of ducts from BSE. We then disconnected the original flex hoses, and used deflectors on the sway bar for the Revosport ducts.

I should also add that I recently discovered a leaky master cylinder and replaced that. So certainly some of my issues with air in the system were related to that failed part.

And then there's that...

 

I hate to admit these cars are getting old....but they are.

 

Glad you have that sorted.

Nissan is in the MILKING PHASE and no real improvements can be expected while they decide if an R-36 makes sense... The  MILKING  has gone on for 3 plus years ......
