performance-car-guide.co.uk – Alcon, one of the world’s foremost braking specialists and a name synonymous with stopping in a hurry, has announced that its highly regarded Superkit range includes fitment options for the Nissan R35 GT-R.
Nissan really did excel itself with the R35 GT-R. Now almost a decade old, the mighty ‘Godzilla’ still has the power, poise and engineering clout to trounce all but the most extreme of supercars. It’s a genuine automotive milestone and a car that serves to show the world that, when the chips are down, no one can touch Japan for game-changing technology.
Though a fine handling and stopping machine in standard guise (it should be, it’s made in a hermetically sealed factory remember), the R35 GT-R can be made to perform even better by careful addition of choice aftermarket parts, and Alcon’s kit is without doubt the most complete offering available.
The kit contains both front and rear discs, 400mm at the front, 385mm at the rear, and both feature Alcon’s bespoke float fixing drive system. Lighter than the already featherweight OE equivalents, the discs offer a far better surface area for the pad to bite into and feature a crescent groove pattern for improved gas release and increased initial ‘bite.’ The carefully designed grooves have been arranged in such a way as to provide exceptional heat dissipation in even the most intense, high-pressure of braking situations, reducing the chances of the discs warping or glazing. The discs also boast Alcon’s unique Turbulator casting, a feature that’s been proven to maximise cooling efficiency without compromising strength.
