New - Skunk2 370Z Springs
New from Skunk2 are their 370Z lowering springs. They're mid-market-priced at $499 via air (which is there or there-about with RS-R, Tanabe, Espelir, Eibach, H&R and others) so they jump in to a rather catered-for market already.
They provide a small 35/25mm drop front / rear although spring rates are not yet published. Such a drop will tuck the front and rear wheels down over the tyres creating a sporty look for street. Because of this low drop, we recommend these for street or use with shocks (i.e. Koni, who provide a 20-30mm drop themselves). This compares with RS-R 8.15/8.87kg and -15mm drop ($580) and Tanabe at 5.9/6.8kg and -25/-20mm drop ($470). The Euro / US options from Eibach / H&R offer around a 15-30mm drop and are priced from $555 delivered.
So, if you're in the market for some sports springs, the rates from RS-R suit, but if you're looking at a street spring with a good drop then Skunk2 or Tanabe suit nicely.
We've had a small competition going on our facebook page for a month now which involves simply liking the post for you to go in to the draw to win AU$150 to go towards the World Time Attack in Australia.
Strictly speaking, you can use the prize money for what ever you like - entry fee, travel, accommodation, food, spending money - or tuck it away for a rainy day.
The winner will be drawn before the World Time Attack event on September 15th and all you have to do is like the post for one entry. This will give you plenty of time to orientate yourself towards attending this awesome event!
TRA Rocket Bunny Boss Kit
TRA Kyoto have been a hot topic lately (along with Liberty Walk - both make wild kits for various cars!) with their crazy Group C inspired kits for the Nissan Silvia and their new Boss Kit is no exception. The styling probably doesn't come as a surprise to those who grew up with the older Nissan / Datsun chassis's (or dare we say it - Dodge!) so it's likely going to take a little bit of time to sink in. What do you think? They're available now via Greddy USA but the wait is terrible as they are all Custom made and shipped to the USA first!
Along with the Nissan kits theres also a few other kits for various other performance cars like the FD Mazda, 86 Toyota and Nissan Z-Cars - plus others! For a full list and information on the kits, contents and install / lead-time notes, visit the Greddy page.
