Ultimate Retrofit - R35 Brakes On R32-34 Gt-rs

Recommended Posts

I hope this hasnt been posted before...

Stumbled upon this and thought it was worth sharing around, even though i doubt anybody will get to do it... :)

If there's one good thing about heavy performance vehicles, it's that they invariably have exceptional brakes. Throwing the braking hardware from a much heavier car onto somthing nimble and lightweight usually means loads more braking torque and greater resistance to fade. Backyard tuners have been doing this for ages, but now things have just been kicked up a notch by this, the first R35 brake caliper retrofit adapter that allows owners of "lesser" R32, R33 or R34 Skylines the chance to feel the titan grip of those 6-piston Brembos.

The adapter system was developed by an as-yet unnamed workshop, although we're sure we'll be seeing something like it on the shelves quite soon. All that's needed to mount these suckers on your 90s Skyline are two hefty-looking aluminium adapters that go between the steering knuckle and the calipers, the bolts to fit them together, and those monstrous calipers and 380mm floating rotors. You'll need some big wheels to squeeze them in, but it's possible with 18-inch Rays TE37s or Nismo LMGT4s - it probably helps if you've got a GT-R too, as the extra fender width and more aggressive offset would help shoehorn those wheels in.

As for cost we've got no idea, but considering the R35 is still a relatively new model we're betting that the total for all the hardware involved would be bordering on extortionate. Better to wait until a few more R35's get thrown on the junkheap first.

Yeh the alloy adaptors are about $600, then you just need to get the rotors and calipers which are going for about $6,800 including rears.

So not exactly a bargain upgrade. But great to see Nissan using a radial mount caliper, if only they did that with earlier model GTRs then you would have had a cross between a Lotus and F40 caliper, only as it woudl be radial mount it would have been oh so easy to throw larger rotors at the std caliper

and the article you linked is a bit lame. not much info. for the record the workshop is Endless R. and the price is from memory 850,000JPY so about $9500 landed. and it's only front brakes.

Thats not the same kit.

R35 GT-R brakes are different to that white R34 GT-r you are referring to...

Hey guys I have a r32 gtr I want to do r35 front brake upgrade with 18x9.5 te37, what offset will clear the brakes?

Would expect all offsets that you would think of fitting to a 32 R will clear based on a google search that said a +22 clears.

Search R35 18 inch brake clearance

First result that comes up from GTRlife.
