GKTech R32 weld in anti squat reduction kit


Recommended Posts

Hmmm. What I want to know is, why the f**k are they available on the US site and not on the parent (Australian) site? I would be all over these like a fat kid on a mars bar if I knew they existed.

As to the design: It appears to be exactly what I have been imagining in my head to fabricobble to achieve that goal without having to remove the subframe.

As to the steel guage: It appears to be fine. It's about the same as the existing brackets. It is welded on the underside of the frame and braced up to one side of the original bracket. Seems like it should be OK.

I might have to ask the (unts why they're not offering it here in Oz.

I a have set I've been meaning to install. Having driven plenty of s13 and s14/15 there is a big difference in how they drive under acceleration on track. Imagine material is up to it as similar to factory sub frame mounts.

@GTSBoy seem to be in stock here

I wouldn't be unsure about fitting them. As soon as I manage to escape the hermit kingdom of WA I'll be ordering some and some spherical bush replacements for the LCA and wanging them on the car.

Not sure if this works for R32s, however if possible - perhaps fitting in a S14 or S15 subframe with the GKTech subframe offset bushes might be a better solution - OEM+ kind of thing.

I know S13s with S14/15 subframes drive so much better at the track. You're not going side to side on power!

The 32 has the same pick up points as the s13 that were changed in the 33/34 to being the same as the 14/15

i know a lot of the fast 32s have changed it

I already have an A31 subframe that I spent a lot of time and effort (stripping, cleaning, painting, bushing) fitting to get rid of HICAS. It has also been noted that the subframes in the later S chassis cars are lighter duty than the R chassis cars, for whatever bizarre reason. So that would be a somewhat backward step.

It's very much a "standard' thing to do. You fab up some new little bracket bits and weld them on so that the LCA is rotated down from the original location, by about 2". It's normally done with the subframe out of the car because it is not a lot of fun trying to fab it all up and weld the bits on in the right place upside down on a hoist. You have to have the LCA available to fit up because you have to weld the new brackets on in the location that is defined by where the front inner of the LCA ends up when you rotate it down from the original spot.

Motive did a video on it for the R32 GTR project sometime last year. That really made me realise that the best possible thing would be a something that used one or both of the original bracket points as a locator to define where you had to put the new brackets. And lo and behold....GKTech to the rescue. Flap disc off some paint, weld on, repaint, done in an hour. Apart from having to do the spherical bush conversion on the LCA first.

I was wondering if a set of r33 arms would just bolt in if you use the gktech kit

Maybe. But there's no particular reason for them to just because they work on the R33 subframe. And it wouldn't solve the introduced bush twist issue either. The R33 subframe pickup points would be welded on to align the arm pivots on that plane of rotation with the front mount lower than on R32. When you lower the front mount on the R32, the rear mount's axis is still aligned with the original front mount's higher location. Thus you load the rear bush when you push the front one down. There would be no escaping having to put sphericals in at least the rear bush location. I would assume that the GKTech kit's front brackets would be set up to work with the rotated axis of the front bush and wouldn't absolutely require the spherical there, but probably safer to do both, plus take out any hope of the car soaking up any NVH!

Interdarsting. Not on their "All Products" list page. Not findable by searching with keywords. How did you locate them?

typed "anti squat" in search menu and came up. WA probably trying to play China internet games.

    • Thank you for sharing your experiences. I believe your post means nothing to anyone or any of the businesses you mentioned. It’s probably better we all thank these businesses for providing us with products and solutions that you see nowhere else in the world. They work hard to provide us with those solutions, don’t shit on it. A business like xanavi probably has the right to charge 1100 USD for an SD card upgrade for CarPlay on the GTR, better than going to Nissan to be charged 4000+ to just get done local maps update right? Considering the car is 200-700k, I think it’s all due.  How did you save someone 1000 dollars by linking the SD card upgrade and then linking an irrelevant product that they got the idea from? You’re misleading people. You’re then making someone think that the box does the job? You idiot.   About the lesser knowns, what makes you so sure that those businesses people aren’t appealing to customers in their location/market? (AUmark) You seem to not only have a problem with miscommunication but also not being able to read. I just jumped on nifty city’s website and it’s in your local currency, where did you get 1100 USD from? It says 699 USD, or 1000 AU (your currency). They also run discounts? Your peripherals need improvement.   Grom v line has been on the game for longer than you’ve had interest in the so called “Japanese market” that you know so much of.    This post is not really helpful to anyone in the market looking to buy a unit. Let people run their business and customers to decide for themselves.   Regards, An interested customer.   
    • Small addition to my post above. This morning I noticed my door ajar light was turning on occasionally when it shouldn't. I had a stray 8vdc being fed back from ground side with key out. After taking a closer look at the original cluster, I noticed nissan was actually aware of this as they added a diode. I tossed in a 1N4007 and it's resolved. 
    • New coolant overflow for the r32.the good old boys in blue that let me rip around with a 4” exhaust no issues at all. We got it good over here like that. 
    • Hey Ben those are some extremely wicked numbers for 22psi and the kill tune on e85 at 800 probably feels great. What are running for a gearbox? nice work mate glad to see the blue is working proper. Send me your base timing map when you get a chance I want to see how cranked up you got it over 16 psi, cheers
    • The little 10mm bolts are holding for dear life. 30 psi on ethanol/meth injection and things are feeling fricken spicy now! I hope the boost gods are with me at this power level feels like my face is going to the back of my head now.
