Utilizing Steve Millen's expansive racing heritage, STILLEN is
proud to release functional high quality urethane Side Skirts for
the Nissan GT-R R35.
Enhancing the aerodynamic performance of such a finely tuned car
like the GT-R is no small feat. When developing the car
Nissan did a great job of developing an aero package that works
well, but left some room for improvement for the true
enthusiast. One of the most common complaints of GT-R owners
is the car has a tendency to "push" when exercised hard on a race
course (understeer). Two ways to fix this condition are
through the suspension, or increasing downforce via aerodynamics of
the car at higher speeds. Increasing the aerodynamic
downforce keeps the front end of the car planted and therefore
improving front grip, reducing the "push" effect.
Continuing the aerodynamic stabilization of the GT-R, STILLEN has
developed new side skirts with a 2 inch ledge built in to apply
more downforce to the car. This design comes from the testing
performed on the legendary NISSAN 300ZX, campaigned in the IMSA
sports car series at Le Mans, Daytona, and Sebring. Tested in
the Lockheed Martin wind tunnel, the Nissan engineers found that by
enhancing the side ledge on the rocker it applied a incremental
amount of downforce at higher speeds thus keeping the car planted
and more stable through high speed corners.
Another major benefit of the rockers is the greatly improved
appearance. Offering a much more aggressive look and race
proven engineering these rockers are sure to catch attention and
compliments. Just like all STILLEN body work these are
constructed out of durable polyurethane, ready for paint, and offer
a limited lifetime warranty. Perfect for daily driving or
track days and utilize the factory skirt mounting points to ensure
a perfect fit and finish.
