New Product: HKS Hipermax IV SP Drag Coilovers for R35 GTR
November 13, 2018
When Nissan initially designed the GTR, they did not exactly have drag racing in mind. It was supposed to be the supercar which was faster around the track than almost every other supercar at the time. As tuner realized the VR38 could make massive amounts of power, straight line racing events became dominated by the R35. The fastest R35s are now in the 6-second range in the 1/4 mile. Keeping over 3000 horsepower in a straight line is a handful, so HKS has sought to make it easier with their drag coilovers.

The FK8 is the first Civic Type R to come to the states, and itâs without a doubt the best Civic Type R ever. Not only is it significantly more powerful than any other Civic Type R before it, but the chassis is exceptionally well balanced, and the brakes are pretty good. Itâs arguably the best front-wheel-drive car ever produced. Enthusiasts know that even the best cars in the world can always be improved upon. One of the first modifications many FK8 owners choose is an aftermarket exhaust. Not only is it an easy way to pick up some power, but it also adds some much-needed sound to the driving experience.
Although a lot of enthusiasts prefer small coupes such as the BRZ or M3, there are a lot of people out there who like big body coupes. With that larger body, you are gaining a huge amount of weight, but youâre also gaining a much better interior and room for a larger engine. The S63 AMG is a perfect example of this. Itâs huge and comfortable, but underneath that long hood is a powerful twin-turbo V8 producing 585 horsepower and 664 ft-lbs. Like many enthusiasts, even S63 AMG owners eventually want more power.
