GReddy R35 getting the power to the ground

Because it's not just a straight line monster, this week at GPP, we have been working on dialing in the power from our 20G Twin Turbo Upgrade and GReddy 4.3L VR engine to work with the R35 chassis.  For this we decided to try out some readily available GTR components that can be found in the USA. Like some sticky GTR specific Toyo Tire Proxes R888, 285/35ZR20s and 315/30ZR20 for our light-weight Rays G2 wheels.  And to beef up the traction we enlisted the help of KW suspension, with thier GTR Clubsport Coil-over Kit and Whiteline swaybars and links.  For extra braking we, went JDM, with some 400mm Front and Rear Top Secret, Japan 2pc slotted rotors 
(For more details on our modifications please look for an update soon on our GReddy R35 specific blog)

Below are some shots taken this week of our test session at the Streets of Willow, with Driver Dai Yoshihara and KW suspension's Chris Marion and MotoIQ's Mike Kojima.

The revised GReddy R35 is now sporting our new V.2 graphics.
Dai said on Twitter " 's R35 GTR is sooo fast!!"

The extra test session, was in preperation for an upcoming Magazine Tuned-Supercar shootout.  Guess who is representing the Japanese tuners?  (update coming soon...)
