As the successor to the Skyline GT-R, the Nissan GT-R was widely lauded as a giant-killer, out-performing many other sports cars and supercars in a range of challenges. While OE (iron) brake performance was good, a number of owners commented on their short lifespan when on the track, so ST took the opportunity to develop a CCST brake disc that offered improved or equal performance as well as longer lifespan.
Working with a number of owners and distributors, we developed a CCST brake kit that fit within the existing calipers with minimum spacing and offers longer lifetime, large weight reduction from the OE iron brakes and better on-track brake performance.
ST also worked with distributors and suppliers to make improvements to the kits over time, offering better performance and improved lifetime, in particular by adding a cooling kit to the car to extend brake life further (not included in kit).
