Jonathan has been complaining lately about the suspension in his Si.  He’s had the car for 3 years now, and it’s been on Eibach Sportlines all the while.  After 45k miles, the stock suspension was feeling a bit tired  The car had begun to crash a bit over the rough local roads which are so prevelant here on Long Island.  On the highway, the car still felt fine, but we knew it was tie for a change.

Removing the stock struts proved what Jon was feeling.  The stock units compressed fine, but the rebound was very slow.  This greatly effects the way the car feels on the road, especially on local roads.

The car spends most of it’s time commuting to and from work, and then some fun runs on the weekend.  We didn’t need anything crazy, just a nice, easy to install setup that wouldn’t break the bank.  Budget is at the top of everyones list nowadays, and we didn’t see the point in outfitting the car with coilovers.  Jon really likes the height of the Sportlines, and they actually do ride quite nicely.  We ended up ordering some of the Tokico HP + struts.  We installed them along with a new set of SPC camber bolts.  The net result is exactly what we wanted.

Hawk Performance Brake Pads for G35 Sport, G37, G37 Sport, and 370Z!!!

10 Feb

Hawk has just released their brake pads for the Infiniti G35 Sport, G37, G37 Sport and 370Z.  Hawk is one of our most popular brake lines as they combine a wide range of compounds, exceptional performance, and affordability.

Performance Ceramic – The performance ceramic is the perfect street pad – good stopping power hot or cold, very low dust and low noise. A great economical performance pad.

The HPS is a Ferro-Carbon blended material, and offers increased performance vs. conventional stock pads, with higher fade resistance. These have lower dust vs stock pads, and are well suited for sports driving (not for track use).  Our most popular compound.

The HP+ is Hawks dual duty pad. These pads offer increased coefficient of friction vs the HPS compound, and are well suited for street driving as well as club track days and HPDE’s. While not a full out race pad, they do offer a substantial improvement in fade resistance vs the HPS, though they are a fair amount dustier, and can exhibit some noise when cold. This is the ideal pad for those who don’t want to have to worry about running separate pads for high performance street and track use.
