For the ST1 class of Japan’s Super Taikyu series, NISMO prepared the GT-R RC. Much of the upgrades included suspension and brake work to make the car compatible with racing slicks. As a result the track is increased by 40mm on the front and rear. Safety upgrades include an FIA-spec roll cage, 120-litre fuel tank and air jacks.
