T1 has been working on some updates to their very popular T1 Transmission Braces for the GR6. The lower section is now utilizing some CNC pieces that have saved a significant amount of fabrication time. They have also started using some different components in the upper piece that save fabrication time and have an even more precise fitment. These improvements make for a better looking and fitting piece, and most importantly a more affordable piece. Fab time makes up much of the cost on these and by cutting down significantly there they were able to drop the price from $875/set to $495/set.
The previous generations were a zinc yellow color and we have switched to a bright-nickel color on the new generation. There are no issues with the first generation ones so if you already have them there is nothing to worry about.
If you are unfamiliar with the reason behind these braces; with hard launches and wheel hop, many R35 customers have broken the transaxle case at the rear differential location. The differential literally tries to separate from the front half of the case. The result is a destroyed transmission case that you CANNOT buy from Nissan, the only replacement option is a new transmission at over $13,000. Our upper and lower brace kit ties the differential area of the housing to the front half of the housing by tying the strong points of each half together.
Both braces are bright-nickel plated for corrosion and rust resistance.
