GT-RR.COM Partners with GT500 Parts Supplier Craftsquare
GT-RR has been selected as the exclusive North American distributor of Craftsquare’s upcoming R35 GT-R specific mirror conversion. The Craftsquare application will be a direct replacement for the stock R35 GT-R mirrors, using original mounting locations for a clean and simple bolt on installation. Craftsquare is used in Super GT racing by Nissan because of their functional advantage in aerodynamics as well as weight savings. Craftsquare, because of their wide use and history within the Japanese Super GT series has benefited from extensive wind tunnel testing. The countless hours of wind tunnel testing has resulted in determining the unique and functional shape of their mirrors. Each set of Craftsquare mirrors is produced in Japan with aÂ full carbon fiber housing to maximize weight savings.
Craftsquare has a long history of success on race cars in countless forms of motorsport, yet is also very popular for street applications on Porsche, Ferrari, Lotus and many Japanese vehicles such as the previous generation Nissan GT-Rs. The mirrors are known for being highly functional during daily driving, maintaining a comparable horizontal range of vision to the stock mirrors. This is accomplished by being wider than most “racing” aftermarket mirrors and also by use of a wide angle mirror. The result is less blind spots and a more usable mirror set for the street or circuit.
The design is being finalized now for the Nissan R35 GT-R street application, it will differ in shape slightly from the Super GT500 racing application due to the car’s mounting location and body dimensions being different between the street and the race car. This new design from Craftsquare will be titled as a “TCA-F” mirror set and will be comparable to what is found on the Super GT Lamborghini Gallardo pictured below.
Once actual product photos are released they will be on display immediately at www.gt-rr.com.
Official pricing has been competitively priced at $795.00 USD, all inclusive of importation costs, duties and insurance from Japan.
An initial order has just entered production in Japan and the mirrors are available by pre-sale immediately. The mirrors will be exclusive items and will be imported in limited numbers. Orders will be filled on a first come first served basis.
