  • We don’t think anyone will dispute the importance of brakes on your car for safety reasons but we also know that not just any brake will do if you are interested in things beyond the safety issue; such as, brakes that you can feel confident about, that make driving easy and for those race enthusiasts brakes that reduce lap times. So let us introduce you to the archetype of brake designers and manufacturers, ALCON. This is a company whose repertoire of products start with something as small as tiny brake-by-wire controllers for Formula E racing cars to calipers needed on 35 tons of armored vehicles. Since the company’s founding in 1983 by John Moore who is both an engineer and sports car racer ALCON has had as its goal customer satisfaction.

About Alcon

We don’t think anyone will dispute the importance of brakes on your car for safety reasons but we also know that not just any brake will do if you are interested in things beyond the safety issue; such as, brakes that you can feel confident about, that make driving easy and for those race enthusiasts brakes that reduce lap times. So let us introduce you to the archetype of brake designers and manufacturers, ALCON. This is a company whose repertoire of products start with something as small as tiny brake-by-wire controllers for Formula E racing cars to calipers needed on 35 tons of armored vehicles. Since the company’s founding in 1983 by John Moore who is both an engineer and sports car racer ALCON has had as its goal customer satisfaction.

Excellence is the key word in describing ALCON whose client base is world wide and whose goal is to satisfy even the most discriminating customer who is interested in extremely high quality and low volume brakes. In addition ALCON designs and manufactures clutches and other automotive components and all are treated with the same engineering excellence as in the ALCON brakes.

ALCON knows that at the heart of all great products is the ability to design something that is better than the competition’s and that not only works better but lasts longer. The importance of research and development is not lost on ALCON and they are always looking toward the future developing new ideas and they do this through the use of primo topology optimization and 3D printing and the revolutionary lattice core constriction.

Simulation has allowed ALCON the ability to improve the quality and efficiency of their products by being able to do such things as examining the way air flows through a disc or adding turbulence-inducing ridges to the vanes. All of this results in a lighter product that has increased thermal efficiency requiring less ducting, improves aerodynamics and creates an ability to slow quicker and be faster everywhere else

And ALCON recognizes the importance of the manufacturing process as the key needed to create the very best products. Consequently, they use the epitome of five axis CNC machines with which to create components from forgings and solid billets of aluminum and all calipers meet the highest standards through extensive quality control. To further assure you of a primo product performance testing and measurement is conducted with ALCON on site dynamometers and their NVH dyno can map all noise issues, vibration and harshness.

The ALCON engineers know that their components must be strong, light and efficient and so they use top notch CAE design software and avant-garde technologies such as topology optimization. But ALCON does not rest on its laurels but rather looks to the future and recognizes every opportunity available with one such opportunity being in the area of 3D printing and lattice core construction.

Whether you are in the market for brakes for your high performance road car or a racer who needs the special brakes ALCON is sure to be able to meet your needs and if you are interested in clutches or other automotive components ALCON might have just what you are looking for.

Just use our 24 hour online service to find the right EIBACH or B&G springs for your Nissan model.

Your Nissan Skyline, SENTRA, Maxima, 240SX, 300Z and original equipment radiator only channels away about 30 percent of the heat generated by your engine but efficiently managing the heat effectively will benefit your Nissan by making it more efficient in terms of horsepower and will result in better use of your performance modifications, Aftermarket MISHIMOTO radiators expand cooling capacity and are designed to outperform your original radiator. The diameter of the cooling tubes is the determining factor in greater efficiency and copper/brass cooling tubes must be small because the material isn't rigid enough to support wider-diameter tubes but the strength provided with Aluminum allows for broader cooling tubes, providing greater surface area, which increases heat transfer capacity. The MISHIMOTO brand is an outstanding cooling system affording you a cooler engine and lifetime warranty and they are application specific and can directly fit on your Nissan,

The Original Equipment headers for your Nissan are ordinarily designed to take up a minimum of space and aftermarket performance headers are installed in order to boost the rate of exhaust flow out of your Nissan engine. The tubes on aftermarket performance headers are generally bigger in diameter than the runners on a manifold and they are mandrel bent to assure the opening of the pipe stays the same radius where it curves. American Racing Headers are engineered and constructed using 304 Stainless Steel and are fabricated with precision cut, 3/8-inch warp-resistant and leak-free stainless steel flanges. The primary tubes are individualized for your specific engine output to prevent any concession being afforded to a tight engine bay. And for your 350Z there is the inimitable Billy Boat Exhausts with exhaust systems that look good as well as sound good. B&B products are polished to a showroom finish and the exhaust systems are available with several different tip styles. Need a dual exhaust for your 350Z then try INVIDIA Gemini, designed for primarily dual exhaust vehicles. As with all INVIDIA Exhausts, the Gemini cat-back exhaust systems combine are exceptional in quality and design and the performance is outstanding. The INVIDIA Gemini exhaust system, with its high quality mandrel-bent stainless steel tubing, robot-TIG welding and polished finish are sure to meet your Nissan needs. The Invidia Gemini muffler gives your Nissan a deep and toned exhaust sound without being excessively loud. The INVIDIA Gemini exhaust systems are of a Cat-Back design which replace all the piping from underneath your vehicle after the catalytic converter. Most INVIDIA Gemini cat-back exhausts are available in 3 tip styles: rolled stainless steel tips, rolled titanium tips, straight titanium tips. And for your 370Z there is DC Sports Headers of T304SS stainless and/or T409SS ceramic coated for protection and finish, plus the Intake is high flow, open element.

Body kits make your Nissan 350Z and 370Z visually more aggressive - a plus when it comes to drawing attention on the street, or even in a parking lot. DURAFLEX aerodynamics, a miscellany of fiberglass, plastic, and flex resins creating sui generis features that provide an extraordinarily durable product that ships well and can withstand abuse. For better road handling and race Performance the addition of body parts by DURAFLEX are a proven winner when it comes to improve aerodynamics.
