A joint venture project between Pride Performance and Robot Racing, bringing their knowledge and experience together to manufacture superb top quality carbon fiber parts. Using military grade carbon fiber with ZERO fiberglass, our goal is to shave as much weight as possible from a standard R33 Nissan Skyline GT-R while improving structural rigidity and performance. The complete exterior shell; including the roof, pillars, panels, fenders and bumpers will be made from carbon fiber. Our Carbon R demo car will be the pinnacle display of the services we offer here at Pride Performance for street cars to full fledged race cars. All aero parts made for the Carbon R Project will be available for purchase. Stay tuned for updates as we progress with this build. Please contact us for more information on the build or products.

Meeting a celebrity is certainly a unique experience. You see them all the time in movies, TV, magazines, etc and grow a familiarity with their being. The moment you meet one in person, that experience changes. You're graced with their presence and thrown back by their energy. The same goes when being graced by a full blown race car.
Driving a lowered car looks awesome but can sometimes get frustrating. Dodging every little crack in the road takes practice and precision. Going over speed bumps, entering/exiting driveways and lots takes great patience. Getting annoyed that your car can't even get an alignment because it gets caught on the rack. Then having to go crazy sourcing a shop with a flat rack. The worst is the cringing from that nasty gut feeling trying avoid hearing that dreaded SCRAPEEE.
