Upgraded NX: Breaking 10!


Here the P11 G20 front lip and NX nose have been removed. You get a close up view of the side exit 3 3/4″ exhaust – which is actually quite quiet – and the BorgWarner turbo. You can also see the EDM adjustable headlights – very rare in North America – that are another unique piece on this very custom automobile. Pic by AES Auto.
Don't be confused – those really are the rear tires even though they say front! All of the stock bushings have been replaced with an ES bushing kit.
Brakes are also important. Wilwood looks after the car in all departments. The clutch and brake pedal are Wilwood units. The front brake setup is a Wilwood 11.75″ big brake kit – Dynalite calipers and massive rotors to bring the car to a stop. Carlos worked with GSpec and Fast Brakes to obtain these components. The rear brake calipers are stock and so, believe it or not, is the gas pedal. Quite possibly the only stock pieces on the car! AES Auto not only performed a wire tuck on the engine bay but also made new brake lines and moved them inside the car.
Now, this is what I call stance! NX groupies will recognize the EDM 100NX rear bumper that has been paired with an MS Designs lower lip.
In the centre of this pic you can get a good view of the heavy duty scatter shield that is surrounding the clutch and flywheel. There's no question, with this kind of power and constant 5000 RPM launches, you want to have the security of knowing that parts will be contained if something goes wrong.
Looking past the AES Auto logo into the car you can see the Mazworx cage, the Sparco seat, and that it means all business!


    1. Hi Chris,
      At the time of this article (about 7 years ago) Carlos was running a Back then was running the P11 transmission with the clutchmasters twin disk. Since then Carlos worked with AES Auto (Burnaby, Canada) and Mazworx to develop the Nissan/Honda K adaptor so the car has a K transmission now. Life has kept Carlos busy and it hasn’t been to the track in quite some time, but I’m sure it will be out again … soon!

      1. I am building a nissan 100nx drag racing project with SR20det fitted with k20 gearbox. However, i have an issue on which drive shafts to use. Can you guide me accordingly? I need to know who sells or manufactures the driveshafts (from k20 gearbox to 100nx knuckles).
