NST Hydro Handbrake Install Video

The NonStopTuning Hydraulic Handbrake is an excellent upgrade for any drift or rally vehicle.

Drifting and rally requires extensive use of the handbrake and quickly exposes the inherent weaknesses in the standard cable type handbrake supplied by the OEM. The NST handbrake requires less force to lock the rear brakes and the handle can be used in a variety of positions, by simply changing the setting of the angle lever.

CNC machined and anodized for extra strength and durability
One Year Warranty against manufacturer defect

Standard Color: NEO CHROME
Also Available: Black, Silver, Red, Blue, Gold, Purple

3/8 – 24 | 7/16 – 20 fittings

Universal Item: Professional installation highly recommended.

Drifting and rally requires extensive use of the handbrake and quickly exposes the inherent weaknesses in the standard cable type handbrakes supplied by the OEM. The NST handbrake requires less force to lock the rear brakes and the lever can be used in either a normal or upright position, by simply changing the position of just one bolt.

Will Parsons has been the flagship driver for NST since 2007 and has years of experience with the AE86 chassis in series such as Formula Drift, Lone Star Drift, Xtreme Drift Circuit, and D1GP USA.  Parsons and the team have enjoyed a great deal of success in the Lone Star and XDC series, and look to continue building the program in FD, following a successful rookie campaign in 2013.

Taka Aono NST AE86

Taka Aono has more experience with the AE86 chassis than any other drifter in the USA, and is the only ten year FD veteran to campaign with the same chassis during the existence of the series.  Joining the team for the 2014 season, Aono brings with him an incredible amount of professional experience and knowledge, with a very long and successful resume in drifting, road racing, and instructional driving.

NonStopTuning is extremely proud to have these two great drivers on board for the 2014 season.  Here’s to a great year!

NonStopTuning 2013 Formula Drift Atlanta Recap

FD ATL MED - WP - 009

Will Parsons – 2013 Formula Drift Atlanta – NonStopTuning AE86

Drift teams seem to deal with a variety of challenges at each turn.  Some are minor; travel plans or logistics… others require an ability to adapt on the fly.  The NST crew are no strangers to last minute challenges and projects going late into the night, and were faced with adversity on the road to Atlanta.

After having experienced engine failure at the Formula Drift season opener in Long Beach (blog recap) Will and Davy Parsons quickly built a new F20C engine for the NST AE86.  Will’s new setup for FD Atlanta would be built for more boost, run on Q16 race gas, and would make upward of 500hp.  That was the plan.  Unfortunately in the drift world, things rarely go as planned.  The AE86 went on the dyno the night before the crew would leave for Atlanta.  Wheel horsepower numbers climbed to 460, 470, 480… this is where things got interesting!  Unfortunately the clutch would start to slip at these power levels.  The torque output was just too much for our old clutch kit.

Knowing that the team would need to leave in a matter of hours, a decision was made and the car was loaded up on the trailer.  We sent at email to Shelly at SPEC Clutch and asked if we could drive through Alabama to visit SPEC on our way to Georgia.

While on the road the following day, I made a phone call and spoke with Jeremy at SPEC.  Jeremy was kind enough to rush a new kit for the turbo F20C and instructed us to grab the kit later that day.  Thank you Shelly and Jeremy for all your help.  You guys rock!

SPEC Facility

Our next task would be reaching Joseph Dale’s in Atlanta.  You may know Joseph Dale, Jason Scott, and Dennis Nguyen from the awesome SOUTHRNFRESH website and blog.  Joseph was kind enough to allow a NonStopTake-over of his garage.  The AE86 drivetrain was quickly dismantled and the new clutch was installed.  Joseph, founder and editor in chief at SOUTHRNFRESH even surprised us with a full blog feature on this portion of our trip.

The following couple of days brought a few firsts.  Will Parsons would lay down his first qualifying runs in Formula Drift, would become the first 2013 rookie to qualify for the field of top 32, and would become the first rookie to score points in FD this season!

FD ATL MED - WP - 007

Saturday brought with it the round of top 32 and another challenge… rain.  Will Parsons battle against Matt Powers resulted in a chase run in dry conditions followed by a lead run in the rain.  This was the first time we had seen rain this weekend and the wet course proved to be too tricky to navigate for many of the drivers throughout the remainder of top 32 and 16.

The NST drift team had an awesome weekend at FD Atlanta.  Will Parsons showed, as he has time and time again, that he has what it takes to battle adversity, layed down some great runs in the new car, and showed why he is a serious contender for 2013 FD Rookie of the Year.   We will be back at it at round three on June 1, 2013, in Palm Beach, Florida.

Many thanks to all the fans who came out to support the drivers and teams, we certainly appreciate your help and support.  A special thanks to all the media personnel providing amazing coverage at this event, and a huge thanks to all our sponsors this season:  SPEC Clutch, 86motoring, AUTOCOMP, BC Racing Suspension, WEIR Performance, and D3 Performance.

NonStopTuning AE86 – 2013 Formula Drift

Thank you to all the fans who came out to say hello at Formula Drift Long Beach this weekend, and those of you who watched online.

NonStopTuning drivers Joshua Steele and Will Parsons kicked off their rookie seasons with a bang.  Steele did a great job and was one of few rookies to lay down two solid runs during qualifying.  Parsons was ready to rock, but was sidelined by engine failure during the morning practice session just before qualifying.  The team will head back to Houston and prepare for round two of the 2013 FD season.  We look forward to seeing you in Atlanta!

2013 NST Anniversary Car Show & Drift Competition Recap

2013 NonStopTuning Anniversary

2013 NonStopTuning Anniversary

Brendan Hunyadi says he wasn’t screaming while experiencing his first ride-a-long in Ross Le’s Army green 280Z at the 2013 NST Anniversary drift event held at Gulf Greyhound Park in La Marque, Texas, Sunday, March 24.

He is calm and I’m not screaming, but I’m like ‘we’re going really quick and completely sideways’,” he said. “When we were done he asked me what I thought and I was like, ‘that was amazing.’”

Hunyadi is a prime example of what this event is really all about.

It gives us something to do not on the streets to have fun, and something that we want to do and just not hurt anyone else on the road, but it’s fun they open it up to us and let us all out.”

After learning on figure eights and circles, Hunyadi said this was his favorite part of the event to actually be able to go drift at high speed. It’s his first NST event and it won’t be his last.

I love it. I’m coming to round two,” he said. “My dad and I are already looking for a drift car.”

Over the past three years Will Parsons and the NST crew have traveled an average of 30,000 miles a year, to pursue a passion for drifting.  Here’s a small sample of the 2012 journey.

NonStopTuning 2012 Xtreme Drift Circuit Wrap Up. Media Galore!

Will Parsons NonStopTuning AE86

The 2012 season was packed with high powered fun and excitement.  The Xtreme Drift Circuit added new courses, new drivers, and even crowned a new champion.  NonStopTuning’s Chelsea DeNofa (back to back 2010 & 2011 champion) was no longer a full time driver in the series, having left to pursue what would become a very successful rookie year in Formula Drift, and that left the XDC crown up for grabs.

Chelsea DeNofa NonStopTuning BMW E46

The NST squad had a great year in 2012.  The combination of Will Parsons, Joshua Steele, and Chelsea DeNofa went on to record more podium finishes than any other team in the series.  Will Parsons continued his streak as the only driver to have competed in every U.S. round of XDC, and continues to hold the record for being the only driver to have finished in the top four, at four consecutive events; more than 100 competitors have driven in the series since March of 2010.  NST was also the only team in the 2012 series to have two drivers finish the season in the top eight of the points chase.

1st – Forrest Wang – 449 points
2nd – Mike Pollard – 334 points
3rd – Nate Hamilton – 330 points
4th – Chelsea Denofa – 312 points
5th – Will Parsons – 300 points
6th – Stewart Leask – 296 points
7th – Dan Savage – 285 points
8th – Geoff Stoneback – 248 points
