Whether buying a gift for your friends or yourself this December, we’ve put together some of our favorite picks. Hopefully this helps but if it doesn’t, a subscription to Super Street always works!
Whiteline Sway Bars and End-links
$235 (sway bar), $167 (link kit)
Better handling and more grip? Who doesn’t want it! Here’s Whiteline’s 27mm adjustable front sway bar along with a heavy-duty end-link kit for the Nissan S13/S14, one of the best sellers. Whiteline makes an application for virtually any car so be sure to look them up for any suspension-related goodies this holiday season.
Project Mu Club Racer Rotors and NS400 Pads
From $217 (rotors), From $68 (pads)
A great gift idea without having to fork out mad cheddar, Project Mu rotors and pads are easily a top staff pick. The rotors feature eight slots per side to offer consistent braking. While the pads aren’t the sexiest things, they’re designed for the street with low noise and dust levels while improving all-around stopping performance.
Professional 301-piece Mechanic’s Tool Kit
If you know anyone who needs replacement tools or is trying to get into wrenching, this kit from Pittsburgh is the best bang for the buck. Comes with virtually everything you need to do basic installs plus more.
Sparco WTX-7 Air Helmet
Nothing says ‘I love you’ more than a carbon-fiber helmet. The WTX-7 Air is from Sparco’s newest line of helmets and features multiple vents and removable/washable padding. Looks damn buff, too!
Alpinestars GP Tech Suit
Ask any racer, any real racer…Just kidding. But honestly, if that special someone in your life is getting serious about road racing, it might be time for a safety suit. Alpinestars offers this lightweight suit that’s highly breathable and is still easy to move around in. We agree it’s expensive but you can’t put a price on safety!
Meister Aviator Watch
When you’re trying to buy a gift for someone who has everything, a new watch never fails. All Meister watches scream ‘swag’ and this new black ‘n gold Aviator is something we’d rock everyday.

Drive M7 Energy Drink
a couple bucks
This carbonated can of caffeine and vitamins is a pretty damn good alternative to your typical energy drinks. With a hint of apple flavor and a name like Drive, why wouldn’t you want to try it?
Forget about gettin’ those spendy action cameras cause the Igloo case allows your smartphone to turn into an action cam! It uses a universal 1/4"x20mm mounting system and has been tested on the track! Cases are currently available for the iPhone 3S/4/4S, iTouch and Droid.
Hybrid Racing Slim Oil Cap
This accessory will make any Honda/Acura owner giddy. The cap allows for more valve cover to hood clearance and comes in black, gold or polished.
Osaka JDM Stickers
If you’ve picked up a copy of Super Street this year, you’ll know all about Osaka JDM. Legends in the old school Honda scene, you can now rep their name with these limited-edition stickers.
Sparco Reflex Pedals
Still one of the best-looking pedals out there, these Sparco’s are offered for manual and auto cars. Nothing beats its high-polished look and perforated design, plus it makes a stellar gift if you’re on a budget.
Hybrid Racing 8th Gen Civic Shifter
This is Hybrid Racing’s newest shifter for the 8th gen Honda Civic. It offers better centering action, a less sloppy feeling and a shorter shift throw that’s adjustable up to a 53% reduction from the stock throw. There’s also an adjustment for shift knob height. Legit!
MXP Titanium Shift Knob
This ‘lil fella will make a great stocking stuffer. The MXP knob’s made of aircraft grade titanium and comes with various inserts and thread sizes to fit pretty much any manual-equipped car.
