AMS Alpha 12: TX2K11 GT-R Dyno Competition 1st Place Finish
This past weekend, AMS brought out the gray Alpha 12, owned by Tim Sanders' to the TX2K11 Nationals to run in the Dyno competition and quarter mile at Lonestar Motorsports Park - the backyard of Hennessey Performance.
All awd vehicles ran on their Dyno Dynamics dynamometer. The Alpha 12 produced a final AWHP number of 1069, taking first place without having full traction on the rollers! The excessive wheel spin certainly effected the readings and left a nice coating of tire residue on the Dyno platform.
Our record 9.1 quarter mile video will be up within the next few days so be sure to check back soon!
AMS Alpha 12 R35 GT-R : email@example.com at the TX2K11 Nationals
A lack of good weather and open tracks around Chicago made the TX2K11
Nationals a great opportunity for us to bring Tim Sanders' Alpha 12 for
some preliminary quarter mile track testing. During one of the test and
tune sessions, Sander's gray Alpha 12 was able to fire off a firstname.lastname@example.org
run. The car is not nearly dialed in to its full potential as of yet but
still produced a V-Box verified 60-130 time of 3.58 seconds during that
same run. Considering this was its first time to the track, the outcome was
still very much a success.
We will have more updates on the Alpha 12 as the weather gets warmer and
the tracks open up here in the Chicago area.
AMS Alpha Omega: TX2K13 Event
AMS brought the Alpha Omega back to Lonestar Motorsports Park this past
weekend for the annual TX2K event (TX2K.com). This has always been a big
event for AMS giving us the first major opportunity of the year to meet
with our customers, fans and dealers alike.
Since traction was a major issue for Omega last year, our goal this year
was to focus on the traction control system and the new Syvecs 4wd
Controller to help hook the tires to the track better. This was our first
time testing the new 4wd controller and it wasn't quite a plug and play
operation. Additionally, the absence of all the high horsepower RWD cars they had
last year laying down sticky rubber made for some slick conditions at this
year's TX2K event.
On Saturday, Omega made a series of three low Boost passes in an effort to nail down the
effectiveness of the new 4wd Controller and dial in the traction control
system. Despite still having major traction issues on the third pass, Ivan
was able to take Omega on an email@example.com pass down the track to secure
the number one spot in qualifying for the GT3 Unlimited class. Chris Black
and Ivan worked on troubleshooting the traction control system after the
drag event closed for the day and felt that had things figured out for
Sunday's race. The goal for Sunday was to run a little more Boost in order to best the current R35 record
of 8.62 set by Ivan in Omega at this same event last year.
The track once again was very slick and we continued to fight traction on
Sunday. Chris had the TCS working but the system is based on front vs rear
wheel speeds. At a marginally higher Boost level than Saturday this was causing all
4 wheels to spin almost the same speed, making the traction control
ineffective on such a slick surface. With a 30mph crosswind kicking up
again, Omega was proving difficult to handle while still not even running
near its full power potential. The 1/8th mile time and speed needed to
break our previous record was not a possibility because we could not apply
any more power in the first half of the track. Ivan launched hard on all
four passes for the day in hopes to hook up cleanly out of the hole.
Traction still wasn't there and he had to counter steer hard to keep the
car from running into the wall or opposite lane on each pass.
Beating our current world record of 8.62 @ 173.81mph was still the foremost
objective. Each time Omega got loose during the launch, Ivan hoped to ease
off a little and still pull off a record time by making it up on the back
half. By the 4th pass, it was determined that the track was just not going
to provide enough grip to break last year's record. On that pass, the
tires spun from the launch to almost the 1/8th mile where the wheel speed
finally dropped from 140+ MPH back down to 117 MPH when the tires finally
hooked up. Since the times were not improving and after some serious
consideration, the crew made the decision to bow out of the event for a
better opportunity to beat our existing GT-R record.
All in all, AMS was happy to take home the trophy for fastest trap speed of
the weekend at 172.9 MPH and also click off the quickest ET for a GT-R with
an 8.78. It was also a pleasure to see Andrew Sweet take home the GT3
Unlimited Class trophy with his Top Speed Motorsports built Alpha 12 GT-R.
AMS would also like to congratulate ALPHA Dealer Top Speed Motorsports
Doug Wilks, Nathan Cicio and the rest of their crew for also having the
fastest GT-R of the weekend on the road course.
A special thanks to Peter Blach and his team for putting on another great
event. TX2K is always our favorite event of the year and we certainly look
forward to returning to Houston next year.
AMS would also like to thank our sponsors for their generous support:

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 vs 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition! - Head 2 Head Ep. 52
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman travels to Barber
Motorsports Park for a head to head matchup with the brand new Chevy Camaro Z/28 and a well
known heavyweight, the Nissan GT-R. But not just any GT-R, the 2014 Track
Edition which packs a 545 hp twin-turbo
V-6, a 6-speed dual clutch transmission, sticky Dunlop tires and AWD
traction into a car without rear seats. The Z/28, by way of contrast,
features a massive 7.0-liter naturally-aspirated V-8, a 6-speed manual
transmission, and tail-out RWD. While it does still have rear seats, nearly
every other non-essential component has been removed. Moreover, the Z28's
tires might be even stickier! The front ones, enormous 305-sections, are
certainly the widest tires ever bolted to a production car. Both cars are
phenomenal, and both cars make rational men scream, "Gimme!" But only one
can come out on top. Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

Nissan GT-R Switzer P800 - Dyno run with backfire!
I've received the video from Totalcarconcept.com of the Dynorun! The Switzer P800 kit
turns the GT-R in to a 800 HP monster. With a few PSi more Boost the 840 HP is no problem. They have 98
and 100 octaan fuels. The AMS sportcats are much bigger and give good
power, also with sportcat! It's possible, they can do it! :)
