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!

Recently we took our updated ALPHA 12 to the track to do some more testing.
As of recent, the limits of the factory block had been reached and our
engineers went to work to devise a new way of reinforcing the engine. To
prove our new method, we knew we had to put the updated ALPHA 12 package
through a series of Grueling tests. The car was placed on the Dyno for over three hours in 100
plus degree heat where it produced over 1300whp at 35 psi of Boost.
Upon completion of Dyno testing we took the car to
our local drag strip where the weather was not much more favorable.
Scorching sun, 90 degree track temps, a density altitude of 2745 and high
humidity proved to produce very slick conditions. Still we agreed that the
package had to be placed through the most brutal of conditions to ensure
the integrity of the new ALPHA 12 package.
It was at the track our Special Projects Technician, Ivan Phipps subjected
the GT-R to no less than 10 drag passes. The car was run over and over
again producing times in the 9.0 to 9.2 range and all over 160mph.
The ALPHA 12 GT-R was spinning all four tires all the way through 4th gear
on every run and not getting 100% traction until fifth gear. Even in these
conditions the AMS ALPHA 12 GT-R was able to reset the ET And MPH with a
During that pass, our V-box recorded a verified 60-130mph time of 3.46
seconds making it one of the fastest accelerating street cars ever
We have plans to go back to the track very soon under better track and
weather conditions to hopefully improve out time. Stay tuned!

AMS Alpha 12: World's Fastest R35 GT-R
AMS Performance brought the Antigua/Barbuda Alpha 12 GT-R to the October
2011 Texas Mile in an effort to set a new world record for the fastest R35
GT-R. Even with windy and unfavorable conditions at this fall's Mile event,
the Alpha 12 owned by Andrew Hadeed of Antigua Barbuda was able to secure
the title of world's fastest R35 GT-R with a top speed of 216.9mph!
AMS would like to thank Mr. Andrew Hadeed, Mr. Habib Gebrael and Rocket
Science Racing - our Alpha Dealer in Antigua, and the people of Antigua &
Barbuda for their support of this build. This Alpha 12 will soon return
home to your country with a new world record!
AMS Alpha 12 GT-R: Full Weight 8 Second Street Car
Another AMS R35 GT-R completes an 8 second 1/4 mile pass! This particular
GT-R is owned by our dear friend and customer, Tim Sanders. Our fans should
know that Tim has been a part of the Alpha GT-R program since its early
stages of development. In fact, without his passion and support of the R35
GT-R and the Alpha GT-R program, neither would be as far as they are today
in terms of performance. All of us at AMS sincerely thank you, Tim Sanders,
for being a part of our efforts with the R35 GT-R!
On July 12, 2012, Sanders' R35 GT-R ran an email@example.com pass on an Alpha
12 GT-R race fuel map. This is a typical Alpha 12 setting producing 1500 horsepower / 1100
ft-lbs of torque. On 93 octane, it produces 1150 horsepower / 950 ft-lbs
torque. What makes this pass so remarkable is that Tim's car is a full
weight R35 GT-R with full interior and nothing removed. This pass is
indicative of what an AMS Alpha 12 GT-R owner can do in the 1/4 mile.

AMS Alpha 12 R35 GT-R : firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com
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 GT-R Top Speed Record: 233mph "Drift"!!!
After smashing the GT-R 1/4 mile record at the TX2K12 with an
firstname.lastname@example.org pass, the Alpha Omega GT-R went straight to the Texas Mile
in an attempt to reset the GT-R top speed record of 218mph.
The morning was spent preparing the Alpha Omega for tech inspection. A 1/2
mile shakedown pass was performed early afternoon. With much more power
than what we had worked with last October, the Alpha Omega was literally
flying down the track. Nonetheless, Ivan Phipps, the projects technician
and driver for the Alpha Omega kept at it - pulling a 221mph top speed late
Friday afternoon which was enough to claim the record!
With the absence of wind Saturday morning, the decision was made to press
on. The Alpha Omega only used approximately 1050whp of its available
1600whp on Friday's record pass. With approximately 1250whp dialed in, the
crew wanted to see if the car could at least break the 230mph barrier
before heading home for the weekend.
On Saturday's one and only pass down the Mile, Ivan was able to get the
Omega to the 1/2 mile marker with a speed of 197mph. The car ran loose with
stock aero and absence of a rear wing, but the throttle remained pegged to
the floor. Ivan passed the 1 mile marker at 233.1mph.
It was a new record for the R35 GT-R, but not without a hitch. The Omega
hit a dip in the runway past the mile marker which caused it to bounce.
Combined with the effect of the parachute, the force was enough to lift the
rear wheels of the Omega off the ground. When the car rebounded, it lost
control, sliding more than 90 degrees sideways.
We plan to continue testing the limits of the GT-R platform with improved
aero and a final drive gear. To follow the Alpha Omega GT-R project, join
us at Alpha GT-R or AMS Performance on Facebook.
