AMS Alpha Omega GT-R at TX2K12: firstname.lastname@example.org Record!
With the tracks closed in the Chicagoland area until late April, our annual trip down to the TX2K GT-R Nationals events in March offer us the first opportunity to test new vehicles that we've been working on throughout the winter months. This year, initial testing of the AMS Alpha Omega at the TX2K12 was a definitive success. This was the first time the Omega has ever made an appearance at the drag strip and much was accomplished and learned.
On Saturday, the Alpha Omega began on a low Boost setting around 24lbs. After that, Boost was increased to around 35lbs max and our first clean pass was just short of the record ET by three thousandths of a second (8.79@169mph)! At the end of that pass, one of the Intercooler pipes popped, shooting downward at the under tray. This, along with the deployment of the parachute (causing the GT-R to dip) was believed the cause of the lip ripping off the vehicle as seen in the video. Ivan Phipps, our mechanic and driver of the Alpha Omega worked quickly to replace the lip, under tray and bumper so that we could make another pass.
The last pass of the day was made just before the lanes closed. Ivan launched hard with a 1.47 60ft, and began losing traction badly a little farther out. Most people at the line thought he would abort with the lanes being so narrow, but he stayed in it and straightened out to break the ¼ mile record with an email@example.com pass! Again, the lip tore away from the bumper and the cause was finally attributed to the high speed and larger Intercooler interfering with the lip support brackets. Ivan already had a solution in mind, but without another front end, the crew would have to pack it up and head home.
With the car breaking loose on the last pass, the AMS crew felt the Alpha Omega had more left to accomplish on Sunday so they worked hard to source a donor GT-R for some parts. That evening, our sales manager was able to source a front end from NAGTROC forum friend two hours away and then found that Hennessey had an extra bumper and lip in storage that they were also willing to offer.
Ivan began early in the morning to repair the front end and reinforce the lip with a set of modified brackets. The preparation was intense yet efficient, and the Alpha Omega made its first pass of the day with an firstname.lastname@example.org -- breaking the record it had achieved the day prior off a slower 1.53 60 ft.
We attempted to run one more pass with the Boost turned up past 35lbs, but the track offered very limited traction and Ivan aborted the final pass. Overall, the car ran strong all weekend long and was ready to take on the Texas Mile the following weekend. BE SURE TO SUBCRIBE TO OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL. The Texas Mile video is one you will not want to miss!
AMS would like to sincerely thank Tim Sanders, Hennessey Performance and "Wreckless" (nagtroc.org member). Without their help, generosity and support, this achievement would not have been possible.
Special thanks to Dodson, Exedy, Sheptrans and Driveshaft Shop for their support of the Alpha Omega project as well.

AMS Alpha Omega GT-R Top Speed Record: 233mph "Drift"!!!
After smashing the GT-R 1/4 mile record at the TX2K12 with an
email@example.com 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.
