AMS Alpha Omega GT-R at TX2K12: email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com -- 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: 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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:

The World's Fastest Lotus? - /TUNED
Frank Profera has spent six years making his Lotus go faster, stop shorter, and corner harder.
Though it only has to move around 2,150 lbs, Frank's Lotus makes 680 wheel
horsepower with a
twin-charged 1.8L engine; giving it a better power-to-weight ratio than
Mario Andretti's Formula One Lotus. It's an ongoing project that may never
be finished, because of Frank's never-ending obsession with speed. We had
to take it for a ride.

Alpha Omega GT-R New World Records : 2013 WannaGoFast Chicago 1/2 Mile Shootout
The Alpha Omega was back in action this past weekend at the 2013
WannaGoFast Chicago 1/2 Mile Shootout! Omega ran both Saturday and Sunday
consistently improving its trap speed after each pass. On its final pass
down the runway on Sunday, Omega was able to trap 214mph! This earned Omega
a 1st Place finish for this WannaGoFast event and the fastest trap speed
ever recorded at any of their events! In addition, Omega was able to break
a few other records including:
- 60-130mph: 3.00 seconds - the fastest overall street car record and R35
- Standing 1/2 Mile : 214mph - the fastest R35 GT-R in a 1/2 mile
- 0-300kph: 10.15 seconds - the quickest overall street car record and R35
AMS would like to thank WannaGoFast for sponsoring this 1/2 event near our
home town and the following companies we work with to help improve the R35

Alpha Ronin GT-R vs BMW M5, Alpha 12 - 3.8L, Bugatti Veyron Vittesse: Goldrush Rally GR6
We had the opportunity to meet up with the Goldrush Rally crew as they made
their way through Chicago on the GR6 tour this year. One stop on their
itinerary was No Limit Raceway since it was conveniently located one their
route to Ohio. This was not the best of drag strip venues but good enough
for some fun, spirited passes with a great group of guys.
The track was not prepped for the event -- no dragging or spraying.
Nonetheless, we wanted to see how the Alpha Ronin GT-R would perform
against some highly desired luxury-performance cars. It was doubtful any
mods were done to the other supercars outside of the Alpha 12 GT-R 3.8L,
but each car made a great benchmark for comparison including a Bugatti Veyron Vitesse :)

Best GTR launch control reaction ever
Courage is strong in this beautiful GTR Pilot! She took the directions
given to her and just rolled with it!
I love the part where the fear takes over body control, which makes it hard
for her to think straight to let off the gas to make it stop. Hahahahaha
This is by far the best GTR Reaction I have ever seen with for GTR Launch
★ 2012 Nissan GT-R "The Hulk" by Severn Valley Motorsport HD (1080p) ★
Just when we thought we found our favorite customized GT-R in AMS
Performance's monster of a Nissan GT-R called the "Alpha Omega". Capable of
blasting along a quarter mile in just 8.97 seconds with a ridiculous top
speed of 216.9 mph, the Alpha Omega vaulted to the top of the list as far
as most awesome GT-R's are concerned. Well, now we have to reconsider
because UK tuner Severn Valley Motorsport has released their own souped up
GT-R, affectionately billed as "The Hulk."
One monster GT-R deserves another monster GT-R.
The Hulk, which has been painted in a metallic Imperial Green Pearlescent
finish, also comes with plenty of aerodynamic carbon components, including
the new front bumper, the GTC Carbon bonnet, carbon gas bonnet lifts, and a
host of carbon items - the rear diffusers, side skirts, and rear arch
extensions - from Wald International. The S2 Active split wing from
Aeromotion was also fitted into the Hulk, as are carbon race mirrors
mounted on pillars, carbon Exhaust
surround, front and rear side markers, LSD doors, L.E.D angle eye day light
running lights, and a new set of 20" Volks Racing light weight wheels
wrapped in Toyo R888 315/30/20 tires. Inside, the Hulk was treated to a
full carbon interior package, Cobra front carbon ultra light race seats,
Alcantara fabrics, a six-point roll cage that was custom built to SVM
specs, and Takata four-point race harnesses.
All that said, the real meal ticket of the Hulk is what lies under its
hood. With an extensive performance upgrade that includes fitting their own
4.2-liter SVM HULK Spec Forged Blueprinted Unit, SVM was able to Boost the street-legal GT-R's output all the
way up to 1,250 horsepower with a sick top
speed of 218 mph, which by the way, is a new top speed record! The record
was achieved at RAF Marham military base in Norfolk, UK and was confirmed
by Racelogic Vbox data.
