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.

tuned Nissan GTR with over 1200 HP!
This was a special presentation of that infamous car for the members of the
GTROC (www.gtroc.org) during the GTROC Japan Tour 2012.
The TRUST company was so kind to invite the GTROC to come and visit the
TRUST facility and have a first hand look at the unbelievable GTR 35RX
Just a few days after we stood around the car at the Tokyo Auto Salon we
had this great opportunity to watch the car exclusively...but not only were
we allowed to watch at every detail, no we were even invited to take a seat
in the ultra tight race seat and hit the throttle of that monster.
Thank you very much TRUST/ GReddy!

Lamborghini Murcielago vs. Nissan GT-R Street Race

READ: The other day in Mexico - Me and Amy lined up my Lamborghini
Murcielago (Full Larini Exhaust) vs.
the Nissan GT-R Premium (Cobb Y-Pipe & AccessPort). I was very surprised by
the outcome! I thought it'd be the exact opposite...the GT-R would pull
down low then the Murcielago at higher speeds, but not so.
In terms of production quality I think this is probably one of my best
videos to date. If you enjoyed it definitely let me know so I can create
more like it :)
