AMS Alpha Omega GT-R at TX2K12: 8.62@173.81mph 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. SATURDAY 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 8.63@172.15mph 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. SUNDAY 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 8.62@173.81mph -- 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. Saturday 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 8.78@166.54mph 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. Sunday 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: Dodson Motorsport The Driveshaft Shop Exedy Sheptrans SPL Parts

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.

Lamborghini Murcielago vs. Nissan GT-R Street Race
Facebook http://on.fb.me/MvsGTR | Tweet! http://bit.ly/GTRvsM 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 :) FOLLOW ME: Facebook: http://on.fb.me/RHPage Twitter: http://bit.ly/RHTweets Razzi: http://razzi.me/Robert Instagram: @RobertHimler
