Hey TRC fans! Thank you so much for all your support! Here is a video
brought to us by AMS Performance, hope you enjoy!

performance elite program can be found here)
We recently took Mike C's 1600whp Alpha 16 down to Texas for some
pre-delivery testing. The results were phenomenal!
First we visited Caddo Mill's Airfield, home of the Texas Invitational Roll
Race Competitions. There, Amar Sood, founder of the Texas Speed Syndicate
(TSS) set up the timing equipment for some testing. Although we were not
able to run a full half mile due to a short shut down area we were still
able to do a 0-200 mph blast in just 2297 feet on 20" street tires! Our top
speed of the day was 201.98 mph which set a new record for the Caddo Mills
Airfield for the fastest vehicle ever recorded. faster than any plane, motorcycle or car.
The next day, we headed to the Houston area to Royal Purple Raceway for a
special TSS drag event. Special projects technician Ivan Phipps first
shakedown pass netted an easy 8.66 @ 170mph. From there AMS lead tuner
Chris Black crept up on the tune to a 8.25 and then a 8.11 @ 176mph! Not
bad for a FULL WEIGHT GT-R. On the scales it tipped in at just over a stock
GT-R weight of 3855lbs. (4060 with driver).
The effortless progression to the 8.1 pass was enough to prove this Alpha
16 was capable of a 7 second pass - especially since the highest Boost setting was still left. However, Mike
would be the one to run it at a later date after he had enough seat time.
Although Mike is a seasoned road racer, roll racer and standing mile driver
this was going to be his first trip down the dragstrip in over 20 years!
Some practice runs were necessary and it was now time for Mike to run his
Alpha 16 GT-R down the dragstrip for the very first time. We handed the
keys to Mike for his first pass in his beast. With the car on its low Boost setting the AMS team gave him
some instructions on launching the ALPHA 16 and off he went laying down two
high 8 second passes of his own!
Mike's ALPHA 16 was the fastest car at the TSS drag event. This was an
achievement in itself as the day saw the likes of Boosted Ford GT's, slicked up fully caged race
spec Supras, back halved Camaros, Vipers and more. The car
logged some really impressive numbers as well through the v-box:
0-60 mph -- 1.63 seconds (new GTR record)
60-130 mph -- 2.98 seconds
100-150 mph -- 2.79 seconds
This latest pre-delivery testing shows how we can optimize a customer's
vehicle with our on-track support program. We plan on offering this program
to all customers that want a little more one on one time with our staff and
the car prior to taking delivery. Taking delivery of an ALPHA powered car
is a remarkable experience and we feel this new program will make the
experience that much better.

Thank you to The Texas Speed Syndicate for the use of the airfield and for
the invitation to your drag event. Of course thank you to Mike C for
choosing AMS for your big power needs and for the opportunity to show you
what a GT-R can do.
Congratulations are also in order. With Mike's back-to-back 8 second
passes, he is now an inducted member of AMS' Alpha Elite Program!
The proper way to race a GTR
After seeing countless comments on our channel about "GTRs not taking skill
to drive" and "They're just computers on wheels", we decided to put this
video together to show everyone how hard it is to drive a GTR! ;-)
Junkyard Turbo Swap! Chevy-Powered 1971 Datsun 240Z Autocross Thrash - Roadkill Ep. 26
What do you get when you cross a rusted 1971 Datsun 240Z with a Chevy 4.3L
V6 and a turbo from a Ford Power Stroke
Diesel? The Rotsun! During Roadkill Episode 25, Freiburger and Finnegan
revived the Rotsun expecting it to dominate in the 9-car autocross showdown
of previous Roadkill project cars. It also needed to beat a 2014 Kia Rio 5,
but failed to do so with the Rotsun shamefully breaking down before
completing a decent lap. So in this episode: revenge. After swapping in the
mismatched turbo and making nearly 400
rear-wheel horsepower, the guys head to
the autocross at the Goodguys 5th Spring Nationals in Scottsdale, Arizona
and mingle with fans on their way to a rematch with that dastardly Kia.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

Compact Brisbane Jamboree.
Honda S600 Monster - 2JZ turbo powered!
Arguably the biggest eye opener at Jamboree 2012 was Phil Penny's JESUS
Honda S600 complete with a Toyota 2JZ engine conversion. With no where else
to fit, the huge turbocharger hanging
out of the bonnet was a giveway something was lurking beneath!
Over the year's Phil's Honda has seen various colour changes and engine
combinations used. The first time out with this Toyota six cylinder setup
saw Phil run quicker as the event went on going a very very easy
S13 '89 2JZ TEST DRIVE - ITS Racing
First test drive of S13 1989 2JZ powered
Song : Blue Foundation - Eyes On Fire (Zeds Dead Remix)
Why a 2JZ Engine ?
2JZ is a favorite and I do not regret my choice because my 2JZ has a
story. My 1st 2JZ was given to Daigo Saito during the King of Europe Event
@ Circuit Parcmotor Castelloli (Spain) because he broke his engine.
When I gave to Daigo Saito my engine. It wasn't mounted yet so it wasn't
a problem and I didn't hesitate to give it to him :D it would have been a
huge mistake not to do.
And later Wise Square gave me another 2JZ to complete my S13, so what else
