AMS Alpha 12 R35 GT-R : firstname.lastname@example.org at the TX2K11 Nationals
A lack of good weather and open tracks around Chicago made the TX2K11 Nationals a great opportunity for us to bring Tim Sanders' Alpha 12 for some preliminary quarter mile track testing. During one of the test and tune sessions, Sander's gray Alpha 12 was able to fire off a email@example.com run. The car is not nearly dialed in to its full potential as of yet but still produced a V-Box verified 60-130 time of 3.58 seconds during that same run. Considering this was its first time to the track, the outcome was still very much a success.
We will have more updates on the Alpha 12 as the weather gets warmer and the tracks open up here in the Chicago area.
AMS Alpha 12: TX2K11 GT-R Dyno Competition 1st Place Finish
This past weekend, AMS brought out the gray Alpha 12, owned by Tim Sanders'
to the TX2K11 Nationals to run in the Dyno competition and quarter
mile at Lonestar Motorsports Park - the backyard of Hennessey Performance.
All awd vehicles ran on their Dyno Dynamics dynamometer. The
Alpha 12 produced a final AWHP number of 1069, taking first place without
having full traction on the rollers! The excessive wheel spin certainly
effected the readings and left a nice coating of tire residue on the Dyno platform.
Our record 9.1 quarter mile video will be up within the next few days so be
sure to check back soon!
