AMS Alpha 12 R35 GT-R : 9.1@159.97 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 9.1@159.97 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.

Bugatti Veyron vs. Switzer Nissan GT-R (ORIGINAL)
(Sorry I don't know all three of the songs used except for "Wolfmother - Woman" at the 2:30 mark and "Apache In Marrakech" at the .30 second mark.) Two races take place between a Nissan GT-R which left the mighty Veyron eating it's dust early on in the first race. I have a theory that the GT-R could have only gone that fast because it was driven by Chuck Norris:P





DSPORT 2012 Nissan GT-R Preview
DSPORT Magazine: 2012 Nissan GT-R If you own a Porsche 911 turbo, Corvette ZR1, R32/R33/R34 Skyline GT-R or just about any of the six-figure European exotics, prepare to be pissed off. Japan's reigning mass-production supercar, just got better. How much better? Let's just say that even owners of '09, '10 and '11 GT-Rs are likely to be envious of the major improvements from the minor-change 2012 Nissan GT-R. Kazutoshi Mizuno, the Chief Vehicle Engineer and Chief Vehicle Specialist for the R35 GT-R, said it would take about three years to fulfill the promise of making the R35 GT-R a worldclass supercar after the first R35s rolled off the assembly line in late 2007. With the 2012 Nissan GT-R, Mizuno-san has lived up to his promise with the 2012 Nissan GT-R. For the special-invitation long-lead on the 2012 Nissan GT-R, Nissan outdid itself by selecting the most incredible driving routes ever for a street evaluation. Starting from the coast and blazing through the canyons of Central California we experienced a smorgasbord of road types. There was everything from wide-open mile-long straights to the edge-of-the-cliff, "ohshit- we're-going-too-fast" off-camber drop outs. Despite the significant weight of the GT-R, it negotiated any challenge pointed in its way. The additional power and improved power curve delivered more reactive throttle response. In the earlier R35 GT-Rs, the lag of the drive-by-wire controls made the vehicle respond as if the control system had overdosed on cold medicine. With the 2012 GT-R, the driver-to-vehicle connection is now completely online. Improved steering response, improved gear-selection in the AUTO mode and increased brake response were all evident on the road to the racetrack. If you miss that lag in throttle response, a simple swap to the new "SAVE" mode delivers a noticeable reduction to improve fuel efficiency. Finally, the difference in the "COMFORT" mode setting between the 2011 and 2012 GT-R was noticeable with the 2012 doing a much better job of smoothing the bumps.
