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.

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!





AMS ALPHA 12 Makes History - World's FIRST 8 Second R35 GT-R
History has been made! On Tuesday July 26th our AMS ALPHA 12 GT-R went back to the track with a little more favorable weather conditions. The result was the World's First 8 Second R35 GT-R! Even with a 1.668 60 foot time, the ALPHA 12 driven by our own Special Projects Technician, Ivan Phipps, went 8.975@169.49 mph! 60 foot 1.668 330ft 4.166 1/8th mile 6.042 1/8 mph 132.74 1000ft 7.634 1/4 8.975 1/4 mph 169.49 In addition the 60-130 time record was broken again with a 3.34 second blast from 60-130mph!! This makes the AMS Alpha 12 GT-R the fastest recorded street car to date from 60-130 mph!!! Not bad for a true street car with air conditioning and all the other amenities of a GTR. You can drive this car to the store or across the country! Of course all of our sponsors, without your support this would of been much more difficult. Your parts put us over the top!





AMS Alpha 12 GT-R: Full Weight 8 Second Street Car
Another AMS R35 GT-R completes an 8 second 1/4 mile pass! This particular GT-R is owned by our dear friend and customer, Tim Sanders. Our fans should know that Tim has been a part of the Alpha GT-R program since its early stages of development. In fact, without his passion and support of the R35 GT-R and the Alpha GT-R program, neither would be as far as they are today in terms of performance. All of us at AMS sincerely thank you, Tim Sanders, for being a part of our efforts with the R35 GT-R! On July 12, 2012, Sanders' R35 GT-R ran an 8.92@163.9mph pass on an Alpha 12 GT-R race fuel map. This is a typical Alpha 12 setting producing 1500 horsepower / 1100 ft-lbs of torque. On 93 octane, it produces 1150 horsepower / 950 ft-lbs torque. What makes this pass so remarkable is that Tim's car is a full weight R35 GT-R with full interior and nothing removed. This pass is indicative of what an AMS Alpha 12 GT-R owner can do in the 1/4 mile. 1/4 Mile statistics: 60ft 1.558 330ft 4.006 1/8 5.992@129.81 1000ft 7.543 1/4 8.92@163.9mph Mr Sanders wishes to thank his sponsors: Dodson Motorsport Exedy Pfitzner Performance Gearboxes (PPG) ShepTrans Syvecs Powertrain Control





TX2K11 S14 in car Fun Runs
S14 in car... RB26DETT PT6765 Supporting Mods (Tomei / Trust / Apexi / HKS) Still slow, only at 18lbs during these runs. Will be at 28 next year with more motor work. Overall, great time with good people except the stupid fucking Sentra from Friday night that kept blocking people/getting in the way and the first red Supra on Saturday from Louisiana that tried to cheese his way into a victory. Wanted to keep going, but race gas is expensive and we just went through two full tanks the whole weekend. This is a script written and directed by itsguyguy, no cars were harmed in the filming of this video except that stupid red Supra from Louisiana, he got murdered.
