    Edit:

    Ok now that I have a little more time to post and not using Tim sanders I-pad track-side let me get a little more in depth.

    First there are so many people to thank for this and I REALLY hope I do not forget anyone.

    Of course all of our sponsors, without your support this would of been much more difficult. Your parts put us over the top!

    Cobb Tuning
    Darton Sleeves
    Dodson motorsport
    Exedy Clutch
    Ferrea Racing components
    Injector Dynamics
    JE Pistons
    Kelford Cams
    Sheptrans.com


    I want to give a special thank you to Tim Sanders, while it wasn't your car this run embodied your spirit. Without your passion for pushing the envelope we would not of had the ability to do it. Everyone here at the shop is grateful for your contributions to the GT-R community. Having you track-side while we broke the record meant more than you will ever know. You are and always will be family here before a customer.

    Thank you to EVERYONE here at AMS! We are 30 plus strong and EVERYONE had a hand in making this happen. From Chris tuning the car and spending countless hours on the dyno to Tim Salefski building the strongest damn GT-R engine I have ever seen. Lets not forget the engineers and fabricators for making quite possibly the best damn parts on the planet! Ivan gets the gold star award though. Not only did he build the car he put his ass in the rocket and rode it down to an 8 second pass. When you see the video you will understand why I said "rode" Click here to enlarge

    Andew Hadeed and Habib from Rocket Science racing in Antigua. Traction was BAD but with there slightly larger M&H drag radials it proved to be JUUUUUUUUUUUST enough to help us crack that 8 second barrier.

    Lastly and most importantly all of our GT-R customers. We have been at this game for 10 years now building performance cars. NEVER have we been embraced by a community so well. I really hope everyone appreciates how great this site is and how amazing this community is as a whole. Your constantly motivated us to be better and your unyielding faith is what drives us every day to build the best cars and parts that we can. THANK YOU!

    And we are not done yet Click here to enlarge

    Very nice numbers! I've got to get one of these When I'm done with my drag car. Keep up the good work. With a better 60ft there are much lower times on that motor.

    It's still a soul-less robot from the future sent back in time to destroy the automotive industry.

    Skylines have been doing this for 15 years! And what's crazy is that the real strength of this car is it's handling. It is a very fast car in a straight line stock but it is almost unbeatable by any car on a road course.

    My point is that this car has an unbelievable pedigree and has been one of the worlds top supercars for a solid 20 years now and certainly one of the best if not the best bang/buck cars around. I also wanted to point out that it's not just a one dimensional car that simply goes fast in a straight line. For example, you can get a mustang to these speeds for a hell of alot less $ than this but it's no where near in terms of handling and road worthiness. If you saw one of the UGR lambo threads on here I said at this point I would take one of these AMS GTR's over the TT gallardo as crazy as that may sound.

    Edit: people in the US tend to forget the above since we never got the skyline here before but it's important to remember the record for an awd skyline is 7.61 so I believe there is still alot more left in this car and once they get the launch squared away we will see even more incredible times.

    I'm sure it's yes to both GG. He mentioned Dodson and they offer built trans so it's a safe bet.

    Can't wait till my buddy get's his back from the motor build. He's on the alpha9 kit as of now but i keep busting his balls to get the 12 while it's down. Alpha12 on the street has to be amazing.
