    AMS ALpha Omega GTR 7.98@186 press release and video

    Click here to enlarge



    After a successful night on July 11, 2013 running an 8.25 @ 185mph, we had broken the R35 world record by .35 seconds and 5mph but we still wanted more. Our night was cut short as a Mustang flipped end over end that knocked out a power transformer cutting all power to the track ending the night early. Thankfully the driver walked away from this terrifying crash and is set to make a full recovery.

    On Friday, we all had one thing on our mind; what would have happened had we been able to make that third pass? Speculating turned into preparing to head to the track on Saturday. Great Lakes Dragaway had the MOFOCO Bugfest and bracket racing scheduled but was allowing some test and tune in between. It was going to be extremely busy at the track but our eagerness to try for a 7 second pass got the best of us.

    As we drove into the pits on Saturday afternoon, the facility was packed. Everything from air cooled VW’s to bracket racing rail cars. The Density Altitude was far from favorable at 2,129ft, it was humid and the temperature was in the low 80's but that was the last thing on our minds.

    After a long wait in the staging lanes Ivan Phipps, driver and head technician behind Omega, was next to make a run. He pulled onto the track and did a short dry hop to clean the tires, crept in and lit the beams.

    Launching hard with the perfect amount of spin Ivan was off! As Omega hit second gear the car jerked towards the center of the track, but he was determined to stay in it. By the time he hit third gear the car was back on track and pulling hard.

    We were silent from that moment until the board lit up “7.984 @ 186.14mph.” We went wild! But it wasn’t just us going crazy, it was the whole crowd and the announcer who exclaimed “Welcome to the seven second club!”

    The highlight of the day was Ivan driving down the return lane not having any idea how fast he had gone. “I knew it was a pretty good pass, but not sure how good” Ivan said. We all lined up near the time slip booth to congratulate him and it wasn’t until Ivan made a hand gesture in the form of a ‘7’ as he rolled up and Eric Gaudi (AMS sales manager) confirming with a nod that Ivan realized he had done it. We had accomplished our goal to run the first 7 second pass in an R35 GT-R!

    In addition to this milestone achievement, Alpha Omega also posted some insane numbers and set some other records which were recorded by the onboard V-Box data recorder:

    0-60: 1.72 seconds
    60-130mph: 2.67 seconds (new overall record)
    0-300kph (186mph): 7.98 seconds (new overall record)
    100-150mph: 2.42 seconds (new overall record)
    30-130mph: 3.63 seconds

    What we are most proud about is Alpha Omega is still a street-legal, road going car. It can be driven anywhere. What's even more impressive is Chris Black, the evil genius behind the tuning of Omega has still not unleashed its full potential.

    Omega is the test bed for our GT-R line and uses mostly off the shelf Alpha components. We will be releasing details on the improvements to the car soon now that we've proven their capabilities. These include:

    Alpha Drag Suspension
    Alpha Upgraded CCM Brakes
    Alpha Drag Wheel and Tire Package

    We look forward to seeing other GT-R owners getting much quicker with these new products.

    We are excited to attempt an even deeper pass into the 7's in the future but for now it is time to celebrate the hard work the whole team put in to this accomplishment!

    AMS/Alpha Performance would like to thank the following sponsors for their generous support:
    Dodson Motorsport
    The Driveshaft Shop
    Exedy
    Sheptrans
    SPL Parts

    You don't build a car with absolutely absurd horsepower multiples of what it came with stock in order to build the fastest track car. This is a power exercise, not finesse.

    I was being sarcastic... Like I said this car is fast, and I'm not taking anything away from ams, but I think its stupid. Why take a gtr track monster and turn it into a straight line only car.

    i have personally watched this car in action. It was unbelieveable. This car launches so hard and accelerates so fast its mind blowing. Big props to AMS for the time and dedication they have put towards this car. They obviously had no intention to make this a road course car is was built to do one thing.. go stupidly fast in a straight line. The other thing is you walk up to this car and other than the huge drag radials on all 4 corners and the parachute on the back, It looks like a street car. Watching this car make 214mph standing half mile blasts makes your hair stand on end.

    Because it has turbos and you can. Most people buy these as a power platform for tuning.

    @Sticky yeah I know, but there are several other cars that you could get and mod cheaper that will run just as if not faster. I just hate seeing cars like the gtr,m3,911 etc. that are insane track cars be limited to the drag strip only.

    Well then there is more of a middle ground for that and one should stop at a certain power level. This is built to be a missile and I appreciate the work and engineering that went into it.

    we also have ALPHA 6,9,10 an 12 packages. The 9 has competed in several road racing events with phenominal results. In fact The Cobb Time attack car campaigned an ALPHA 9 package the year they won redline time attack.

    Switzer isn't running 7's...

    9's with a GTR anyone can do. 7's only AMS has done.
