AMS Alpha Omega: World’s First 7 Second R35 GT-R Video

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 VWs 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. Read More

ALPHA OMEGA WORLD RECORD 8.25 @ 185MPH

ALPHA OMEGA went to the track last night (7/11/13) to reclaim the fastest and quickest GT-R title. Weve been tweaking and perfecting the car since the half mile even back in June where Omega took top honors with a 214mph half mile blast. OMEGAs initial shake down pass looked very smooth and controlled, when the board lit up, no one could believe their eyes, 8.303 @ 182.77 mph 3 tenths of a second and almost 8mph faster than we had ever been!

OMEGA wasnt finished, a few more quick adjustments and the car was ready for more. OMEGA rolled to the line, launched hard without drama, and clicked off a new GT-R world record: 8.259 @ 185.18mph, shaving another .044 seconds off the record and increasing the MPH record by 2.41! Read More
