AMS-Tuned Nissan GT-R Runs Quarter Mile In 7.94 Seconds: Video
When it comes to producing insanely fast GT-Rs, AMS Performance is one of the biggest names in the game. The West Chicago-based tuner has broken countless records with its Alpha Omega shop car, and it offers a variety of power packages for customers looking to dominate the drag strip. Power levels range from the mild to the terrifying, with the top available build capable of over 2,000-horsepower and enough speed to outgun any stock production vehicle on the planet.
That means anyone can bring their R35 to AMS and walk away with a car that runs sevens. One such crazy was Gideon Chamdi, who showed up at the TX2K15 event at Royal Purple Raceway near Houston Texas to showcase what a 367 percent power increase looks like when properly applied the 1,320.
Chamdi finished the weekend with a best pass of 7.94 at 180 mph and a win in the GT-R 4 Class Drag event, not to mention a runner-up spot in the Unlimited Class Roll Race event.
While quite impressive, the fastest GT-R in attendance belonged to Extreme Turbo Systems from Vancouver Washington, which set a new world record when it ran a 7.49 at 189 mph.
Next year’s event is sure to see more drama as Nissan’s ultimate badass is tuned for even more power and faster quarter mile times. At this point, it’s anyone’s guess who will come out on top.
