    Please Note: the speedo, tach and digital speedo are not able to keep up with the rate of acceleration, that is why the digital speedo only gets to 178mph!

    On July 13 2013 AMS/Alpha Performance made history, the Alpha Omega became the first R35 GT-R to run a 7 second 1/4 mile pass, officially making us home of the first 9, 8 and 7 second R35 GT-R!

    This came just two days after Omega reclaimed the ET and trap speed records (8.25 @ 185mph) and was accomplished on the first and only pass Omega made that day. The team arrived at the track, unloaded the trailer, prepped the car and made a pass - Ivan Launched the car hard, it had a bit of wheelspin and drifted towards the centerline, Ivan powered through it and got it under control crossing the beams at 7.984 @ 186.14mph, besting our Thursday night record setting run.

    A HUGE thank you goes out to our sponsors: Shep Trans, SPL Parts, Exedy, The Driveshaft Shop and Dodson Motorsports — WE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DO THIS WITHOUT YOU!!

    Enjoy the vid, we have a lot more to post in the coming days!

    ALPHA OMEGA went to the track 7/11/13 to reclaim the fastest and quickest GT-R title. We’ve 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. OMEGA’s 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 wasn’t 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, this is the dash cam of that pass!

    AMS/Alpha Performance would like to thank Dodson Motorsports, The Driveshaft Shop, Exedy, Shep Trans and SPL Parts, we could not have done this without you!
