Alpha Omega Resets GT-R ¼ Mile Record: 7.70@186mph

The AMS Alpha Omega Nissan GT-R resets the GT-R record with a 7.70@186 mph pass. They have gone as fast as 190 mph in the quarter, so there is still some more in it. Check out the video below.

On the heels of our win at the Texas Speed Syndicate (TSS) Texas Invitational (TI) event, we decided to make the most of our 1,000+ mile trip to Texas. The tracks in Chicago had already starting degrading with the cooler weather. The opportunity to run at a well prepped track in Texas might be the last chance we would get to turn Omega loose. 

GT-R Open House at DSport Magazine

DSport Magazine had an open house at their facility October 12th. Great gathering of Nissan Skyline GT-R,'s, and Nissan GT-R's. It is always good to see everyone. The DSport R33 laid it down on the dyno putting 1156 horsepower to the ground. Their current setup is a 2.6, with twin RX-6 turbos, at 40 psi on E85 fuel.  Check out the video. 


Roy loves coming out to these events. Thanks for attending.

AMS GT-R Takes Down THREE 2,000hp Lambo's Video

Should we say its the little V-6 that could? I don't think a 3.8 liter 2,000 hp VR38DETT would be considered "small".

The 2,000hp Alpha Omega GT-R piloted by Ivan Phipps claims the overall King of the Streets Texas Invitational Title and becomes one of the most deserving cars of the "Lambo Killer" title people like to throw around after these races.

Taking down some of the FASTEST cars in the "street car / street" roll racing world as they climbed the brackets of a 42 car roll race including 2000hp Heffner & UGR Twin Turbo Lambo's, 1500-1600hp Twin Turbo Vipers and an 1100hp Supra!

Check out this 1320 Video from the Texas Invitational Roll Race. AMS's Alpha Omega GT-R had everyone covered.  I don't think the GT-R vs Twin Turbo Lambo race is over. I feel the Lambos come back with 2500 horsepower next year.
