Its now raining in Houston, Texas, but AMS got a chance to run their 1600 wheel horsepower Alpha Omega Nissan GT-R, with Ivan "The Terrible" at the helm. Yesterday they lost the front lip/bumper twice during 170mph passes. With a borrowed front lip and bumper on the car, they lowered the Nissan GT-R 1/4 record to 8.626@173 mph with ONLY 35 psi of boost. The quick pass from yesterday, the car moved around a bit on the strip, check out the video below.
After the rain let up, they did a last pass, but had too much wheelspin. Next week they are competing in the Texas Mile.First pass of the day with boost still at 35psi8.6263 @ 173.8mph1.533 60 foot1/8 mph 135.9960 - 130 ........ 3.13 seconds!!!!!!!!!!100 - 150.......2.82 seconds
