New Records : 9.10@159 mph : 3.58 seconds 60 - 130 mph

AMS brought several Nissan GT-Rs to the Texas 2K11 event, and one of their Alpha 12 combinations set a few new records. Lowering their previous best 9.19 quarter mile ET to a 9.10 time with John Shepherd at the wheel. The 60 foot time was a 1.65. 0-60 is 2.6  seconds with wheelspin and some wheelhop. They also bettered the 60-130 time to 3.58 seconds. That is three and a half seconds, to go from sixty miles per hour, to one hundred and thirty miles per hour. From 100-150 mph, the car did 3.49 seconds.  Currently they have run into a limiting factor with the factory ECU with the Cobb tuning. This is going to be something that will be worked on in the coming months.

At this point we have eclipsed what is currently possible with the stock ECU using only a COBB AP for tuning. Turning up the power further is not currently possible due to a lack of control of the stock ECU's load strategy.
