AMS Performance Alpha 10 Nissan GT-R Sets New World Record

After months of development and rigorous testing on the dyno and street, the AMS Performance Alpha 10 Nissan GT-R, owned by AMS customer Tim Sanders, made its first track debut a little over a week ago at Great Lakes Dragway in Union Grove, WI. Tim flew in from his hometown in Florida along with friend, Chuck Hannold, of NAGTROC.ORG with the full intention of seeing his Alpha 10 smash the previous GT-R quarter mile record of 9.62 @ 150mph and that it did!

The honors of piloting the Alpha 10 GT-R were given to one of the leading builders of R35 GT-R transmissions, John Shepherd of, who made three passes down the track. The first pass was a ½ pass to make sure the launch was good and that track conditions were ok. Wheel hop in the colder weather was a problem but John was optimistic about its potential times that night. The record was set on the second pass with a 9.52 @ 150mph, and after only a few minutes of celebration and deliberation by Sanders, Shepherd and the AMS team, the decision was made to run the GT-R one more time for an even better time. The third and last pass shaved almost two-tenths of a second off the last pass bringing the new world record down to 9.33 @ 153mph!

AMS has composed a video of the record breaking event along with another video of owner Tim Sanders and Chuck Hannold driving his Alpha 10 GT-R on the street the morning after. This is what any customer GT-R customer can expect from AMS Performance and the Alpha 10 GT-R Package!

The Alpha 10 is part of the Alpha-Series line of premium performance upgrade packages manufactured by AMS Performance of West Chicago, IL and is the second most powerful upgrade for the Nissan R35 GT-R manufactured by AMS (next to the Alpha 12 currently under testing). The Alpha 10 utilizes the AMS Nissan GT-R Turbo Kit to produce an astounding 1100bh p.

For those interested, the Alpha 10 Package will soon be available for sale to the public. Features of the Alpha 10 include OEM fitment, reliability and quality, stock-like spool, responsiveness and driveability – all with enough power to make the R35 GT-R the ultimate full-weight street car.
