Holy fuck that's a lot faster then the previous record! Think it's got 4 more tenths in it?
I also assume they're making north of 1000whp?
AMS needs to get back on the site a bit more. I miss their updates.
Thank you everyone for all the support. Tim is one happy camper! This is by no means a one trick pony either. Tim's car really does drive every bit like a stock car...it just induces premature bowel movements lol.
We are having a few drinks right now to celebrate and tomorrow we will start on the video. In regards to the turbos these are the smaller of the two options available. The bigger being the alpha 12 that chucks car will be getting.
As far as tranny mods it's a pro max clutch ppg 1st gear Dodson clips, some sheperd magic and that's about it. Tonight the car was
Making 900whp on our mustang dyno. Keep in mind on our alpha 9 car on pump this dyno was reading 650whp and that car ran a 10.1
The car has more in it as the boost was about 28 psi and the fuel was ms109 unleaded race gas. This was the type of tune we can deliver to any alpha 10 customer and have it be very reliable.
Thanks again and everyone have a great night...we sure did
I want to take this time to thank Mr John Shepherd. This was not planned in any way. We had several transmissions that needed to come back to the shop and rather than paying to ship them John offered to drive them down for us and take a look at a couple cars while he was here. He was not here more than an hour when the question "want to go to the track?" was raised. He hopped in Tim's car with NO experience and did a great job.
I really cannot speak enough about the mild manners of this car when driving around. John himself said "that thing drives so smooth, its like stock" It really is by every definition of the word a FULL BLOWN STREET CAR!
As far as the reason we got kicked out... lol
Based on NHRA rules this car needs the following:
Full Roll cage
Full fire suit
battery cut off
four point harness
and the best part....... it now needs a PARACHUTE!!
Well this is a street car so we were not about to toss all that in it. Needless to say after two consecutive mid 9 second passes with only a helmet and a fire jacket as safety equipment we were kindly asked to pack it up for the day.
Spool was not a problem at ALL with Tim's car. It lights them up all the way through second on a track that was SATURATED with VHT.
on a side note we are doing some video work now and rich just showed me the GO pro HD shot of the dash during the run. In the words of VegasGTR... "HOLY SHITBALLS" The speedo needle just shoots around the cluster!!!
