Switzer R1K GT-R Smashes Into the 9 Second Club With a Record Mph Pass

October 14th, 2010



It’s the season for it, record breaking R35 GT-R quarter mile times that is. Switzer have joined in the fun after some serious R&D to see how their latest R1K package will perform at the drag strip.

“Damn well” was the result as they reeled off a 9.38 best ET at 155.29 mph. Enough to bump heads with the Alpha-10 GT-R by AMS Performance. They had the track to themselves so kept at it and took home a record for the day’s work for fastest mph for an R35 GT-R at 156.44 mph.

This Mph time is just a tad over 3 mph quicker than the AMS 9.33second ET recorded just the other day and shows the R1K certainly has the muscle to clock some faster times.

Massive effort to get this far from team Switzer so congratulations to them on the R1K’s performance and hope to see it out again breaking more records and dipping ever closer to the 8 second mark.

AMS Smash The 9 Second Barrier at TX2K10

March 21st, 2010

After beating out all the other competitors in the dyno competition, AMS have driven this SR850 tuned R35 GT-R to a worlds first 9 second ET at Lonestar Motorsports Park on their first run of the day!

They went on to run a string of 9 second passes with the best ET being 9.89 @ 145 even after hitting the rev limiter in second. The best mph of the day was 146.96 mph which you can see in the timeslip in the gallery below.

To get there, the car runs an AMS SR850 upgrade package which includes:

  • AMS upgraded bolt on turbo’s
  • Upgraded actuators
  • AMS 90mm downpipes
  • AMS 90mm Resonated midpipe
  • AMS 90mm exhaust
  • AMS Front mount intercooler
  • AMS 3″ intercooler piping
  • HKS bov’s
  • AMS Large MAF intake pipes
  • AMS fuel System upgrade
  • Cobb AccessPORT
  • AMS Custom Race gas map (unleaded 109 octane Race gas)

With these mods the car is putting 765awhp and 738 lbft of torque to the ground. Impressive stuff and big big numbers from bolt on upgraded turbos. What will we see when AMS’s custom cast manifolds and even bigger turbos get bolted up to Chuck’s car?

Congratulations to Frank who owns the world’s first 9 second GT-R and to AMS who built it!

Cheers to Chuck for the heads up on this. Also note, these pics are from previous runs.
