Many of your read the very enjoyable write up Davin did on the 2000 mile road trip with the AMS ALPHA 9 GT-R back in November. http://www.nagtroc.o...showtopic=46467

That trip saw all kind of road conditions, the SEMA show in Las Vegas and at the end of this journey was the Super Lap Battle finals at Buttonwillow race way in California. There the President of AMS Performance Martin Musial drove AMS to a 1, 2 finish in the street class with our Shop 900X package EVO X and ALPHA 9 powered GT-R. The EVO edged the GT-R out by a fraction of time. It wasn't quite a fair fight as the GT-R did not have the suspension setup to optimize performance due to time constraints unlike the AMS EVO X. Despite some slight (lol) over-steering problems the ALPHA 9 package performed GREAT! With some more suspension setup behind the JRZ RS pros we are sure our EVO Would be sitting in the second spot and the GT-R would be in its rightful place on top!

This really was a testament to the longevity and abuse the ALPHA 9 package can take. 2000 miles of our own Chuck and Davin being very unforgiving to the car and a full out time attack event with a podium finish to cap it all off :cheers:

Enjoy the video and pay attention to the speedo overlay on the straights :irock: :irock: :OMG:

Also please note Martin having some fun with the ALPHA 9 during the credits....His hands are pretty quick on the wheel hahahaha

That thing has incredible acceleration. My apex speed is about the same coming onto the front straight, but that car is 10 mph faster at the end of the straight! That is huge!

Different cars in my opinion, you would never see the COBB GT-R do a 2k mile road trip. COBB car is 100% purpose built for track use only, so even though there is a lot of mods to the Alpha 9 car, they are different beasts.

I would imagine the Cobb car would be quicker on all accounts. A whole lot lighter and what 1000 hp? Certainly faster around the track.

The question was...which is quicker :) Do people know how to read and comprehend?

The Cobb GT-R has put down a faster lap time. At Redline Time Attack last year they did a 1:48.xxx on this track (same configuration).

The Cobb car is quicker for sure, it's a dedicated race car running on race compound tires. There is a huge difference in the cars. The Cobb car is running the same ALpha 9 turbo package as on our street car but we're talking massive weight difference, race tires, suspension development, aero, etc. A race tire on this track would have probably been worth about 3-5 seconds (depending on tire) on our street car for sure.
