World Challenge GT-R powered by AMS

"A majority of our business here at AMS is building completely prepared race cars for our customers. We campaign our own very successful race team and based on those efforts/merrits we are able to provide very capable and proven race cars to our customers.

A while back we had a couple of customers work with us to build two very nice EVO track cars:
A blue EVO IX which had a very extensive build:
and A silver EVO X that got much of the same treatment:

Well these two are at it again and this time they want to build a GT-R. Just like the two EVO's prior they went and bought a BRAND NEW GT-R from the dealer and sent it over to us to work our magic. This car came to us with a whopping 74 miles on it.

Today we began the tear down process on this car. The slated parts lists has some mild but effective power upgrades but just AMAZING suspension, brake and chassis work!

We plan on doing a custom exhaust to the car to optimize weight savings along with some trans cooling and a Custom AMS tuned Cobb AP to increase the power.

That is where the easy stuff ends. Along with that a very comprehensive Roll cage and suspension and brake setup will go into the car. The best of the best will be used on this build. Look for some REALLY unique and professional grade components to make their way into this car. We really hope to break some new ground in the GT-R world with this build and bring some great suspension, weight reduction and chassis ideas to the GT-R community."

I Have A Crush

Not sure who she is, but every since I saw Heavy D's "Nothin' But Love" video from back in the day, I fell in love with this girl. Makes me want to go to New York and find her hahahaha.

R35 GT-R Complete File

A little birdie came by and gave me a treat.
It's a "mook" (book quality magazine) about the R35 GT-R that has just been translated to English and will be available next month as an eBook for PC's, Macs and the iPad.

Verizon CDMA iPhone 4

This is the first CDMA a iPhone that is now on the Verizon netwok which will launch next month. The new CDMA iPhone will cost $199.99 for a 16GB, $299 for a 32GB with a 2 year contract.
The only thing that sucks is that the iPhone is going to run off Verizon's old 3G network instead of their newly launched 4G-LTE network. "The reason why it's not a LTE phone is because the first-generation LTE chipsets force compromises Apple doesn't want to make, but Verizon customers want an iPhone now." - Tim Cook
You are able to use the "HotSpot" feature to connect your phone to a laptop and use it to push data across, but phone is still kind of useless since you can't do voice and data at the same time.

To sum it all up, Verizon can't seem to leave the past behind and move forward with better technology. I'm going to stay with AT&T.
