This past Tuesday transmission guru John Shepherd took his ALPHA 12 powered GT-R to the track for some software testing. Thanks to the new transmission components and software refinements John was finally able to show what his car was capable of. Not only did John break the record for any ALPHA 12 but he broke the overall ET record for ANY R35 GT-R beating the longstanding time of our shop ALPHA OMEGA GT-R set back in March of 2012. Running 5 back to back 8 second passes, John was able to clip off an 8.61@170mph setting a new R35 GT-R ET record!  What’s even more impressive is this comes just a little over a week after his 200mph run at the Wanna Go Fast ½ Mile Challenge!!

John Shepherd’s car was 100% assembled by himself and has some top notch components on it. John pulled many of his parts from the ALPHA Catalog running:

ALPHA Performance 12 Turbo Kit

ALPHA Performance Race Front Mount Intercooler Kit

ALPHA Performance Induction Kit

ALPHA Performance Race CNC Cylinder Heads

ALPHA Performance ALPHA Camshafts

We would like to congratulate John and his crew for putting together one hell of a car and to Boyan at Syvecs USA for dialing it in with the new software changes to allow for not only a great calibration but phenomenal shifting.  We are excited to see these advancements in software in addition to the new Dodson Performance Anti Surge Kit that kept the transmission line pressure right where it needs to be.  Look out for R35 GT-R’s getting even faster in the near future!
