Dyno Nova Twin Turbo
This is another 417 car that spent some time on my Dyno. With the right fuel pump it made the top HP on the power tour! Mostly part throttle in these videos. You can spot the issue on the Dyno screen.

Chevy 383 in a '71 Nova with twin Precision T-61 turbos, the parts list is in the video. The Intercooler is not hooked into the intake system in the video for simplicity reasons. Enjoy!
KillaCycle New Record 7.86 @ 169 MPH Bandimere Speedway NEDRA event
Two new Electric Vehicle World Records in one Run!
Here is some video of the Killacycle and The ElectroCat. The Killacycle is the electric motorcycle that I designed and built the Battery Management System for. Below is some text that bike owner, Bill Dube' wrote describing the event:
The KillaCycle has done it again. We broke the _overall_ NEDRA record for electric's in the 1/4 mile. The KillaCycle is the very fastest and quickest EV of any sort in the 1/4 mile.
It was a beautiful day at Bandimere Speedway and, as always, the track conditions were perfect.
The A123Systems battery propelled us into the recordbooks once again. A123Systems stock raced ahead of the pack on the NASDAQ on Thursday, and their batteries put us _farther_ ahead of the pack today.
I believe we posted the lowest ET (best time) for any vehicle at the track today at Bandimere. There was a very well-attended bracket race going on, and I think the best ET of any of these powerful- purpose-built interal combustion vehciles was in the low 8's.
In the left lane is Eva Hakansson on her ElectroCat, 100% street-legal in both the USA and Sweden, set the open NEDRA record for a 48 volt street-legal motorcycle; 13.249 @ 52.97 MPH. (She selected the 1/8th mile record, even though her 1/4 mile time was also new record.)
Jet Car Blows up at Bandimere
At the night of Fire and Thunder (May 16, 2009) at Bandimere Speedway in Morrison, Colorado, one of the jet engine cars was preparing to make its' second run down the drag strip when it had a slight problem as you'll see. It's the green car on the left side of the screen. The other car was already primed to go, so they let it make its run anyway.
