Banks Top Diesel Dragster: NHRDA Nationals
On March 6th, 2010 the Banks crew tested out the rail's new "Stroker" 427 cu. in., twin-turbo 7.0L Duramax engine at the NHRDA Nationals in Wittmann, Arizona. The numbers for this trip out were 7.670 @173.54. We were a little faster back in April 2009 when we ran 7.17 @ 181.08. We've also run a best trap speed of 190MPH with the car on a separate test session. All those runs were with our twin-turbo'd Duramax, and now we're getting set to hit the track with a supercharged configuration. Stay tuned for that! More info at www.bankspower.com/topdieseldragster
01 Duramax with something seriously wrong!
***Before you comment trying to argue that it's not the injectors causing this, or it's not fuel its coolant, or anything else. It was 100% positively the injectors. They were stuck open. We changed them out and the truck is running 100% strong again, no smoke.***
Tons of fuel collecting in the Exhaust!! It was literally filling the stacks up with fuel so we drilled a small drain hole in the bottom. All the white smoke is vaporized fuel! If you held your hand to it it would be dripping wet. We're thinking a stuck injector. Somehow no fuel was getting into the oil though. lol
