This is a short video dedicated to the forgotten Shelby cars and their turbocharged Mopar siblings.
The photos were taken by me at the annual SDAC convention, that was held in Chicagoland this year.
For more information on these 80's pocket rockets head over to www.turbo-mopar.com
Note: The beginning dialogue is Shelby talking about a Supercharged Charger; I couldn't seem to find some useable audio that pertained to the use of the turbochargers in the numbered cars that followed... But it still has its merits.
Thanks for watching!
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

NEVER GIVE UP
This video is dedicated to all those guys who said a 4 cylinder will never do a wheelie :) Here you go.
This is a promotional/compilation video I shot and edited for the Shelby Dodge Auto Club covering the annual convention that took place in June. It was a blast, and highly recommend that anyone who is a fan of turbo cars come out to check out these little pioneers of FWD sport compacts. BIG THANK YOU to all that made it out this year and for letting me attach GoPro's everywhere!
