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
This is our 24 cylinder Detroit that we are putting in a custom 359
Peterbilt. It will use an Allison Transmission, and the engine will be in
the front of the truck. We are starting off with 40 foot 4" X 14" rectangle
rails, not sure how long it will end up being.
Diesel powered rail
This is a 285" spitzer with a 12 valve cummins in it. Pretty mild tune, Its
currentley in the 5`s
Diesel Funny car
This thing will eventually top 200 mph. I think its less than a year old
and they are still perfecting it. Its a Top Fuel funny car chassis and
body with a Cummins diesel engine with turbo AND Nitrous. The RPMs they can turn are just amazing.
Are You Kidding Me?
Jimmy Smith puts down a blazing fast pass at Bandimere Speedway's 1/4 mile
track. This truck was running in the street modified 4WD class. Like the
announcer says, "Are you kidding me??"
Cummins S10 vs. Duramax Camaro
Brandon's Cummins S10 drag racing at Scheid Diesel's eXtravaganza 2009.
Round #2 rematch put me up against the same first gen Duramax powered Camaro Z28. I turned the
Nitrous on for this pass and hurt
traction even more.
