Jay Leno's tank car gets Banks turbos
Here's Jay Leno's infamous "tank car" in the race shop at Gale Banks
Engineering. The Korean-War-era M47 Patton tank engine had 810 hp when it
came to Banks -- it left with 1600 hp (and according to Jay, the fuel
economy is even better). See bankspower.com for the full story.
huge, massive, EPIC engine fail ! unbelievable damage
The by far most epic engine fail I've ever seen. The whole engine is almost
completely destroyed and there won't be any chance to repair that piece of
trash that it is after that. The destruction starts @ 0:46
Have fun !
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.
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

Team Thailand Diesel Drag - 8.2 @ 164mph [HD]
ENNIS TEXAS SEPTEMBER 28TH 2013 - "Team Thailand" as they are called here
in the USA took their amazing Isuzu D-Max Drag Truck down the Texas
Motorplex 1/4 Mile in Ennis. The turbo
Diesel 4Cylinder Engine propelled the vehicle down the track at a time of
8.2 at 164mph.
This is the best ever time for this team, this truck, and for any diesel in
Thailand. The nation of Thailand is extremely proud of this team and truck,
and it has been a real honor of mine to work with them this weekend.
The team honored their King with stickers all over the truck saying "LONG
LIVE THE KING" (sorry Elvis, not you buddy). The driver also prayed with
flowers outside of the truck, showing it respect and honor.. and then raced
with the flowers INSIDE of the truck strapped to the roll cage with zip
The team is confident that they can run a 7.X time, but the track was
closed for a rain delay which ended their shot today. They want to tray
again Sunday. Stay tuned!
