NHRA National Time Trials Phoenix 1-28-07. Doug Kalitta warming up his Top
Fuel Nitromethan powered car at the Firebird raceway in Phoenix, AZ during
the National time trials. I had to go to get my fix of Nitro cars. Check
out the sound on this one, lol.
Corvette c5 z06 blows up
I am posting this video cause you don't see the full version with the
reason for the explosion. The video is from http://SpdKilz.com
"This is a tribute video to my friend (and President of my car club,
Shocker Racing) James' 2001 Z06. He was at the track on 4-9-05 and we
think his fuel pooled in his intake manifold and BOOM. BTW, he was using a
window switch for his Nitrous, and had
the setup professionally installed. All that other BS you hear online is
just that. This was a technical malfunction within the system."
Audio(Green Day - Good Riddance) had to remove as apparently putting in
the video is copyright violation. I would like for it to be clear that this
video was never mine nor have I ever claimed possession of the video
material or audio material.
Discovery of the Nitrous / Methanol Drag Turbo Anti Lag System
After fighting with the installation of a larger turbo (B/W Airwerks S510/91mm), trying to find a
way to quickly spool this monsterous sucker with an automatic transmission
and a tight torque converter (in this paricular test, a 2,800 rpm torque
converter stall speed), we finally stumbled across a very interesting
tuning discovery. We've always used Nitrous to help quickly spool whatever turbo was on the car, but this is something
different. This is more than just simply injecting Nitrous.
This video shows the point where we had become aware that we had discovered
a new type of turbo ALS (anti lag
system) that we ended up developing further to become the Nitrous/Methanol Drag turbo Anti Lag System with Afterburner
Augmentation. Probably the most significant advancement of drag turbo anti lag technology in the past decade, not
to mention the advancement of the use of Nitrous with methyl alcohol (methanol) fuel.
Our spool assist valve was not used in these tests.
Through special engine configuration and tuning settings, oxygen is
chemically passed to the Exhaust
system without the need of having to cut the ignition to any of the
cylinders, thereby providing a simple, ULTRA smooth and quiet turbocharger anti lag, or quick spooling system.
This turns out to be even more effective than just using Nitrous injection in the more traditional manner
to spool the turbo. This allows a small
engine using a Nitrous/methanol mix to
spool a large efficient turbo with a
turbine side that will provide the much coveted crossover affect, opening
the door to more radical turbo camshaft
Nitrous/methanol mixes have come to be
known to provide sub standard hp levels for a given jet size rating.
Particularly when large shot sizes are being used. This system recovers all
of that lost rating in a very beneficial manner.
This system does not use the common pop and bang als method so often seen
in turbo drag racing today. It is much
easier on the engine, Exhaust system,
This new turbo anti lag system was
accomplished in spite of the fact that we are using a distributorless
wastespark ignition system. Or, maybe because of it?
I expect only the most adroit tuner to truly grasp the concept and
significance of this new system.
Warning: This type of turbocharger drag
anti lag system is for the most skillful tuners only.
