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!

"HYPER"MAX! 6 SEC TRIPLE TURBO DIESEL DRAGSTER! RT 66 FRIDAY NIGHT!
Met these guys back in April of '12 and am still am taken back by the massive size of the DT466 International Diesel sporting 3 Hypermax turbos, Lenco trans, Strange Rearend and the ingenuity to put it all together in a dragster and make it work. Step forward to September '15 with the guys redesigning the turbo mounting setup and out for first time with the new setup. First pass off the trailer was a successful 7.06@193.77mph. Still sorting out the clutch the guys made an adjustment and in the second night pass managed to get into the 6's, although way down on mph with a 6.99@177.42mph. It's still a work in progress, as the dragster has been over 200mph in low 6's with the previous setup. Look for this diesel powered dragster to set new records in 2016 as the team won't be satisfied till they do ! Route 66 Final Friday Nigh Test n Tune 9-25-15
