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

Regarding Gale's statement at 1:29, let us just say this to those who were
offended: We're sorry you were offended. For the record, nobody was saying
that everyone in the Middle East hates America and wants to kill us. But
just like in our country where you have mostly good Americans with a few
bad ones mixed in, in the Middle East you have mostly good people with a
few bad ones mixed in. And those few bad ones just happened to kill a lot
of us back in 2001. So while Gale's statement might not have been
politically correct, all he was doing was acknowledging a fact (there are
people who want to kill us) and that he preferred to spend money with his
Watch this video for answers to all your questions (songs, car mods,
setups, etc..) along with bonus footage and updates.
This is a short documentary I made for a class. Using mostly my own found
footage, I give a commentary on "Sleepers" and my own personal experiences
This video was intended to tell a story and be mildly entertaining/funny.
No one in this film thinks they drive the fastest car on the planet. We are
all aware of our limitations.
Try to enjoy it :)
I'm getting messaged like crazy to reveal the mod lists for my cars. This
is a bit difficult to do for the Regal since it almost never had the same
setup on it for more than a few weeks! Anyway I'll try my best!
Z34 - Intake and chip. Stock at the time of the Iroc-Z race.
SHO - SHO SHOp catless Ypipe (That's it!!!) (Stock during most of the Races
in this Video)
vs tuned turbo Cobalt at the Track.
Regal: Headers, mild cam, pulley, tune and intake
Vs stock G8. Regal: same mods as above
11.9 @ 112 in the 1/4 on slicks with some c16 race gas mixed in, m90 blower
Vs full bolt on, gears, tuned 2011 Mustang v6. Regal: TVS swap with
stock TVS pulley. 7psi of Boost.
vs full bolt on, 3.55 gears, tuned 1998 Cobra. Regal: same setup as vs the
Vs 330whp low 12 second Vortech supercharged 2002 Mustang GT. Regal: TVS swap + 2.8''
pulley (14psi) and ethanol.

As always the Regal had stock heads and never had an Intercooler!
Thanks for all the comments!
S-10 diesel drag truck: 7.723
The Banks Sidewinder S-10 drag race team achieved another milestone in
diesel performance when it ran well into the 7.70s with a 7.72 best at
179.21 mph during the 2008 Super Chevy Show at Auto Club Dragway in
Fontana. The world's quickest and fastest diesel drag truck backed up the
7.72 with a 7.78, 179.23 later in the day, making it one of the quickest
and fastest vehicles on the grounds -- period.
Diesel Performance: 7.77 sec @ 180 mph
7.77 Seconds @ 180.00 MPH -- New NHRDA Record.
The record took place March 7, 2009 at the NHRDA Desert Diesel Nationals at
the SpeedWorld Dragstrip in Wittman, Arizona.
2 turbos 1 mountain
Dallenbach Racing and Banks Power have teamed up to take on this year's
Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Driver Paul Dallenbach has set records
on the mountain before, and this year he's aiming to be the first person to
beat the 10 minute mark in the Unlimited class. Helping him get there are
two Banks turbochargers, which Boosted power output from a not-too-shabby 745
hp & 650 lb-ft to a whopping 1307 hp & 1206 lb-ft.
This video was shot May 12, 2011 at the Pikes Peak International Raceway,
and shows calibration development on a chassis Dyno, followed by the first
shakedown test on the track.
What makes this car special isn't just the Banks turbos—it's the team behind it. As opposed to
other full paid race teams with full factory support, they are all
volunteers working with a shoestring budget. Though the car is nearly 20
years old, and they have been running with a massive power disadvantage
(until now!) they still run in the top 3 every year. We like to think of it
as a "David vs Goliaths" story. You can read more and see more at
The big event is June 26, 2011 so make sure to come back and watch what is
sure to be one heck of a race to the top!
