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 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.

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

not really sure. The announcer said its the worlds fastest....or one of the
worlds fastest... calm down. If u find the fastest on here then reply it to
The World's fastest caught on video. It blows black smoke from the Exhaust before blasting off down the strip.

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??"
Banks water injection: Supercharged Duramax 871S
Here we're testing our Straight-Shot water-methanol injection system (we're
using 100% water at this point) so we removed the scoop to give a view we
bet you've never seen before in a Dyno video. This pull was from
1000-5500 rpm with a top blower speed of 16,500 at the top of the pull.
We're using the injection system for charge air cooling of the Supercharger. Stay tuned for more noise and more
In our previous Duramax 871 (8 cylnder, 7.1 liter) dragster engine Dyno video
(http://youtu.be/7q7zXmxy-kc) the camera gets blown back by the blow-off
valve, and in this run the camera gets sucked towards the Supercharger. We're going to have to strap those
babies down better!
