turbo4.com's 4G63 Dragster. Just past half track, the engine expired sending the piston out the side of the block. In the shut down area, the oil coming out of the engine ignited on the hot header and lights up the cockpit. The car still ran a 7.09 at only 149 mph.
GoPro HD Hero: Top Dragster breaks input shaft!
We try to make a qualifying pass for the Quick 16 race and end up shearing
the input shaft. I strapped the GoPro on the rear section of the frame, it
was neat to see the suspension working...also to watch the slicks get real
skinny during the burnout!

I was only 2 miles from this fire heading towards it when the Fire
Department was notified of it, so there is some time that passes before
anyone is on scene. The driver has no idea how the fire started, he stated
he was driving eastbound on 80-94 just before Ripley when the vehicle
stalled and started on fire. Everything from tires, to airbags, to the
magnesium in the column blew before the FD arrived. Nobody was injured at
the scene and great job by LSFD

BMW TwinPower Turbo Engines CGI animation
BMW has released a fancy CGI animation promo for their BMW
EfficientDynamics engine family featuring TwinPower turbo.
The video starts off with an android of sorts virtually building an engine.
It goes on to demonstrate BMW's "Perfect Cylinder" combustion via turbo, Valvetronic and direct injection
Now this is where things get interesting as the android continues to build
a four cylinder engine mounted in a vehicle's engine bay longitudinally.
BMW loyalists might want to look away at this part as the android then
takes another 4-cylinder turbo and
mounts it transversely. This indicates a front wheel drive vehicle, which
BMW has already announced, but not without an apprehensive response from
purists. They fear the move will dilute BMW's ability to make cars with
great driving dynamics - a characteristic the BMW brand has become known
The video continues with the modular engine being expanded to 6-cylinder
and then it's cut in half as a 3-cylinder and fitted to a new smaller
vehicle presumably the upcoming i3.

Here are some runs from the start of the 2013 season for the turbo4.com 4G63 dragster. Thanks to Extreme PSI,
Fuel Injector Clinic, AEM, Airwerks, Manley Performance and turbo4 Race Engines for all of your help! Let's
keep running consistent 6.50's and 60's.
World smallest V12 engine
Apparently the builder's name is Yesus Wilder and he only used three
materials to build the engine. Stainless steel, aluminum, and bronze.
All credits to him.
