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!

24V71 Detroit
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.

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 power! 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! If you haven't seen this engine run on the track in its twin-turbo form here you go: http://youtu.be/dKc7d73yOSs

Banks Super-Turbo Freightliner RACE FOOTAGE
Truck did great. It rained and snowed later in the day when it was our time to race. So driver Mike Ryan couldn't go 100%, but he did an awesome job. Had to take it easy in the corners but hammered it in the straights. Next year, weather permitting, we will be back to destroy the record! A couple things we'd like to point out... those spectators at 0:59 are crazy close to the track! And at 2:27 you can see that yes, it was indeed very wet up there when we ran. See more videos from the mountain and from the race shop, plus get all the tech specs here: http://www.bankspower.com/pikespeak
