Dateline June 29, 2016. Moraine, Ohio – Magic happened today and I got be there…!

The final special machining operation on the first full production run of Banks 866T base engines is complete! These Dmax folks are something special, I’m humbled by their professionalism and their friendship.

July will be a big deal for our Defense Engine Division, Banks Technologies as we start initial production of our Banks 866T engines for the most bad ass tactical vehicle of this century, the Oshkosh JLTV.

I’m a hot rodder from Lynwood California, a cop’s kid and a gearhead. All I ever wanted was to have the fastest car in town. There is no way I would have ever dreamed this.
