Gale Banks Engineering has decades of experience being contracted by outside companies and organizations to work on some strange and interesting projects. Aside from developing systems and electronics, Banks has never been afraid of working with new and emerging technology. Instead often embracing it and learning how to better use new developments in automotive technology for better performance, economy and durability.

In 1978 Gale and the Banks Engineering team was contracted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (N.H.T.S.A.) to develop what became known as the Large Research Safety Vehicle (L.R.S.V.) program.
