Dave Fiscus of Batavia Ohio holds a few distinctive records in the Turbo (Buick) Street Outlaw community. He holds the ET & MPH (8.73 @ 161.25 mph) records PLUS the most wins in a season EVER! The TA Aluminum block was instrumental in these accomplishments. According to Dave, when he was running a Stage 2 iron block it wasn’t often that the engine survived an event. In 2006, not only did the TA block
survive an event, it survived all of them, after each race the car was able to be driven on to the trailer. During the 2006 season there was never a reason to pull the TA aluminum blocked engine from the car!
“The best thing for me about the `06 Bowling Green event wasn’t that I won, but that I was able to drive the car onto the trailer at the end of the day.”
