Eaton and the NMRA have teamed up for a special TVS-supercharged class at the All-Star Nationals at Atlanta Dragway, April 4-7.

If you have a twin vortices supercharger from Magnuson, Roush or one of the other companies that works with Eaton to offer TVS technology on your Mustang, you could win a new supercharger at the NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals in April. Eaton and the NMRA/NMCA are working together to include a special class at the Atlanta event that is only open to vehicles running a TVS supercharger. Make and model of the vehicle do not matter, so long as the car has a modern American V8 and an approved supercharger, with the winner taking home a check for $1,000 and a free TVS supercharger.

TVS Throwdown Details

The Eaton TVS Supercharger Throwdown is part of the Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals at Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Georgia, running from April 4 through 7. The throwdown is open to any car powered by a Ford Modular motor, a GM LS or LT or a Mopar Gen III Hemi. Of course, every vehicle in the field will be running a TVS supercharger and in this all-in, heads-up, winner-take-all class, the grand prize is a $1,000 check, an award with the twin rotor design and a free supercharger from one of the Eaton corporate partners. This includes Edelbrock, Harrop, Magnuson Superchargers and ROUSH Performance.

“This event is made possible because of EATON and its primary technical partners including Edelbrock, Harrop, Magnuson Superchargers, ROUSH Performance, and,” shared Rollie Miller, National Event Director for NMRA and NMCA. “We’ve been talking to enthusiasts and specialty shops to bring their best cars to compete for big money and prizes, while having fun at the All-Star Nationals.”

Considering the requirements for entry into the throwdown, you will likely need to be running consistently in the 8s, if not faster, to have a real shot at the title. However, if your Mustang can lay down back-to-back runs like that, you might want to plan your trip to Atlanta.

Introducing TVS 2650

In addition to showing off the capabilities of vehicles equipped with TVS supercharger technology, Eaton is using the publicity from this event to introduce their newest unit. The TVS 2650 is Eaton’s biggest supercharger to date to utilize the twin vortices technology, offering 25 percent more air flow at 18,000 rpm and 14 pounds of boost than the TVS 2300 while requiring 18% less effort from the engine to spin the unit.

In other words, this is the biggest TVS supercharger ever, offering the greatest power potential due to the increased volume and improved efficiency. The new supercharger also has improved bearings, a 170-degree twist to the rotors rather than 160 degrees and a better seal between the rotors.

If your Mustang wins the TVS Supercharger Throwdown in Atlanta, you could score a new 2650 and make your fast Ford even faster.

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
