TVS Supercharger Throwdown showcases the Eaton twin vortices technology at the NMCA All-Star Nationals.

If you have a TVS supercharger on your Camaro, Corvette and Firebird and you are making enough power to win any heads-up, quarter mile showdown, you might want to sign up for the Eaton TVS Supercharger Throwdown. This unique class is being held as part of the NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals on the weekend of April 4 through the 7 at Atlanta Dragway and the price package includes a new TVS supercharger. The winner also gets a check for $1,000, but with the new blower being worth up to $7,600, that is the crown jewel of the class prize package.

Throwdown Details

The Eaton TVS Supercharger Throwdown will be held during the Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals at Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Georgia. Any race car powered by an LS or LT engine fitted with a TVS supercharger is eligible for entry, as are Ford Modular motors and Mopar’s Gen III Hemis, but everything has to be supercharged. It is one big class and it is heads-up, so you are going to need to be very quick to win, but the prize is impressive.

As mentioned above, the winner gets a check for $1,000 and an award that is based on Eaton’s twin vortices design, but the most important portion of the winner’s take is a new TVS supercharger from any of Eaton’s corporate partners. Those partners include 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 SuperchargersOnline.com,” 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.”

So if you have a Camaro, Firebird, Corvette or some older GM race car with a TVS-blown LS or LT engine and you are confident that you have what it takes to go rounds in a heads-up class with some of the quickest street cars in the country, you will want to plan your trip to Atlanta for early April.

The TVS 2650

While the key purpose of the Eaton TVS Supercharger Throwdown is to showcase the popular forced induction technology, the company is using this event to promote their newest blower. The TVS 2650 is the biggest supercharger in the series, featuring a 170-degree twist, larger bearings for improved durability, a seal between the rotors and improved pressure relief points. The result of these changes is a supercharger that is 15% bigger than the TVS 2300, offering 25% more air flow at 18,000 rpm and 14 pounds of boost while requiring 18% less input.

A lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years, Patrick Rall is highly experienced in the automotive world. He has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now auto journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

“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 Rall. “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. Meanwhile, 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,” adds Rall. “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. 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, 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.”
