German Competitors Team BS of Walkertshofen, Germany brought their vehicle to
Nashville, Tennessee for dB Drag Racing World Finals and obliterated the competition
at the 2002 dB Drag Racing World Finals. Their mark of 177.6 decibels (dB) was nearly
two decibels louder than the previous record, also set by Team BS at the dB Drag Racing
European Finals on October 4, 2002 in Bern, Switzerland. Led by Wolfgang Fischer, the
team is made up of twelve hobbyists from Germany. Wolfgang Fischer, Roger Jesse, Robert
Schmid, Jochen Resch, Jörg Völkl, and Manfred Burkhard made the journey to America, and
Joachim Hössle, Peter Unterreiner, Bernd Fischer, Schigg Gerhard, Stefan Magerl, and
Gerolf Owesle remained in Germany during the show.

Team BS used a highly modified Volkswagen Type III fitted with bullet-proof glass and a
cabin strengthened with steel, wood, and concrete. Their van tips the scales at
approximately 14,000 pounds (approximately 6300 kilograms). Team BS used sixteen TREO
Engineering CSX12.09X subwoofers and sixty-four Directed 1100d amplifiers running on a
sixteen volt electrical system. Team BS estimates 100,000 watts of amplifier power was
on tap in their van. Many other competitors at the World Finals were using quad voice
coil subwoofers, but Team BS used dual voice coil subwoofers to set their steel-bending
Team BS took home the crown in dB Drag Racing’s Extreme 13+ class by recording a 177.6
dB score on their final run. The second place team, Team Pure Sounds of Ozark, Missouri
recorded a score of 175.0 dB. In the realm of dB Drag Racing Extreme vehicles, 2.7 dB is
a wide margin. In their previous run Team BS had recorded a score of 177.7 dB.
Team BS won the coveted dB Drag Racing Extreme Cup. The Extreme Cup is a perpetual trophy
that is awarded to the dB Drag Racing Association's overall World Record holder each season.
"It takes a tremendous amount of time, energy, and money to build a vehicle of this caliber,"
said Wayne Harris, president and founder of the dB Drag Racing Association. "This trophy is
intended to recognize that effort." TREO Engineering is extremely proud of Team BS for taking
home the Extreme Cup and winning the very competitive Extreme 13+ class. What is truly amazing
is that these achievements were possible so soon after Team BS first started using TREO.
Within these past 90 days, they were able to beat their own personal best score, and then go
on to win the German, European, and World dbDrag finals with a world record!
For the third consecutive year no TREO Engineering subwoofers failed in the competition lanes
at dB Drag Racing World Finals. Even Team BS’s woofers, taking over 6,000 watts per speaker
were able to take the power with no failures. Team BS also used the woofers in the five-minute
Deathmatch competition. Deathmatch is the most grueling type of SPL competition and it is not
uncommon for every amplifier and speaker in a vehicle to fail while going for the sought after
Deathmatch trophy. Team BS did not have any equipment failures in the Deathmatch. Unbelievably,
Team BS used the same speakers at dB Drag Racing German Finals, dB Drag Racing European Finals,
dB Drag Racing World Finals, and the Deathmatch. Craig Smith, Vice President of Zooss
International who handles international sales and technical support for TREO Engineering calls
