Ouch, Saw the other thread as well. Sucks that this happened. I'm sure the next build will be stronger and more powerful.

Good luck.

Saw your other thread, sorry to hear about this. Can you elaborate on how this happened? what gear? what RPM? What do you think may have caused this?

and get us some more pics where the whole is on the passenger side..really curious.

Btw i like how you gutted it and it weighs 2900lbs. Probably pulls really strong at the track.

Almost have it out, took about 4 hours to get to this point. I was also answering the cell phone, talking to the neighbors, smoking, drinking, and took a 15 dump. SO, we are moving right along. SHould have the "money shot" of the block for you tomorrow.

It was a ninja-like failure. No warning, no lights, was running great. Came out of one of the few right handers on this course and there was a quick and violent pop. Bam.........your done.

I was in 3rd at speed, probably 60-80MPH, hard right hander.
