Am I wrong, or did the entire block shear off below the heads on that?

Does the term 'Magnaflux' mean anything to you?

I agree...One lucky bugger...

:shock:

omg :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: that almost had to be a nitrous blow----but i don't see a bottle :roll: even though he was blipping the throttle, doesn't appear a situation where a stuck intake valve would do that----and it didn't blow out the plates.

salmoneye---the blower manifold parted

Its a wonder it didn't take his hand off. Makes me wonder if nitros wasn't involved, but like TT said I don't see a bottle.

Think what would have happened if it had blew the other way, towards the front. BAD NEWS.

Probably have to put on clean drawers, as I'm sure he had skid marks on the ones he was wearing.

I think it was just the alcohol fuel. It looks like a dragster so I bet it was running on the good stuff when it popped.

Blower explosion. Thats why modern top fuel dragsters have the engine behind the cockpit. Improper timing and a long duration cam or valve float at high RPM introduces a spark to the compressed fuel/air mixture in the blower manifold, and blammo. At least he wasn't giong down the track when it happened.
