Bad day for this guy...
« on: September 26, 2011, 10:41:02 am »
It's a short video.  8 seconds long, to be exact.

Piston exits engine

I have always wondered why these guys don't have something like the transmission blankets they use in the dragsters.

Good question, actually.  As I recall, there was a guy on a top fuel Harley that had a piston go and it killed him.  Crazy stuff.
