EL Falcon Engine blowup - loses two rods and keeps on going!
An EL falcon on its way out, well more like getting ready to be turned into
Anyways we tried to drop the oil, turns out it had been running a hill
billy dry sump similar to when you do not add any oil for 300,000 k's.
A little tip to get us started - if you do not have jumper leads, grab a
battery and jam the terminals ontop of the battery in your car - works a
charm - process show in the first few seconds of the video.
The motor started and ran a bit rough, sitting on the limiter for about 15
seconds the rough idle was sorted out by two rods exiting the sump and she
ran a whole lot better from then on in.
Gotta add - big thanks to Simbad - it was his idea, his workshop, his car
and motor. Thanks for the laugh on this one mate!

This project has been on for many years, the early streetable 500kW was a
drive car then it has seen 600, 700, 800, 900kW upgrades and now when we
can get traction its on the way to showing the 1000kW or 1000rwhp.
Thanks to Richie and Roger for asking us to try.
This is not a road car, it does not get used on the road.
