1993 Dodge Daytona Blows a connecting rod while at wide open throttle!!
**OK ALL YOU MORONS THAT THINK I BLEW UP A PERFECTLY GOOD CAR: THE UNIBODY WAS ROTTED OUT BEYOND THE POINT OF PASSING INSPECTION. THIS CAR SAT FOR 2 YEARS BEFORE THIS. BEFORE BLOWING THE ENGINE THE CAR WAS THRASHED ON A BACK ROAD AND THE SPIDER GEARS WERE BLOWN OUT OF THE TRANS SO IT DIDN'T MOVE. IT WAS HEADING TO THE JUNKYARD THE NEXT DAY, AND IT PAYS THE SAME RUNNING OR NOT SINCE ITS SUCH A COMMON/WORTHLESS ENGINE SO WE DECIDED TO HAVE SOME FUN!
The Death of a V8 RX7
My 302 powered FB RX7 decided after months of abuse to throw two rods on my
way home from work. It put a hole in the oil pan and two holes in the
block but still I drove it home. I decided since nothing was savable to
take it out back and finish it off.

VW Jetta 'Getta' HY35 Engine Blows and Fire Starts!
My friends 2002 Jetta (2.0 auto) that was swapped with a 1.8t/manual swap,
custom intake manifold and custom turbo
kit with a Holset hy35, ls2 coils, unitronic ECU, digital climate control
swap, audi tt front spindles, clutch masters fh400 clutch setup and audi tt
awd 6speed tranny (will be converted to awd this year).
The stock rods we know were the weak point but it didn't bother us because
we have a fully built motor to go into it. During the video we were having
issues with controlling the Boost
and hitting 2.29-3.3 bars of Boost... and well you'll see the result. The
reason for the fire was a nylon tube that melted and covered the turbo area in oil, which burnt the shifter cables
and some wires. No big loss, 150 dollars in parts and a crazy drive. Will
be back soon with over 550whp ;)
The car was fine we were 1/8 of a mile from the house before it caught
fire. Towed it home and found that the number 2 rod went threw the block
RIP stock 1.8t
Build thread can be seen here
We want to thank the two families who used their car for us to drive to our
house and grab all the water and helped extinguish the fire. We thank you
SO much. Please if you ever see this video contact us we would like to
repay you in some way. To us you guys are heroes.
Who needs rods?
this is a video of my friend Joe drifting his 240, throwing a rod, then
drifting some more. lol.
Burnout contest at the 4wheel Jamboree 2012 in Lima, Ohio on May 20th.
This truck blows it's turbo, and
apparently caught on fire mid way through his run. (even though I never saw
any flames) Fortunately for him, he won 1st place in the end.
Retard Motor Pull
Everything was cherry, but we forgot to unhook the speedo cable which
caused extreme misfortune. hahahaha this is here for your enjoyment.
Motor Blow Up #2
Some more saturday afternoon fun, this motor made close to 500hp and turned
a max of 8600rpm before it blew. It cracked both heads, split the block,
blew a hole in the right side of the block and demolished the starter. Good
MTU 8V 396 diesel engine catastrophic failure
This is a MTU 8V 396 diesel engine blowing up. This video was shown during
a rebuild class I just took. Not really sure what happened. My guess would
be that it spun a bearing, causing a piston to try and sieze, in turn
throwing a rod. Pay attention at 24 seconds to the engine torquing hard to
the left and the terrible sound it makes until it lets go...
Freight Train fires up at 2008 CHRR
Legendary twin engined gas dragster the Freight Train fires up in the pits.
While it doesn't have the cackle of the nitro cars, the "whomp" of 16
cylinders of small block chevy and the cloud of blackie carbon is pretty
awesome...not to mention the engineering feat of linking and synching two
V8s is a neat deal. One of the few gas dragsters that made top fuelers
nervous when running for Top Eliminator.
