CRANKWALKED? 7-bolt teardown 1080HD
One for the weekend warriors... Audio track by RojoDelChocolate. And that really is Mr. Chocolate himself playing some jungle-action on his drum kit to a bunch of garage band loops. Give the man some props!
Here's the 48,000 mile-old 7-bolt I blew up this summer after over 150 drag passes, a half dozen Dyno sessions, 4 transmissions, 3 clutches and 10 years of hard all-weather use. The cleanliness of the crankcase and overall lack of carbon buildup is a testament to the quality of Mobil1 Synthetic oil.
Now this is a story all about how
My bearings got flipped-turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there
And tell you how I used to mix and burn my gas and my air.
In RVA suburbs born and raised
On the dragstrip is where I spent most of my days
Chillin out, maxin, relaxing all cool,
And all shooting some BS outside with my tools
When a couple of guys who were up to no good
Started running races in my neighborhood
I heard one little knock and my rods got scared
And said "You put it in the garage until you figure out where..."
I Begged and pleaded that it not be that way,
But it didn't want to start and run another day.
I kissed it goodbye, because the motor punched its ticket
I got out my camera, said "I might as well kick it."
Crankwalk yo this is bad
Drinking metal shavings from an oil pan.
Is this what the rumor of crankwalk is like?
Hmm this won't be alright
But wait I heard knocking, grinding and all that
Is this the type of failure that should happen to this cool cat?
I don't think so, I'll see when I get there
I hope they're prepared for this video I share.
Well I pulled all the bolts and when I came out
There were chunks in my fluids in the pan and they drained out
I aint trying to get depressed cause I got all my spares out.
I sprang into action like lightning disassembled
I whistled while I worked and my hands never trembled
The 7-bolt was FRESH with the shine like a mirror
If anything I can say this bling was rare
What I saw inside the engine stained my underwear.
I turned off the air compressor 'bout 7 or 8
And I yelled to crankcase "Yo holmes, smell ya later"
I looked at my internals they were finally there
To sit on my workbench and stink up the air.

Huge Big Rig Race Crash! June 2002 Calgary
Scary Big Rig Race Crash June 2002 Calgary. (Crash at the 2:00 mark)
One of the scariest moments I caught in all my 25 years covering racing at Race City. Look for #76, the star and stripes Peterbilt get pinched and wrecked into the corner three wall at the 1:59 mark. Fortunately the driver suffered only minor injuries despite having to be rescued by safety crew with jaws of life. The destruction was staggering, however the truck cockpit stayed together due in part to the construction and thought given to protecting the driver. The race was red flagged in less than five seconds, Race City recue crew was on his truck in less than 30 seconds. I will follow this up with an interview with Mike (the racer) I conducted a year later...

Old School Supra Powered Corolla Crash at New England Dragway 10/15/11
New England Dragway's Import Madness
October 15, 2011
Both cars are low 8 second 1/4 mile cars powered by supra engines.
The lanes were really slippery this day and some of the supra powered corollas and other old school imports were having trouble getting traction.
The first car has a near crash and amazing save, almost rolled.
The second car was not so lucky, no footage of the actual accident but the aftermath speaks for itself, luckily both drivers were ok.
