Mustang Blow Up
March 6, 2009
Las Vegas Midnight Mayhem
I was just testing out the video when this Mustang's engine blew up.
Please check out my newest video "Lightning Strike Prediction"
Anytime you take a couple F2 chargers feeding a whole bunch of cubes and add methanol even on only half of max Boost it is quite a show.. Intake gasket that didn't want to play cut the day short. Around 1,600whp through an auto! Lots left in the car and the Dyno. Over 1K ftlbs by 4 thousand... Easily the new top HP record for the Dyno without even trying yet. Had manners like a street car just a bit more bark.
Built by Mark Werdehausen of Tydo racecars. A few of the components came from Taliaferro machine shop. On the Superflow Autodyn 30 in springfield, Mo.
Ever thrown a rod? how about a block?
HUGE engine explosion at a tractor pull event. the block is literally blown out of the engine bay and lands onto the ground next to the tractor. as far as catastrophic faliure goes, this is as bad as it gets.

Dodge Challenger Slow motion Wheelie
1974 Dodge Challenger Slomo Wheelie vid. Santa Pod 2010 eurofinals. By Blackett Photography. Here the car is powered by a 572ci Wedge motor. Runs mid 9's @ full weight (3850lb +). To make the caltracks work you need plenty of front end lift, bump stops were removed and frames notched to get almost 6 1/2 inches of travel. Something Chrysler never designed that suspension for I'd guess. We've since improved the bump steer by replacing parts and resetting the camber / castor as the front has aftermarket parts and plenty of adjustment.
In reality it's difficut to fully eliminate without going to a strut type front end, though some people appear to have done it on stock stuff, it seems to be a common chrysler trait. Check out the superstock video's from the '70s and most Mopars do it also check out my other real time wheelie vids you see that the wobble lasts only a fraction of a second.
Thanks for the comments.
