Torque Converter almost makes it into the grandstands?

Recommended Posts

That was my fathers car and to awnser all the questions the bell housing broke and the tranny came compleatly out of the car in a explosion. We are very thankful nobody including the driver was hurt

That's what I was gonna say. Bell housing broke and converter wanted out. Drive shaft caused it?

I am pretty sure that it has happened before and if I am correct it happened at the old Alamo Dragway in either the late 80's early 90's but there was no catch fence in the way and someone sitting in the stands was killed. I believe that was the first fatality at the track but not the last... I never heard what the cause was but I seem to remember it happened at the start line...
