This happened at the Southwest Superchargers event, 8/16/14 Converter was still spinning when it hit the ground. Driver was fine. Converter was inches away from hitting people.

I missed that post....
That's ok. I tried to be nice and not shout out REPOST.
I know a bunch of that group, but did not recognize that car.
A couple top dragster types that detune to run the 7.50 index and at least 3 funnys.
Hand full of altereds too. Really is a neat group of people.

The girl in the other lane is Brittny Blakely who is a previous JR Dragster national champ. There are some very nice cars in that series and some not so nice.

What was in that a stock case glide?
Yep, trans carnage pics in the other post. Looked like it had a shield, for the internals. But, didn't see anything in regards to the bellhousing area. May have had something, just didn't see it in the pics.

It looks more like a country back road than a dragstrip? FUCK those are thin lanes...
