    I read that he was using methanol/water mix... I don't fully understand it and I don't know much about what happened but this explosion is being attributed to "can't compress a liquid".

    If you had searched, you would "c" the thread on here.

    Of course, that's an awful lot to ask for someone who's too damn lazy to type see. Jesus.

    There was no water/meth....trans over revved in 4th and overspun the SC. There were other mods as well, but it had nothing to do with water/meth.

    Always annoyed with people who say, "If you did a search...." Stop being an ass. Sometimes it's from another site and people are excited to share.

    So when I see pics of your girlfriend or wife on mydudeisanass.com I'll do a search to see if someone else has posted.

    Had to be the catch can.

    If he had one, it probably got sucked into the blower.

    If he didn't, rotors weren't properly lubed.

    Yes, it was the catch can or lack of one.
    :D:eek:

    Ah, aren't you a peach.

    I'm always annoyed with people who post they're annoyed....

    So yes, I'll continue to be an ass, and I'll continue to annoy you, and I'll continue not giving a shit. I'd hate to let you down, after all.

    I'm not. Probably a good thing, I'd fail every single lazy twerp that couldn't use proper grammar.

    It's the dumbing down of America on full display, this ain't Twitter.

    Overspeed the supercharger and they go "boom". I believe I read the transmission was the issue, as in 4th gear went out. Could be wrong, but the supercharger may have found its limit for tuning.
