 *smile* rofl++, love that crankshaft and pieces of rods still moving in the debris.
(...sorry for the "Schadenfreude" lol, and of course sorry for the owner\creator, but trying to get 2000hp more out of that engine was a very bad concept...)

Rather sad I thought; the poor little engine is still trying it's best to run  *sad2*

G'day fellas.
Yep, had a couple of those (not quite as spectacular). Had the barrels lift off the crankcase at about 7500 RPM on the A7SS down Eastern Creek straight (twice). Tapping the bottom of the petrol tank for quite a few seconds before it stopped.
Cheers
