poor bugger that must have hurt!

Hurt? It took his f*cking hand off. See the gloved thing flying off into the distance?

24th May 2006, 19:30
Shit! yeah I think you're right :gob:

24th May 2006, 19:38
JEEZ, I hope that was just the glove!

Did you see the tank jump!.... Cool.

I've watched it a few times and slowed it down... I think he still has a hand at the end, it looks like an explosion in the intake and the ram air pipe falling off?

I've seen this before.... I thought the thing flying off was the piston, I believe the engine threw a piston and continued upwards through the fairing, etc...

one hell of an explosion to put a piston through the head - past the carbs, threw the tank then up into the air.

more reasonable theroy would be an explosion in the air box.

wasn't a piston, the guy still has his hand, he wears a bullet proof vest now. I think there is a thread on this somewhere already? there is another video from a different angle too, don't have the link tho sorry.

Yeah there is no way the piston would escape like that.

It's a repost. The thing that comes off is his hand, he just got some very bad bruising out of it. Had the clip gone on a bit longer you would have seen his hand is still attached to his body.

That's a NOS backfire, he isn't seriously hurt (but he is seriously hurting :pinch: ). Saw another video of this from a different angle.

Original thread. Only a couple of years old heh. That would have been a fright and a half.

Despite the thread being a little old... THAT's your evidence?

removed, just saw the date on the thread.... why was this on the top of my list?!

answer: it would seem there isn't much posting in the drags section, that's why
