    Catastrophic Fails

    After seeing this pic I thought I would start a topic on any catastrophic fails you come across that hopefully aren't your own.

    Ever wanted to know what the inside of a Maggie heartbeat looks like, here it is

    Been following this thread on f.b..IMHO things don't go bang without reasons..few people think that it was a nitrous backfire but the owner said its not on the bottle although I beg to differ.....

    I haven't got any pictures I can easily upload and nothing as catastrophic as above but I snapped a 24mm solid whiteline swaybar on the front of my old Subaru (the Go Kart) and the same car had the rear sway bar mount tear from the rear chassis point. Lots of welding and plating required on the car to fix that one.
