800hp Turbo Camaro Cracks Oil Pan…. Wheels Up Gone Wrong

When it comes to drag racing, to those who don’t really know what they’re looking at, it might just seem like a bunch of guys going in a straight line and easily doing so, however, we don’t have to tell you, the experienced drag racing fanatic, that it’s a lot more than that! We all know that racing isn’t just about the competition or about chasing down that best pass but also about those adrenaline-filled moments where things don’t go exactly as expected. One category that you could stick in that bigger category would be when cars find a way to transfer all of their power to the rear tires, taking the weight along with it, and sending the nose of the car up into the air in an epic wheelie.
In order to bring us the action this time, we turn to our friends from the TalonTSi97 YouTube channel. This time, their cameras captured a moment that you’ve got to see as the Chevrolet Camaro that goes by “STMZ28” really didn’t do the driver very well as this pass was sort of all over the place. For starters, we get to watch as the car prepares for liftoff, sending the nose into the sky. After that, though, the car ends up fighting a losing battle with gravity as the force snags the car out of the air and brings it back down, hard!
In the video down below, we’re able to follow along with an intense moment from the strip as we get to appreciate a spectacular angle of it all as picked up by TalonTSi97 who was on the ball to get the shot. Unfortunately, though, for the stellar example of a Camaro, all didn’t end well for the Chevy product as it would suffer a cracked oil pan. I guess that, at the end of the day, it could’ve been a lot worse.
