I was about three rows in front of the camera man when this happened.
It was pretty neat to see.

More common on diesel smokers. Its caused from 250+ psi of boost and over 3000 hp, the block splits right at the main bearings. Now they are tie barring the head to the block to try and hold the entire thing together at these extreme levels.

:whs: Now they have cables around the engine so that when it splits, it doesn't fall out of the tractor and get run over.
