Here's the aftermath of my first time at the drag strip with my regal little warning to manual equipped cars .Car specs are 427 BBC m21 trans . I had a stock 69 Chevelle bell housing stock Corvette flywheel clutch pressure plate setup all running through stock 242 7.5 ,first run did a 1/4 mile burn out ,second run this happened on the line, my pressure plate blew apart thankfully only put a chip in the bell housing cracked the flywheel ,l broke my distributor cap also ,I have a blowproof bell going on now didn't realize I was make enough power to do this

Yea everything was tight the pressure plate was used in my stock car for a season then in my truck for afew months so I might have been dropped or something along the line definitely NOT the brands fault just wanted to show a little example that all
