    No lies we all saw it happen, and then Fallon confirmed it everyone. Click here to enlarge
    Hopefully more information will come. This car is the red one that Derek owns. I asked if it was like a charge pipe popped off or what - sounds not good.

    It is unlikely it is something she did, car is SMG right? Maybe she turned the meth off or who knows what program she ran.

    I don't want to say he asked for this, but...

    Nobody deserves a blown motor, actually scratch that, I can think of a few people.

    Well his car was daily driven and had some 60K miles on it. I think people sometimes forget there are not many 700+ HP builds that will do that... in any make car. I heard the car run afterward and it sounded to me like a dead cylinder.

    Doesn't really matter how many miles are on it. Something failed and it sounds like it was the fuel system from what he posts.

    I guess that's what happens when you let a trained poser play with your 700+rwhp car. Lesson learned the hard way......poor thing.

    I know nothing about the situation, just find it interesting that the guy who told me HPF motors don't blow and I must have done something to blow mine up (with only 2500 miles on it) blows his weeks later...

    Maximum irony. It doesn't help the situation that people were crowded around Fallon when she realized and Chris instructed her not to say something and to act like nothings wrong rofl. I can't reveal my sources, but obviously they were at M Fest.

    Eye witness baby - I don't think the blown motor part is funny, I think the secrecy from Chris was interesting given how "transparent" he is.

    Damn - jammed hood? That's a new one. How'd it happen?

    I was putting my AEM back in and I backed away from car to smoke cig and hood fell shut on it's own. Pretty sure there a tool or something jammed in there. My bodyshop guy should be here any day but he's crazy busy. I got to get this damn thing open so I can get my fried DSC fixed(another story all my fault. Lol)

    That is a lot of miles, not bad.
