    Hell, looks a ton safer than a Nitro powered Hemi..!
    No explosions (VERY few anyway), no hot oil in the face, no blower or manifold shrapnel in the face, no burning nitro in the face..!!
    Just move the tail pipe over a bit to make getting in and out a little easier...no problem.

    Mr. Mo -

    When the pieces of a turbine explode, they will go "OUT", as in...away from the center of the axis MUCH faster than blower parts "effectively" staying in place, while the driver drives thru the mess of parts...
    By the time the driver gets to the turbine blades, they'll be FAR from the driver. Plus, turbine blades are tiny little things with VERY low mass.
    Kinda like driving thru rain..!

    AmishMike -

    You're funny. You musta missed my "like rain" comment.
    Have you ACTUALLY SEEN the blades in those engines..??
    They MIGHT make a scratch in the drivers helmet..! Even larger, full sized engines have small light weight Titanium blades (except for the slower spinning front blades, that these little engines DO NOT HAVE). The oh so very FEW...engines that do explode, are turning MUCH higher rpms than those little industrial engines.
    Well, yea, I'd have to somewhat agree...if a driver had an open face helmet, like most had back then...still, a few stitches are MUCH more likely than a broken cheek bone, burned skin, or a concussion from a part of a blower case, or rotor smacking the driver in the face..!

    I have a good idea about the size and weight on the high speed blades in the full sized engines...I used to build, several sizes of them back in the early 90's..! I've also been in and around the engine test cells that they use to MAKE them (big full sized engines) explode..see the light!

    You guys need to see the light (unintended pun !), a LIGHT weight part will do less harm than a HEAVY part...period..! Remember your 8th grade physics class..?

    Maybe the first altered drag race, at Goleta, CA, 1949. That's Eric Rickman, according to Don Montgomery, photographing the finish line (you can see "finish line" on the ground. The car on the left is unknown, but the chopped and channeled coupe on the right is Lonnie Butts, who later raced the "Twitch-a-Wee" Fiat-bodied competition coupe.

    here is the same place today, the buildings in the background are still there.

    In 33 years working for a large airline. The only blades I remember coming out were fan blades. Of any engine on anybodys airplane. Needless to say, shaft turbine as pictured do not have fans. But some people love to worry.

    Remember what the Claymore mine says..."front toward enemy".
    So much for the small pieces controversy.

    You guys apparently don't know much about the inside of a turbine engine..!

    Not much I can do about the small pictures, but this is one of my favorite (one of about 5 of my top AA/FA) Fuel Altereds.
    Magnificent 7.

    The on track photo is from Calder Park raceway near Melbourne, Australia. The side view with the Murray River in the background is from the owner's home town of Echuca. The engine is an early Holden (GM) "grey" motor which is like a scaled down early Chevy six.
