Do you remember the name "nuetral starts" also? shruggy
I do and if my memory is correct the picture your talking about was caused by a "neutral start" scope

TF's were exploding long before anybody ever heard the term "transbrake".



i remember the famous picture of the 64 dodge pushed back, exposing a "few" expensive parts on the ground covered in transmission fluid. shock
that was a ways before transbrakes were invented.

And it had the rear band on in low too.

oh yes ! we called them "neutral drops" around here. it's amazing none of us got out feet blown off, as many as we did growing up ! shock
and there was also what we called "J-Hooks", where we would go as fast as we could in reverse, then jam it into low !
the longest "Hook" was the winner. or "wiener", thinking back on it now......... laugh2

and i believe you are correct about that picture being caused by a neutral drop or start.

The driver never did neutral drops. Ever.

Didn’t have to. Car ran more than 4 tenths under the record.

More internet B.S.

I've seen cars (of all brands, not just Mopars) due neutral drops or starts at Orange County drag strip, the old Irwindale 1/4 mile strip. The first time i saw was at Mickey Thompson Fontana Drag City in Fontana, CA in 1964. work
Have you seen the picture of the AA/Fuel altered dropping, blowing, the complete crank assembly and the bottom of the block out of a early blown fuel Chrysler firepower hemi at Orange County drag strip in the late 1960s
I wish I had found and bought a copy of that one, but I didn't realcrazy
it was an excellent picture, you could see the oil coming down with the parts. I was told it had a clucthflyte in the car also, you could see the flywheel on the back of the crank also shock: work:

But burnouts in 1st gear were common then with no LBA. Same possible result.

The biggest contributor to ORC failure is roller spit back under power.

The other contributors are cam movement in the case, excessive race to drum clearance/runout, excessive drum to support clearance/runout.
