He probably revved it to the limiter and jumped off the clutch!

Bloody hell that is the worst kind of failure I have seen, I suspect something jammed casuing the whole box to shatter...

It was just after I'd changed into 4th and brought the clutch up - soon as I put my foot down it just exploded lol :clap:

Its always had a slight crunch into 4th when hot, I guess the synchro just gave up and jammed everything up!

Never seen that before. Sorry to hear about it, not exactly something you'd want to happen, :bawling: but pretty awesone nonetheless!. :)

Never under-estimate the power of the Skyline :D

Damn.... :bawling:

Well, you know what they say.

If you are going to go, at least go out with a BANG!

And for that, you get mad respect from us. :bowdown1: :bowdown1: :bowdown1:

Jeff you have to be the most unlucky skyline owner there is, 2 or 3 engine rebuilds now the gearbox!

Fairplay to you though for not just jacking it in and scrapping it like a lot of people do.

Sorry to hear and see what happened to your car Jeff.

But I trust that your bottom has not been peppered with shrapnel from the 'box' :eek:
