Watch This Differential Explode

Truck YeahThe trucks are good!

This drag racer’s day certainly took a turn when the differential at the back of the guy’s Nissan truck exploded. Yes, exploded.

BangShift notes that this V8-swapped truck shouldn’t have had this problem. It was running a normally-quite-stout Ford 9-inch rear, but apparently the shock of full power on the grippy surface exposed some kind of weakness in the system.
