F*ck me! Tossed #5 out the block!

At NJ Motorsports Thunderbolt course on the 17th and on 4th lap going thru turn 11A the car locked up and put me into a major tail spin. 98 mph to be exact as whole thing is on PDR which i need to edit and post. So motor is ready to be dropped out the bottom and should have lots of pics of the carnage!
Not sure if bearing on the big end of the rod was the issue or something else. Car is stock minus Flex TSP headers and Rotofab. I was running straight pump when it happened. Cosworth Data log shows "vehicles heath" OK for hi and low oil PSI.
New long block on the way but need oil pan baffle etc...Anyone gotta good line on parts?

98 through 11A is hauling the mail. What’s your personal best?

Sorry to hear. Interested to learn what happened.

Holly crap - that is NOT a good place to lock-up and spin with the bridge concrete right there. I'm glad you didn't hit anything - guessing you went under the bridge spinning.

Not something I was looking forward to hearing as I get ready for Lime Rock, WGI, then NJMP in the next 6 weeks.

How many miles (total) and track miles?

What is going on with the LT1 in the Camaros - I don't recall all these engine failures in the C7 Corvette forums I was on for 3 years.
