So here we are, 46 posts into this thread. Aside from that one website, have anyone got any real-world experience with flywheel detonation at anything under 10k?

It appears to be a myth. Maybe something for the Mythbusters?

I REALLY want Adam and Jamie's job!!!
Do you suppose we could get them to examine the myth if we bombarded them with requests? Just kidding.

I doubt they'd do it because it's pretty niche-specific. The average viewer probably couldn't care less.

It would a good prodject for the mythbusters. I ant been on here in a while.

I have spun the magnet out of two cast iron Briggs and Stratton 8hp flywheels, I don't have no proof cause I scrapped the flywheels afterward.

I have also watched a flywheel break in half and sling off the crankshaft on honda powered generator but I don't have no picture proof.

How about we all just post on the same topic to get some traffic to it. If they see that the same topic has like 10 replies, they'll be more interested.
