Default So what part falls off?


Check this video out, watch at the very end, there is something that comes off the supra but I can't tell what it is. It's at the very front on the driver side (near the turn signal) but it looks like a flywheel or something. I am pretty sure it's a flywheel...

its pretty much impossible for that to be a flywheel. You would have heard some distinct noises accompanying it It looked more like something that was just under the car that the wind blew out.

Looks like can clutch to me. Should be electric though so maybe a harmonic balancer cover plate or another pulley cover plate. It was definitely a part of the car by the speed it had.

It is definately something that is carrying some momentum. If you fullscreen it and look close, you can see it throw some sparks with it hits the ground and then peel off in the direction it is spinning.

Well it's definitely not a flywheel. If it was, the flywheel would have come out the hood, both fenders, embedded in the ground, and would have simply been shrapnel.


Perhaps a degree wheel was left on the pulleys? Why you'd install one on a fully assembled engine is beyond me but some people do wierd things. The engine seems to run fine after it leaves.

Lol its a supra too. I bet it was a dressing part that went over one of the pulleys. I dont know what else it could have been. No way the flywheel or a pulley its self, you would have heard alot of destruction for that.
