They have the same vid on streetfire.net. They show it in slow motion. When you see it in slow motion you can see that the drive belt saves his head. Just when its about to relocate his face the belt does not break and it pulls the blower back down.

He is very lucky to have his head. I thought the blow of valve would prevent that from happening.

I was wondering if he was ok,, at the last of the video,, there is a grey haired guy standing with his back to the camera,, hope he was ok,, I bet he don't stand over another one like that,, I trashed a blown motor in my boat,, it didn't take the blower off like that , but scared the crap out of us,, my son that was setting right in front of it with his back to it, it sneezed hard enough to strip 4 head bolts out of the block,, and melted the tips off of 4 plugs,, it leaned out for fuel,, thats what started the problem ,, havn't tore it apart yet,, to see whats left of the bottom end,, probably don't look very good,, cost money to play,, and not know when to quit,, Bill

Geez, what causes a supercharger to do that? I was thinking about supercharging an engine in the future (Probably year or two) but it that something that commonly happens?

it blow up like that b/c those rocket scientist were playing with nitro fuel or alco settup and when the fumes and raw fuel sits in a big area like the blower and manifold and running retard timming sometimes the spark stays longer and boom the blower blows
real pros would have car off ground and saftey equipment around in case that happens
that dude was so lucky

That video has been around the net for a while. You can hear the engine was not running right. As far as blower restraints they are not required on all blown engines. The type of fuel you run and the class you run dictates that. Blower restraints do not stop pieces from an explosion they prevent the blower from lifting as a unit. Pop off valves and burst panels don't allow explosions like that happen.
