001-wheel of death exploding engine What Happens When You Run an Engine Out of Oil? It Explodes! Wheel of Death, Vol. 1 is Here.

Welcome to Wheel of Death, the exciting, new automotive web show where we cover not only when things go well on the dyno, but what happens when they don't-all in the name of science! Each episode, we give the wheel a spin. The wheel lands on 1 of 4 positions, with each position indicating a new form of destruction for the motor.

What happens when you drop a nut or bolt down the carburetor? How about running without oil or holding that nitrous button down just a little too long? We show you how to successfully run the dyno test on the engine, then, finish up with the fiery conclusion. On this episode, we subject our dyno mule to the ultimate torture test-running without oil! There will be smoke, there will be fire and there will be carnage-this is Wheel of Death!
