VIDEO: WARNING – TRANSMISSION MAY BE FLAMMABLE

WHEN transmission fluid gets hot it burns like petrol, as the owner of this supercharged Commodore found out when his trans overheated and sprayed fluid all over the engine bay.

How long until fire suits and on board extinguishers are mandatory on blown cars? Let us know you thoughts in the comments section below.
