Yeah, I read that too, and I should point out that these were high HP racing trucks with NOS...
The thing about me that has me scratching my head is that the way they would explain the LPOP gears going out would only be at the VERY end of the track where you go from WOT to nothing... Even the minor amount of oil pressure already in the lines would still be enough for you to make it off the track and back to the staging lanes. Most that blame the FD for breaking the gears came within the first 1/8th mile or so where the pressures are (relatively) constant.
