Thumbs down busted flywheel/sheared shaft with pics

tooling down the road at 40mph, i felt the slightest drop in speed just before the motor died."huh?" i noticed black oil coming from one of the bolt holes on the bottom of magneto cover.
pulled it off and there was the flywheel, wedged into the magneto.
the flywheel is comprised of three parts. apparently, one of them came off the main center. the shaft wanted to keep spinning and it did. sheared the flywheel right off.
gonna have to use the ez-out and replace the shaft/flywheel. if this wasnt my race motor, i probably wouldnt try so hard to save it.
