I must admit I didn't whip my Leatherman out and chop into his splice...
But if it was a long splice the core was thinned down far too far.
Some folks perhaps think that exotics mean erotics and they forget to learn the special ways some of these 'new' things work
So if the camera
set up with the rope
that failed was a loop then one needs to look at that splice... or whatever the connection/s.
. The drive rope failed near the Turn 1 connection and fell to the track.
