Sorry man, just kinda looked like the Google Definition.

SSEi95 fragged his trans. It blew gears out through the case. I fragged my output shaft on the right side, but it stayed in the case.
Bill'* right.... however.... kills are known as "frags" in Doom, so a frag could also been known as a "kill" or "dead" transmission. .... it'* basically one that is dead.

"I see fragged people"
(I've gotta get that shirt.... hehe)

My engine Fragged my tranny. Threw a rod right through it. True definition of "Fragged"

The Doom definition is just "That'* a cool sounding word that means killed"

And I'm a vet, too. I actually got to Frag some stuff, in training, and in combat.

AND, as far as I've seen on this club, I'm the only owner of an M-3800-N/A Fragmentation Engine...

But, did either one throw parts through another system, like a true Fragmentation grenade??

No in both cases the fragmentation of both was contained in each.
The engine got schredded inside on my 91, and the tranny was full of bits in my 97.
