This is my old flywheel that i just replaced. Notice the center bolt section is gone. Any ideas on how this happens?

Obviously an external balanced engine. Something went out of balance. Suspect loose crank bolts. Be sure to red locktight the bolts when you replace the wheel.

its actually pretty common for the flywheel to crack, and the center is the weakest point...the flywheel in both my camaros cracked and the truck as well...not to that degree but enough you could actually hear that something wasnt right.

This could be caused if the bolts come loose and the plate starts getting a wobble to it. The torque converter could have come loose and started smacking it or the harmonic balancer could be going bad and you never know till you get it off to inspect the rubber that goes around it. High HP, a lot of stomping the pedal, or simply just age could stress it out.
