Who Broke Something?

Haven't heard of any misfortune but did anybody break anything?

I don't want to be the one to bring bad news, but I did see a car "break" something on the drag strip on Saturday...

Couple or 3 breaks, yeah... I know of a popped turbine, clutch gone south, and a pumpkin locking up (last I heard).

Really not bad considering the guys were letting it all hang out putting on a great show!

My car survived a thorough beating.

I know of 1 rear end that was lunched, 1 set of half shafts, 1 clutch, and one maggie (rear drive was loose or broke and took out the blower).

Lingenfelter black car broke second gear in a really hard shift - they had it fixed in an hour.

Had my driveshaft go in the morning session of the Pfadt Track Attack. Fortunately the guy who made it (Frank from DSS) was at the show and with his son's help was able to come up with a temporary fix that enabled me to get back home safely.
