Ginger broke her leg :-(

Went to the track today to try to get into the 11s with just bolt ons and try out my new 315/30 18 Hoosier drag radials. Drag radials stuck REAL good, a little too good actually. Ginger broke her left leg on the first launch. :(

Luckily my buddy had trailered his car out there so I drove his car home and Ginger was taken away on the stretcher.

Oh and I've never really looked, but your car is bad azz looking! Love the drag radials with the letters.

I assume the trailer pic it's strapped down or does it really sit that low?

I don't see any fluid. Just replace the half shaft and your back in business? Or is there carnage?

She really sits that low. On skinnies she is about 3.5" lower than stock up front.

Do you think the new axles on the ZL1 will sustain the Hoosier grip?

That's why going with radials on these things is so expensive lol...from what I've been reading these axle halves on stock power snap.

Yikes, sorry that happened. Do you think you'll do the quick repair or go ahead and upgrade to some heavy duty half shafts?

It's a super easy fix. Just has to decide if he wants to go oem take offs or spend $1400 on upgraded.

I'm no math wiz but you could break a lot of shafts and replace with take offs as opposed to $1400, as long as you don't mind dealing with the hassle.

Already have a replacement lined up. She'll be fixed either tomorrow or Monday (depends on how lazy I am). I'll probably snap a few stockers before I think about upgrading. I was a little too gung ho on the launch. I should have started a little easier.

Going back on Sunday to try again.

If you aren't breaking stuff you aren't trying hard enough.

Nannies off. Launch control is a joke.
