No snapped axles yet on any I know of, just fun! With a manual trans, any wheel hop can and will break most anything in the drivetrain, but most know to lift as soon as you feel any.

In this context it means to remove one's right foot from the go pedal before creating a maraca out of the differential. (or snapping axles, etc...)

pgustavson is correct.

I see the inexperianced at the track go into wheel hop (on our dragsters it is "tire shake". It will break even the toughest pasts (and it a dragster almost knock you unconsous).

As to the power steering, all I can say is that it takes what seems like a million cycles of cranking the wheel back and forth, lock to lock, with the front end off the ground, until you get all the air out of it. Have a helper watch the fluid level so it doesn't get low and they can watch for air bubbles as they shake out.

If your power steering return line isn't flowing well, get a longer piece of sturdy hose from NAPA and route it a bit more gently than the one IPF includes.

And make sure to route that oil drain hose well away from the air conditioning lines. The braided steel on the drain line makes for a great saw against the aluminum of the a/c lines...found that one out the hard way.

My pump blew up for no reason a year ago , I went to the store for groceries and started it and it was a goner , They replaced it under warranty, my car was all stock , just letting you know they can go bad .

Mine went bad 1400 because they had to move the super charger and replace a pulley. I should be good as soon as IPF gets my tune
