haha yea it was super badass....but no vid, and it was a serious one too right in front of my house...once shes fixed ill go for it again...

and blowing the clutch is a good possibility....but if the u joint snapped, wouldnt pieces be everywhere, and i just heard a quick snap type sound..like a click after i nailed 3rd and she died...

ok that would make sense.....any suggestions for a beefed up clutch? it was a spec stage 2 with adjustable quadrant...i guess i will step up to the king cobra??
