Odd? I think the answer can be found in basic common sense. If you can break a part, but replace it with the same part. What do you think is going to happen?

I didn't take any photos as we were more concerned about getting the car home and fixed. The broken parts were traded in as cores for replacement axles and when the replacement axle broke it went right back for another replacement to get the car home. I admit that I do regret not taking any after seeing this thread blow up like it has, but at the time I thought breaking axles when drag racing was a common occurrence especially when dragging a FWD car. I didn't realize that no one was really pushing the Focus at the track to be a street strip car.

If you wanna see a set of broken stock axles then send us a set. We'll happily break them for you and if they don't break we'll buy them from you...
