I didn't stay in it. The track was real cold so they layed more glue down than usual to compensate.

I lifted the throttle completely but kept hopping (didn't even slow down) so then I got on it trying to spin the tire(s) with no luck.

Mount is in. I love it.

kenpokid You must have wheel hopped really bad. Like front end bouncing in the air bad...I am suprised your axle(s) or tranny didnt break over the motor mount. Weird. I think your motor mount might have been weakend by previous activity Whatever that might have been.

2.0TooSlow Passenger side boot slid off, and the grease is all over my subframe and the back of the block.

MAC rear motor mount survived. The bushings got chaved into a bit, but it will be fine.
