LOL im always screwing something up (pics)
 
Well decided to go down to the local 1/8 mile strip just to set up the 2-step and work on my 60fts. it was on a streetheat night ( lots of stock cars with stock tires) so i knew the track prep was gonna suck but god damn. ok so i did a nasty 2nd gear burnout (smoke show) pulled up to the line put it on the 2-step (5100rpm) lets her eat and she blew the tires off, immediately spins and hits the rev limiter so hard that it shook the dash. i let out of it and the car died (o shit lol) tried starting it up and nothing. popped the hood and i blew off the intercooler piping where the maf is. Hooked it back up and drove away, car felt fine but i wanted to check everything out. this is what all broke, AC line, Coil mount bracket, Exhaust got dinted, broken motor mount one that hangs over the tranny, and the grand finale I bent the same Top tranny mount bracket arms that extent from the frame rail lol. so now i drove it home bent them back and in a couple of days i will gusset them. everything is fine tho. dont know why it bent them but im guessing cause it shocked everything from hitting the rev limiter so hard. Moral of story i wont be going back there.

There not suppose to be bend back like that it moved the tranny and everything

LOL ya im gonna make them stronger and it wasnt the tires it was how shitty the track prep was. i will go to bradenton and run it at a good track, but its all fixed now

Yep. First few times I ran on a track I got such bad wheel hop the whole front end shook. Good thing you let out of it real quick as did I. An AC line and a motor mount is cake to replace, much better than a snapped axle.
