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.

also, I dont want to sound like an A$$, but why did you continue to stay in it if you were wheel hopping that bad?

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.
