OK hears how i did on race day.
first pass an easy 8.60 at 78mph my second pass i launched it at 4000 rpms and ran a 8.04 at 83mph and i still had more advance in the timing.
but when i got to the end of the trac and turned right and i got this grinding sound comming from my rear end. drove it back to the pits and it was clunking and grinding all the way so when i got it home i opened it up for a look. and this is what was inside.
