what happened to your axle?
I'm pretty sure I broke it in Packwood last weekend. I made the Super Challenge at the Pro Solo, did a burnout, pulled up to the line and when I went to launch the car wouldn't move and spewed tranny fluid out the drivers side axle seal.
I had the exact same thing happen in Packwood 4-5 years ago and it was a broken axle that time. I have also had a ring and pinion failure in the past that posed the same symptoms but figured I'd try getting a spare axle regardless of what it ends up being. I just got the car out of the trailer yesterday and haven't had a chance to tear into it yet.

Ziker thanks for the tip. I may try rebuilding mine if I cant find a used one. It seems there should be plenty around with all of the engine transplants going on. I found my last one here on the forums.
