Ok, we are back to axle breaking again I see! Although, it does seem a little easier to deal with than getting my car out of a TREE!

Fun fact, the car was being towed because I snapped an axle after the engine build. Brand new (build in 2007 but never installed) 300hp rated axles on a maaaybe 180 hp car, but it was spun up around 7200RPM, pulled the inside wheel off the ground on a long sweeper with high grip 275 Hoosier A7s, and the Torsen sent ALL the torque to that axle when it finally landed.

Thanks, Tim. I feel much better now....
