When my buddy Brandon Weber sent me this photo yesterday of the inside of the 8.8″ Ford rear axle in his ultra bitchin turbo LS powered Mustang, I cringed. He knew he broke it at the CA Flashlight Shootout at XRP here in Texas but it wasn’t until he got the cover off that the actual damage was exposed. He was laughing at the track when he told me it was broke, and said that the rear had been in the car for several years without issue, so he didn’t feel too bad. And he said it was also time for a new ratio anyway, so it was no biggie. Well it certainly was a biggie to the ring and pinion. Look at all the crap in the bottom of this sucker!!!
I told him this should be a good calling card for his business, Accelerated Racing Solutions, because it shows just how much power this dude can tune into something! Need power? Call Brandon!
Looking at this photo got us thinking about stuff we’ve broken over the years, and how most of the time we don’t think about the bad ones until you have a few drinks in you and start telling stories. Then you seem to remember all the crap you’ve blown up or broken over the years.
If you are like us, then hoist a few today and then let us know what the gnarliest carnage is that you’ve experienced in your hot rod or race car. And email us photos if you have them! [email protected]
