    Thumbs down wow complete destruction of my drive line

    so fourth run at the track i warm my tires... set up for the launch second yellow turns i let it loose at 2100 rpms and i here nothin but bangs under me.. couldn really see that night but i got it on the rack and pulled the diff cover.. complete destruction.... its seized.. my drive shaft is snapped in half.. and my torque arm is ripped off the tranny.. so the moser twelve with eaton posi 33 splines 1350 yoke and 3.73's is on order im not sure wat happened with the torque arm its in perfect shape but i dunno if its gojn back on the tranny so i might as well do the relocation kit im thinkin umi i heard bmr sits to low.. and perhaps a spohn exteme duty driveshaft.. im still tryin to figure wat happened im guessin rear end seized then the whole rear torqued forward snapped the torque arm off and snapped my driveshaft... some guy in the shop thought he was cool and snickering that im a dumb ass kid droppin the clutch at 6000 rpm's i lit a fire under his ass for bein a prick.. but ne ways sorry for the novel but i was wondering wat with th relocation kit i should do

    Sometimes when the rear goes boom it'll take the stock aluminum driveshaft with it. You're lucky it didn't take the tranny too. The spohn driveshafts look good for the price. I have an A-1 custom steel ds ($300) and a Strange 12 bolt/Mcleod clutch. Launching at 5,000+ on ET Streets is fun.

    Stock tranny. Still have stock torque arm too. Lookin to get a Spohn tranny mounted, had a Spohn chassis mounted and it was extremely noisy. Sold that. Only thing that worries me with tranny mounted is the thin aluminum mount.
