    All I can say is wow, just wow.

    And by the way- even at my age coming off a couple grand wasn't easy! Hell, I've got a wife, two kids, a mortgage, car payments, insurance, student loans, and every other bill known to mankind. I'm pretty sure when it comes down to it, my left-over income now is no different than when I was 22!

    We raced back in the early '90s at a dirt track. A car lost an axle on turn two and it went bouncing over the wall and down through the pits. The wheel and axle ended up going across the entire pit area. I thought for sure it was going to kill someone.

    And therein lies an excellent reason to have disc brakes on c-clip axles
