My DS went boom!

I was at the local drag racing strip checking out all the burn out's the guys been doing so I decided to do the same since I heard people with D90's can smoke all four tires. I line up, lock diff, and the ARB's, and start to rev my V8 (yeah baby) and I dump the clutch, I was smoking my 37" tires like no other, then decided to do some 360's and to my amazing the rear coil overs and the front 3-link made the truck so stable and people were either cheering or could not believe there eyes..... I wish I have time to write more but I have to do some mountain biking before I pick up the kidos. 

I broke the shaft in Chinaman's at the last big obstacle. One week you climb like there is nothing there and the next week you almost lay the truck on it's side at the first try and break on the second :roll eyes

Tom Woods DS lasted two year before the CV started to go out, I had a local shop (Rocky mountain drive line) rebuild the DS and it only lasted 1 month and I had vib. after they rebuild it. Now Keith hooked me up with his non CV DS, letís see how long it will last. Any bets

That's going to be pretty hard to top Yousef. I have been thinking about entering one of those drifting competitions though....4 wheel drifting, yeah that's the ticket.

I hope he built it with at least 1350 unis instead of the 1310s. I'd like to see some burnout video as well!!! Did you break on the left side we were trying at the rally or the middle?
