Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Congrats on the award! Saw Kenneth's postings on FB over the weekend, was the input shaft you broke a billet one or anything special? Strange how clean it broke.

Sorry I didn't answer the question. It was a stocker believe it or not. First one I've ever broken. The guy that loaned me the clamp to pack the drum said it showed evidence of being cracked for awhile. It takes a good shock coming out of the burnout and it hits high gear pretty hard. I'm not sure how many runs were on it but I cant complain.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Thanks Monty. I have to talk to National Dragster today for the Featured Flyer write up. Hopefully it turns out good. One of the last ones they did I counted over 500 words in it. I've been working on it since yesterday. It's easy for me to tell my story but I don't think they want 2000 words though. lol

I guess now you'll play 'What's Next' for the weak link in the driveline. 🙄
