Of all the lots that you could do donuts in, you choose the one that's a popular weekend hangout spot. The cops kick people out enough as it is--leaving a bunch of rubber behind will only exacerbate the issue.
I showed up to an event in Detroit - Motor City Mayhem/Michigan Gumball. Drifting, stunt bikes and drag racing. There were professionals putting on the show.
Later in the evening during the drag racing event there was a big block Roadrunner tearing up some rubber and I made a slight hint about how I'd like to get my car out there. That somehow quickly turned into the announcer yelling over the microphone "Miata VS Road Runner!".
I was like FML no way. This purpose built drag car was on slicks and had his exhaust dumping just after the headers... Not sweet. I'm on 225 street tires and get no traction until 3-4th gear most times..
First run I tried to get him to run from a roll and he didn't quite understand the concept. Second run I wheel hopped through 2nd and missed third.
Third run I was slipping through 3rd but dusted him!
Car had a nice little squat off the line... Still no traction.
Then Saturday I hit the drag strip. I showed up and a friend of mine was going to let me borrow slicks.. The 14 inch steelies wouldn't clear my brakes though! I gave it a go on street tires.
The first run was alright. Got to the line and rolled out a little slow for fear that I was going to blaze the tires. The thing actually hooked pretty well and I ended up bogging the start (didn't use anti-lag). Ignore my buddy Scott.. His 10 second Evo makes my car look like a DOG!
Ended up with a 12.1 pass. Trap speed was 115 with a 2 second 60ft.
Second run.. I broke an axle. The burnout box was about out of water and as soon as it snagged the axle snapped. - That's my second axle in two weeks.. Not great. But at least is was the opposite axle.
I think the car has a mid to high 11 second pass in it.
We pushed the car off to the side and I bought another Axle that night. Had it in the car in 20 minutes and drove the bitch home..
My axle repair box:
The second axle broke almost identically to the first one.. Looks good next to my connecting rod keychain.
Are you using stock NB axles? If you are you might consider trying some MSM axles if you keep breaking them. BTW sick videos, you always put on a good show.
Wouldn't he also need an MSM Torsen to work with the axles? It would suck to have to rip the diff apart again (for us normal people), but Im sure this mother f*er would just do it in his spare time after work one day
