Don't you just love last minute details that end up ******* up the weekend? Sorry to hear bout the turbo, but sounds like you still had s fun NA time, until your stall... that's one reason I love hauling mine because one of these days I'm gonna fold a rod. Sweet tow pics... we all have 'em>>

Looks like its time to either reinforce splitter more... or stiffen up car or something. Then again... it getting that close to the ground does help I guess....
