Dam Autocrossing in Super street mod. More often than not every weekend something breaks. Here is a partial list of crap that broke this year. Not including all the money spent to just make it faster.

Rear axle twisted in two.

Front wheel bearing exploded

Alternator started putting out 20 volts.

Turbo charger cracked.

Rubber piece got cought in alternator/water pump belt causing it to jump shread and take out both cam and crank sensor.

Quaife transmission had 5th gear seize on output shaft doing a burnout for a ProSolo.

This doesn't include $4000 in repairs to my tow rig for two road trips. Dodge cummins TPS sensor and dodge 5speed manual transmission.
