I put my e-brake on after a session at the track and now my **** don't work properly. Overall braking has been crappy since then.

Not at a track but a back road at 7/10ths. I heard a clunk. Oh ****! I skrate stripped one of my end links, it was only on 2 threads. All I need now is a left handed tap.

Both my fault. JDM out.

You broke one or are you referring to TSB?

I broke one on Friday at a lapping day. Lost 4th gear, there's video of it in my build thread.

Just spun the hell out of one of my rod bearings at an open test and tune day at TWS. I missed my downshift and overreved it. I thought I got it in time, because I didn't even let the clutch out all the way, but no dice. 1/2 lap later it was making all kinds of noise. Guess the motor was just tired as it had 250k miles on it.

how much power? Sorry to hear about this. Maybe we all need to buy Quaife gear-stacks from Autotech?

Somewhere just over 300 whp. I'm not a fan of Quaife anything, so I'm not sure what to do yet.

Sheared and Fused Lug Nuts
Lost a couple lug nuts (new wheels and nuts)
Oil Starved and spun #3 bearing due to magically disappearing oil (rebuild with non-OEM gaskets, no problems DD'ing the car previously)
Uneven tire wear (Hallett really abuses the passenger front going counter-clockwise)
Lost magnetic numbers/letters (not a big deal, but I did pay for them and I did lose them)
Destroyed a set of HP+s in 3 HPDE sessions.
Cracked rotors
Boiled fluid
Bent crossmembers (that was related to a fun off-road excursion in a not-so-smooth area of the run-off)
