After my 1st couple passes at the NMCA event I kept feeling something funny in the car but didn't think too much about it till this Sunday when I unloaded the car for the 1st time at the track and went to do my burnout..
I head this POP after I felt the rear end like it was swaying and then a grinding for a few seconds as I started to get off the burnout.. I thought the DRs were just really gripping.
The damage to the end is not the problem as that happened at the very end of the burnout when the bolt broke it seems and the upper tension link bent...or the tension link bent and it broke the bolt... chicken before the egg kind of thing.

Ouch!. I'd be checking the rest of the bolts Nathan. I highly doubt it broke. BTW, did ya notice your end link was bent?.

The bolt broke Cam, got to find it in the trailer but they picked it up off the water box.
I wasn't even going to post this but some South Carolina guy from the boards said if I didn't he was going to tell everyone about my secret nitrous install and the 2nd stage turbo I have under the dash so I put this up here to keep him quite.....

Damm Canadians always thinking they are smarter than us....
well if it was longer, id say hockey stick, just enough of a curve to it. LOL. hopefully you get to the bottom of this. i have yet to see a bolt snap.
WOW Nathan, That could have been a disastrous thing. Actually, good thing you had a slow run. I hate to think of the results of loss of control at the end of the track
