broke the lude today.

so i got my cv boots replaced. got my whole front end together after having to put in a new ball joint. tightend everything to the correct specs. painted my calipers put on my now black rims. pulled out of the drive way went about a mile down the road turned around. as soon as i hit 5200 rpm the vtec kick in point my passenger side axle snapped like a little tooth pic at the snap ring on the cv joint. luckely i didnt wreck and it didnt tear anything up that i know of. going to have to get a new axle tomorrow. will post pics of axle tomorrow when i tear it all apart for the 3rd time in less than a week.

Re: broke the lude today.

idk they were in the car when i got it i went to autozone today and ordered some new ones the where only 65 a piece i figure if im going to have the car up again i might as well put new ones on each side. i think the old one got hot or something cause ive never heard of it just snapping at the snap ring.

Re: broke the lude today.

i wish it was to fast for itself lol. the only time i have ever really went fast though is on the texas motor speed way. i hit 140. i never go that fast on the street though cause u never know when someone will pull out in front of you or when something will run across the road. i have to much time money and effort in my lude to wreck it. yall can laugh all you want but i actually cried when i wrecked my 87 si. :( i miss her!!!
