I broke the axle in my Redline over the weekend :-(

Never even heard of a fwd vehicle breaking an axle.

Don't ask how I did it.

Gives me a reason for a quaife :)

SRT-4s start breaking axles at 500whp.

Quaife wont help you not break axles.

what in the hell were you doing to break an axel. Have drag slicks and do a drop at 6000 rpms. This thing has axels that will hold to well over 400hp so what did you screw up.

Well i beat the hell out of my car all day long, doing races & slaloms. Then we were all burning out. and ....ugh.... all i can say is if you try and burnout at 6000 rpm... you might... cough... ugh.... break an axle

Wheelhop = bad. =)

A relative of mine sold me my Redline and mentioned they've gotten a few reports of broken axles due to wheelhop, usually from guys trying a bit too hard at the dragstrip.

What'd they quote you to fix it or is it a "warrantied replacement"?

warranty replacement. They even gave me a free rental car because they ordered a part and then they lost it in transit or something.

garland, your from my area. Is your redline electric blue, with the decklid spoiler and xm satellite radio?

I was behind one the other day in the colonial commons area, i reved at it, but i don't think he was paying attention!!

Next time throw something slick on the surface first before you try a burnout.
My car survived an "accidental" 4th gear burnout at about 4k.
