And because of this..I now tow to events.
Lets think about the things that have gone wrong on the Camaro in the last 2 years....starting with Nats...
2008...my first year at Nationals: T2R (Rear Diff) goes BOOM as I turn into HPT. I had done 3 fluid changes on the rear up to that point in the season.Kills 1 axle shaft.
I also broke the rear torque arm x diff bolts. An 8" 1/2" extention makes a great replacement bolt in order to get home from an event.
1) Auburn Racer Pro Rear Diif Goes BOOM at Lincoln Pro
2) 2" 7/16-20 Bolt goes missing at Blytheville Tour disconnecting rear sway bar from body(And I check the bolt before EVERY event). Makes car undriveable and grinds 2 front hoosiers to dust (25 runs on them).
3) Welded porition of rear suspension goes boom at Blytheville Pro killing 2 BRAND NEW hoosiers and makes the car undriveable. I was the first person to have ever had a failure in this way.
4) Clutch Master/Slave go out...making car interesting to drive... (under repair at this time)
5) Rear lower control arm bushings go out at Toledo Pro...4300 RPM clutch "whoomps" make massive wheelhop and kill rear axle bearings.
6) I had fuel injectors to burn out/die on me as well...on a 69k car...gotta love it.
So for the last 2 years I have owned this car...it has either broken or rained or both at a national tour or pro...maybe this subie thing is starting to sound better and better.
