My time has come... Yes, it's Friday afternoon on a race weekend and I am 
back home already. I seem to remember several of you guys telling me not to 
rev above 6000. If only I would have listened!

Prepped car, hauled it and the rest of the gear 650 miles to VIR. It went 
about 6 laps on the 8AM session on test day. Vibration started, I isolated 
it to the drivetrain. Instruments all read in the green, and I round the 
bent to the front straight. Slowly feed the gas and WHAP, thud, thud, thud...

Broke the crankshaft...  ;-)

The HS6's seemed to work really well though.

Not going to let that happen again.......    <grin>
