I busted a rod last night..
153k miles on the motor with no real work done
I was going approx. 140mph :p :D :cool: at approx 5000 rpm?
when i made the mistake.. PUSH IT MORE! i put the pedal to the floor..the tranny dropped a gear to kick a boost........and
*SNAP* :eek: :confused: :confused: *tictictictictictictic* :confused: :confused: :confused: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:
15 miles from home and its close to 3 a.m. , with no cellphone .....oops... :rolleyes:
took almost 2 hours to get home going less than 5 mph... :( :(
I feel i was very lucky it still was running :rolleyes:
