    Too much wheel hop

    Back in the summer of 2016, I was out with my buddy creating havoc in my SC. It was mostly stock but could still lay a nice burnout. So him and I decided for our last burnout, he’d record it. What he ended up recording turned out hilarious now but made me cry back then haha. I snapped the slip yoke into the tranny which busted off a piece of the tail shaft extension housing on the trans. Luckily I had bought a 5 speed parts car so had a spare tranny. Have not done a burnout in it since

    I think something else was off at that time. It didn't even have time to start wheel hopping.

    But I guess you were doing burnouts before that happened that may have fractured it.
