Hi
I think you may need a new one of those :D nice clean break though you might find a university engineering department who would like it as a sample piece! it really does demonstrate how areas of local stress develope into a full component failure and you can see how the cracks developed from the base of each spline and radiated out through the metal. . . still broken though!
Good to see the time slip you must be well chuffed and very close to the 10s. . .
Best regards
Mike
poppet valves rule!

Taller gearing certainly doesnt seem to have had a negative effect anyway.

Yeah the gearing seems ok.
I ran a lot of runs NA and most were 12.6 and a best of 12.51
Previous NA best is 12.41 so i can live with that 1 tenth. The car is so much nicer day to day.

Now whos got Dave Macs number? I think i may need to call for some proper driveshafts
