    I did. The very next pass, it snapped right on the launch.

    But it was because of the diff carnage.

    The real carnage was Kelly installing a stock d/s the next morning after tying one on...something about being hung over, on your back and in a confined space...had to swallow it back down a couple of times, lol.....:help:

    So Kelly's shaft was too hard and it snapped after busting up a rear end?

    First s550 thread I've been on, hilarious, minus the damage to the car obviously. Time to go take out a huge loan for an s550 GT!
