Default Track Carnage

I had to be towed off the track for the first time the other day. I was racing a ford lightning. I twisted off a u-joint in the front driveshaft and it was over. I should have been running driveline loops. The truck has to have them to race at a certified track anyways. I was on my sixth pass of the day. Truck was running hard, and I had won every race up to that point. This is just a heads up local track so Im not sure what kind of time it was putting down in the 1/8th.

It ripped up the transmission harness if anyone has one lying around that I could buy. Also it broke the oil return line off the housing of the transmission. I don't know what Im gonna do about that. I was gonna try to drill the cast out and try to tap it and put a fitting in there. I don't think you can weld that cast aluminum, but maybe someone could chime in on that and help me out. Here are a few other races from that day.
