When they broke (after the '68 had turned the corner) did the wheels stay on and was the emergency reaction you made to not crash something you could control , or was it just a Holy $%&& and foot off gas and grind to a stop ??

Sorry to read and see...

And to add a note, BMR's stubs are by FAR better than stock! Next up, the drive shaft breaking (or will it be the c.v.'s????? someone needs to start a Fatbitch relief fund)!!!!!
Awesome stub shafts:

About how much power are you pushing to the wheels? It seems that someone who didn't have as much "fun" with the goat as you, may not have any issues with these parts, huh?

Stub shafts for $449.99/ea.


Heavy Duty CV Shafts for $479.99/pr.


3" Aluminum Driveshaft for $779.99
3" DOM steel for $779.99
3.5" aluminum for $879.99
3.25" carbon fiber for $1279.99


Driveshaft Loop for $84.99



I added prices from TByrne's site and although its going to be an expensive fix, you can rest assured it wont happen again!

Best of luck to you and hopefully you can get back on the streets striking fear in those who challenge ya !!!

Very true, you can ask anyone who knows me personally, I drive the cars I buy like I believe they were built to and if sh*t breaks I upgrade and go on.... but yes if you don't drive the car "hard" then she probably won't break.

Yeah, I'm a BMR stocking dealer so that helps a ton, she was back on the road Sunday (had the stub shafts in stock), so all is well so far.
