    I had been hammering on it earlier in the day but was just cruising when this happened. From the looks of it the bolt came loose that holds the big pin that runs thru the spider gears & let that pin drop out after that it was all over !

    What's the drivetrain? I see the slicks, skinnies and the hood.... Is she a little modified maybe?

    It is just a Mild 383 Stroker with a Turbo 350 and a 2800 stall & a 12 bolt rear with an Eaton Posi, Strange axles and a 373 Gear . Just a good little street driver
