Saw your guitar video...........cool.
He probably had one of those drive shaft security devices welded in with the bolt-on lower loop. From the looks of the size of those tires... it must have been a pretty beefed up Camaro there. I s'pose this could easily happen if the bolts that secure the traction arms to the axel housing shear off all at once, or somebody forgets to put some or all of them back in after doing some sort of rear end work in the pits like changing the ring and pinion from a street ratio to a track gear set-up. Thinking about that... it could happen very easily and that might also explain why they didn't catch it in the inspection proscess.
Did you hear what the driver said...???
