    I was supposed to get my car dyno tuned tomorrow. but I had installed my nitrous kit last night and really couldn't wait to use it. I just bought some micky t's DR's last week so I took them out for a test trial on a stretch of dead road behind my house. Well I wa sjust testing my launches. I have the micro switch that hit the nitrous under WOT. so I came out pretty good and gave it a punch ( nitrous by the way is fucking awesome) and screamed about an 1/8 mile then turned around and "staged" again just trying to get my launch right. This time I tried to leave at almost 4500 and I dead hooked and then " clunk" and I probably over revved the motor when I pushed the clutch in knowing something was wrong. I looked under the car and my stupid driveshaft is laying there busted at the u joint.
