Hey Unca Jim,

Sorry to hear about your halfshafts. Are you coming to the SVTOA "American Muscle" drag day on Oct 10th at Leb Valley?

Sorry to hear that Jim, seems like thats happening a lot lately. At least JDM was able to take care of you. I like the irs but this is the main reason Im getting things together to do the swap. :)

I heard the rear in the 04 Mach 1 is going to be a little different than the gt and last 03 mach 1. If this is true what's the upgrades?

Mike i really don't think they are much different..I'd upgrade the axles though.

Jim, Sorry to hear about the your halfshaft breaking that is why i keep launching like a fruitcake ;) Kudos goes to team JDM for arriving there quickly and fixing your car the same day! How did you launch your car differently when you ran your 1.72 60ft.?

Where did it break at Jim?

Did you just replace with stock or with different ones

Thanks Jeff
It was drivers side..I don't know what broke..JDM has stock shafts in stock..He told me he is waiting on better aftermarket shafts hopefully in a few weeks.

Wow! That's nearly identical to my broken half shaft story last spring! Even the missed 4th shift on what would have been my first 11 second run. :mad:
Glad you got back on the road so quickly...that's great service.

Sorry to hear it, Jim. Sorry to hear about the ALMOST 11-second pass too. Instead of a new best timeslip, you have a "the big fish that got away" story.

:lol :hammer

Hang in there, man. You'll get it!

This Friday I'm going to put in the 100hp nitrous jet and gun for my first 10.99 run providing that I can tow the car down to Leb Valley on a trailer (in case it breaks). Best so far has been [email protected] with the 75hp jet with crappy 60' times.

First, Jimmy, ole bud, you rock! Don't let it get you down. Hell, you don't let much bother you, so just go with the flow, and soon you'll be where you want to be.

2nd, MJ, if I don't see a video of that 10.99 run, then we'll have problems! TAKE THE VIDEO CAMERA!!! ;)
