2nd trip down the track

So i hooked to the sled for the second time this yr that i have had the chance to get to since putin the Chevy back on the road. 5 trucks showed up for the 7000 and under class. I rolled across at 6985 and was one of the heavier in the class. 3 dodges, a Duramax, and me. I had a good pull goin til about 205 when my rear yoke spread apart and let my rear driveshaft go flailin in the wind. once i stopped i was at 219, so im pretty sure i had a good run goin up til the rear yoke gave out. The only thing im really pissd about, is i let a Dura**** beat me. I did end up drivin the truck off the track but now im waitin for a 1410 rear yoke and an altered driveshaft to fit the bigger yoke. So i hope the next time i have better luck cuz i dont want another Dura**** to beat me, so thats 2 dodges, 1 ford, and 1 dura**** that have beat me. here is the vid

Looked like a good pull going there Nick... you still made some decent progress on the front axle alone after things broke!!

If you pull it much, you'll keep finding weak links... just gotta hope that they don't start turning out to be expensive parts!!!!
