I have broken plenty of axles in the staging beams when I was supercharged. Now they break at about 40' out. No nitrous here, and my turbo is a 62mm.

I just ♥ that you two went from arguing over who was faster, to arguing over who breaks first.

You can thank this guy for resurrecting the thread:

//www.fiero.nl/forum/F...L/078413-3.html#p111

I obviously didn't see it the first time around and I don't always look at the dates in a thread to see how old it is.

I never argued back the who was faster part before

Us Michigan people have never broken a GM axle, and I dont plan on it. Matt has broken a 300m zzp input shaft from tire shake, but his GM axles held up.

Well I have broken a lot of GM axles in my career. Not so much the shaft, I have twisted one or two and shattered one, but mostly I break the tri-lobe bearing and have broken a lot more tripots. But not to fear my 300m axle shafts and 4340 ends (Porsche 930 style 6 bolt flange) are almost done.

Chris (Gforce1320) is making the half shafts for you, right? You'll love 'em, he does great work. I have his axles on my 04 GTO and they rock. Heck, you might be the one that powder coated it.

Stu, that is correct. It was different back in the 60e days but I have manual short axles on both sides now. I custom made my mounts to sit lower than the mounts I sell, and my trans sits right in the center so my axles are the same length. Coupled with how low my engine sits and how low my car itself is, requires some very short axles.

This is incredible stuff. History in the making. A time of 10.20 @135.75 with a V6 Fiero is a stunning achievement. Just goes to show that with the right technology incredible things can done and you've done them. You are the man!

I'm not sure the springs are powder coated. Those are Pedders springs, I don't know what kind of coating they use, but they feel sort of rubbery. The part that Fierox powder coated is the axle.

The event got rained out. Going to try again this next weekend. I have some strange transmission issue I am working out right now, but it shouldnt effect running at the track.

and I have been building another turbo car for some reason instead of working on the drag car. For some reason I feel content by beating a few loudmouths in town on low boost and all seasons a few weeks ago.

I failed to make it all the way down the track in the 2 passes I got over the weekend, so you have a few more weeks I guess.

My 1/8 mile is probably similar to yours, and I am only doing 1.7 60s still.... so you better try hard.

Brad, I meant to answer this question for you when I first saw it, then must have gotten side tracked.
I do some powder coating myself, and I hang the pieces in my oven with some stainless wire. Well, after the baking process, and things are cooled, I can take the wire that was hanging the part, and has cured powder on it for obvious reasons, and bend it in any shape I want, pretzel, backover on itself, you name it, that powder coat does not flake, peel, and I can not scrape off with my fingernail, now matter how hard I try. Try that with paint Powdercoat is pretty amazing stuff.
I did my front stock springs in Eastwoods reflective chrome to closely match my Q1 spring for the rear coilover set up on my Lambo kit. I'm very confident they will be fine.

If it was as cool up there as it was down here traction may have been an issue. Regardless I'd like to know how it went as well

Hmm, I just read the flyer and saw it was yesterday AND today, so he might have not even run yet. Either way, I'm really hoping that we see a 9-second pass.

But there is more than you are telling people. There are videos of you and x running fast times. X has gone balls out and put a TON of work into his car. You claim you have little money into your swap but have "trans work". I believe there is a lot more that you are not telling people. But hey, I have seen videos of your car run, there is no doubt it is a very fast fiero. So if you did do it super cheap then more power too you.
