Yup, I'm guilty for it.

I drift but not with my Z. I drift a 1984 Pontiac Grand Prix.

Here it is:

Awesome. Glad to hear there are some fellow sliders here. That Grand Prix looks like a beast, very cool.

I had an interesting event last weekend...

Snapped a lower control arm in the middle of a 50+mph drift.

Ack...how did that happen? I thought the Z was built for the twisties, and figured that included going sideways. :doh:

Good question...like I said it was sliding perfectly around 50mph or so and I just heard a loud boom. came to a stop and this is what I found:

Fortunately, I was only about 10 minutes from my shop and was able to go grab another one and fix it right on the track. Only lost about 90 minutes.

that sucks. i'm no mechanic, but i'm pretty sure the wheels aren't supposed to go that way. do you have any action shots of you drifting?

Yeah...you are correct.
