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.

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.
