    That was awsome! At least now i know what a u-joint blowing up sounds like. I just had a little "motivation" and a killer song to get me all amped up and had to go do somthing so i figured why not go try to power break the caddy well i get on it and just as i open up the secondarys it goes TANG/BANG! I was like "bet that was that damn 1/2 ton ujoint at the t-case, SURE ENOUGH! I just couldent help but laugh!:haha: I dont know why maybe casue im partialy drunk but iether way its comady to me! And no i didnt leave the driveway after id been "motivated"

    well....

    Why do you think they call it "Power BREAKING"?????...:D ....

    I cant see the video,but I have a pretty good idea how that sounds!..been there myself with a 454 a few times...rrrr---rrrrrrrrrr--RRRRRRRR---WHACK!!!--RRROOOOMMM!!--CLUNK-Clunk- clunk....:blush: :doah: .......

    I remember doing a burnout once in an Olds Delta 88 with a 455 on the concrete pad at the boneyard just before we cut the motor and tranny out--had to see if it was any good you know!!..

    I power braked it, and did a cool burnout..just as it shifted into second I heard a big bang,and the driveshaft almost came thru the floor!..I figured the rear U-joint broke..but when I looked under the car,gear oil was oozing all over the place,and the PINION was still attached to the U-joint!...:eek1: ...WHOOPS!!..--good thing we didnt sell THAT rear end to anyone!..failed our "stress test"...:D

    nice.... :doah: you were partially drunk behind the wheel.

    atleast it was the u-joint/yoke and not the rear end.

I know i'll go power brake the truck!" Belive me drinking and driving as far as im concerned is a HUGE no no!
