Talking Broke the Rear End in My Chevelle

I haven't ran my Chevelle at the Track in about 5 years. I built this new 350ci street motor last year and figured I would go see what it would do. The car has always been tuff on rear ends It weights 3840 with out me in it . So its on the heavy side .The drag slicks were about 7 years old . You can tell by the video it wasnt getting much smoke.It wasn't hooking real good until the 7th pass.Pow


Sorry there slow to load

As with any race car you always find the weakest part first. Once the rear is fixed you'll find something else to break. Like the driveshaft or trans.
