A few weeks ago I went to the track , new tires NT05R 18's 315/45/18's in the rear .. track prep was great !

First pass i bogged off the line with 4200rpms ([email protected] 1.68 60ft), so after talking to Sleepdoc , he told me a trick to get the RPMS up.. (I am on a beta agressive cobb 006 lc2)

anywho.. I pull up for the second pass of the day, get the RPMs to shoot up to 6500 :) :rolf2: by the time I let go it was around 6300ish , tires grabbed and bam tire hop (no chance to let off) and axle snapped like hot knife through butter.. I new one day that tire hop would get me.

Thanks to Paladin in Las vegas who got me back on the road quickly !

enjoy the pictures..

Sorry to hear that happen. There have been aftermarket axels for a while now but I have heard of only a few breaks... One of which was overseas and posted about it a few years ago on nagtroc. Who is making this new set?

Honestly Tho the gtr is getting so fast its going to start breaking more with every new leap of power... I hope owners who are pushing these limits are prepared for it. I can't wait to see 8's!

That clean cut shows that a huge shear force acted on it

Good thing nothing else got damaged

So far the axles are the weak point

You want an axle to be the weak point. They are much easier to change at the track than transmissions.

And slightly cheaper!

So how much torque does that axle breaking car make at 6300 rpm?

6500 rpm launch is like a kamikaze pilot.... Fatal!

Hell, even Porsche PDK launches from no more than 5000 rpm! I think 4000 rpm is just fine!

Nothing a little duct tape and super glue can't fix... J/K. Tough break dude. Looks like hell of a clean cut

Well with no boost off the line I don't think it was alot.. Like I said a sticky track with sticky tires and wheel hop = broken something

I agree that is the weakest link and for 940.00 (without labor)
That Is the part you would want to go first not sure what would break if the axles held up..
