Twisted drive shaft, Drag racing

I twisted the driveshaft friday night out at quakercity drag strip in OH. I am running goodyear slicks and it hooked to hard. I am trying for 12sec 13.50's are the best I got so far.

Ouch! I suppose that causes a wee bit of driveline vibration...!

On the other hand, it's sorta cool that a 4-banger did that!

To be safe, check the rear end, and trans tailshaft bushing, especially the seals.
