I saw a T2 007 snap the rear bulkheads off on Saturday. It ripped the shock tower off the car, but instead of the CF shock tower braking, the bulkheads snapped just below where the shock tower bolts on. Yes, it was a hard hit, but it wasn't 50mph into a concrete wall. It was probably 20 into a wood wall.

With all due respect JK I really doubt that...I have seen many T2'007 slam inot concrete parking side walls down the straight at full speed over 45mph and over shoot sweepers and hit the side walls...some walked away unharmed with only tweak issues to fix, others have broken a hub, arm, shocks popped off, or bent bulk head- but snapping them off? I have yet to witness such carnage on any car...

Sorry, they are snapped off. He called me looking for parts on Saturday because I was down at the shop racing. Unfortunately they didn't have any in stock.

It always amazes me when people say stuff is impossible just because they haven't seen it in person.

Imagine how long the list of impossible things must be for some people.

Default you go girl

it's no wonder pw is seeking higher ground. schumacher will be hard pressed to find someone with half of the qualifications that pw had/has. in the two years working with him, it appeared to me quickly, that he was over qualified given his usual daily routine. for me personally, i hope that he stays close enough to schumacher/on-road that i will continue to have the pleasure of meeting up with him at the national races.

paul - i wish you luck in your next move. may you be used for your talents, and rewarded proportionately.
