Hi guys,

Either I got a bad part or did something seriously wrong with my one-way.

I had it in the car for all of 3 laps before I tapped a wall and one of the outdrive cups just absolutely shattered. I had just bought the damn thing, and big surprise, the parts for it are all backordered. So much for that.

I built the thing totally to spec, and I made sure that the screws were not over-tightened and everything. The only thing I did was add some lube to the one-way bearing but I don't see how that could possibly have caused this. A bunch of other guys at our track have been running the one-ways for a week now with no problems.

Anyway, just had to vent. For those 3 laps, the car did handle pretty well
