Okay, I'm looking for scary suggestions on what I might have damaged or broken last night . . .
Basically, it was the first chance I had had to really give the car a good boot off the line since the 5 spd conversion, and as it turns out, was a little too enthusiastic and *cough* over-cooked it somewhat
Had fairly large amounts of axle tramp, followed by a large bang from the back of the car, then normal launch . . . (am struggling to remember if it tramped any more after the bang)
Was fairly alarming (initially thought the wheel must have jagged the body somewhere), but after pulling over for a look, couldn't really spot anything out of place.
The only thing I could spot, was the bolt that secures the rear sway bars was bent (I *think* moreso than previously - It was definitely bent beforehand from a previous experience with an unpainted silent cop at night - curse you RTA
I'm a don't believe that the car / suspension could move enough to jag this bolt on the ground, so I'm wondering if there are any other suggestions ?
My only other thought was that I had done something to the diff, however I can't hear any unpleasant sounds, and it still seems to be doing the job (but I have almost nfi when it comes to diffs). . .
Everything else that I can see looks ok . . . so before I drag it up to get it checked out, are there any theories as to the cause ? (oh yeah, tis an EL XR8)
