Tonight I decided to take a run up the hill and enjoy the night. On my way down the backside, foot to the floor in 4th, approaching 95 MPH, about 150' from the braking zone, I hear a pop and feel a drop in power. I immediately let up and hit the brakes. Nothing. Well, there was something. The pedal felt like a rock. Oh shit. Both feet on the brake, one on top of the other, arms pulling back on the wheel, ass off the seat, shoulders about to push through the back rest, I *BARELY* get it down to 40 in time to understeer through the turn into the other lane, across the outside white line, into the dirt and grass, and *almost* not make it. Turns out, my brake booster hose got blown off the manifold from the boost. Yes, there was a spring clamp on it. Goddamn, that was close. I have *NEVER* come closer to wrecking on a public road than that. Tomorrow morning every hose on that engine is getting high pressure hose clamps installed. Screw these OEM spring clamps. Lesson learned: Things can get ugly in a hurry, and you need to be prepaired to react without thought, and until it's happened, you don't really know just how quickly and how bad it can get. This has lead me to decide to run a tech inspection on all the cars going up Rt. 17 in two weeks. If you're boosted, I want to see hose clamps on EVERY rubber hose attached to the manifold, among other things. If there's something I don't like, I'm not going to let you drive your car up the hill. No exceptions. You have two weeks to get ready. If you think it won't pass, fix it. I'm lucky. Luck eventually runs out.
