    Well, the turbo civic is driveable.

    Decided to take it for its first run....

    That side (DRVR) had a "brand new" napa axle, otherside was autozone.

    Shit snapped as soon as I hit 4 psi. Peice of shit, I didn't even "launch" it.

    Now I'm fuckin pissed.

    if it was new, there should be a warranty. just go get it replaced and be done with it

    how many horses you pullin becuse these napa axles are stock rebuilds not pro poformance that you need if you have high horse power motor. same thing as using a geo metro axle on a mack truck get the consept. get some good ones thell give you less hasle and headache in the long run.

    You should invest in some Gators or Raxles. If you're pushing a signifigant amount over stock, you're def going to need better axles if you don't want to be replacing them every weekend.

    that guy is from colorado, he's running a 10.9 on axles bought from autozone or napa. they have a lifetime warranty, but no he doesnt break them all the time.
    that 10.9 is a mile above sea level too... :ph34r:

    I thought it was kinda amusing, I only made it like 400 ft out of my driveway.

    I had to push it back to the driveway by myself and then up the driveway with the prelude.

    I'm hoping they take the shit back. When I finally pull it out I'll take a pic of it if I have time.
