Thank God this didn't happen on a track! :)
Strange Feel in the Chassis.
Strange Feel in Steering.
After a few minutes:
Engine Fan contacting shroud.
Right Engine Mount (not the rubber-liquid mount) failure. As you can see in the photo, it a was quite extensive falure. :)
Oh crap. Thats bad. Engine Resting on Steering Rack... Time to remove the front end. Hmm I could do this too... and this... and this... ...
New Engine Mount, New Rubber engine mounts, new (to me) reinforced (by me) subframe (ooh! its so pretty! :D), new control arms, new control arm bushings.
Thoughts on the mount breaking? Anyone seen this before?
