    So, I got to try the new stage 2 engine tuning on the grand Marshall and I took off the front brakes for derbying. I found that when I used the brakes while it was in gear, the drive Shaft would snap. I thought I must have hit something so I tried it again, and watched the entire axle and housing slowly rotate forward and the drive shaft broke. I'm no genius, but that seems a little fishy. Any word on this?

    Oh and I really enjoy the new setups. Great motors for derbying and the welded rear ends hook up pretty well.

    Come on dude. You've been with us long enough to know about searching for issues. Well known.

    either have less torque there (lower power of engine or higher gear) or decrease brake capacity

    Yeah, I looked in this section instead of bug reports.

    And, no, that was my first time in game since April, so I didn't get a chance to find this out.
