Update 11: The car was on a pass!!! Unfortunately the rear differential had other plans. We're headed back to Real Street Performance to assess the situation. The goal is to hit the track tomorrow(Friday), but it may be Saturday if we have to next day air parts. We're down, but not out!

Orlando World Speedway.

I'm not exactly sure why they traveled all the way there. Must be an event this weekend or something.
