Holy crap thats pretty scary. I'd like to see where your driveshaft is routed under your car and how the fuel tank and e-brake cable are arranged. Sounds like a similar setup to my car and that doesnt look fun. I didnt realize plastic bags could do that.

How the hell is a plastic bag going to cause the tires to lock up? All the video shows is a loud snap followed by the telltale pitterpattering of a rear axle that doesn't want to rotate.

Sounds like you snapped an axle? Unless this is you. In that case wtf just happened?

Bagged wrapped around the drive shaft and worked it's way down till it hit the connecting bracket where the ebrake splits from one to 2much lines. It twisted it and pined it between the drive shaft and underbody which engaged both wheels ebrake locking them at speed. Just hurt the tires and clutch since I drove it off the interstate like that to get some where to lift it safely.

Ah, got it. Man, that must have been one tough bag to be able to pull the parking brake and keep it somewhat locked.

Wow, murphy's law eh? That sucks though, what are the odds...

Glad you didn't crash it into something like your average joe would have. Also, no drone at cruising speeds with your exhaust? I like that.

The drive shaft kept it locked I had to use the tire iron and my buddies lead hammer from his knock offs to beat it back around to the right position. What I don't understand is how it got pinned the way it did. The driveshaft spins clock wise right? It was pinned low part on the left side high part on the right side of body.
