Just enough torque to get the car to the scene of the accident.
That would be disappointing. Normally things like that happen on Monday when you're on your way to work - to set the trend for the week.
I'm pretty sure that is a broken axle. When you triple or quadruple the engine torque and grip the pavement with drag slicks and traction compound you're exceeding what the stock driveshafts and axles were designed to do. Al_in_Ottawa
