Was just cruising down Central Ave here in Phoenix yesterday afternoon. Did have a bit of noise coming from somewhere in the drivetrain when I backed off on the throttle but nothing seemed imminant until . . . BAMMMMM. The little red spider jumped and bucked and out the side mirror I saw little pieces rolling out from under the car and across the roadway. Skipping the wait for the platform tow I will say I noticed that the rear of the driveshaft was hanging loose and the whole front part of the diffy was missing and everything smelled of gear lube. Got the car delivered up to my Alfa mechanic (Auto International) and still waiting for the news to get it fixed. Bummer, first real prob with the quad.
