Wow, I've never had one break threw like that. I've always done it like in the picture. Guess I would rather it fail that way then when I'm driving. Willing to bet the feeling of your foot going to the floor wouldn't feel real good.

LOL. It surprised me, and ya, I suppose it could have been a bit rusty? Was like 2002 on a 1988 Ford 150.
