Hey all,

As some may have read that my alternator was having problems. I went out and bought another 2nd hand one from the wreckers and it seem to fix the problem... now coming up to now I had one small thing that happened... now I was turning into a street and wanted to beat this car so i put my foot down a little and all my power seemed to drain my radio turned off and my dash flickered a little and the engine was funny... i slowed down and it never did anything else.. now yesterday i tried overtaking a truck that just decided to stop in front of me quickly.. so i put the foot down and same thing happend but I blew my Main fuse...

Has anyone got any clew on what it may be? obviously it is an electrical issue but where?
