Strange S-60 w/ DSS Carbon Shaft & Level 5 Axles Install & Testing...
 
4 Attachment(s)
As some of you already know, Strange has come up with a new IRS housing for our Fifth Gen Camaro's that is a direct bolt-in unit, including differential poly bushings. Gear choices are basically all Dana 60 gears, starting at 3.54 and will come pre-assembled by Strange using their S-Trac, Truetrac, or Detroit Locker differential carriers.

Driveshaft Shop will be providing axles, and driveshafts for these units. If anyone with a 9" IRS wants to change over to the 60 housing, the axles should be a direct swap for this unit, the driveshaft works out to be about 2.5" shorter than the 9" so you can have your current aluminum one cut down & re-balanced for the application. This unit has the optioned chromemoly yoke.

I will have further information soon, including street & track testing on our in-house shop car.

I really like the fact that they will make the axles stubs to either the stock width of the 1000 and 1400hp and also the 9"

also the use of Factory style Spicer gears is priceless, factory quiet and also strong. just another option to consider......

So Frank this is a great option then for people that have the DSS Axles for their stock car. Another option along with the Hammerhead for reusing the factory-style replacement axles!

When will these be on sale?

Driveshaftshop 06-03-2013 06:15 AM

There just waiting on a few test cars, this one should be ready very soon.

And if I upgrade my axles first (to 1400HP from you) that fit my stock center section, I'll definitely have no compatibility issues when I replace the center in the future with one of these?

yes that's correct axles will both right up, if you have a Driveshaft it would have to be shortened 2.5"

That's awesome news.

Awesome. Running a dana 60 in a 408/88mm car with no issues. They are strong.

The 2010 Sin 06-07-2013 04:12 PM

assuming this will be in the 4-5K range for a setup like the other brands?

The rearend is installed.. Just waiting on some new prototype items from DSS and we'll be back on track :)

oachalon 06-21-2013 02:49 PM

Is this pretty much a Dana 60 modified to work in our camaros?

if so, awesome.

Inferno LSX 06-21-2013 03:04 PM

Why do I have to hate my 9" so much that I would consider spending money on this?

Ok our apologies guys that we have not have a good update in a bit... Got everything in from DSS including the prototype S60 axles, and the Carbon Fiber custom shaft for the TH400/S60 swap!

MANNYS2SS/RS 08-04-2013 09:45 PM

Looks great Matt.

V6owner 08-04-2013 10:13 PM

That all looks fantastic Matt! Keep it up!

Can't_C_Me 08-04-2013 10:14 PM

Now that is a clean install Matt looks great. Now when you are finished playing get some made for the V6. That shaft and axles looks like a must have.

That looks awesome!!

Matt @ FSP 09-18-2013 09:43 AM

Just a quick update... Rear has about 25 miles on it now. Working flawlessly, no gear whine at all. We should be turning this up by mid October and making some track passes. Will continue driving on street and keep everyone in the loop!

Matt @ FSP 10-25-2013 11:16 PM

YSi is on.. Time to kick up the boost levels and start track testing this beast!!!

Driveshaftshop 10-30-2013 06:43 PM

This diff has been released by Strange, pm me for some info on what we will be offering with the diff we sell, Axle update and some other things.....

orange10ss 11-07-2013 05:40 PM

so ur 1400 hp axles with bolt right in the dana setup? no mods to axles needed

Driveshaftshop 11-07-2013 06:34 PM

Strange custom made the stub for this, if you have our axles it can be done.

Turbo99 11-08-2013 09:26 AM

I left a message for you to call me Frank. I also tried FS&P but the phones are not working. I need some info ASAP my rear broke and I need to get something soon.
