Not only will these axles handle the horsepower, we have used different diameter chromoly axle bars on each side which will eliminate wheelhop.

Wheelhop at launch which can be extremely damaging to the drivetrain and makes getting traction very difficult.

The factory Camaro axles are made with different diameter axle bars, but the spline diameter is the same on both sides.

We have seen this before on stock axles such as those found in the Mustang Cobra, where the large diameter axle bar will taper down to a spline that is half the diameter.

This transition creates a weak point on the axle bar that cannot withstand increased horsepower.

Or even stock horsepower under certain conditions it seems.

So I need $2500 w/ installation axles, and a beefier TR 6060 output shaft.

Or just never smoke the tires.

Of course, GM will jump at the opportunity to void your warranty for these pieces as well.
