I don't know specifics, but I can tell you that they're all limited slip except for the V6 automatic.

The ratios are known but I don't remember them.

I just hope they're stronger then the last gen cts v and gto's, those were time bombs like the 10bolt that was on the 4th gen f-bodies. probably even worse lol.

There was a thread about it yesterday. I would recomend looking at the ZF diff in the G8. Thats what I expect them to use for cost and development purposes.

I think these will be more durable that the rear ends you've listed. If I remember correctly, GM will be using the same technology/techniques they are using on the ZR1 and CTS-V with regard to "tuning" the shaft diameters in the Camaro, to prevent oscillation which is what is atributed to a lot of axle failures. I'm sure we'll see companies out there that will offer rear end girdles, like they do for the GTO, that will help too.
