had a simular issue on left turns....turned out it was the emergency brake line on the right rear rubbing my 11.5 CCW rear wheel inner lip.....

learn to launch the car without traction control and stabilitrac on! Even when you launch it in comp mode its still more drive train strain bc its bogging the car down. Its such bull that these cars dont come with a beefed up drivetrain and people are breaking stuff. I just put drag radials on my car and it launches good on the street but im worried when i take it to the track!

Just broke the right rear half shaft on mine today. Left at 4K with LC on. Not at a strip, on old asphalt and cold tires. My vin's 49008. 3903 miles 2SS. Kooks exhaust and cold air plus custom tune. I'm totally shocked, and horribly disappointed in GM. Broke my heart to see it on the rollback. What's the story on mods. Anyone had their failures covered even with a mod or two?

I just came back from the local GM Dealer and the service manager's like this shouldn't have happened period. He could only shake his head. 1st axle failure he's seen. And my Camaro isn't a supercharged car. I called the Hendricks dealer in Charlotte where I bought the car and talked with John to see what upgraded axles they're putting in the Supercharged Camaro's and he told me they're all using stock axles. They're making over 600Hp and dogging those cars daily without a single failure. I also called Ricky at Steve Moore Chevrolet in Charlotte he's their ZR1 vette man and he's done a bunch of superchargers on Camaro's and he hasn't had any shaft failures. Both guys told me it was most likely just a bad bearing in the shaft. I saw the failed bearing and the shaft on the lift, and the shaft dia looks upgraded, maybe just a junk bearing like they've suggested.

I have question guys, I have some mods in my car I am expecting around 420-430RWHP!
I don't race from 0, I know my Camaro would be licking the street
Do I need to change the gears to 3.91? would it be worst than now?

thank you

Stick cars are much more likely to snap an axle during a launch from a dead stop when dumping the clutch at high rpm's than an automatic car. Both automatic and stick cars are susceptible to snapping axles when encountering sever wheel hop whether it be on the street or the track and whether it's on street tires or drag radials. This goes for totally stock cars also.
