I was not saying the themostat was a much but for how cheap it is it cant hurt to get one. I know alot of guys on here use the 160 degree stat but its just up to the build and how good your cooling system is working. I was curious about the half shafts when they start to fail. I am sure it depends on if you track alot or not and how you are hooking up.

Axles seem to be the weak link. Wheel hop is usually the big culprit, follow closely by sticky tires hooking up. Ls3 seems to be way more prone to breaking things.

we have plenty of LS3's making 700+rwhp

proper fueling and tuning is a MUST. Along with a shop that has experiance with these types of builds and not just someone that wants to throw parts at your car and hope to make HP
