The camaro diff itself we haven't had trouble yet, and we are racing weekly a 630 wheel prochargerd car like your build. We have however snaps the bolts that hold the rubber carrier to the rear diff and driveshaft. We are working on some sort of option here, but nothing yet, and honestly we not sure just yet if this is going to be a common problem like the axles yet.

Regards

Which would take quite a few days of driving.
Thanks mtcwby....I think. It is good to know the correct pathophysiology to be preventative at best.

These axles are very similar in design to others we have used, they will hold up as good as anything available currently.

It is the frustration that we wish we all can avoid. I can't wait to hear about my inquiry. Glad you guys are on the front end of this and already working the bugs.

Still cheaper than a 12 bolt for a 4th gen.

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.
