Another set of Richmonds blown away...

I have had both gear sets.... both Richmond and both Broke after about 3k miles. (just blew out the 433's on Friday) With a naturally aspirated 600 HP, the 411's were fun, but the 433's were much better.... shifting distance was not much different either... with the 433's she still runs 2150 rmp down the fwy @ 80mph. In any case good info above, can't really afford to put a 5K Strange pumpkin in the car right now, so still looking for the hardest gear set I can get. Especially since the last change out I also did the carrier set and went to solid bushings... I've talked with a few old school drag racers and they tell me the gears are much stronger (durometer) when you get to the 456 and 488 range.

Are you planning on upgrading anything else in the rear? If not, you'll probably keep breaking whatever you put in there. I don't think they even make 456 or 488's.
