hardened halfshafts?

Now that I have 660rwhp and 612rwtq I need to look at putting hardened halfshafts on and was wondering if anyone else has replaced the factory ones yet and if so what brands did y'all use and are they holding up to the punishment? I would also like to know if y'all changed out the gears in the rear end as well.

I know once I put slicks on my car and it hooks up that the stock halfshafts arent gonna last to long. thanks in advance

Sounds like a broken axle until he gets that worked out. Don't forget the one piece drive shaft.

Uncle Robin runs the stock rear axles with slicks on his 6XX rwhp LSA powered camaro. and he's cutting 1.60 60's with slicks...

There are several companies making stronger half shafts. Hennessey makes some and I can't think of the others. Since you're close to ADM and TSP, i'd check with them to see what they recommend.

Uncle Robin is a professional! His launch was one of the smoothest I have ever seen. The front end just picked up and the car motivated forward smoothly without any bumps or jerks. Thats why he can run stock axles.

Just to be clear. My car has now run a best 60' of 1.56 on M/T 18" Radials.

It ran back to back 1.57 this weekend at the LSX Shootout. Best ET to date is a 10.76. I ran a 10.81 and a 10.84 at the LSX Shootout.

Trans is a trick 4L80E with a 2.75 first gear ratio. Also we have a Pro Torque Converters 4000 RPM Stall built to leave soft with the DR.

Rear is all stock. Bushings gears and half shafts are all stock.

Shift points are programmed in the controller. All I do is stab and steer.

Robin

We've got a perfect track record, nobody has ever broken a set of our Camaro axles

Give me a call if you want to talk about axles.

Thanks

We recommend, use, and sell Gforce axles and their other products. Stock axles will only last you so long, we broke our stock axles launching our 535HP 2010 Camaro the first time out at the track with the TVS 2300. If any of you guys are looking for any of the GForce stuff give me a call and we can get you setup.
