Wave- trac trashed 1st time at the track

I talked to Xtreme Innovations today about the white 2010Camaro with straight axle conversion and Craig said the 1st time they went to the track they broke the wave-trac and bent the 1/2 wheel studs. Good thing is has a lifetime warrenty. Didnt even have slicks on it.

The warranty is why I spent the extra money to put one in my 9". Otherwise I would have just put a spool in it. Any more details other than bent wheel studs and a trashed diff? What kinda power? Raceweight?

Would be nice to have all the details instead of Craig said we trashed the diff and bent some wheelstuds. I'm not saying its impossible to break a wavetrac. But something other than a high powered launch may be at work here. What did the axles look like? Pics of said carnage would be great

You out of all people know it isnt cheap if you want done right the 1st time. Save a buck now or spend more later.

Oh trust me, I definitely know all about the $$$ it cost to get stuff done right and Craig at Xtreme Innovations is a true craftsman and has skills like no other. I cant say it enough, when people see my cage, it is pure amazement and everyones first comment is "its a work of art". Anyone who has ever seen Craigs work knows what I am talking about. I would love to do the solid 9" but at this time it just isnt worth extra money from the bulletproof 9" IRS I have now. Its amazing how far IRS has come in terms of drag racing and how fast these cars are running with IRS. I will be at Indy for the LSX Shootout and I think the car that Craig did the solid 9" will also be there. I know Craig himself will also be there as he is working with me on setting up my suspension as he also hooked me up for suspenion as well.
