392 chally vs my 2010 ss

i was all set to race my brother in the mopar/chevy smack down....
his car is stock 392 srt8 6 spd, with 28x10 hoosiers.

my car is s/c and traction goodies, and 20" dr's.

we both did a great burnout, and set the tree...and were off.....

uh, one of us was......

he blew an axle.
chevy wins, that is as it should be!

i told him a 5k launch was silly, as i launch at 11-1300.

anyone have any ideas as to how fast our stock axles will take us?
ive gone 11.48@119.66 on stock stuff...

Thx, I took out my axles and checked the splines, and they don't appear to be twisting.
I cant help but think I'm close to the limit!

He was silly to race you if you're running 11.48. That's a full second faster than most 392 challengers. he blew an axle for nothing.
