Strengthened Driveline

OK, we all see that there are some problems with the driveline. That makes me HESITATE to upgrade. Lets get the best minds together--WHAT IS THE 99.9% solution to having a bulletproof driveline at the 750 HP level? Jannetty, ADM, Lingenfelter, etc, GIVE IT YOUR BEST SHOT!! What and how Much!! Thanks!!!

Supporting mods are always necessary, no one builds their cars to handle double the factory power numbers. GForce 4340 axles and a clutch upgrade would be the first two things I would look into.

Here are my thoughts on a bulletprof upgrade to handle 750 flywheel HP MAX:

Level I upgrade:
I would obviously go with a new clutch, probably the RAM, upgraded tranny fluid, and 1000HP axles.

If you have any thoughts of really beating on the car or upping the power to a higher level:

Level II:
RAM clutch, fluid upgrade, cryo tempering of the trans internals, poly couplers, 1000HP axles...and if you plan on changing gear ratios I would use an entire new housing like the 9inch.

That is my thoughts. In case you wonder why I said RAM... I have tried a coupel clutches and so far the RAM holds like crazy and it drives like stock. I am also running amsoil fluid, and fidanza clutches in case anybody was curious... I am not just making this stuff up, I am using it!!

So in general, you believe the stock ring and pinion is up to the task <750 hp? I did a 4.10 Gear swap, I know a FEW folks had some issues but mine sems stout. Thoughts? I just want it to be just about as reliable as stock with a few mods at the 500-600 hp level... Thanks for your input!!!

If you only have 500-600 rear wheel horsepower, then you really only need axles and a clutch. If you want to make sure you eliminate wheel hop which will break things quickly, replace toe rods, trailing arms and bushings. As far as driveline goes, with that power level you are fine with axles and clutch. I had 850hp to the rear wheels and replaced all that I have mentioned and nothing broke. I am now going up in power ALOT more and will be replacing driveshaft, trans and rear diff completely. 500-600hp in these cars is easy to achieve and alot of the problems people have breaking stuff is from driver error such as dumping the clutch and wheel hop which will snap stuff like pretzels.

I Have 742 HP At The Rear Wheels With Stick Shift. My "Jannetty Racing" Differential Has A Wonderful Relationship With The Big Horsepower.

I Would Give You Details Of The Jannetty Racing Differential, But I Was Sworn To Secrecy (Its An Italian Thing ).

Our 4340 race axles will handle 750hp no problem.
You could also up-grade to our 300m axles if you want something that you won't ever have to worry about down the road when you start putting down 1000+hp.
We also have spools and big 35 spline stubs if your not worried about street driving everyday.
We will have our 9" IRS done soon too. Lots of options under one roof

Give me a call if you have any questions 316-733-2100

Thanks
Chris

Honestly......I believe there are a few other things that have been over looked here. For one, what kind of Driving are you plaining on doing with the car. I can tell you that there are a lot of drive line issues with the cars and we are running less HP than stock. Of course, these are not daily drivers, but if you are going to be a reg at any even, weather it is drag racing on test and tune days or track day evens at your local road course, you really need to dig deeper that what has been mentioned here.

Don't want any of the sponsors here to get upset with this post. I am not trying to sell you anything. Just making sure you cover all your bases.
