Even though Pedders tests all of our products on the track, the emphasis for our parts, when we look at all spectrums, performance, comfort, noise abatement, durability, we are focused for serious aggressive street applications, that just happen to work on a Track as well.

Thank You for the info, Mike. Yes, the axles were a known weak link right away. Luckily, I have a company that is making HD axles for me. It's that 2 pinion spider and 8.6 ring gear have me more than a little nervous. Robin thinks Eaton is going to build a better center section. The stiffer bushings/cradle that you have though are a necessity... Thanks.
