What about the Corvette guys? What are they doing to support high power?

Just wondering but it seems frustrating to feel stuck in a box for now and not have any choice.
Maybe even a solid axle conversion...

If it could be done, I'd be willing to take the slight hit on ride quality & handling in favor of a bulletproof solid axle that doesn't hop.

Not a Corvette Rear End - dang

I guess you guys answered my question. I was hoping it was a C6 rearend, and there were already mods available. Sounds like that is not the case (no pun intended)...

All gear vendors here this - 4.10s hurry up!

there's a handful of shops that are already doing SRA conversions. but most arent planning on marketing it as a built to order kit. time will tell tho

from the looks of things with this rear, you wont be swapping just the gears themselves. you'll be swapping the whole diff center section to make things easier

I agree since it would probably cost that much for a shop to replace the gears and install the diff... a whole unit should be a bolt in deal that some of us can do.... The vette rears are about the same until you start going up in performance/strength...
