I have an 8.8 rear end with new bearing and a 373 gear...

Ive launched much harder than that on it too... three season counting... I hit it with 200 at the tree the otherday, and it held but its starting to make some huritng sounds...

The motor prolly makes nearly 600 to the tires launched everyweekend at the track.... prolly 800-900 passes on that rearend and 125K miles before that.

I've put down some 1.4 60s down on 28 spline axles. Didn't last all that long though... Eventually shattered the spline area.

88 GT CHI headed 351w 10.8 @ 125 - still figuring it out.
03 Cobra 2.3 whipple 10.7 @ 129 - sold it
04 Mach 1 12.7 @ 109 mostly stock - sold it
89 LX procharged 302 515 hp 497 ftlbs 10.7 @130 mph - sold it
