Well, I finally got my gears and drive shaft installed! I really cant notice a difference because i have to give it a break-in period. I heard you had to give it a 500 mile break in but the guy told me just 50 miles. I'll prolly atleast give it 100. I'm going to the track this weekend, Wish me luck ! I hope to get in the 12's !

Both shops that have done gears for me said it's not really the mileage that you put on new gears it's the amount of heat cycles...

Get it up to full temp and then let it cool all the way down. That's a heat cycle. About 5 of those and you'll be fine for drag racing use.
