Had a 67" Camaro dragracing bracket car called Sledgehammer, beautiful car, white, red and black with words sledgehammer on the quarters and actual sledgehammer on the doors with contingency stickers placed where they should be. That car put so many people on the trailer over the years it isn't funny. Wish I had some pics of her but lost everything in hurricane of 2005.
 
Haven’t updated this for quite some time...

Today we finally received the long awaited metal diff cups! Ordered these back on October 11th 2020. 😱 only took a few days shy of 6 months...

Anyway, now they should be 100% bomb proof! 😈
Went with 1M Font and 500K Rear this time.

Pro tip: make sure to install the outdrive pin before screwing the cup together, (see 3rd pic) or you won’t get it in! 😉
 
Update time..
Grenade’d another diff today! 🤪 This is the second metal diff housing that I sheared all the screws off one side. Apparently like others have stated, the m3.5 screws are just too small for the torque of these big blocks. Not only does it destroy the housing, but it usually shreds the sun and spider gears also.

To be fair, it was slightly damp with hella traction and I kept stabbing the hell out of it. Trying to test these M2C shafts. 😂

All better now.. 😉

On the bright side, I’ve got half a dozen brutally punishing packs thru these M2C drive shafts without incident! 😎
