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! 😉
