Finally we'll be able to make use of all the help you gave us Billy boy. For those who are wondering wtf that is all about listen in. It was Sparky who came up with the Camaro housing/Cadillac R&P/Torsen centre diff combination that we put together . We are running a 2.56 combo at the moment , a step up from our former 2.77......in the meantime we're pretty sure we;'ve got about 50% more power than we had when we ran 192.xxx in 2010, it made 312hp@64590, we're hoping that will translate to about 350@7000......we also have a 2.41 set we're taking.....and in case fairy-tales come true we have a 2.28 set with us as well
Hey Tiny, like I'd have any trouble finding you guys, I have some Beluga Caviar and the Dom with me, you bring the silverware :cheers:

If you folks can really spin your engine that high -- the 69,540 rpm mentioned a few posts back -- then you'll have some other issues, too.  But dang, with those speeds won't you be using something like the step-down gearbox from a turbine?

Best wishes for a safe, fast, and fun week, ladies and gentlemen.

Wishing a fast, dry week to team Sunshine.

You guys are long overdue for some seat time.

I'd give my third nut to be there.
