Ethyl Dyno Pull with the Whipple Early in the tuning process. The car had 3.91 gears in it then using a Dana LSD rear end unit. We have since gone to a GForce1320 33 spline spool with 33 splins stubs and hubs on a 3.46 gear. Helped the heck out of gas mileage.

WRP thats not tuning thats hammering sounds impressive the 3:46 gears don't sound like it hampered the perfomance much, looks like you live in Kansas or somewhere flat like that not Texas, I live in the Seirra's so those long runs aren't in the cards for me, the CHP's aren't verry tolerant here either, Budnicks

I have a cousin that lives in Santa Rosa, been promising to take me out to the desert in her vette. I had always thought that would be a great place to visit.

My sister owns a mortage brokerage co. in Santa Rosa. I live in Sonora not too many open roads here. Your cousin sounds like my kind of girl, "Wanted women with Vette send pitcher of Vette", That sounds like fun as long as its not Death Valley, One of the dry lakes like El Mariage in SoCal or Bonneville salt flats in Utah would be fun I always wanted to build a Bonneville car, Maybee someday, Budnicks

That was good I watched a bunch of them you are getting to be a documentary film director. Can you get hardened axles or harden yours, Budnicks

I am contemplating replacing the IRS with a SRA. For now I have the GForce1320 stage 3 axles, 33 spline spool, stubs, and hubs. You can't real;ly get more solid than that.

Those were hardened axles that you broke? If they wre you deffenently need to do something else, You use a spool on the street? that can aid to axle breakage causing undue stress while turning, need a locker or possi of somekind so the axles won't be in a bind while in slow speed turns especialy, one inside wheel spins at acompletely (much slower) differant rate than outside wheel, just a thaught.  Budnicks

Sorry, didn't mean to imply I had broken an axle. GForce aftermarket axles are affiliated with BMR. As far as I know, no one has broken one of their axles. We considered the drawbacks of the spool. Once we get the car dialed in and tuned with the roll cage added, it will see mostly track duty with the occasional GTG. What I wanted was the 33 Spline stub capability the GForce kit gives. BTW we had a Cars and Coffee event in Dallas today. Here is a video entering and leaving, there were probably more than 500 cars there today. Dallas cars n Coffee November 2010.
