I'm probably letting something out of the bag here, but.... :wall:

Is anyone offering a solid rear axle conversion?

I'd hate to have 500 rwhp "potential" shearing those half shafts...

Thanks...

I'm looking into a 12 bolt actually. The Ford nine inchers use up too much power with that extreme hypoid angle. I don't even recommend them for my Ford customer's cars!

Looks like I have to do some measuring....

Maybe some of what they have learned putting the 9" in could be used with a 12 bolt swap. Worth talking to him about it.

The one nice thing about 9" units is that you could have pre-set gear sets and swap them in and out at the track for whatever ratios you wanted to run.

Otherwise, I'd stick with a 12 bolt personally.
