    So if you are willing to either: (a) behave; or (b) limit misbehavior to "playing road racer" rather than "playing drag racer" you might get by with an OEM differential. The first generation differentials have been known to go many miles, even though those that were defective tended to grenade.
    Thx! I might look more into the 8.8 down the road! . Drag racer seems like more fun!
