    I know this eliminates wheel hop as the OP said but is the rear itself still weak? i like to shift i mean i don't WOT but i slam gears hard will the axles take up the stress or is the diff still prone to break.

    ** Currently car down with a blown rear **
    Just an example on a closed course

    The newer version differentials are not prone to breakage at rational horsepower levels. These axles, by curing wheelhop, should extend the expected life of the differential in any event.

    The one incident of breakage on the 2007 version differential involved 600 HP, drag radials, and a drag strip.

    From what I gather in this thread, there's only two sets of DSS axles on CTS-Vs running around out there- n2ojunky's and dynojetman's.

    UUC makes lot of stuff for racing BMWs, but I still have a set of their motor mounts sitting in a box. I am getting paranoid in my old age too.

    I am just looking for an explanation as to why smaller is stronger and GM is wrong again.

    Re: Testing new fix for wheelhop: Custom Axles

    Darkman, they are stronger. Simple as that. If you dont take their word for it, then dont buy them. Plenty of other people here are going to. Get over it. If you cant understand the metallurgy and tempering of different metals and how it affects them, then dont assume they are weaker. I think its pretty damn obvious they are stronger in general. Even in a worst case scenario the shaft is technically weaker than stock (which they arent), then apparently all of the other parts of the axle clearly make up for it. Videos prove it. We will have somebody coming out there just to get a 3rd opinion as well. The problem here isnt the product at hand. Its the fact that all us V owners have been reluctantly plagued with wheelhop and blowing costly diffs for the last 5 years, that we cant fathom the fact there is a cure finally after millions of trial and errors. Wake up, smell the coffee, take shower, jerk one off, and be stoked that we have a fix finally. I nearly crapped my pants when I saw the videos and i got butterfly's in my stomach just because i KNOW these will work, and i KNOW that im really gonna piss my neighbors off at 3am even more hahahahaha. everybody stop fighting it and try to accept it. you are making it a pain in nathen's ass for trying to HELP us for christ's sake

    It's not just about how thick it is( or so I tell the girls), but what it's made of. 300M is nearly indestructable. I remember reading test report of a turbo desiel tank motor that used custom 300M steel pistons and they ran it purposely lean for over 24hours straight and had no significant piston damage. DSS is well known for their axles, and I trust they are infinately better then whatever the bean counters allowed in our rear.

    +1, GM makes some pathetic parts sometimes. Look at our diff, cmon now do you think their axles are gonna be better? Whens the last time you looked at your driveshaft as well? 2 piece w/ a huge a$$ center support bearing with enough rubber in it to make a tire. Sad. They should have one pieced it from day one but they didnt because it would get in the way of the exhaust hahaha.

    I am going to assume that it has to do with the type of material the axles are made of.

    There's absolutely nothing wrong with asking some logical technical questions before forking over $1,500. No one's "fighting" here, so just relax. It's great that you've made up your mind already, but there are others who need a little more information first.

    Take it down a notch, killer.
    Rest in Peace, J.D. (aka Dirt_Cheap_Fleetwood)
