    I should have all the Monster Clutches on my web site soon.
    Matt does the tuning on my car also. I went with the Stage 2.5 clutch and lightweight flywheel.

    Cool. have you seen the new Dyno?

    SnL is one of my largest dealers. Everytime they call now all I hear are cars on that dyno in the back ground. I think they have been running that thing non stop, LOL

    Re: Gforce Engineering half shafts

    Interested in the haif shafts and the drive shaft. So could you still use either if you convert the existing diff to say a Dana 44 out of a C3 vette?

    Was thinking about changing out the diff at some point (maybe) and I was just wondering if either would work with this diff.

    Also, what do you need to do to convert the T56 to use the yoke instead of the flange that's on it now?

    Not sure on the Dana diffs, I'm new to the caddie market but I'm learning fast.
    We specialize in the IRS market so I'm sure I can figure out some pretty cool solutions.

    The t56 should use the same slip yoke we use on the GTO t56. I'll have to make sure though.

    Thanks
    Chris

    Re: Gforce Engineering half shafts

    Yeah, I really know zero about the Dana IRS diff's other than it looks like it will be easier to modify the cradle to add it to the V and I can find a rebuilt one with new ring and pinions for about $1,250 and I have heard it will take more abuse then the unit currently in the V. I have a local shop that does great work with modifications like this but I don't believe they do any work with the actual drive lines other than installing them.

    Did you modify the GTO transmission to use the slip yoke or did stock drive shaft use a slip yoke?

    Our slip yokes go right on.

    Yeah, I was up there last Saturday while they were taking a look at Cliff's '09 V. That dyno looks awesome! I should be up there tomorrow to watch Matt tune Cliff's car.

    I may take a few pulls on their new dyno, just to see where it compares to others in the area.

    Re: Gforce Engineering half shafts

    I'll have a set of OEM shafts here in a couple days so I'll fast track this along.

    I'll also make a complete stub to stub kit for you big power guys.

    No, I do not. BMR is a good place, good parts and good folks. I might have to hit them up on making axles for them now that you mention it
