    Haha. Randy, you have no idea. I could fill a garage with them. I use to keep the broken stuff until my gf finally made me take a bunch to the scrap yard. Driveshaft, axles, clutches, broken rotors from burnouts, piston, LS2 shortblock, grooved out crank pulleys, more axles, lol. Not to mention all the stock parts that were scattered around....new parts waiting to be installed.

    Now I am only allowed to keep the really cool trophies and pictures of the regular carnage.

    All this carnage, and you're still on the stock 4th gen diff, right? What kinds of axles are you running?

    Which RPS clutch did you get?

    My RPS has been a trooper for 15 months. I have not changes my driving habits and it's just now starting to have shifting issues at high rpms after getting it really hot. I'm hoping it's just the stock slave that is giving up but I'm not counting on it.

    Stock 4th gen diff and drive through the wheelhop for about two years without any concern for its wellbeing with stock axles. Most carnage was done with Gforce axles and stock CV's. I now have the DSS 1000 Hp axles.

    Organic/carbon fiber. Not sure what other 'options' there are. I had someone order it for me so I don't know the specifics.

    Wut, don't blame me dude! That's a direct result of Aftermarket Racing Exhaust!

    Still, sorry to see. Is your diff OK?

    Haha. And wide pipes. It's the same as it was before I swapped the fluid today. It's been over a year since I change it. I did also find the bolts on my DSS axles loose today. One almost backed all the way out.

    Add two more ripped to shreds motor mounts. Just installed a set of Revshift ones. Also found that my headers had burned through two layers of Fiberglas heat tape into my alternator wire. Maybe that's been the cause of my battery dieing after two days of sitting and the battery charging light. Lol
