If you havent heard, they just lowered the price for this kit to $5100. Rated for 1500hp and lifetime warranty. I'm hard. I think they just sold me.

Thats s great deal if your car makes and hooks 1500hp.

And if you never need warranty parts from them.

How do you figure? $6200 on their website, including the Strange pumpkin and $400 carbon fiber driveshaft upgrade.

Great news guys!
New lower price on our 9" kits. We have been working on a few things to get our price down on our 9" kits while at the same time packing more and more innovation to bring you the best and strongest 9" kits on the market hands down. I am pleased to announce that our 9" kits are going down in price. The entire complete package including our fabricated housing, the Strange Pro-Iron pumpkin, your choice of gears, Strange S-Trac 35 spline posi unit, driveshaft and our new 31 Spline Outlaw axles used to be $6698. for the Camaro, G8, CTS-V, Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT8. The new price is now $5100. The price for the GTO kit used to $6098. the new price is now $5100. The GTO kit does not come with outer stubs since they are nor required. Make sure you go check out our web site and the lower prices. We have lots of options on the 9" kits so give us a call if you would like to talk it over. www.Gforce1320.com We also now have financing available through Paypal! Some of you know this but this year we officially came out with our Outlaw axles that we have been talking about and testing for a couple years now.*Our Outlaw Axles have our own custom designed billet cv stars that are bigger, stronger and have a considerably larger spline engagement area then anything on the market.To go along with our billet cv stars we designed a big 31 spline axle bar that's a little over an 1-5/16" diameter throughout the entire length of the bar, even in the splined area. To put it simply, it's huge! We tested these axles in our GTO shop car and put down over 1,000 rwhp on them. We hammered them as hard as we could and was able to get our 60ft time clear down to a 1.27 with the tires a foot in the air. We never could break the axles or the cv joints. They worked flawlessly every time. Our kit also now comes standard with huge 35 spline inner stubs. In a nut shell, our standard 9" kit is rated to 1500 rwhp. Overkill? Damn right!*All this and you still get the Gforce Lifetime Warranty."

Yep, that's what their product page said. I would definitely recommend the 9" IRS over an 8.8" for anyone planning on doing an engine swap and forced induction, if for nothing else than the ability to change gear ratios in 20-30 minutes instead of hours.

This + the ability to go 40 spline and gun drilled if you ever begin breaking 35spline stuff. Granted 35spl 300M is leaps and bounds stronger than stock, but if youre building the car to handle a swap/fi/nitrous and some slicks then there is no sense in settling for the 8.8. 35spline shafts still break on radial cars that are hundreds of pounds lighter than a V so the 31 spline in an 8.8 is definitely going to let go at some point if you are really out racing and launching the car.

The appeal of the 9" is really like Fuzzy said, the quick gear changes. If this car ever becomes my dedicated race/time trial car, which I doubt it will, I will go to a 9" simply for this factor.

I would really like to do this but I doubt I will. The 8.8 is still good enough for my intended usage... Still though even at $5800 very very tempting.

Horsepower loss on the 9" has been cited here before but I think I'm with you guys....spend the extra 20% to get 100% more POTENTIAL strength......

Probably no one. Which is why I'm having a hard time trying to justify the extra cost... But god damn the 9 kit looks sexy as hell when its all installed.

PISNUOFF has broken a couple sets of 1000 HP axles, if I recall correctly.
