    Re: Went to the track.....and broke

    Wow! I always wondered where these rear end's came apart at. Someone in another post said it was from bad gear oil??? I would be interested to know if those splined shafts are induction hardened only on the splined areas or thru hardened on the whole shaft? Is there a stress riser in the area where the spline is that can be removed as well. From the picture it looks like there is an additional 1/2" or so piece missing from the shaft.

    Got my car back today. Warranty covered the fix. I told my service agent I broke at the track and she didn't seem to care. She didn't ask me any questions or comment on it. When I picked up my car she asked me to be sure I gave her a good review so she could get a bonus. Whatever. I'm just happy to get my car back. They put in a '11 DTS loaner, and while comfy I missed the hell out of my V.
