Default Rebuilding my stock rearend

K before you all say on dont waste the money, just get a 12 or 9". Im putting all new everything into my rearend. K i dd my car sees maybe 4 track days, BUT i never rev it on the street/track over 1.5 ya i know im a *****. I just go for fun, but it would be stronger and more durable now that i have done this to it yes? Just dont dump the clutch, or put stickies on it right? thxs for your info...

i have seen rears go on street tires with about a 3k clutch drop. i also have seen them live behind full slicks and not fail. luck of the draw i think. mine lived happily behind a stalled auto and cut some 1.6x and 1.7x 60 foots. if you rebuild it, make sure its done right, it should hold up to moderate abuse, but its not gonna stand to many clutch drops.

he is right..if you had an auto like I do I'd say spend some $ on the rear but if I had a stick I'd get a 12 bolt.
