Default Can I safely dig my 750rwhp T/A through a upgraded 10bolt rear end?

Hey guyz..

I'm thinking of starting my 750rwhp T/A from dig through the stock 10 bolt and sticky tires

by buying an aftermarket differental , axels , ring & pinion set and upgrading my stock 10 bolt rear end , It is a safe way ? I mean rev my rpm to 4k and then shift it to 1st.

Is it a risk doing this ?

Risk? It will break, not if, just when. IMO it is a waste of money.

12-bolts arent as bad on an auto as they are with a M6.

if you go moser 12 your wasting money....that thing will start to leak and make noise right away........if on a budget,you can get an s60 with the s trac which is conservitavely rated at 650, however if your running a turbo or supercharger you can probly squeeze an extra hundred out of it since its not as hard as spray or natural hp on a rear and its components.......or just get a locker or spool with it and you will have no issues........if you call carl at central racing parts, his base price is like 2250 i belive (may be lower but dont wanna false advertise) now if you wanna ad TCS it goona cost you a little extra.....and that is a shipped price......his number is 316-299-8427, and his customer service is the best out there.

Thanks you , I found another (used) rear end called 'Dana' I think as he said.

The problem is ... I live in Kuwait , transporting such a heavy rear end costs me much , for example , a 2000$ rear end with the price of transport is almost 4000$ in total. I just bought the Billet light weight wheels from the US , they took 1000$ from me for only the transport.. so I suggest buying a used one at kuwait is a better choice.

The Dana 60 is heavy but large and strong. It will swap in just like putting your 10-bolt back in. You will need to get your drive shaft shortened or a new stronger one.

I would get the S60 over a 12-bolt anyday.

True, if I was forced to deal with what I could find used to avoid shipping over sea's I would still pick a s60 over a 12-bolt. But I'm M6 so a 12-bolt is out for me.

yea strange 12 bolt is more superior than a moser anyday.......the mwc 9 inch is a great choice as well, but again a little pricier........i never understood why people bitched about an extra 60 pounds in the s60 vs a 12 bolt.....id rather have extra weight and extra durability if im spending 2200 or more

I have never had any problems with my moser 12 bolt and I have quite a few friends running them who also never had any issues.

Why is a 12 bolt not an option for you with an m6? That doesn't even makes sense lmao.

They tend to pick up whine if your launch on them hard repeatedly. I see no point in spending the cash on a 12-bolt when a 9 inch is practically the same price.

I picked mine up used for cheap, only reason I bought one. I've never heard of anyone complaining about a whine just devoloping out of no where like that. I would say something would have had to been set up wrong in the first place if you start getting a whine.
