here it is, this is my christmas present to myself.

I am in bakersfield for xmas with the family. Had my little sister with me for a ride and hit 2nd gear a bit hard I guess. I will drive another car home tonight pick up the race rig and drive back to bakersfield tuesday and pick the wounded csex up and get it home for repairs. so 700 extra miles of driving and a few damaged parts on one helluva good time.

Looks like you have a valid reason to upgrade your getrag at this time :eek2:
At least you had some fun with it prior to the "little" mishap.

Did the neighbors say anything about the mess? cleaning gear lube is not too much fun :(

On an 05 it will bolt right up. Just need to fab a mount on the rear K member. The C5 bolts up right in the middle of the rear of the case, not on the sides like the C6 does. The cases are a little stronger and a whole lot cheaper. I got a built C5 rear installed for slightly more than a C6 core would cost me. That included a C5 core and the fab work. It was done by Cartek, I don't have a TIG to weld the aluminum.

MAN that sucks BRO, what tires were you running when you fragged your rear end and tranny output shaft (same type of carnage I have experiencee at the dragstrip in my old 427 C5R powered Auto Tranny C5)!! Hopefully, you have a perf tech friendly GM dealer otherwise time to open up the wallet to the tune of about $3,000.00 (minium)! :barf: :barf:

Mine broke in exactly the same way. Wheel hop. That broken output shaft will hurt a bit. But, while its out, have the tranny remmed and tightened up. Make lemonade.

I forgot who it was, but I saw some pics of an iorn diff case. I think it was DTE.

Welcome to the weak Corvette drivetrain club :) I've got a ton of broken rears,a few broken tranny's and a seized torque tube from my fellow Vette owners :bang:

I have broken 2 with wheel hop and street tires. Both looked like someone threw a granade inside. Pieces were everywhere and oild all over the road. Both times the tranny output shaft broke and went through the rearend case destroying it. So I bet your out a tranny output shaft as well.

I would highly recommend a DTE tranny/dif brace as part of your fix.

yeah I had to get it with the rig, not worth the hassle of trying to get it on a flatbed just so the driver could rip the front fascia off :judge:

The gearbox looks like the way to go let me know about the cast diff case as well, CF torque tube and the exedy twin.... I think it will be rocksolid after this.

Thanks again for your time Louis

You dont need a DTE brace, you need the brace I have, PM me for details. I built my rear end when I BEFORE i had to deal with this. I tore the 4th out of the transmission so I had a mcleod twin put in w/ aluminum fly, and a viper t56 with hardened output shaft and a Meyers Rear/Trans Brace. It's bullet proof now. Launched at 4500rpm on ET streets at the track a few times, rock solid. :D

Nice Truck and Trailer though.

OH... and what NORMALLY gets hauled around in that trailer?!
