Once you start making some power, driveline failure isn’t just a nuisance, it’s a safety issue. We opted to build the stock 8.8 rearend instead of swapping in a 9-inch, due to its lower mass, lower cost, and parasitic power loss. It’s been beefed up with Strange 33-spline axles, C-clip eliminators, spool, girdle, main caps, 3.90:1 gears, and a 1350 yoke. Bill Buck Race Cars added the trick back brace, and for a total investment of $1,759, the rearend has never once let us down.
