    and from a dig we shouldnt launch from anything more then 2500 RPM right?
    def safer to race from a roll. Basically the problem from a dig is whether or not you "hook" or get traction. You can launch at 2500 rpm and if your tires are spinning then your not gonna break your rear. you put on DR and hook up at high rpm all that stress goes to the rear and boom....game over. truck and trailer time.

    ok yeah that makes sense. what are the odds of finding a used center section for the rear? also what vehicle would work for the used center section?

    A good used 9in center section isn't cheap. I'm not sure if all 9in center sections are interchangeable either. There just really isn't an inexpensive way to upgrade the rear ends in our cars.

    In my opinion, yes. It's the launch (the sudden shock) that's so hard on them, not to say that it won't break if you hit it hard form a roll, you simply can't trust them at all. As for the launch RPM, it depends on so many factors, if you're "side-stepping" the clutch at 2500RPM you're asking for trouble. Not to mention, and just for comparison reasons that's all; that a heavily modded car is going to be putting down quite a bit more torque, and HP at 2500RPM than a stocker would, thus quite a bit more strain on the rear end, so there's no safe "formula". Not to mention tires, available traction etc...
    Bottom line is, GM put a weak rear end in the car, but one that would suffice for 95% of the people who would buy the car. We happen to be the other crazy 5% who wish they would have put in something stronger.
    Basically what I do is launch it "soft" and then let the motor work. I would lose most races with a stock motor. After I install the Moser, I'm looking forward to some great starts though.

    So whats the deal with this rear? Its only a thousand bucks. How hard would it be to get the other parts needed? Thanks
    you will need another $1500 for good center section (case, gears, posi unit, set up install, bearings etc...) Believe me I looked everwhere, Cheapest one I found with quality parts (Strange, Moser, Detroit locker, Motive Performance), was $2550 shipped to my door. Set up for 4 channel with drain plug.

    Sure you can buy the moser case and axles if you have a 9" thirdmember, However for the most part you are looking at $2500-$3300 for a good rearend.

    The life span of your 10 bolt is very short, though
