    That is still incredible to me that they are bent. The axles in my Moser rear are beastly -- I can't imagine that the Strange axles would be that much different in construction.

    So you can launch the car at 5k at the track and be ok but going down the highway at 65 you can bend an axle? If that's the case I will stick with my original plan and get a Moser 9in. Lol

    I agree. No bend with track action but they may/will bend with street driven?

    Ok, so today I changed the oil (full synthentic Kendall) and checked her over. No leaks anywhere, amazing for 105k miles.

    Drove out and meet some local F-bodies, got confirmation that my rpm tach is off on the car. It reads 1100 rpm @ idle and on 2 different dyno tuning software computers it read 800 rpm. So now I can relax. I'm not crazy thinking there is a vacuum leak.

    Washed and waxed her early today getting ready for the Bruce Hornsby concert at the winery tonight.
    While wiping her down, I saw a missing lug nut cover. (1st loss in 11 years of owning her)
    I think it was some F-ing kids or the other guy in town that has a TA. (small town here)
    Soo, I had to order a pack of the F-ing things for $28.00.

    Bent axles or not i took it for a drive. Gonna end up going with a pre set package including bearings anyway. LOVE the sound of the magnaflow. Got a highbeam flash and a thumbs up from a third gen facing me at a stoplight so i let him get a good listen of WOT when the light turned green.
