    With a very large bracket.
    If you tweak it, the entire housing isn't trashed, just the bracket.

    My question is a pretty specific one, but can vary depending on the car.

    What are the chances a mostly stock WS6, with street tires (275s), and stock rear end driven by an M6 can last? What "clutch dumps" can the stock 10 bolt hold with an M6? I'm wondering because I dumped at 4k just to see the smoke show, but I'm wondering if I'm endangering the 10 bolt by doing this? Most posts that I have read concerned the stock rear running sticky tires. How about street tires though? I'm guessing they're not as bad because they just won't get traction with higher revved dumps.

    One more question, at what power, while using street tires, do you think a stock rear end can hold through an M6?

    some people have shattered 10bolts while on a street tire and stock...

    I raced on my 10bolt (m6 car) on a DR, racked up over 100,000miles on it with no problems.
    but now because of the HP my car is pushing I installed a strange dana s60.

    I know one camaro turning 10s on a 10bolt, with 1.3 60' times. this car also weights in at 2800lbs. LOL

    just chalk it up as if you play you might pay...
    there is no magic hp number of what kills the rearend or not.
    smoking the tires doesnt kill the rearend, its wheel hop, and rearend deflection (bending the axle housing). smoking the tires doesnt help!
