    Has anyone even heard of a properly set-up 12 bolt blowing up with an M6?? Seems very rare for a 12 bolt to break, period.

    Yes, many times. Usually with a posi in it tho. A 12 bolt with a spool in a six speed has proven pretty stout.

    here is how it breaks down if you are wondering and dont want to wait till monday
    housing and axles-$426
    $1185 for center section plus $135 for aluminum
    $350 for the detroit locker
    gears and pinion support included and they said moser will send it U.P.S so it will be about $100 for shipping
    plus he knocked a little off the price

    I have been reading thru this thread - and just can not take the misinformation. The 9" and the Dana 60 are very close in strength - comparing just the gear set - there are variances in the gear strength depending on the gear ratio- that being said the strength as far as the gear set is a wash. The Moser and Strange 12-bolts, S60's (based on dana) and 9" are ALL aftermarket and made by the manufacturer. The Moser 9" is lighter then a factory 9" , the Strange S60 is lighter then the factory- the S60 has adjuster nuts and nodular caps- it's on the Strange site. If you are building an all out race car, and do not need the abs - the 9" is an excellent choice - especially with an aluminum case for reduced weight. If you are comparing weight the 12-bolt Moser, DTS or Strange are all lighter then the 9" and S60 - but at the cost of reduced strength and increased gear noise. If you compare a 9" with 35-spline axles and an Iron case and a S60 - the weight difference is very close - within 15 lbs. The F-body is probably even closer in weight since the 9" has to have a heavy torque arm provision (not part of the casting like a Moser/DTS/Strange 12-bolt or S60) welded on. The S60 comes with 35-spline axles and several choices of differentials, where as you are stuck with a Detroit Locker (noisy- but strong) with a 9". I really do not see the point of a 12-bolt, which by the way only has aftermarket gears, which tend to be nosier then oem - the S60 accepts OEM dana/spicer gears.... I will try to find and link a Car Craft article that ran this year with a Moser/Strange and one other company's rears - it had the break down of 12-bolt/9" and S60 - though for an early f-body.

    What's the difference between a Detroit TruTrack and Detroit Locker in a Moser 9"?

    TruTrac is limited slip.

    The locker....is a locker.

    Your stock rearend is a limited slip. Meaning around corners the rearend allows for the slight difference in travel of the tires.

    Locker....not so much. You will get a clunk around corners.
