Here's a video of the Snake Eater blowing the stock 10-Bolt rear in front of the shop on a 1-2 shift....
The spiders had let go and tore up the inside of the carrier...
This was the 2nd 10-Bolt on the 5th rebuild...

101mm TURBO CTS-V - 1200hp Cadillac!!!
This was probably the NUTTIEST car we encountered at the Pikes Peak Air
Strip Attack - this 1170hp 101mm turbo
equipped Cadillac CTS-V was turning heads everywhere it went. Hop into the
passenger seat as we race down the 1/2 mile raceway at over 180 mph!
1967 Chevrolet Camaro - 8.2" 10 bolt rear axle tear down
This video shows the disassembly procedure for an 8.2" 10 bolt rear axle.
This procedure is the same for both 10 and 12 bolt Chevrolet rear axle
assemblies. I am rebuilding this axle so that I can replace the factory
3.08:1 open differential unit with a 3.55:1 posi-traction differential
unit. The things not shown on this video include the removal of pinion
bearing races and the axle seals and bearings. The pinion races were
removed with the assistance of an extra long brass drift and a dead blow
hammer. The seals were removed with a seal puller. The entire diassembly
process took about 1 hr. The axle will now be throughly cleaned and the
housing will be checked for cracks and other abnormalities prior to
painting and reassembly. Stay tuned and thanks for watching!
AMERICA Burnout - Happy 4th of July!!!

to point it out for the 413th time :)

love with it, but listen to this Lamborghini Aventador use it's LAUNCH

How to install or change or replace gears and bearings in a rear end or differential
Installation of carrier bearings, pinion bearings, ring and pinion and a
crush sleeve are covered in this video. The main tricks given in the video
are about the actual set up bearings. The rear end being worked on is a
8.5 inch gm 10 bolt out of a second generation f body. Tooth contact
pattern charts are available on the internet, do your own research.
Ring and Pinion Gear Set Which is Best for your Vehicle | Summit Racing Quick Flicks
This installment of Summit Racing Quick Flicks will help you determine
which ring gear set is best for your vehicle. Acceleration and your cruise
RPM can be affected if you select the wrong ring gear and pinion gear for
your vehicle type. The way to determine which ring and pinion is installed
on your vehicle is by counting the number of ring gear teeth, then dividing
that by the number of pinion gear teeth. There are five basic aspects to a
vehicle that help you determine which ratio is right for your car: Tire
size, cam profile, torque converter selection, cruise RPM and vehicle use.
Do you have a daily driver, street/strip car, or a drag race car? Get the
correct ring gear set for your specific car. To shop Summit Racing's ring
and pinion set offerings, please click here:
Moser 12-bolt Muscle Pak rear-end unboxing
You know how people are always sharing their "unboxing" videos of stuff
like new computer hardware or new cameras? Well, I think it's about time to
share an unboxing of some awesome muscle-car parts! (Yes, I am that much of
a car-geek.) In this video I tear open the crate for my brand-new Moser
Engineering 12-bolt Muscle Pak rear end as soon as the UPS Freight driver
leaves my driveway.
If you're as big a car-geek as I am, you probably want to see some specs on
* New Moser 12-bolt Chevy-style housing (made in the U.S.A.)
* GM A-body OEM chassis-mounting provisions
* Seamless steel tubing (3" O.D., 1/4" wall)
* Wilwood forged Dynalite rear brakes with internal drum parking brakes
* Custom alloy 33-spline bolt-in axles
* 3.55:1 Pro/Street ring-and-pinion gears
(PS: I got so excited about opening the crate that I mis-stated how the
ring-and-pinion works in the video; it's 3.55 rotations of the DRIVESHAFT
for every 1 rotation of the axle. Sorry!)
* Detroit Truetrac helical-gear posi differential
* 1350 series pinion yoke
* New Timken bearings, studs, seals, heavy-duty retainer plates, housing
ends, and T-bolt kit
* New braided-stainless brake lines, clamps, and Lokar emergency brake
* Aluminum through-bolt-style girdle rear cover with drain plug
* Semi-gloss red powdercoated
* 1/2" x 20 x 1-1/2" (0.620" knurl) wheel studs
This goes into my 1968 Chevelle, where it replaces the 3.23:1 ratio,
non-posi, 10-bolt wearing stock drum brakes that's back there now. (Next
up: Unboxing the T-56 Magnum 6-speed Hurst transmission that'll send power
back to this bad boy....)

Cross Country in a Gasser 1955 Chevy with a Hemi! - Roadkill Ep. 30
On this episode of Roadkill, it's 2,600 miles, 530 cubic inches, 700 horsepower, six
speeds, 17 mpg, and two fun visits with some friends from TV. Last time, on
Roadkill Episode 29, we finished our Chrysler-Hemi-powered 1955 Chevrolet
gasser in about two weeks of thrashing (it's the same car you saw us take,
as a bare shell, to Jim Meyer Racing in Oregon in Episode 8). On this
latest episode, we drive it around the block once, then hit the road on a
2,600-mile journey from Los Angeles to the kickoff party of the 2014 HOT
ROD Power Tour in Concord, North Carolina. On the way, there's the
breakdowns you expect from Roadkill, plus two surprises: a stop at Midwest
Street Cars with Justin "Big Chief" Shearer and Shawn "Murder Nova"
Ellington from Street Outlaws, and another with Rutledge Wood from Top Gear
The '55 Chevy is based on an original body with new quarters and floors and
a fiberglass decklid and tilt front end, and Lexan windows from ProGlass.
It's not in primer: the car was wrapped in satin black by Moody from
High-Tech Auto Wraps. The car sits on a complete gasser chassis from Jim
Meyer Racing with a solid front axle on leaf springs and a ladder-bar setup
with Vicking coilovers on the rear. The rear tires are reproduction
Firestone piecrust slicks from Coker tire, and the fronts are just like
stock VW Bug tires.
The engine is a 530ci Hemi based on a Mopar Performance crate engine. With
a Comp solid roller cam, 10.5:1 compression, homemade 2-1/4-inch headers
from a Hedman kit, and Hilborn stack injection powered by a FAST XFI
controller and Aeromotive fuel system, it makes 700 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of
torque. We were stunned to see 17 mpg a few times on the cross-country
trip, especially with absurd 5.43 gears in the Ford 9-inch rear axle. The
key to it all is the Tremec T56 Magnum six-speed manual double-overdrive
trans installed with a conversion kit from American Powertrain. The car
uses a Speedwires harness, charging and starting by Powermaster, and a
Braille lightweight battery in the trunk.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
