The best thing to do is install a supercharger and mount the intercooler dump above the drive!!!

Sorry, couldn't resist.

why even use one. you don't need them. i don't use them racing. with todays sythetic oils they keep the drive cool enough. plus if you have the proper horse power behind the drive there is no problem..

it's all in the wrist.

Treadwell,
I had several hundred hours on my old drive with no shower and know problems until, I let someone go through it and make sure everything was ok. Well a short time later (hrs wise) on flat water, at criusing speed, BOOM the upper gear set goes. When I remove the drive the top retaining nut that is supposed to be torqued to 250+?? lbs is hand tight. The threads arent stipped and it spins freely so I not buying that it was knock out after the gears went. It wasnt ever torqued correctly.
Anyhow I figure since Im getting a brandy new drive, why not?
