What makes you think the half shafts themselves are not the root cause? With 100% e85, you should be making around 450 ft lbs. of rwtq, right? That like a 60% increase from stock.
This is true...It could be many things, but from what I felt in the car it could be a combination of things. Also there are a few guys putting out just as if not more torque and I feel that only a handful of reports of busted halfshafts, maybe I Was just an unlucky one.

Either way, DSS upgrade is in my near future, once I return from vacation and cash out some stock
