So just to clarify, you were accelerating through wheel hop after shifting into 2nd when the axle broke, or did you just shift from 1st to 2nd quickly, and then dump the clutch which resulted in no wheel hop, but a broken axle?

Also, I don't think DSS needs working axles. They replace the bar and the CVs.

Everything happend so quickly, but I do remember the snap occurred the moment I dumped the clutch from 1st to 2nd. I know the rear end was not as planted as I would like. Working with FFTEC to resolve the root cause rather than just getting stronger half shafts.

Also the big thing about going with DSS's is I need the car ASAP and don't have the flexibility to wait for DSS to rebuild my halfshafts.
