    We have theories behind my rear drive-train problem.

    #1 Subframe tore apart causing diff to loosen and break off of mount, consequently destroying carbon fiber driveshaft as it dropped.
    #2 Diff mount bolt loosened out (on one side) and caused the diff to flex, consequently breaking mount, driveshaft etc...
    #3 Was doing a dry burnout on bias ply slicks at a uphill slope, causing too much tension in the rear thus breaking lots of parts.

    My diff was fine, axles were fine. Had to replace rear diff carrier, go back to a stock driveshaft and strengthen up the rear subframe.

    Why would you do a dry burnout on bias-ply's?

    Great info, thanks for sharing!

    I'm working on some custom diff support brackets and what not. I was considering going CF drive shaft but I'm still on the fence.
