How much strain and HP can our rear ends withstand? Im looking to doing some stuff to hook up a little better when at the track, but dont want to bust the ol 10 bolt?

What are some good mods that might help me hook up?

2 of the first and easiest things you can do to help strengthen the rear end is to put on a good thick diff. cover instead of a flimsy thin one, and where the axle tubes go into the center section put a full weld all the way around there as there basically only tacked from the factory

The worst enemy of a rear, any rear, is wheel hop. Yes, weld the tubes and the high performance style reinforcing cover. Which rear is this, an 8.5?
