Were you getting wheel hop by chance? Bad things happen when you get that sort of shock loading. Frankly, any driveshaft shop can set you up with a new splined yoke, re-tube the inboard side and install new crosses for around $200.

I haven't had it long enough to dyno. Have sourced a half shaft for now though. I will be in the market for HD units if used ones come up. Really though...if I beef up the shafts stub axles will be next to die.

No wheel hop, running same tires the acr runs very soft compound track tire.

Hooks up like glue...didn't like the launch.

Dag-gone !!! That is viscious. I broke a half shaft a few years back. I have heard that upgrading the half shaft then puts the splines in the differential at risk of twisting. Currently, I experience a LOT of wheel hop. On Sport Cups.

I have a couple of Unitrax shafts, older, should be gone thru and check. But would sell for $600 for both

Unless you are wanting to see your shafts look like the photos above, I would STRONGLY advise you to: experiment with tire inflation pressure, your throttle input, and finally, toe-in settings.

Power adders and/or unchecked wheel hop were primary issues that led to the rear frame strut warranty recall.
