I was racing at Cayuga yesterday and one side just blew. So I was wondering where I can find stronger ones ? Remember this is for a Cobalt SS/SC.

the 04 redlines have stronger drive axel then the cobalts. I know my shit too........next time learn to get out of the wheel hop, or don't launch your car from 4000 RPM.

I wouldn't want a new "sport" car that I couldn't "drive"

Can't drop from 4000? lamesauce

Love the new LNF, they beat the piss out of the car during testing, should be able to handle an ass whooping

You can, If u know how to drive it. Wheel hop is what breaks axles.

Agreed, wheel hop is bad on ANY car.

I blew the dragwag's diff that way (most likely), and even if you just think about it; as the wheel plants, it grips hard, then as it hops up, it unloads and starts spinning a lot faster, then it plants again and slows down VERY quickly, all while having the rotating inertia of the rest of the driveline trying to keep it rotating at a much faster speed. It's almost like poping the clutch many times a second...
