Default C6 CV boots

I race a C6 Z06 in Australia in circuit racing. We have ongoing failures of CV boots - inner and outer, splits and wearing holes (not touching any other components - ribs seems to rub against each other). This is a competition vehicle only, and the events we do are for about 15-30 minutes track time. Anyone else experienced this and if so how was it overcome?
Thanks guys

Years ago there was discussion of this problem. The issue seemed to be when people bought remanufactured axles had trouble with the CV boots. The boot material was different than what GM used. At the time, people went back to GM supplied parts and the issues went away.

Here's one thread that says to be sure to get all the air out that you can.
