Default 06 Base/Z51 Differential

Planning on switching over to an RPM Transmissions level 7 TR6060 trans with a custom gear set, for this I’m considering upgrading my stock differential to either a stage 2 or stage 3.

Stage 2 includes Z06 half shafts while stage 3 gives you 300M half shafts, carbon clutches, and Z06 pinion support.
So far I’m leaning towards the stage 2 upgrade being more then enough.

Planning to stay n/a with no more then 600rwtq. I have little interest in doing excessively hard launches from a stop. Much more interested in roll racing and occasional road course work.

I’m curious to gain a consensus on what level of rwtq and use the standard C6 differential can handle?

don't see a problem with that, I'm running near 500 RWTQ and the SC people are running over that with no issues. C5 ZO6 half shafts are a nice upgrade
