Hello, interested in this part. What is the price?

Sorry for the late replay guys, we've been swamped and I have had no time to even check the forums.

We charge $1600 for the diff upgrade.

Do you know the STR of the converter by chance?

Default C7 2014 stingray 900whp

Anyone know a good build for the A6 auto? My stingray makes about 920whp no nitrous, and itís slipping throw 3rd and 4th gear, due know that I had it open when it was stock to replace the clutches for billet ones, as well as the pin. But after 5 months daily driving the car, and taking it to the track from time to time. No is back to slipping again... any ideas on what to do next ?

Default Rear diff upgrade - Wavetrac worth every penny

Cajunboyz - I upgraded to a Wavetrac by RPM, and even though it seems expensive...it was worth every penny.

Default Beefing up the trans

After reading your post (it was a bit hard to decipher - some of your grammar was a bit off but I would like to help you regardless ), I am assuming the following. Your C7 must be a 2014? Correct? You also had the clutches replaced with billet ones? Correct? I am also assuming you did NOT replace the steels with something aftermarket? Correct? Which pins are you referring too? And the pins are replaced with billet? Kindly answer these and Ill ask a few more qualifying questions after I get your responses.

Can I assume you changed out your axles? If so, which did you go with? Thanks!

The wavetrac is good but you lose the e-diff & if you get one get the half shafts as well

Is the upgrade you do a c6 zr1 or c7 zr1 rear diff? Reason I ask, im about to get a 19 or 20 (if they make them c7) and they are known to come with the c7 zr1 diff already.

Does the stock c7 zr1 diff have 2 spider gears in the back or upgraded to 4?

If they only come with 2, do you guys have a way of obtaining the other 2 matching gears, so that I could then upgrade it further to 4?

I am going to be in that same power range... No issues with the A8? Have you had many pulls from a dig?

Thanks
