g80

i put a hole in two FWD 3.94 transmissions due to diff failure does that count? also i had a welded diff in my 89 240sx coupe and hated the side effects such as how dangerous it is on tight turns at high speeds

lemme know when you smash the g80, no not stripped the little gears out, smashed the center section. Then you will have arrived.

Yep but not in a Volvo. That would be the first rear under my Mercury. The second rear spit out an axle when one of the carrier bearings came apart. Then in went the c-clip eliminators and Strange axles. Then I ripped 12 teeth of the ring gear. Now I have everything inside the rear upgraded and still I haven't put it back on the road after the engine gave up.
