I need help!

I replaced my cv axles with 1400hp rated axles well I just did a practice launch and it destroyed my rear diff! Does anyone know if the cts-v steel housing will fit an SS Camaro? If not where can I get a good steel one? The aluminum is not gonna be able to hold the power running to it.

Sorry that it happened. I'm sure its not cheap. But as some one that has destuctor'd a lot of my own stuff, I would like to see the carnage if you have pictures.


Edit: I work for a Cadillac dealer. I can snap a picture of a rear diff housing then next time one comes in if you want to compare pictures.

I know you have axles already but maybe he has the diff separately or you could sell your axles:
DSS

These guys have some thing as well but their customer service and warranty practices are crap in my personal experience:

Was there any wheel hop? If so, that will destroy any rear. But if it was a hard hook launch and then broke look at the 9" conversions.
