Re: Off-Kilter Racing - '62 Valiant Slant 6 in Kentucky
If you are swapping a rear i would go with a 9" over an 8.8
The 8.8 axle bearings are terrible and do not last very long when you start pushing the car. We have 3 races on new axles and bearings and they are completely shot and have thoroughly fucked up the axles.
If you insist on an 8.8 make sure you get a later mustang one, it has bigger bearings and axles. they will last longer but are still a wear item due to the bearing having to do everything.
