Interesting. What were you doing when they broke? Typically the ring and pinion are strong. Spider gears may grenade subsequently ruining the ring and pinion though.

I'm not sure I would cryo a ring and pinion. I'll have to think about it.

I'm not to far away from 300 Below, that's were I planning on sending them along with axle shafts!
Well hooked on to sled, and you catch on quick!!! No spider gears, full spool.
The old shafts had been treated also, twisted both ends about a spline!!!

I figured you must be hooking up to sleds with that ratio. Well as deep into is as you are I say go for it. Whats the worst that can happen? You break a ring and pinion? Twist an axle? You've already been there. I'm assuming you are using quality parts? What kind of U-joints are you using? I figured they would break before the ring or axles. Good luck with it. Post some pics of the carnage. We always like to see the train wreck! :lol4:

Really didn't think it was that bad, seen a lot worse considering had 20-25 hooks on it.

It only took the outer half off the ring gear, pinion was actually unharmed!

Wouldn't have found any of it if outer axle seals were not leaking!!!!!!!

Wasn't sure if the cryo was the cause or not!

Done sent axles off for replacement and running 1480 yokes!
