Racers Rear End 1963-79 Corvette 2 year total replacement $2975.00
"ONE AND DONE." That's what you want when you replace your Corvette rear end.
The Corvette rear end is the last thing you want to deal with. The original rear end supported a few big motors but lets face it nothing like your motor with 200 more horsepower over the original motor. There wasn't a Corvette that had a 3000 plus rpm converter and those rear ends just don't hold up against a manual transmission. Fifty plus years of abuse on your rear end plus a ton more horse power and your looking at a disaster waiting to happen at the most inopportune moment. How embarrassing as you hopefully coast safely off to the side of the road. Our rear ends are completely rebuilt with the latest upgraded bearings, seals, and clutches, not a stock rebuild with parts designed 50 years ago. We actually do a total build. Not a rebuild replacing old parts we replace the differential house with a new casting. Don't settle for an old design that has the same old problems. Undersized side yokes, weak springs, and marginal clutch materials and designs.
The Dragvette build is much more involved. With machining, hand fitting, and parts that are custom manufactured to our specifications to create a trouble free rear end. One and done. The only part that is original is the housing and the bearing cap is modified to improve it's strength. We hand fit a billet steel bearing cap on the ring gear side of the rear end to eliminate flexing plus a larger cap screw is bored and tapped. We replace the old 17 spline side yokes with Dragvette's own 30 spline inner axles. They are made of Hy Tuff material and hardened through out. Hy Tuff is the toughest material on the planet to take a shock. A 190,000 tensile strength rating compared to 110,000 for other after market axles. Our inner axles handle 1000 hp applications no problem. They are larger in diameter with a 30 tooth spline. The 30 tooth spline isn't cut as deep as a coarser 17 spline. That leaves more meat in the already larger diameter inner axle. The larger diameter inner axle requires machine work on the carrier housing. A brand new carrier is installed. We also fit hardened 30 spline spider gears to match the larger inner axles. A .050" bigger diameter hardened cross pin is also installed to increase stability of the spider gears. A new set of performance ring and pinion gears are installed with your choice of the following ratios 3:08, 3:36, 3:55, 3:73, 3:90*, 4:11, 4:33, 4:56. The ring and pinion are American steel and manufactured in the U.S.A. with American quality. The rear end is assembled with the most aggressive driver in mind. The back lash is set to minimize the shock of a standing start or hard manual shifts. The drive flanges will bolt up to your current half shafts with no modification.

Here are some formulas to help you determine your best gear ratio for your use. These formulas are not for overdrive transmissions and you should allow about 10 percent slippage for a non-locking converter. Order early if possible it it commonly takes 4 weeks to receive a rear end if it is not in stock.

Current inventory none. Some in process.
To determine what RPM you'll be at for any given gear ratio and tire diameter:
MPH x Axle Ratio x 336 -- Divide that number by the Tire Diameter
To determine what speed you'll be going with a given tire diameter and gear ratio:
RPM x Tire Diameter -- Divide that number by the Axle Ratio x 336
To determine what axle ratio you'll need for a given speed and tire diameter:
RPM x Tire Diameter -- divide that number by the MPH x 336
3:90* This ratio is not available in a US Gear brand.
