    Snapped another axle tonight. thought i destroyed my trans again LOL

    Finally got my car back LOL level 10 trans bits, LSD, Diff lockdown Idk what else. new tires ect ect

    Sitting at a light turned off the traction control...spoooooolllll scrreetchh SNAP!

    i though the trans just popped into N like it used before trans upgrade at low end tourqe but this time i snapped my left axle!!! I've been through 4 right ones and this is my first left one Click here to enlarge at least now i know the LSD is working.. but idk about the diff lockdown i should've used that money to get DSS axles instead. (thought wheel hop was my biggest issue)

    i still need to make a video and full review of how the car shifts ECT was planning on it tonight but its been a long ass night.

    Damn!! I guess you get some discount from the tow company by now Click here to enlarge

    Hehe I probably would have gotten DSS upgrades after the second blown axle, or the third...

    Good luck with the fix..again.

    If you've only been replacing the right ones, chances are the left one was pretty fatigued. Either way, DSS upgrade sounds like something you need.

    LOL the fact that DSS needs you to send them axles to make the 1k hp axles it was downtime i guess, but now i have plenty of right ones and 1 left one i can send them I'm gonna order another ebay axle and put it in and send two broken ones to get upgraded. there was 0 wheel hop but maybe this has something to do with my car being 2 tons haha keep the upgraded ones till i break again!

    If you're buying eBay axles that aren't guaranteed brand new, I wouldn't surprised if you're buying heavily abused axles that were taken off a totaled car. I don't know if you called DSS & asked them if they make Axles for the 6AT, but it says nothing about Manual vs. Automatic vs. DCT on their website.

    Well they def make them for the 335, so I can't see them turning away business for 2 out of 3 transmission offerings. Give them a call yourself, only way to know for sure.

    Breaking $#@! is part of pushing the envelope.... And you're pushing an E93, RB Turbo'd & 6AT into not commonly explored (aggressively driven) territory.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think their might be 1 VFF/FFTEC E93 out there, no idea about the Stage 2 (or even 3) pre-orders if anybody is a vert.

    Didn't know these weren't new axles, yep they will degrade (stress fracture) over time; then its only a matter of time.
