Why welding the tubes alone is not enough:
While properly welding the axle tubes to the center section provides an excellent solution to the problem of spinning the axle tubes in the center section, it does very little to prevent the axle tubes from flexing up and down as well as front to back.
The deflection in the axle tubes can be so severe under hard launches on the dragstrip that it will actually fracture the center section near the welds, destroying the rear axle and possibly ruining other areas of the drivetrain.
The CHE Mustang 8.8 Axle Brace will greatly reduce or totally eliminate this axle deflection, especially when used in conjunction with properly welded axle tubes.
The reduced axle deflection will improve launch and 60ft times because the rear tires will now have consistent traction without the undesirable changes in rear caster and camber that is imposed with axle deflection.
