I just drop the PPF with the diff and remove the PPF off the car. The secret is to do it so often and use anti-seeze on the plugs and bolts.

OK. I will drag the tubs down this weekend and see what I have. I'm pretty sure I've got a good input shaft. I'll get pictures of what I have.

That car had a bolt-in roll cage that punched through the floor pans in a freak accident. Its rare a car lands near perfectly square on its top. Wrecks are chaotic and are rarely ever the same.

Often times that's probably the top speed of incident. Might not include any decel due to panic breaking. I would be curious to see what the data recorder states in terms of speed and rapid decel.
