DSS Axle Removal and Install

Guys, I threw a video on YouTube because I couldn't find one to remove and replace the Axles. I upgraded to DSS after I snapped mine and after I already had them removed I decided to do a video because there was no way I was going to do it the way ISTAD said to. Maybe I was wrong in doing so, but I figured out a way and thought since I couldn't find a video I would post one. Hope its informative and helps someone

Thanks for the video. I just purchased a BM3 tune and will be adding downpipes. Did you just have the tune minus downpipes and you broke your axles? Was is it due to a lot to launches? I heard 91-93 ots tunes alone shouldn’t cause this.

I actually have the OTS 93 Stg2 and fabworks DPís. Just broke them on a launch at the track. Got to be careful wif you have a tune, no hard launches on stock axles. At least thatís my experience. And I only launched the car maybe 5 times

Aye scary! How were you launching? Launch control? I was just gonna slam the gas down at the track once the tree hit the 1 set of yellows!

Launch control is useless. If you're using mt streets then you'll break the axle. If you're on regular tires and you spin off the line then you'll most likely be ok. I did quite a few runs at the track with nittos nt05 and was fine. Once I put on the mt streets I snapped the left side axle on the 4th run.

Yeah, I broke mine with 315 R888's on. They hooked extremely well at the track. I track is also very well prepped. This cars are not made for quarter mile, too heavy and the drive-train is weak. My brother has two zr1's and we have put those things through hell and they keep ticking. I love the M6 though. Great weekend warrior car.
