nice, but how expensive is it to build one that can handle it? is it worth the money

Which 8" will "easily handle 500hp" and under what driving conditions? Superdavid on this board blew up his 8" with far less than 500hp. FWIW, I routinely killed the LSDs (factory and Auburn) in an 8.8" behind 400± hp.

IMHO the cost of building a "super 8" is similar to the cost of building a 9 so I would go with the 9 to have even better strength and more options (gears and differentials) for nearly the same price.

Yeah I've blown a 9 with around 400hp/tq. Ripped the splines off the axles and blew up the spider gears.
