Default Destroyed Nitrage Rear Diff, Help?

Hi all,

I was out dirt bashing my nitrage, doing some donuts and a few jumps, nothing out of the usual, however this time I destroyed the rear diff. There are 4 cap screws that fasten the diff case to the main ring gear and they completely sheared off which led to the destruction of the case and diff gears. I have the 2 speed kit fitted and have heard from one on the net that the rear diffs don't hold up to well after the hop up?

What can I do to help the load on the rear diff? I dont want to go back to the original single speed with centre diff. I was thinking of backing off the slipper clutch a little more to further soften the drivetrain shock. Anyone got any ideas?

Cheers all.

Surprised that no one can help me.... Anyways managed to help myself in the end, I found an aircraft grade aluminium diff case which is surprisingly well priced that will for sure should sort this issue. They are available for many other brands of car too. As well they have some pretty stylie polished heatsinks.
