Racenut- yes most of us have had your problems. There is a temporary solution to the pinion gear stripping internally- replace the driveshaft. If you look, the flat spot on the front of your driveshaft is probably rounded and no longer has a sharp edge where it bites into the pinion gear. This allows it to slip forward and strip the gear.

If you look back you will see where Randman did a conversion to TC3 ring gears and says it helped his car a ton.

Hopefully, in the next week or so there will be an even better fix for the car. I have an engineer buddy working on it now. Keep your fingers crossed...
