Of course it will still be possible to break a rear end even with this treatment, especially if you are running parts that are way underrated for what you are asking them to do.  if your parts are like Walker's, where they don’t fail often but still do, these treatments will probably make your parts last several times longer or perhaps even indefinitely.  Walker ran our treated ring and pinion at the Formula D season finale at Irwindale and reported that it worked fine.  We think that these treatments will probably solve his future problems.
