Dragster Full Floater Housing Assembly With Axles & Brakes

Floater Rear Ends separate the load carrying and the torque delivery of the axles. The weight of the vehicle is carried elsewhere on the housing, leaving the axle free to do the job of transmitting the horsepower to the wheels.

Dragster Full Floater Housing axles are not only superior in strength to standard housings and axles, but they’re also much safer. This housing includes our 40 Spline Gun drilled axles forged from low carbon, high manganese, high nickel, and high molybdenum steel. Gun drilling removes approximately one pound per foot when compared to solid floater axles.

Strange Engineering continues to lead the way in driveline technology by introducing the all-new 9” Modular 4-Link Floater rear end for dragsters. Specifically designed for dragsters, the aluminum rear features a lightweight floater design, large 11 ½” stainless steel 2 piece rotors, and billet calipers for maximum clamping force and braking. Stainless rotors are able to maintain shape under higher temperatures than other steels. The floating design isolates rotor from hat to allow rotor growth and minimize distortion.

Carbon Brakes are also available. The premium 206-T4 aluminum housing is available with 16” & 17” 4-link centers, 32” & 33” wheel to wheel, and will accept 9”, 9 ½”, and 10” development ring gears. Other features include an aluminum 4-link brace, integral wheelie bar mounts, and a black “Enduraguard” finish.
