Default Pinion gear shaft snapped

Bringing back an old issue. Went out for a drive the other day. Car has been feeling great and so I decided I would try and roast some tires. Dropped the clutch and heard a loud pop. Car would go into gear, but it would move in any gear. coasted to the side of the road and called my good friends at makes and models. I was fortunate for them to come save me within 1 hour. They pulled the pinion shaft out of the diff and it is snapped in two.

does anyone recall what the best replacement part is for this?

Once again Glen at AMH comes through like a champ. I ordered the upgraded diablo SE30 ring and pinion gear set from him. 43 teeth instead of 41. Stronger and more acceleration!

Correct me, please!
So you have the engine / oil pan in the car, just pulled the pinion shaft?
Curious if they are gonna set clearances with then engine in the car. Might be painful. 😐

We will have to see. The owners manual mentions it is possible in the car.
