I've got a 10 bolt with an Auburn posi (and a girdle). If I wanted to destroy it here is what I would do:

1. Need about 450 ft lbs or more (502 with nitrous maybe??)
2. Good, tight posi unit
3. manual tranny with a stout clutch
4. slicks, 28 x 10 x 15s? ...the bigger the better
5. a fat friend or two to weigh the car down.

what do y'all think?

A manual tranny shocks the rear a lot more - that or a trans brake.

Torque kills 'em - not necessarily horsepower.

A small amount of C-4 fastened to the pinion nose and detonated from a safe distance should do the job.

This why I swapped in a 67 GTO rear with sealed bolt in Timken bearings rather than "'wet" roller bearings.It is also a lot stronger inside with beefier axles.

drain it and use atf. my buddys kid did it to his 91 camaro.the auburn unit was trashed,and the gears turned blackand ended up with almost 40 thou. backlash in one trip from austin to san bernadino .ca. some auto parts store told him thats what it took.

Get rear ended by a semi? Lol

That or if youve got an automatic, keep it in first gear and while decellerating, hit the gas again at about 3 grand. Similar to dropping the clutch :beer:

wheel hop. you dont need 500hp to destroy stuff. ive seen 260 hp destroy stuff way worse than twice as much with just a little wheel hop under power.
