342 REAR GEAR W/A8

I have a 2016 SS A8 and am thinking of changing the OEM rear gear to 342. Anyone on here ever done this? The car is street driven some but mostly drag raced.

Not the same ratio, but this is a good read.

There aren't any aftermarket gears for the 6th Gen Camaro. The ring gear is welded onto the carrier. You have to swap out the entire differential if you want to change gears.
