Chevy requires that the rear axle fluid is changed after the first competitive driving even/track day/etc, so that's what I did. They also specify that you should change it every 24 hours of this type of use which would work out to about once a year for me.

Blackstone highlighted that the aluminum was high but probably because it was part of break-in. Nothing else looks out of whack here and I'm sure it would've been fine to run for the whole year, but I would rather play it safe than deal with a denied warranty claim at some point.

Did that smell like grapes? I didn't see any Welch's in the analysis.

It did not have the typical sulfur odor I am used to from gear lube.
