i only had 220 to the wheels when i snapped my right axle, with drags....but i think that also had to do with the accident i had when i crashed the right side of the rear wheel on a curb..idk

Does he drag race? IMO that's the difference. It might not grenade on the clutch dump, but shocking it over and over is sending it to the grave. A friend of my mine tracked his 300rwhp 1.8 turbo Miata for at least six years on a stock 1.8 drive line with slicks. Probably did four or five events a year sometime more and never had any issues.
