At 550hp you need something better than the OEM hardware. The ring and pinion won't be able to handle that kind of power for long. I would plan to do a 8.8 instead.

You've been here 6 years and you don't realize there are no 550hp cars floating around? Buy a corvette and get your 550, Miata is not the platform to do it in.

You mean how much horsepower can the axle and hub handle? Around 300-400 and they start breaking with drag launches. Ask this guy:

He was breaking them somewhere north of 350 if I remember correctly.

I would say its less power than that, CSP cars break them from time to time at ProSolos and those have drag launches. Thats like 150-190 hp, with 275 wide slicks. From tintubas perspective and kind of mine as well. You want to break axles, because it means you're not breaking the diff, the driveshaft, or the transmission.
