They basically hold up to everything EXCEPT that. Drag launches and Torsens don't mix. There are a few folks doing it, but they really know what they are doing.

Still sucks, though. I lost my first 4.10 Torsen to the same thing. :(

After opening it up and seeing the gears, I don't blame the mechanic that installed my bearings. I just chalk it up to worn the **** out and couldn't handle the new power lol.

I don't blame the guy who did the setup.... I'm just sayin....


I lost track a LONG time ago how many 7000rpm dumps that thing has seen. Seriously think its in the range of 200+ times, even quite a bit of abuse when the car was supercharged... while its slightly more powerful now, I can't imagine it has more torque @ 3000rpm than the Supercharger... but I guess only the dyno plot will say for sure.



Yeah, kinda weak... Never got any of the really good donuts on video. Just a quick example.

Whoops, missed that bit. Yeah, no argument here.
