Default Rough ideas on drivetrain power capacities

I was starting to think about the limits of drivetrain? What do you think our transmission, axels & rear ends will handle in hp/ tq? Anyone know of ISF's having bad luck when really using/abusing the car or can the car take it like a champ?

I havent had anything go yet besides RT cats... and I feel like im putting the car through some loops... launched it with nitrous a few times, had 12 hours of road course time. Car has been holding up... knock on wood.

one or two people around here blew their "E-LSD"....

You will probably enjoy the F a tad bit more with an OS Giken LSD or a Torsen LSD..

A mod I will have to do if I plan on drag racing on a more consistent basis.

Only sounds like the transmission could have slipped at the end of 4th during this run. I would say that the 11.9 was due to tire setup and the missed shifts.

Do you mean trap? 11.9 is the E.T

First two shifts were easily tire slip, and not as much as would be expected for how hard it launched and took off, but up top I can detect what very well sounds like trans slip in 4th gear, I agree.
I would like to know the equivalent 60ft time, and see the entire slip for that matter. That trap is a bit higher than your best so far, so it definitely has potential for a much lower ET.

Depending on what kind of driving you are doing will greatly help decide the differential set to go with. The OS Giken is a clutch style limited slip which is predominant over the torsen style in any type of turning/cornering. Let me know when you are ready to upgrade Darbs. I'm able to get my hands on some of OS Gikens latest releases in the US and Japanese models at a great price.

I would also like to see the entire slip because based on Hp alone, this car should outperform mine. I've trapped 124mph with only 500whp(and a dieing bottle) while this car was able to do the same with 130whp more.
