More than likely that nice new trans would suffer catastophic failure in any number of weak places in the drive train, and, if it did hold they have a tendency to twist the case bad enough to break the VB. [img]/forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/yuk2.gif[/img] [/quote]

yeah, that's why am glad i went with the mag hytec deep pan. about 1/2" thick to aid in support of tranny tweaking a.k.a. 4wd boosted launches.

i have done several 4wd launches since the new built tranny. i never go past 30psi on the launch and it very rarely barks any tire.
