Broken 1st gear drum.

About a week ago, I was playing around and launched the truck. I heard a 'thud' and it wouldn't move. Towed it back to the shop and tore apart the transmission to find a broken 1st gear drum. It also seemed to hurt the piston. I have never heard of this happening before and I can't seem to find any stronger drums. Anyone else have this happen? What can I do to prevent this from happening again?
