300M input shaft, WTF?

Has anybody else ever twisted a 300M input shaft? Just looking to see if maybe I got a flawed shaft or if I have to much line pressure when shifting manually. I have 3 shims in my accumulators with my sonnax kit. I did it at wide open throttle when shifting from 2nd to drive, and it just barely barked the tires and nailed the rev limiter. With a loud bang of the shaft twisting of course, lol!

I think i just broke a input shaft in my suncoast trans. The sad is i wasnt even doing nothing bad. It has been though 9 kinds of hell. Im going to pray that is what happened.

Mine was the input shaft but come to find out when i got the shaft out of the tranny it wasn't a 300M. I didn't realize this when i put it in. The one I put back in was a billet for sure. The bad part for me was that one end was stuck in the converter and I couldn't get it out. I called Brian at BTS and he traded me out for the price of shipping. I didn't even by the converter from him, so I thought that was awesome customer service. He helped me out big time!! I would highly recommend buying anything you need from him.
