Well I finally found a limit to the trans. It has the suncoast rebuild with all the billet shafts. I broke the OD basket/gear set. Cracked it on both sides almost the whole way to the outer edge. Heres some pics.

Haha. No one wants a truck from me nor my friends. My buddies 07 tahoe needs a new bumper/grille and a mirror cover, and other buddies new tundra needs a new rear pass. door from a log coming off of a tire at 60. All from one weekend. Lets just say they could take video of the crap we do and use it in their truck commercials. LOL.
Also bent my drivers side tie rod from getting to much air. lol. Trac bar drop bracket hit it.

Glad you posted the pictures, I went ahead and sent them to Ron @ Suncoast.

We've already busted the hub for the sun gear on the low/reverse planetary on our race truck; looks like other hard parts will become an issue now. Good news is that with these, Suncoast is already tooling up to make 4340/300M parts for anything we can break.:thumb:

Here's a picture of the low/reverse hub to add to the carnage.

Spartan, nice carnage. Thats a nice break. Cant wait to get more suncoast parts. They def. have great stuff.
Im running the 310. No nitrous was used to break that part.
It sucks to break trucks but mine lasted me all weekend and broke on the last night. We def. got the use out of them.

Haha. I think Ill keep those for when I see you guys at diesel events. The stuff we were doing was for the most part legal but how we were doing it would be questionable:beer:

Keep breaking stuff, I'm saving for my suncoast stuff and I only want to do this once and so far the only hard part they have is the input shaft.
