    Spirited driving on any kind of HP will generate more heat than the diff can dissipate. I'm curious to know if anybody has broken a truetrac with HP alone. So far, I haven't found that number.

    Torque? lol I know some people who do know... and there is a number, I saw Jacks transmissions I believe add a cooler to R154's being used in high hp applications... I believe the same thing could be added to a differential I guess? not sure it would help diffs since snappy torque is generally the killer not hard running.

    Spill the beans, what's the magic torque number?

    My 1J should make a hair over 276hp.

    I've heard a dog box is rough on diffs, anyway.

    Hmm, well I'd have to ask for a specific number, Think everything up to 550whp is pretty solid.. anything pushing those limits starts to gamble.. anything past 600 I hear they aren't reliable, but I don't have solid proof yet besides a decent source. Doesn't mean one can be run at 1000whp. just depends how you use it.

    No one has killed a true trac yet. Axles, axle stubs, wheel hubs, ring and pinion gears, but not the true trac itself yet. One guy was launching on slicks with 700rwhp, didnt break the truck track, was snapping wheel hubs and axle stubs as he had already upgraded the axles.

    So is he going to make the axle stubs and the wheel hubs? If he makes wheel hubs, I might be interested in a set in 5 lug. That would let me run the 8.8 diff with the stock control arms and "hopefully" hold up. At $225 each, i think I can swing that.

    Agreed, 5 lug conversion pieces would do well for the rear. Quite a few folks out there lookin for em.

    Very interesting. Can you just have these drilled for 2 or 3 different bolt patterns for other common swap out upgrades at the same time?
    Saves on set-up makes a more universal part for potential half shaft conversions down the road.
    I would like these, but know I'd have to upgrade at one point to something beefier.
    Perhaps, make a version that will fit a flange 1310 cardan joint... lowered cars might be able to get away from the CV joints with a lesser angle. Just talking out loud...

    5 lug conversion will be a good idea to interest more people

    That also means new wheels and new brakes for the other folks. I'm sure either way will add up costs for the other half.
