That's just bad luck! Hope you get it fixed!
I do not think your mounts would have caused that. The torque applied to your drivetrain will be limited by traction on the tires anyway. My guess is that repeated hard launches caused it. Driveshafts can break anytime you know.
Anyway I wish you luck! When you get that fixed why not drop in a performance clutch? That could bring you well into the 13's.
my tranny is fixed?? i said that in the first post.
also the mounts were a contributing factor in the failure of my tranny, heres a good example from boosted2.0 on ncorg...
Speaking from a strictly Physics based point of view, I think that its actually very safe to assume that the solid mounts were directly related to the failure. Illusive has said that the last compound he used was substantially more solid than the ones he used previously. Keep that in mind.
Now go get a pencil and hold it by the eraser. Press down on the pencil with your finger and the eraser bends. Press harder, it bends more. Now grab the pencil on the wood by metal eraser holder and do the same thing. You can easily feel that there is a HUGE difference in the pressure being applied to the shaft of the pencil, and if you apply too much or too quickly it will snap.
Elastomeric compounds absorb stress and shock in the drivetrain and allow those forces to dissipate through partial movement of the engine assembly. Those forces would otherwise be applied to the gears. Its just like what the eraser did on that pencil. Remove that shock dampener and not only do the gears take a bit more strain, they start taking a LOT of impact shocks like from wheel hop. Mind you they might not have caused the failure by themselves, but they certainly cause added vibration, shock, fatigue and INCREASE the CHANCES of stress related failures such as gear teeth sheering or case or mount bracket breaking.
Remember - energy can neither be created nor destroyed. If you apply a great amount of torque from the engine then that torque has to be relieved by either wheel slip, clutch slip, engine & transaxle assembly movement, or vehicle movement. If these things combined cannot dissipate the applied energy, then something will break or bend. This becomes more true when the wheels hop or slip and grip suddenly.
I also already have a aftermarket clutch TRD
