    I dont know how much time you are ok spending swapping transmissions out but if it were me i would probably be trying to build a tunable clutch release setup and then seeing if i EVER broke another...

    Not sure if that option is present among all the different engine management in this thread. Are there self-contained units that reference wheel speed?

    Well, if you got rid of 5th and were willing to do some work i can see making some tapered roller bearings work at that end of the trans too, or maybe a thrust roller bearing (torrington type thing)...

    One of the things i mentioned to Brent at one point is that for a race car that doesn't NEED 5th gear, you could remove those gears and and add more bearings and another support plate to that area. I...

    Well, i dont think anyone has exactly used the stock trans to its potential and found the limit either, and if enough people give up on it, we will never have to find out! Hooray!

    Yeah screw all that! I think if you stick to 24.5s and maybe invest in a hydro clutch conversion with a tunable release like what's been talked about, then you can quit worrying about breaking stuff...

    Re: BadAss SRT-Z - 2.4L / A568 - Update!!!

    Well, i think the main thing is preventing load 'spikes', and to my thinking, if the 26s are easier to wrinkle and harder to spin, they are probably worse about that spike than a smaller slick. ...

    Are you using an equal-length axle setup or long pass side axle?

    Torque steer? Might be a problem with 10-second car torque on slicks? Just a thought, not a strong belief yet. :)

    The rest of the axle end is thicker as well so you'd need to machine everything it passes through to the larger size. Still may be a possibility.

    I'm thinking the same thing as Moparman: If the 568 is holding the power with that thinner ring gear flange, seems like you could machine down the flange on the 850 diff to the same thickness, or...

    Re: BadAss SRT-Z - 2.4L / A568 - Update!!!

    ^ Excellent! If the ring gear can be made to go onto the t850 diff carrier, the carrier itself is almost guaranteed to be workable in a 568 case.
