What is HP limit of the Lightweight Strange non thru bolt aluminum case in a 2400lb car? Is flex an gear life the only issue? Thanks!

I would give Strange a call. I know I ran one in a Heavy 2850 car in the 1.19 60ft range and then 1.13 in a 2450 lb car

I run it 1.06 sixty foot, 1800 Lbs altered with 2 quarts Redline synthetic several thousand passes. Most of those passes were at 1675 Lbs and (1.18?) 5.30-5.45. Just stepped on it a little harder last few years.

I have been .968 in 60ft. with a 1925lb blown dragster. Mine has been in service for five years, with 4.10 and 3.70 gears with no issues.

Not sure it is question of how much power.More question of how much abuse before it has issue.IMO it will take quite abit ,but thru bolt will take more. I think a lot of the time something else fails and the case get blamed for being too weak. As stated above lots of folks have had them in service for while with no problemns.

Now that said if I was buying a new case it would be bolt thru.I can break anything and the best may not last.LOL
