Billet Shafts

At what point would billet intermediate and output shafts needed?

The truck already has the billet input, 3-disc converter, suncoast clutches, and a tugger kit. I will be pushing this truck to around 500hp soon and dont know if my tranny is gonna handle it.

I don't see the need for billet transmission shafts with an engine making under 600rwhp or so on a primarily street driven vehicle.

500hp should be cake.

I broke a center support on the last tranny... It had a mild build to it.

Broke a Foward Drum about three weeks ago, only billet part I didnt get... I dont think the shafts are nessasary, but the drum would have been nice. I hope to have a few pictures of the C-6 and 4r100 drums in a few days.

Spun the splines right out of the foward drum. Was spinning in some cinders on the road and when it hooked up... done deal.

Re: Billet Shafts

Mine is almost finished.

Billet input shaft
Billet intermediate shaft
Billet forward drum
Dual load center support
Suncoast coast clutch drum
etc...

Only thing we didnt go with was a billet output shaft... If it breaks I'll update it then...

Of course, my engine will have to be running to make the transmission functional, but that is a whole other thread...

Re: Billet Shafts

i have a billet forward drum and input shaft with GOOD clutches/pressure plates as well as a TG tugger kit/3 disc converter.

I'm hoping it will hold 600+rwhp down the road.

Re: Billet Shafts

Depending on who you talk to, heat and cryo treating stock shafts is alot more durable than a non-treated raw billet shaft, which most are.

Re: Billet Shafts

Fwiw, I was debating on billet shafts when i was having my trans built. John Wood told me he has tested stock input shafts to 1200 ftlbs before failure, so I opted to save the extra money. Most of us unfortunetly will be under the 1200 ftlb mark. Plenty of other stuff to melt down at that lvl.
