Still a decent take off and no need for drag radials but not what you would hope for.
    Some Gallardo guys go to rear wheel drive when up in power to not break things. Rear tires can give so the torque can go somewhere in the all wheel drive setup it usually goes to the weakest link then... snap.

    I can comment from the XI side. I'm a FBO xi, procede v5, meth, AT and on e85 from time to time. The track I go to in PA doesn't have the best DAs since I think it's about 1700 feet above sea. My best times is a 12.04 at 117mph at completely full weight(Plus me at 205lbs) but that is only running 93 with meth and 18psi boost midrange tapering to 11psi at redline so there is definitely more room left.

    I have cut multiple 1.6x and 1.7x 60s with this transfer case and probably 50 drag strip runs and it hasn't had a hiccup. The nice thing about the xi is that you can get away without getting built axles since power is going to all 4 tires instead of 2 so the strain is spread out more. As for the traps, I'd say my 1/8th speeds are on par with most fbo rwd 335s because of my launch advantage but down the last 1/8th I probably lose about 3mph. (6mph is definitely too high I'd say)

    Overall, my xi has been flawless on the additional xi components. Only issues with the car have been related to the n54 and not the xi parts.

    Also, on the other forum, we had a group buy put otgether to have Jacks shop I think purchase a transfer case and take a look at the weak parts. He actually just purchased one on his own and tore it apart, his conclusion was that the TC was extremely well made with all the important parts being very structurally sound.

    Yes. He's fairly local to me and I went through a lot of drivetrain parts on my GVR4 working with him to find a good combo. I have no problem with going through the same process again.

    If so, good choice. I guarantee a big turbo launch will break the stock TC. Question is will jack be able to make it stronger. If so, that might turn out to be a bad ass combo. MT XI with big turbo(s)
    That's the plan.

    no. oh god no Click here to enlarge haha

    i meant like trade 10 rep points for a ban in a thread you control, 'reasonable' things in theory.. but things that are still fairly unreasonable in reality hha

    @Carl Morris so the TC has already been looked at and is nice and strong relatively? will be interesting to see how far it can be pushed/launched before it breaks

    When I brought this up to Tony the only answer was that shiv had an xi making 600+ hp and it "seems" to still be fine...obviously that means absolutely nothing. Obvious things though as you prob know is that a good cluth, drive shafts, and fueling are a must.
    Anyone know if an X3 tc will fit/work?

    i trust nothing from the shiv, onbviously Click here to enlarge

He thought the pieces that actually transmit power looked good but if they start failing he'll make something. I'm not sure what else people want from him? Somebody has to actually start breaking them first...if it's me, that's where I'll take it and I'm sure he'll come up with something.
    makes sense. this isnt a huge problem for people yet, so i doubt a fix is there, but cant see one not being able to be done. its common hardware upgrade (isnt that what we thought about the ZF trans..?)

    yes, already commented on. it needs to handle the HP. but building it for drag racing will not degrade 60-160 performance

    He wasn't saying he is trolling only that trolling is not restricted by location or thread starter.

    OT @Flinchy

    I have the uuc ssk no dssr in my '06 330 and the uus ssk w/dssr in my '10 335. The 335 is the shortest and most crisp shifting car I have ever driven, to the point that it impresses me regularly. Had it in for a year and can easily tell the difference when I drive the 330.

    Yes. So far the only question is the worm gear issues that have been seen in a few cases.

    Heh.

    To OP,

    LM I hope that someone does end up pushing the XI drivetrain to the point of breakage; because as you say there's not all that much knowledge out there about it. Most of the people I've talked to about swapping platforms all ask about the XI. So I think there's a lot of people curious about it, just no one actively trying to grenade it as a guinea pig yet. I think opening up the XI option would be great for the platform and community in general.

    As an aside, the rear diff in the XI is still open, so I don't see axles becoming a liability until that is taken care of plus the power necessary to do it (more than a non-XI) assuming the axles are similarly beefy enough.

    Sadly no. I hadn't heard yet. I spoke with them in Sep of last year about beta testing the N54 kit but sold my car 2 month later. Caught me off guard for sure.

    At first I had no idea what you guys were talking about, and then just checked the other forum. Can't believe HPFs is out of business! Crazy!
