I wasn't trying to say a 400 was "so weak" that a small engine would blow it up. I was more curious about the validity of the claim that the heli-cut gears were weak.
heli-cut gears WEAK
You ever look into the tranny's that are in todays BIG RIGS: Kenworth-Freightliner-Volvo-Ect. They all have these gears in them.
Grave Digger STILL runs these trannies in some of the trucks and they are putting out 800-1800 HP (Depending on truck)!!
They have been "beefed" up also.....extra Clutches/Sprags/Case Savers/Ect......
