How much torque are they rated at?

to give you a little more info into WHY hollow shafts with larger outer diameters are stronger and better than smaller solid shafts...in torsional stress, the torsional stress = applied torque x radius. So, at the center of the shaft, since the radius = 0 there, the stress = 0. so, until you move far enough away from the center of the shaft to start generating an amount of stress that you need to start considering, the material can be removed for weight and therefore requires less torque to spin the shaft. When you start taking into account the shear forces is when you get into wall thickness and that's just determines by the cross section, which you get by subtracting the area of the inner diameter from the area of the outer diameter. Really fun stuff actually! Hope that helps you understand a little about why. "

TY, that is what I am trying to find out, what is a DANGEROUS IAT at 85F, 120F, 110F, 100F, 150F, no-one seems to be able to tell me...

I did some runs early today in 65F temps and got some sick quick times for a K24 996 Turbo, and a measure at 577 rwhp (via PBOX in 4th at 125 mph) "

Exchange is below I was hoping something came out of it.

The holdup really was them testing drivability on their own M3 which they are now happy with.

So, the discs and basket are coming in soon and that's it. We turn up the boost to the max and... judgement day. I'm looking forward to seeing jaws drop.

This setup will handle far more power and torque than my blower is capable of producing and was initially developed with something else in mind but I'm getting it first. What that means is it will be good for the built motor twin turbo M3 setups and the major HP they push.

Just a week or two and it's officially over.

" That's why the SL55k is having continuous dyno run tests and file updates to see where the issues lie. Not just the 55k but also the 63 NA cars also low on torque

I'm confident in 575+rwhp but hoping to match my 609rwtq

I'll keep you posted and thanks for the reply "
