how much can it take?

Just wondering How much these drive shafts/ half shafts and rear ends can take
speeds/horse's/torqe without tearing themselves to peices? and if it comes to that fact that they aint gonna be strong enough to stand up to 400+ horse power what am i going to do?!?!?!?!

Ted Lyons has run over 450hp (now 560+) to the wheels of his Bird through two full One Lap of America race "seasons". He's got a Winston Cup spec'd driveshaft and Raxles halfshafts, but these are upgrades anybody could do. His survives just fine. Transmissions have been his main weak link.

God Bless and Fly Low!
