Something else I noticed was quite large is the pilot shaft of the new trans.
This is 9310 material and being this much larger speaks volumes...Sorry, I used a handy object for reference as to size...
The first image is the old pilot shaft portion of the factory TR6060...about the same thickness as the lighter...
The second image which shows the pilot shaft to be almost twice as big in diameter is the new trans.

Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

If you can turn, you ain't going fast enough...
