what am I going to break

I'm curious what will break or wear if I constantly bang gears and chirp the tires. On a closed course

I believe Hot Rod once had an article on what you will break at what HP levels, and track mods that you would need to make. The article was geared toward 1/4 mile, but still a good place to start. Check Oct,Nov issues of 2012, I think that was when the article was.

Constantly? that's the issue, how long you gonna keep that car? Beat it up and trade it at about 60k miles and let it be someone else's issue

Maybe not constantly but often, probably wear on drivetrain? I would like to keep it for a while over 100,000
