I have a dedenbear case Glide with 1.80 straight cut gears. Trans has approx 20 passes on it. I ran a 8.84 (1/4 mile) on Sunday and then the next pass I armed the nitrous (150 shot) and the trans came apart. Car is ~2950lb with me in it. I'm not a tranny guy, but I don't think these gears shouldn't have broke with what I'm putting on them, correct? I just pulled the pan last nite, haven't got the trans out of the car yet.

Damn, those are usually rated a hell of a lot higher than that. Sorry to see that.
I've also had one of the 2500 HP unbreakable inputs break when a buddy borrowed my trans with a 700 hp street motor.

Looks like I got screwed when I bought the tranny, we got it apart and found stock helical gears in it. :( That explains why they broke I guess. Thanks for everyones input.

Here are the broken pieces, can anyone tell if this is a stock planetary or some sort of aftermarket helical planetary?

You've been had...
A set of Hutch's 1.80's with the cryo and iso treatment would work awesome for you...

how do the godly planets hold up ? how much power have you guys thrown at them and what do your cars weigh? et's ?
My car weights 3350lbs with 750hp and I always double enter. I'll put 20 runs on it in one night. Been running it 2 years now. Foot braking and leaving off the brake. My buddy has the same gear set and has a dragster with 1100hp and he's been running it for I don't know how long. So far so good.
