Broken trans case question....

I managed to get a few more of the kinks worked out of the old truck for Fridays real street drags and I think I also created a few more problems...I was doing my burn out and well I sort of went by the tree, backed up and they told me to kill it and I was leaking something. Here it looks like I broke the case on the trans near the band adjustment screw on the c-6. Is it common to break a c-6 there or is it time for a motor plate and solid mounts? Or is something else going on? The thing that stunk the most is the miss is gone due to ignition upgrades, the air was better than the last time and after the burn out I had my sights set on a 12.700, oh well, if it breaks it needed to be fixed anyway. Any input guys?

Thanks a bunch,

Kyle

I think sometimes the combination of an R servo, F lever and too much line pressure will damage a case. I thought they typically broke inside where the lever mounts however. Not sure if this is your setup.

It does have an "R" servo, but I forget what lever is in it, I put in whatever Frank M told me to use. He also did the valve body for it. I talked to him the other day and he said to try another case so that is what I am going to do, if it breaks again then I will have to dig into it deeper, but the track officials don't like it when they have to clean up oil so I am trying to prevent that from happening cause I don't want them on my case.

Plus it isn't any fun when you spend a bunch of money to go to the track, pay entry fee, gas, etc and break it before you ever get to make a run.
