Well that better launch comes with more drive line stress...

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

No. The drive shaft will experience the same stress as a rwd or 4x4. Chances are trans or less likely t case. But the chances are low at stock power levels.

So if I don't mess with the gears or the power really any further then my tune my transmission will be alright? Is it creating extra kinetic energy or something that would cause it to strain and break?

Well the stock 545 should be good for about 450 to 500 whp before it lets go. Its more of a frictional stress on the clutch packs

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

For some reason my bass is cutting out when the volume is low, im using the output from the BA factory amp which is full range, as input to the bass amp. Im concerned as this was not noticeable before... Guys in the shop claim i need to add a signal filter pre bass amp. Its gonna be a work in progress as i just got back from South Africa and have to travel to Saudi and Oman this week, bring on the airmiles

Im not too familiar with your setup or the ba amp, but maybe you have a ground coming loose. I had a similar issue of my bass cutting out. Ended up being my grounds being loose. But I wasn't sure on the exact cause so I also upgraded my ground wires using battery cable found in military trucks. Got it from the motorpool on the spool we had laying around. Wanna say its +0 gauge.

Hey man, i have a heavy gauge ground wire, i also thought it was the case, but to reproduce it i need 'quiet' periods in a track with no low frequencies and then it cuts out, therefore suspect a signalling issue from the source amp... Could be wrong though... These things take time to get to the bottom of, so will leave it in the workshop with the tech guys in a couple of weeks, once i stop all this crazy travel!

I guess thats best bro. The professionals can handle it. I would think also that it could be a loose wire if not ground then in the signal wire to the amp.

Yup, its been years since i have done any electronics and wouldn't wanna add to the problem

Im beginning to suspect the wheeling trips might have disconnected something in the BA amp, so most likely will turn up when we take the rear quarter apart ...

When mine was doing the exact same thing it was my wires going to the sub. The negative was on so poorly it might has well have not even been there the wire had been frayed I'm sure you already checked this but if not do before you spend any unneeded money like me 27$ for a best buy line converter
