The DeLorean transmission can handle quite a bit of power. Up to about
300hp or so. You just can't go out and dump the clutch all the time
trying to do burn outs. That is the stress that the two-piece input
shaft can't handle. It's just like the new Ford Mustangs. They don't
use live axles, but rather half-shafts and CV joints on their rear ends.

A coworker had a '04 Cobra, with a super charger, and dyno'd at about
a little over 400hp at the rear wheels. I'd seen him drag it, and he
NEVER broke the rear wheels loose. Not once did he ever have a problem
with the rear half shafts. One night, we saw 2 seperate Mustangs snap
their half-shafts just doing burn outs.

So it's the same thing. It's not that the DeLorean 5-Speed tranny
can't handle the power output, it's just that you can't abuse it.
