Recently I stripped out the threads for the slave cyl. As well had a problem with the pin for inside the case. If there was a stronger case. I would be the first one in line for it.

Well we shall see what happens after I build my 400whp
Catastrophic failure of the case is pretty rare to be honest, and when it does occur in that area around the axle stub, it's likely due to wheel hop... FWD enthusiasts know all about this. The case isn't so weak that it falls apart, it's just weak enough to flex more than it probably should under load.

I appreciate the offer. Likewise, if you're really interested in seeing the part in person, or even the test fixture for that matter, I'd be happy to arrange a time for you to drop by my home shop and give it a look see. I will have pics of the actual part posted up in a few minutes as soon as the paint dries though. And a couple video clips from my testing should be up on my site as soon as I download them from my camera and format them for internet use.
