Oh, I'd say about 17k on that tune, on a newly-built motor. It had run over 50k on a VF39 with no issues.
Pulled out to do a 3rd gear pass, got past the car, then "vroom",as the gear stripped.
I followed the standard WRX progression - mod, blow #4 ringland, build motor, blow tranny.
Edit: I should also add the tranny had 108000 miles on it when it went. All but the first 10k or so were modded in some fashion.
