From what i've heard, the torque is what actually causes drivetrain damage. Is it a sprung clutch or springless? the springs help with the ease of the clutch engangment, clutch judder, and helps with the sudden impact that a clutch naturally causes. clutch materials also play a role as well. read unibombers first post about clutch materials and it will help you choose what is best for you now, and current upgrades. a tranny upgrade would benefit regardless the reason-reliability or performance. It just costs quite a bit. RECCOMENDATION: if you change your tranny/gearset change your clutch/flywheel at the same time to save you money.
