All this is a hypothetical, so bear with me.
Lets say, you had a strong engine, and a perfect pulley set up where nothing slipped. Now, take all that, and add PERFECT traction. Now, alone, all of these may be good right? But what about together? I'm saying this because if I were to pull something that REALLY tested my engine, what's the possible outcomes?

Something has to give somewhere, in your case belt probably first, since its the softest part.

Transaxle next likely, since its ttransferring the power.

I'd say the transaxle, splines, key ways, belts and motor.

NOTHING'S stronger than the weakest link.

HOPEFULLY, just the keys. In REALITY, the tranny would likely grenade. Probably one of those sintered gears.

Hm, This is all hypothetical, and by all mean most of whats listed is hard to accomplish, Im was more or less thinking long term damage to the engine.

Assuming the engine is healthy, there's not much potential for damage. A load too great will stall it- that's all. That's also assuming you're not dumb enough to rev it up to 9 million RPM and dump the clutch with such a load. You do that, you got what's coming...

Full throttle with that load?

No problem. It's not the load that will F it up- it's shock. PROPERLY applying a load that is too great won't do it. The shock load will.

I know from experience, that revving a 2.2 litre hemi, up to 4 grand, in reverse, in 4 low, on slick cement, and dumping the clutch.....

will twist a transfer case right out of the frame. cheers

I learned from it Very Happy and it Was fun.
