    There is no power rating. It can bust when the car is stock, it can hold out past 450hp. Launching is really never safe...either the thing is going to break or its not, there is rarely any telling when or where. Obviously if you are drag racing and using mickey thompsons, you have a better chance of breaking stuff...I suggest taking the phone # of a flatbed to the track with you just in case.

    Midnight Blue Metalic
    2000 SS

    Mine has lasted through DR's and a 150 shot. I kept my launches to 2500 rpms. It has over 80 1/4 miles runs. About 50 on DR's, and 30 on DR's and a 150 shot. So far one bad bearing but I attribute that to past wheel hop. 79,000 miles and still running strong.
