Impressive! Is the S-tronic ok handling that much torque? And is it just the graph scaling that makes it look like power and torque climb so rapidly/steeply?

Its a 6hp 28 box - comes on full power by 3k
2bar boost by 2.6k rpm
Oh, I saw a facelift interior gearknob and wrongly assumed it was an S-tronic. Still the old ZF has a torque limit lower than 1000nm? Not that it will insta-destruct at higher torque but still, you're confident this is safe for longevity?

ZF rate this gbox at 700nm but I've been at 980nm for around 2.5 years and now at 1080nm.
Confidence? umm unless it breaks we won't know the limit right so lets keep pushing

Let just say a S5 with 500hp makes around 600nm, Im at 1100nm so its nearly double and I've twisted a propshaft with less torque.
