how did you "grenade" it and what were you doing when it "grenaded".
did you ever limp it ever?
grenaded I dont think is the right word. Allisons dont "grenade" like some tranny's. They just slip and burn all the clutch packs into oblivion. If you were racing around running teh Quadzilla on MAX then its no surprise you burned it up. The transmission was designed for "X" horsepower. You put more HP thru it than it was designed for. The Allison is more or less bulletproof at STOCK power levels. Its not going to last its normal 200-300k miles with another 150 hp going thru it. You cant get something for nothing.
Not that I dont beleive you, and dont take any offence when I ask this, but do you think you'd be able to get pics of the cracked drum and clutches?
Mike L (trans expert) may have something to say, but I dont think a Quad would have enough power to crack the C1/C2 drum. It is about 11" in diameter, 3/16" thick, and wieghs maybe 10 pounds...all I can think of is a manufacturing defect :confuzeld:
