risk for transmission ?

I am planning to take my 2012 GT to the quarter mile track for a few runs, to test my times with recent mods.

Considering my dyno numbers (peaks at 404 HP , 401 foot-pounds), this is roughly 470 HP and almost as much engine torque, and the transimssion is rated to a torque of 380.

Do I risk to loose it while doing my best at pushing the car to the limit ?

PS : Car has 19K miles and was not beaten too hard yet.

The stock drivetrain is more than capable of handling that power. Especially in street tires. Just remember to be smooth. Shock is what breaks stuff.

The transmission torque rating is also assuming a much heavier vehicle like a truck (it is a truck transmission)
