I own a 2001 v6 mustang at the moment and my expirience with snapping axles on stangs is more than most people now that i have a rsx-s i dont feel like doing it all over again. So how much power can the front axles and rear axles take just as an added precaution. I plan on goin closed deck stage 2 cn turbo with a new set of cams and a reflash of somesort and all that good tuning so you guys know what kinda power ill be pushin.

Well, normally, you snap axles when you have too much torque AND too much traction.

Even a 300whp Type S doesn't see much over 200 lbs of torque
at peak power, and given the fact that people who does try to drag launch the car get nothing but wheel spin(which is a good thing since the energy is being released rather than being exerted onto the drive axles), I think you should be OK in the axle department.

Now, if you see yourself drag launching in slick tires on a daily basis.........
:dontknow:

That would be a different story.
