Question BA Gearbox and diff strength?

q1) How much of a hiding can the diffs on the BA take? (The old 9 inch's were so good they still put em in drag cars and run them with huge slicks.)
q2) Auto gearboxes in XR6T, how good are they? ( I hear they're basically the same ones used in EA or EB. If so, what happens when the boys start modifying the turbo etc?.)

I'd be tipping there's not much margin for error in the diff and I know there's none in the gearbox - but having said that drivelines survival is always a matter of how hard it's driven and where the torque is developed rather than horsepower numbers.

Cheers
