The difference between 2.7 crank and the RSR crank was the fact that the RSR crank had 911 SC journals (narrow & larger diameter) with a large radius. In essence a 3.0 SC rod with special bearings. The narrow journals allow for wider fly weights making it considerably stronger.
As I said before, there are those people who will say "they rev their 2.7 to 8000 all the time with no problems" but that is not the norm.
If your theory is correct about the mag case being the problem not the crank then why would they redesign the crank even after they had the aluminum RSR case?
