Yes torque pushes the pinion towards the side plate. A way to eleviate this is to reinforce the side plate and use a LSD. The LDS will apply the torque to both sides of the case instead of just one. A buddy of mine built a cradle for his transaxle to use for street racing after exploding his 3rd 915. It still proved not up to the task when the actual case cracked while speed shifting into 3rd gear.
