Eric, the Eagle drop box will handle up to 2600 ft lbs of torque several Eagles are running 625hp with 2000 lbs of torque never have a dropbox problem, the ring gear and pinon is the problem you all ways lose those when trying to backup if not careful.
A good 8v92 will rip those also I have 2 here at the house to prove that.  
With a DDEC you can program the start torque that is what I would  do to save the ring gear you think drop boxes cost a lot to rebuild just wait  lol  



good luck
