Does your car have a slipper clutch installed? If it has, it can allow the spur to slip in case of extreme loads, saving the motor, and transmission. If it has one, chances are it's been too tight, and barely allows slip. While this gives max acceleration of grippy surfaces, it will also mean the pinion/spur get every single added load transferred directly.
