They just do not tolerate detonation, It's not a hp number.
Werd... I made 512 comfortably on stockers, running about 11:1 a/f's up top...

I'm just nearing 400 and I'm breaking traction with brand new Pirelli 275's and a Torsen diff. How do you guys use 500+???

That's funny as hell, 512 is the highest hp number I have gotten on the 7M and that was with a lot of "tricks". The very cool ITS custom turbo that I am running is most def maxed out at 22psi---I can only imagine the amount of heat that was introduced with the extra 6 lbs of boost and 7200 rpm--wastegate problem which has since been fixed. There may be a new and much better turbo setup in the near future after this thing is broken in and the kids go off to summer camp.

I thought you were past 550 already??

What kind of tires do you use on the street? I'm thinking of getting the top-line BF Goodrich G Force and relocating my battery to the rear. I was just barely holding traction in all gears with the 3.93 diff but now the 4.10 Torsen breaks loose in 2nd. If I could just get it to stick it during WOT it would rock!!

Get sickier tires! I have broken ring gears, bent control arms, transmission mounts, etc all from hard launches. If there is a hint of water on the road I have no traction either. You'll get used to it, after all, it is not a bad thing.
