They use them on drag cars and sand rails all the time. And my chassis guy said no problems also. So I wouldnít think so. We are still gonna add some bracing still anyways due to the extra power. You know my stuff, I wonít build it and race it if itís not safe. So it might be a little overkill in beefing before itís done.

And Iím just waiting on my chassis guy to call me to weld it all up. Iím ready as soon as he is finally !

100+mph in the 1/8 would be nice. But anything close Iíd be happy also. Iím hoping for a low 7 second pass in the 1/8. But may not get there with the stock engine.
