After all of that you might want to start looking at beefing up the drivetrain(axles & diffs). that is one heck of a mod list, i hope to be at that point one day. good luck man. Brett

i am beefing up the clutch with an rps unit. the bad news is, the weak link will be somewhere else, probably the axles. we'll have to see what happens.

yeah i think the axles would be the first to go. drive it till it breaks then put stronger ones in there.

Not a bad idea to leave a weak link there. I have been thinking the same thing.

From what I've read its best to just keep extra stock axles around because if they break it takes less than an hour to change them out.

Good luck with your car.

well, it seems like you've done your homework. That kingpin is absolutely insane, and he's using the stock shortblock. So it'll be VERY interesting to see how your project turns out. Keep us updated.

Good luck with your car.

yeah but how many times do you want to replace the axles? it can get pricey putting a new axle on there every time you break one. i guess if you baby the car it would hold, but why baby a car that you built to perform like bruce is doing. personally i would drive it till it breaks then put stronger ones in there when it does. something else will eventually break then you just make that part stronger too. either way it will be one hell of a car. i cant wait to see it when its finished.
