    They have a shaky reputation at best. The problems have apparently been fixed, but I know some of the newer sets have broken as well. Any valve spring can break, but with beehive springs' track record, I know I wouldnt use them.

    Beehives are fine. The PAC 1518 and COMP 26918 are both great beehives. COMP had some problems with a few batches quite a long time ago. No one has problems with the PAC 1518 beehive springs. They are very reliable.

    Most spring failures are more operator error. Choosing a spring that cant handle the camshaft features and improperly installing is usually the case. Beehives in general, have no problems to speak of.
