    throwing on a set of et streets would really help you out hooking up. not too expensive either. do you have any pics of this beast?

    In autos the ten bolts hold up VERY well. Mine has been handling the cam/bolt ons/intkae for a year, and now it's still holding up to the Nitrous. Maybe I have messed something recent since I'm never around but last I knew ED was still on the stock 10 bolt and he makes insane power.

    Power isn't the 10-bolts enemy most of the time, drivetrain shock is. You know, people that think dumping the clutch is smart are a 10 bolt's worst enemy. It's poor driving skill and hard on your car too

    Maybe if your driving. I know numerous people with stock 10 bolts in there car running mid-high 10's. I also know idiots with 12 bolts that cant keep them together. If you dont abuse your drivetrain, they will stay together.... sometimes

    I drop the clutch often. I take it to the track about once every three months and lay down about 5 runs of abuse with 295/35's that hook like mad with trackbite.

    The 10 bolt held up admirably considering the abuse I laid on it, but it didn't last.

    I find it hard to believe under the same torture, the Strange S60 will konk out on me after two track trips, and weekend street abuse.

    That thing is a tank guys, c'mon now. I don't think the S60 will have any problems with my 400+ numbers, even if I slap mickey thompson's under it.

    If it does crap out, I am gonna burn strange's warehouse to the ground for what they charge.

    My nitto 315's have the same tread width as my 275 MT radials.

    I run my nittos at 26-27 PSI all the time. Too much more and you start having wear issues down the center of the tire. Even on an 11" wheel.
