    hey i hadplanned on buyign an eaten posi but then i saw that this guy was selling a 8.8 31 spline unit from and f150. practically brand new. Can thye hold their own? I also heard the new cobras had them or something. but my question is just if it would hold up to something like 600 horse (with aftermarket axles) on drag radials, not slicks.

    thanks,

    Drew

    well i want this to be a street car too, something that can tear it up in and have chicks begging me for a ride :D
    but seriously, I am gonna have some et sportsmans, no slicks or anything crazy. I dont want my car to hook up decent, just something that copuld handle its own on launches.
