    so I'm going to take my car to the strip for some fun runs (my brother called me out, lol) and I haven't had the chance to install my subframe connectors. I plan to take off as I would from a red light but more aggressively. I have a basic bolt on stock long block, intake, throttle body, e303 cam, ect. But I also have a 65 wet shot that I wanted to run as well.

    would it still be a bad idea to run the car without the subframe connectors? The body has over 300K miles. Gears are 3.08 and tires have mediocre/decent traction.

    It should not cause any issues at all. But weld the SFCs in as soon as you can.

    I predict blowing the tires off instantly, negating need for them.
