    Angus,
    Shouldn't he upgrade his axles and pumpkin before putting sticky tires on? I've heard of too many Machs with broken axles because of DRs. :flag:

    yes axles for sure, my friend was launching @ 3500rpm with Nitto DR and snapped his axles.

    My list is has follows:

    Moser 31 spline Axles $229
    FRPP 31 spline Trac-Lock $189
    FRPP 4.10 or 4.30 Gears $139

    Now you can launch @ 6000 rpm without worries,

    Good Luck

    Yeah, I left-out the axle upgrade due to a momentary lapse in judgement. :bang:

    I did the 4.30's/31-spline Superiors/31-spline Eaton/T&A cover girdle at the same time, and would recommend a similar set-up for any Mach 1 owner who's going to frequent the track more than a couple of times per year.

    (I always planned on some high-rpm launches, with slicks in my Mach's future this fall... :banana:)
