On race engines the rockers are often released after racing is done to take pressure off the valve springs while the car isn't being used. All of the previous things stated are gathered from info over time, some maybe true, some maybe false, just something to think about. On my built gto i ran very similar springs and put 28000 miles on them with no problems but it was all in 1 year and then changed them after a year because of the things i previously stated
The car is driven quite often. I think your referring to dual springs. Beehive tend to last a bit longer, It was one of the reasons I went with them..
