Check out the video in the following post. Seeing is believing which is why I ordered a Dimple for my Z.

I'm sorry forgive my ignorance. Is this something that is a big concern for these kind of cars?

My opinion is that metal shavings occur in any engine. Period. In practice, the metal shavings occur more often in high performance engines. Makes sense. It also makes sense to keep those metal pieces out of your engine's moving parts, hence the magnet. Magnets have been used for, wow, I don't recall how long but a long time. Just another precaution that can't hurt but can certainly help. I use them equally in my ZL1 and my other cars.

I am sure the Dimple plug is stronger than the average plug however every average magnetic plug I had has some fine particles on it. If you had metal shavings that size on the video you have problems that no magnetic plug would alleviate.
