The other problem with this is that with that much power, and those wheels, this thing would vibrate so bad the earth would repel it... It would levitate...

I am so glad I got rid of my boat anchors. After all the hassles, it feels good to feel good about my wheels. I know I now have a ton of funds invested in wheels at this point, but I'm now happy with what I have. Makes me smile when I drive my car now. I just had to make it happen and be done with it.

It will happen for you too, PQ.

Can get a 1400hp driveshaft for 600.00 that has 250 miles on it.

Then my drvieshaft problems are fixed and I am getting closer to a bullet proof tranny-back.

Of course, I don't think there is such thing as PQ-proof.
