I run my cars harder then most at the track but I also use common sence and respect the next weakest link , there is a fine line between abuse and running it hard and I dont cross it and in most cases I dont need to

I had rather work on making more HP through the week then parts I tore up from not using common sence

Make enough HP and you can afford to come out of the hole with a 2.3 60 and still run 10`s on DOT tires LOL
