I know on a previous topic some people were talking about building one, using the mn12 bodys but never did hear how they did.Just curious if they gave up.

If it's a V8 or SC car it will have an 8.8 center section. That should hold up fine. I'd be more worried with the front spindles. They're kinda long and thin. The rear lower arms are heavy as **** and no problem, the uppers would be fine if boxed in.

If it stayed together, it would fly. Having IRS, rear toe and chamber adjustment and fully adjustable front end would make getting that perfect setup a little easier.

To bad IRS cars are illegal around here.
