how much power before you do in the stockers? (on slicks) (on street tires)

not nesseccarily power, its the torture they are put under. radials will beat them badly because they take no shock from the launch. it takes quiet a bit to mess them up, but when they get damage they can go down hill quick. mine were messed up a little and took a few hours to repair and reinforce.

undamaged boxes can be welded up at seams and weak area's. if wanting to make even stronger, just take 16ga. or so metal and make templates to fit weak areas. basic fabing skills are needed, and need to be a competent welder or have some one that is.

i can get some soon. i have the car up on stands right now. me and doc are about to do more work on them since i will be putting down a little more power soon. i have had the car since 33k miles, it hasnt had an easy day, and with more power, the days are about to get worse on the POS.

was wondering if people had bought the reinforcement kits. which ones and from where.
