    seen em in my 5.0 mag, so i checked em out online. i noticed theyre 50 or more dollars cheaper than any other brand out. also claiming they are "stronger and have more clearance" than other rr. anyone have these? any reason i should avoid them?

    i dont have them but a few people i know that did said that they are junk, said that they are a low quality of aluminum/steel and they cant handle any real power and they bent and break and throw themselves out of alignment

    I run'em on my car. No problems...yet. But I don't run ridiculous spring pressures either. The new cam coming though has some AGGRESSIVE ramp speeds so that may change....

    after posting this i did a search on the corral. no one had anything bad to say about em. ed curtis sells em with some of his cams, so they cant be that bad. if i change my mind ill just run the tfs ones.

    For a mild street car...they'll be just fine. Make sure the poly locks are TIGHT when you put them on.
