Then there is the question about wheelies and the loading on ceramic bearings. Are they fragile?
Adger, you are correct, the static loads are way higher on an tapered bearing when compared to a roller bearing. The current offerings require the front hub to be machined to fit the roller bearing. The friction is way less in a roller bearing when compared to a tapered bearing. If the ceramic bearing is not an offshore piece, but a bearing manufactured to the right specifications and materials, it should not fracture after a wheel stand. The loads after the car lands as a result of a wheel stand are way higher in a tapered bearing when compared to a roller bearing.

Brandon I thought you were building a titanium 8.8 deal ?

To be honest with you I haven't settled on a rear gear yet, still debating on the 26" tire vs the 28". I like the shorter tire, lighter reciprocating weight idea, but I also like the larger rollout with the 28. Duffy is doing something totally different from everyone else with our 9" ARB set up. The first 330 is so important in C/S, especially the 60' but you already know that. Last time I spoke with Don he was trying to get me to buy a set of his 4:90 gears. As one of his customers you know that translates into a minimum of 1K for the gears alone LOL

I was meaning for the PS car.

CS with a 28" tire and a 4.90 may be spot on. But like you said a simple gear change is big money for a dewco

I would love to go back there but I would first have to find a buyer for everything from the Crate Motor, to the headers, clutch, Bellhousing, damper, k-member ect. Hopefully it works out for the class and it comes back to what it was at its peak. I am keeping my options open if it continues to grow and looks like it will stick around

When I first ran my 68 Impala back in 2004 I had 4:88 street gears in my 12 bolt (w/ Moser Spool, axles) On my 17th pass i broke those gears , 6000 RPM clutch drop, 4100 car. I then replaced with a Pro Gear set, never had a problem since-stay away from "street gears" for any racing- just my experience.
