    A buddy and I were talking over a few beers the other night. He was wondering if the car would need frame extenders? Or any other type of stiffening? I don't want to go down the road like a 69 Nova with a dog track. Since I haven't got my Hell Cat that I ordered on 9/9/14, I was wondering how hard the car wants to pull up the corner with a hard launch?

    Wait six months and 100 drag strip runs. If the doors still close without chipping paint you are good.

    Contemporary cars carry enough extra steel around to not tweak under 700hl by virtue of compliance with safety regs..

    We have been racing the new challengers with up to 1500 RWHP and no issues as far as twisting the car, but on the next level we did do some work as we were cutting weight out and replacing the IRS rear with a straight axle set up, so with the HC's 707 you should be fine...

    I think I'd still like to have the Razors Edge subframe connectors....and a bunch of their other stuff for weight savings.

    Front cradle from Petty's Garage is better than the Razors edge for strength and weight saving, sub connectors are a waste of money at this HP...........
