Well, mini spools were made for dirt track racer on low budget and class rules of stock rears...etc.

I am to advise you of the dnagers of the mini spool binding the axle shafts and may cause fatuigue of them ending up in a broken axle and maybe serious accident from a loss of the axle from the housing under a accelerated burn out etc.

I personally used a mini spool in a much lighter monza for about 3-4 years in the same way and did not have any issues..LUCKY? Maybe...

You really need to make the call with your life.

I was young and dumb once and also low on the dough. Just be careful and listen to your conscious. :)

If you had 28 spline axles it would be much better...lol. :?p
