    This swap is going to SUCK. especially in a cornering situation. At speed the extra weight will jump in and rock the front end out.

    You'll do a tire change every 5 laps. Maybe if you did mile oval, and avoided most of the circle tracks out there... got something with a high bank.

    I wouldn't do it.

    well i just started the swap 2 days ago im just sorting through all of the wiring i dont need and cutting it out. i was thinking about just switching the CV joints on the trans side and leaving the hubs and spindals and that side of the axle for the 1.5 would it work or just bust the axles right off???
