I would think so. I snapped mine on the weekend. I ran a 1.62 sixty foot with a 10psi launch. My next attempt was at 14psi, sure to be in the 1.5 range. All of a sudden snap,crackle, poop!

I was talking to Conley's on Monday and he was saying once he hit the 1.5 sixty foots, he blew his. Replaced it with a stock one, went out and blew the first pass. Why take the chance. Nothing worse than breaking it going over 100mph.

turbo-six,

That is exactly what I have in one of my cars, F*ord 9" with 3.50 gears and a spool. This car launches perfectly straight every time and I feel safer running this rearend compared to a stocker.
P.S. - I normally short in the 1.5's
