I've seen stock axles hold up fine with slicks, but I've also seen them snap on the first launch.. It would be good to have higher gears to go with drag radials so it doesn't just bog the car down when you launch.

My non PI 4.6 with bolt ons pulled a 1.69 60' on motor dumping the clutch at 5500 with drag radials, 4.10s, and Moser 28 spline axles.

Drag radials are actually harder on axles then slicks. Reason- slicks are usually soft walled and crinkle at launch giving a little relief from the torque. Drag radials (when they hook) dont usually crinkle beacause they are a radial tire, so all of the torque is directed to the axles/drivetrain.

drag radials will wrinkle up,just not as much as a bias ply slick.Tire shake is what will hurt parts.Dr's do tend to shake if your suspension is not up to par.

It dosn't make a diff how much $$ you spend on the suspension it is still going to shake the tires a few times before you get it figured out. Radials are very hard on parts buy the best rearend stuff you can get. Been there done it.

I upgraded axels and put in a spool and agree with the above post that radials are hard on the car I have seen stock axels break with drag radials on a 4.6 with a vortech v2 making about 440whp
