There is nothing in the upgrade list about axles. Drag radials or slicks on a car with that much power will snap the stock axles in a heartbeat. It would need another $1,500 in axle upgrades just to run a sticky drag tire. Hothemi may have an entirely different vision for the car than to just be a one dimensional drag racer.

Congratulations on a very nice car!
