Axle wrap?

Will axle wrap be an issue with a 5.5" block running the Hot Damn tune?

axle wrap is a little bit of an issue with even stock blocks, we are pushing alot of power down, i would most def. recommend traction block and bars from OUO when running the high tunes, i dont have any yet, but i plan on getting some

keep in mind though it is not a MUST you are ok without them, just IMHO it would be a good idea to be running them.

check out PMF, Trevor makes each set to order and they are bit less $$ than the ouo bars.

im planning to do mine next spring and going to order a +1" integrated block so i can just get leveling spacers up front
