nah the unsprung by itself wont kill anything but the combination of copper/ceramic pucks and unsprung will.

my organic twins are unsprung and it drives real nice. probably 20k (?) on the twins with about a third of it ceramic-metallic disks.

I've got the ACT 6-puck. It took some getting used to, and reverse is still a huge PITA (4k+rpm or it shudders like crazy) but it's not undoable. If I had to do it again I would test-drive an ACT XD before I hopped to the HD w/ the 6-puck.

Wow thats horrible! Nice suspension setup by the way. I'm thinking about going with soemthing that can handle even close to 280whp. I don't know what to expect with this T25. And it's going to be a track rat so I don't mind the stiffness.
