I have faith in my builder. He's been doing it near 25 years. And they actually make and race some of the fastest Drag Cars in North America. Mig or Tig, there are up sides and downsides to both. I actually had a conversation with Joe Aquilante of Pheonix Perfomance Racing (GrandAm guys) this past weekend at NJMP about the car. I trust his opinion and he thoroughly enjoyed the car. So, I'm confident in the design, weld and strength. But thank you for the comments. I do appreciate them.
