The Falcon weighs 3130,,,,,I know it's not a light weight but I didn't start out to build a track car, it rides smooth, handles as well as it can with big tires and is fairly quiet inside.

Running a spool on the street has to make life interesting. I ran a locker on the street for a short time. It made going around a corner an experience. The ratcheting noise also drove me nuts. I can only imagine what a spool is like.

I know they can do amazing things when it comes to beefing up the C-4 transmission. The planetary gears used to be the weak link. The aftermarket now offers 6 pinion planetary gears that can handle big horsepower. The C-4 also takes a lot less horsepower to operate when compared to the C-6. I think it was a good choice.
