Slipjoints... what motor do you use???

I built a slipjoint, runs low 10s with 38 degree american arm S16-d & twister setup, ties right behind the hinge, 1 3/16" x .300 tires, 15/54 gearing. Now one of my buds says this is too much motor for a slipjoint.  What do you all use?
I have tried 1" tires, but the taller ones are faster; also tried .450 wide, but this seems to be the best combo, best time 1.007 1/4 mi.

Re: Slipjoints... what motor do you use???

I have a ceramic quad mag 12 motor in my B&B dragster.  1 3/16 x .300's, 12/56,  runs .780's @ 70+ mph with very light glue.  I dunno, I've run a vr12 motor in mine with 1.070x.500's and ran into the .6's....  Too much is never enough in my book....   .

Just an update, gave up on slipjoint rails, just build hard-tales now... much less drama.
