The thought is your exceeding Manufacturer Specs and your failure point is at the frame stressed between the 2 FAW fatties pummeling at the Timbren. You may get away with it, but you'll receive the whole brunt IF the investigation points to that Timbren. Some guys may run them, however imo they are starting out gambling( to make it or ignorant.
