Haven't run one on my sc buggy for about 4 or 5 years now with no trouble. And all the ecotec buggies I ride with haven't had any trouble. Just protect your oil pan they will break easy. When hitting a rock or something

Agreed. No need on a stock to mild system; make sure you have a good skid pan. If you have money burning a hole in your pocket check these guys:

I could see a need for this is you want to sit the motor lower. Been thinking a lot about this myself, will be following this thread to see what you end up doing.
