unless building a mini buggy or something (motorcyle engine powered with atv tires) there is NO WAY i would recommend installing a dana 30 into ANYTHING, granted they can do ok in the vehicles they came in stock, with a weak motor and smallish tire. But why spend money on one when you can have dana 44 stuff for cheap? and much stronger,better to build off of.

Normally I would agree but in this case it depends on what it's going into, there are some rail type mud cars running huge horsepower running dana 30 fronts, they don't run a tire on the front with a whole lot of tread and the tires aren't on the ground much anyway.

This is exactly what I was going to say about the 30 front. There's many mud racing guys that run a 30 front/12 bolt rear or 30 front/9 inch rear setup to be as lightweight as possible, and they run rediculous amounts of power. They're so light weight that axle strength isn't really an issue.
