Yes, but it will f-up if you do nothing anyway, so you might as well...

Seriously though, 31's aren't so different than 29's that it will be the biggest deal. How hard to you beat it on a day-to-day basis? If you're already ragging it pretty hard, then it might be the "last straw", lol...

you will only be hurrying the inevitable. Eventually your tranny is going to go. Now the question is do you want it to go with 29's or 31's. The 31's will look nicer. Really you shouldn't kill that tranny too much sooner unless you are punching it constantly and trying to burn out and so forth.
