The toe compensator is just another set of bushings to locate the rear wheel during acceleration.
DLF bushings or no, I would still run them. Esp for a drag car; you want it a strong there as possible. The more it moves,the more the rear wheels aren't pointed exactly the same direction.
They have large bushings and very little compliance; they might move 3/16".
Unlike the rest of the bushings.
If you make it solid, I'd make it stronger than the original stuff; since it won't be bending, it will break at that thickness.
I'll bet solid welds weigh less than 40lbs of rubber and steel...
